    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!

    Firmware update needed

    • Written by from Croydon

    While the streamed sound quality was marginally superior to the previous 'in the wall' version there was a constant 'glitch'. Similar to a CD track skipping. Or a timing error
    in the stream. Not a complete dropout but a random sound imperfection.
    Tried forums - no answer.

    Returned via Amazon as not fit for purpose.

    All other APE's (3) work fine.

    Using Netgear DGND 4000 N750 router/modem.

    Excellent

    • Written by from norwich

    Third one of these I have bought, first of the new shape and I have to say I prefer it to the old shape. Having the power cord is a much better option than just plugging directly into the mains, it means I can hide it up rather then is sticking out of the socket. Analogue and optical playback works really well with my sony AMP, wi fi signal in my house has never been better.

    Thanks

    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.

    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.

    Airport Express - Great piece if kit

    • Written by from Farnborough

    Purchased this item 6 months ago to connect to stereo system. Easy to set up even with limited knowledge. Works perfectly with BT hubs but I also purchased the Extreme base a few months ago. What a system I have now. You can also use the express to extend your network which is very useful in a large house or when out in the garden.

    Awesome product

    • Written by from Eastbourne

    Just bought this today as the WiFi on my modem was suffering. This now replaces the whole WiFi network in my house and covers everywhere. Coverage is really good and the speed is exactly what I needed.

    If anyone has a flat or two floor terraced house this is perfect for your WiFi needs.

    Airport Express

    • Written by from Bristol

    Does exactly what is says on the tin, connected up to the new Time Capsule & this extended my network to my upstairs & on to the balcony I am really pleased. However question will Apple improve the airport express to support 802.11ac. ?

    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.

    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.

    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,,,,,

    I bought this today and added it into my network with the AirPort Extreme. I think I did something wrong in the first place but once I worked through the problem it was all up and running perfectly. AirPlay works well, sounds great, the printer is up and running and my wireless is now extended and reliable again.

    A sound Apple Product

    • Written by from Appleby-In-Westmorland

    When my Netgear wireless router died on me, I tried two wireless routers, neither worked. I hooked up an old wired Netgear router and bought the Airport Express. It is brilliant! Just plug in the Ethernet cable to the Airport Express and it configures itself and works like all Apple products without a hitch. Superb!

    Great access point

    • Written by from Macclesfield

    Purchased this to extend an AirPort Extreme Late 2009 over Powerline adapters and did the job perfectly. I haven't had to reboot the Express in the 3 1/2 months I've had it which is much better than the previous Belkin AP I had. The only problem is that it lacks Gigabit Ethernet and only has 1 LAN Ethernet port. The audio quality out of the jack also seems to be good and works reliably.

    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.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Henley on Thames

    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

    Perfect!

    • Written by from Carlisle

    I recently bought a B&W Z2 Airplay speaker, and was having problems with it dropping off the wi-fi network after it hadn't been used for a few hours, needing a power-off to get it working again.

    I suspected the problem was with my Orange Brightbox, rather than the B&W, so I bought an Airport Express to see if it would solve the problem. It arrived the day after I'd ordered it, and after a quick setup (the Airport itself is very straightforward with Airport Utility app on OS X or iOS, but it was a bit more fiddly to get into the Brightbox to switch off it's wi-fi and act only as a router) the new network was all up and running

    Airplay problem solved, and a better, stronger signal all around the house - my iPhone 5 had never worked properly on wi-fi with the Brightbox, but this also works fine now. Just goes to show, ISP-supplied 'free' wi-fi routers aren't a patch on a proper piece of kit.

    All in all, great purchase - and a great price.
