    Terrible, where the light is amber

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    This is a terrible product. Having owned two of these, they always end up failing within a year or two. I bought a Netgear, which lasted me 4 years. I am really disappointed, and this is a costly product. I would never recommend this product to anyone. In fact, I think they should have a buyback program for this faulty and weak product. I can't sell my dead airport. I gave the first one a way for someone to hack as a project. Save your money and buy a Netgear for $79. It is much durable.

    Also, this product only has a 1-year product. You can buy it with a laptop, and AppleCare, but who can precisely time when their Wifi modem goes out. This product wasted 45 minutes of my time and Time Warners.

    Extending my wireless Apple network with AirPort Express was incredible easy and it did not take more than a few minutes.

    Such Excellence

    • Written by

    We are IT professionals, and just replaced our 13 (yes 13) year old AirPort with AirPort Express. While we can troubleshoot anything, we really appreciate not having to! This was plug-and-play, and the performance is excellent. And as always, we also appreciate the great design.

    And a tribute to our 2001 AirPort. It worked wonderfully for all those years, only now failing. We haven't been able to use the AirPort Utility for years as the old device was not supported, but it did not matter. How many technologies work for 13 years????

    Wireless bridging a breeze

    • Written by from RIVERWOOD

    I purchased the AirPort Express yesterday, it arrived today and had it configured for wireless extension in about 2 minutes. There are a lot of comments in the 1 star level about this feature not working well and I was worried. After configuring initially (with base station 3 meters from the AirPort Extreme) I had to play with placement to get the best signal.

    Great product and simple to use. Just follow the instructions (or look up YouTube) and be prepared to experiment with positioning to get best signal/connectivity.

    Excellent little router. Lots of coverage and excellent speed, it also looks sleek and subtle. Overall amazing router for the price and insanely easy to setup.

    Not exactly thrilled.

    • Written by from AUSTIN

    I am a devoted Apple man with three I-Macs over 12 years, plus an I-Phone.
    So the choice of Airport Express was a no brainer for me.
    It cratered one week after the one-year warranty expired! Planned obsolesce? Apple so much as said "too bad".
    Additionally, the Internet speed was noticeably slower on the Wi-Fi than on a direct connect to the Time Warner modem.
    To me, A.E. is form over function.

    Great experience

    • Written by from Decatur

    Router is super easy to set up. Now after two years of use, it still works perfectly. Great buy for a lower-range "Apple enabled" network (i.e. Airplay, Time Machine, etc.). Highly recommended for Apple users and PC users alike. Management is definitely more streamlined on Apple devices but I use the PC app now and then and it still has all the features and ease of use. Buy it!!

    Frequent Drops When Streaming Music

    • Written by from Westland

    I bought two of these and use them to stream music from my computer through the two surround sound systems downstairs. The music cuts out frequently making them virtually uses. $200 wasted dollars. I'll be looking for products outside of apple to find a solution to whole-house music streaming.

    Great ideas, but unreliable

    • Written by from Sonora

    I have the current versions of Airport Extreme, and a last gen Airport Extreme, 2 current gen Airport Express, and 6 previous generation airport Express....(the other devices have speakers, and printers on them)

    I love it when it works... ( occasionally) and hate it the rest of the time...

    It is a cute gadget that is not ready to rely on for your home or office. Frequently drops signal, frequently cuts out... Who knows the source of the problem... is it iTunes, is it airport express, or airport extreme...? And don't get me started on Apple TV and it's problems... Want to stream to the speakers on a TV with an Apple TV unit..... ( it will lag behind your speakers connected other devices so badly that you get a persistent echo... Great concept, but execution is lousy !!!!!!!!!

    Lately I'm becoming an "Apple-hater." The hardware does not last, and the networking is not consistently stable.... PERIOD!!!

    Better than expected!

    • Written by from Jackson

    Purchased the Airport Express in order to replace an aging Netgear router that began dropping signal. The setup was a breeze on my MBP, less than two minute in total. I keep the modem and router in the basement but even on the second floor of my townhouse download speeds are blazing. My XBox One, which is on the second floor is showing nearly a tripling of speed, showing a download speed of 28 Mbps and an upload of 7 Mbps. The device itself is of solid construction and much smaller than anticipated. I have two gripes though, it only has one LAN output and that I didn't purchase this sooner.

    Awesome product to make my old pair of speakers wireless airplay

    • Written by from Pyrmont

    I have an creative labs i-trique 3400 which has great quality of sound. I connect them to airport express and it works... it sounds great too...

    I still couldn't work it to extend the range of my non Apple router (Technicolor TG587n v3 from Bigpond Telstra). Some people can make it work,,, but i couldn't be bothered to spend more time =)

    I'm happy with the product... very small, easy to set up, connect to your existing wifi and meets my need!
    If you have a pair of speaker which you want to connect, i'd recommend trying AirPort Express.

    Very easy to set up. Well worth the price. Has never dropped me or any of the devices on the network. I often have friends over who connect their devices and I also use it for airplay. Works wonderfully.

    Great Router

    • Written by from Oakville

    I have owned many routers throughout the years, a few good ones and most not so good. Lately, I wasn't able to find a router that is relatively fast and doesn't restart frequently. Belkin, TP-Link, Linksys, with factory framework, with open-source framework... all had the same problem: the moment the load is relatively heavy... bammm.... they restart....

    That cycle ended when I got my new AirPort Express..... so far it's doing a fantastic job.... especially considering it's located in a different level and is connected to wirelessly to my Apple TV.

    Very very happy! Highly Recommended!

    airport express

    • Written by from LONDON

    this is the solution if you have a talk talk router, simply plug it in connect to your own network and pair your printer to the same network. talk talk doesn't support bonjour which is apples firmware, so you won't be able to air print, but this is amazing easy and apple support are at hand if you need any assistance. Buy it highly recommended,,,,,

    Disappointed

    Did not extend or improve my WI FI
    The airplay was a total disappointment I could not play music without dropping off.
    I'm going to use my TP-LING

    FLAWLESS-Another great apple product!!!

    • Written by from Dickinson

    I have not had any problems with this product and have had it for going on 8 months.
    It was an addition to my existing home (1,800 Sq ft) network. 3TB time Capsule, AirPort Extreme and 1st Gen. AirPort (1st fl streaming) Express.

    Modem and Time Capsule are on 1st fl. and this unit is on 2nd fl. about 40' apart through a concrete wall and floor.This is my only wired connection.

    I use it to extend my network on 2nd fl for Apple TV, streaming music and surfing the net.

    I have read many of the lower rated reviews and as with any router- location is very important. Avoid electrical interference. Do not try to hide this unit if you expect great range-place at desk to shoulder height.

    Very annoying useless gadget

    • Written by from London

    Airport Express is a beautifully designed useless piece of junk. You will have problems with connectivity issues if not owning Time Capsule or such like as well.

    After a dozen or so attempts to resolve the very annoying blinking orange light issue I was confronted with….no Internet connectivity! And no, not only on Airport Express but on my iPad as well. The whole process is counter-intuitive and any help peppered with jargon (to non-geeks). Hey, even the experts could not agree how to reset the irritating thing!

    Needless to say, the item is rapidly making its way back to Apple. I’ll do with the normal cable instead – at least it is working.

    Easy to set up with AirPort Extreme. It took longer to unwrap the airport express then to set it up. Life is good when things go together that easy.
