    Great But?

    • Written by from TAUNTON

    This is a great product, I purchased it with airport time capsule,the thing I found disappointing is that the fact the released the new base station with ac technology, they did not think to update and release the airport express at the same time.

    I will give it 5 stars, because it is based on performance, just disappointed I could not buy the to with the ac wifi technology

    Without a doubt one of the best purchases I've made.

    • Written by from Reading

    This is simply fantastic, my regular router doesn't reach through our whole house but with a power line adapter and this I get the best signal in the house! Plus airplay is a fantastic bonus to me! Well worth the money you are paying for such a brilliant easy-to-use product.

    Brilliant for streaming music to my old and fantastic stereo

    • Written by from London

    Wow, what a huge gift. I have an old stereo I really like. I want to hook it up to stream music from my Mac and/or iPhone. Was concerned that it wouldn't work or that the sound quality would be less than what I hoped.
    But it is WONDERFUL. Amazing. A beautiful tiny white box with a reassuring green light. Thought it would be complicated or that it would somehow interfere with my wireless network. But it's all better than I could have imagined. The sound quality is superb (bought a good quality cable to go to the AUX in the amplifier.
    Airport express works with analogue and digital. It's wonderful. No need to get rid of that old stereo (if it's good). This is the easiest way to bring it into the 21st century.

    Fantastic Product it works even better when paired with apple devices.

    • Written by from watford

    To all pc users stick to cheap unreliable pc world nonsense, to all MAC fans this product is for us, simply it works. If you purchase this item please make sure you have optic broadband to see the full potential if you use a simple BT type and your internet speed is 3meg or less don't bother to use it as a internet streaming device to your equipment, if its only to use for home sharing or access your iTunes then yes its great. The worlds easiest device to set up less than ten minutes to set up via Mac pc, iPod iPad iPhone and the airport utility for windows. Love this device apple do deliver all the time (except thunder bolt adapter, WHY change something that worked really well).
    I install this equipment in clients homes who want a cheap reliable multi-room audio System and I have never had a complaint from clients, Altho they should incorporate video too that would be the best device in this current market. It will give all top manufactures of multi-room equipment for footballers homes a run for their money.
    Highly recommended.

    To the people who leave poor feedback on this device read the online instructions or if cant be bothered to read phone apple support. After all they do have the best of the best customer support.

    Does exactly what is says on the Tin!

    • Written by from Chesham

    I purchased this for its Airplay ability and it has not disappointed. Took no more than 10 minutes to set up (Including the unwrapping!). Airport Utility on my iPad made everything simple, only downside is that I now want more so I have wireless music all around the home.

    4 and counting...

    • Written by from Bedford

    These are brilliant. We have 4 and it is brilliant! You could never have anything this simple with Windows!! Even better is that in the bedroom we have a Tivo box, no power line adaptor needed! Plug ethernet cable from the box to the AirPort and hey presto! Tivo box on the network. In the study we have a printer connected, so easy and simple! If we had more rooms I would buy more, even better use your iPad (remote app) and control it all from one place, just have your mac turned on and you can access your music as well. Apple do know how to make it simple and easy!

    Great bit of Kit

    • Written by from Harrogate

    I bought this to replace the wireless function of my router. It did require a software update but then after configuring, which took all of five minutes. Happy days gone are the problems with wireless printer dropping out, the router trying to find a spare channel on the 2.4GHz range.
    Just solid WIFI performance.

    A breeze to set up and connect

    • Written by from Derby

    Firstly I work in IT (don’t judge me) but I am not a techy so I want something that basically just switches on and with the limited amount of effort get connected.

    My Internet service provider is Virgin Media in the UK and I have the 30Mbps service. I have the Superhub (limited range etc) in modem mode as I wanted to extend the range with my own gear. I have previously run Netgear (still great products BTW) with a base unit and an extender which were fine but older units.

    I had been considering Apple Airport products as everyone I speak to said they are very good and easy to set up but was struck on how expensive they seemed.

    Well after buying an AirPort Extreme and an Express I don’t know why I had not done it sooner. This stuff is amazing. From connecting to the modem and setting up I was connected in 15 minutes with the Extreme as the base station and the Express as the extender. The Airport utility is very simple to use and there are even iOS versions.
    Checking the Broadband speed anything from 28 to 31Mbps all of the time. We have 3 iPads, 2 iPhones, 1 Blackberry (yeah I know), a Windows 7 laptop, a Mac Mini and 2 Apple TV’s. All of them work seamlessly through the whole of the house and will even extend into the garden.

    I did have an initial issue with the first Extreme I received and had to return it but the service I received from Apple was excellent. I generally buy direct from Apple even though I could get it cheaper elsewhere.

    If like me you are not sure about what to buy and don’t want to be bogged down by technical details on how to set things up then look no further than the Airport products.

    A great 'little white box'

    • Written by from London

    Bought one of these yesterday to extend my Time Capsule which is connected to the internet via a Virgin Super Hub.

    So easy to setup - just plugged it in, opened the Airport utility and watched as it found my network, connected, updated itself, and showed me the green light to say it was done. I expected at least 30 mins of sorting the settings, but didn't need more than 10 mins from opening the box to being done.

    It make such a difference when things just do what they are supposed to

    Airport express as a repeater

    • Written by from Widnes

    superbly easy to set up in bridge mode as a repeater for the time capsule. just connect it through the Lan ( wired or homeplugs network) into the airport express Wan port, and connect the ethernet to you pc / Mac ethernet. Use airport utility and select bridge mode and set the network name and WPA2 password on the wireless tab to the same as the main wireless on the time capsule / airport extreme. Your wireless devices will pick up the strongest wireless signal. awesome network coverage now !!!

    Superb bit of kit!

    • Written by from Chipping Sodbury

    I extended my existing Apple Network using both Time Capsules and a Airport Express. In short everything works. Have various Apple devices and the wife has a HP laptop and they all work 100% all the time through a Virgin Media 100mb line. What else can I say, superb and does everything it says on the tin!

    Great for music streaming

    • Written by from KOKKOLA

    Bought this just to stream music from Spotify from my iPad. It has worked flawlessly since I got it for about a month ago. The sound quality is excellent. I cannot hear a difference in sound quality compared to CD on my relatively high end (2000€) stereo system when using spotify on "extreme" sound quality.

    At last 5 GHz!

    • Written by from Warwick

    Even though I had 802.11n routers before I wasn't able to connect with my MacBook Pro in the 5 GHz band. Now, having purchased the AirPort Express I can confirm that the laptop is connecting without any problems and I'm getting 72 MBps in my BT Infinity broadband! My iPhone 4 is also connecting to the Airport all the time (previously it had refused connecting to the local WiFi on different occasions), and I can stream the music directly to my speakers! I am very happy abut this purchase!

    Pointless

    • Written by from Bognor Regis

    I got this, and well, it's pointless. But, I love it.
    It streams music perfectly.
    It has faster networking than my current router
    Shares my printer.
    All in all, I didn't need this in honesty. But, I think it's a good price and I can see how when I move house this could come into play. :-)
    I do recommend this.
    Setup from my iPad was so easy it was surprising.

    excellent product. love the simplicity

    • Written by from Shotts

    Completely unsure what 'Nick W from London' is on about. this is the most simple WiFi/Router I have even had to setup. Great iOS app can setup pretty much everything (haven't found something yet) Although I do like Airport Utility 5.6 better than 6, you can still use any version to access the airport so its great that way. Love the fact it has a power cable and two network sockets now, allowing you to place it somewhere away from the walls and use it as a proper router with a wired network. Kind of dose away with the need for the Extreme for small homes.

    The review that 'Nick W from London' has wrote is either just a complete insult to the Airport Express, or he has bout some cheap netgear router thinking its the same thing, as I don't think any can be daft enough to use apples simple to use products and software.

    Got one of these to extend my existing home network (BT), but also to connect into the hi-fi so I could stream from Mac / iPhone etc - Really easy to setup, and if you get it wrong, really easy to reset and start again!
