    Great product oozes quality, well packed and oh so simple to set up and run

    • Written by from Biddulph

    My original ATC was full. I decided to invest and purchased through the store. Delivery took 2 days which was very good. Well presented looks the parts and took 5 mins to set up. First new back up took 4 hours by cable now its running wireless with my Mac and Mac Book Pro. Would recommend this product.

    AirPort Time Capsule is brilliant

    • Written by from Macclesfield

    Bought a 2TB capsule to fulfill 2 objectives:- as a router to replace my BT Home Hub and to act as an external hard drive for backing up. Fully meets the objectives and whilst you could say it should do at the price, the set up was easy and speed / performance is brilliant. Well done Apple - another brilliant product that exactly meets my needs.

    superb product

    • Written by from Harrogate

    I bought one of these about a month ago on powering it up it downloaded the latest firmware, I tailored it to replace my ISP router's wifi as it is useless. At first it did not give a great coverage, until `i turned off the wifi on the ISP's router which then the wifi service improved 100%. I also made the wifi SSID very simple with a more powerful password since then the WIFI and TC has been powered up all the time with backups from both my macs to it no problem. `i have since removed the back up of my desktop to a separate USB connected hard drive, because for a desktop this is a better option. A second hard drive is used to keep all my movies as a hard drive, I am able to stream 3d from my Air to TV using this as a source,with no buffering problems, first class product, People forget that WIFI is not a guaranteed speed all the time, but I am delighted.

    It does what it says

    I would recommend to anyone. Easy to set up and just works well for what it is made for! I have had a Time Capsule for some time now and it's worth it to us Apple users

    More Apple magic!

    • Written by from Streatley-on-Thames

    Arrived next day and took all of 20 minutes to install as the new network hub with the Airport Extreme and Express units daisy-chained.
    Did a full Time Machine backup in 8 hours - silently! (my previous ext hard-drive was very noisy). A great pice of kit.

    Typical Apple Brilliance!

    • Written by from Worcester Park

    I balked at the price and went off to find a cheaper alternative as my old back up drive had failed. The new one would work but not as stated without a complete reformat. I also had to use my Mac as the server. Having purchased the Time Capsule I Plugged the drive in and followed the simple on screen instructions. My main data is still being backed up but I can access from both the iPads and all the iPhones. That took less than ten minutes to set up without using the manual. This is excellent tech. that works out of the box.

    Excellent range & speed

    • Written by from Woking

    I thought about upgrading my VirginMedia advanced wifi hub (100MB+ line) to this, when I finally did, I wish I had done it earlier! The range & speed on this device for my MacBook Retina, MacBook Air, iPads etc is amazing.

    Airport Time capsule 2Tb

    • Written by from Ramsgate

    Another excellent Apple product, I needed a seamless back up solution and fix to months of wireless woes. 10 minutes after unpacking it I was up and running and performing my initial back up from my new iMac.
    It also solved my wi fi problems, neighbouring wi fi routers were making air space very limited and I frequently had annoying drop out with problems reconnecting, now I have a 5 Ghz multi channel connection which is very quick and very reliable.
    The Time Capsule looks uber cool and runs silently, just as well as it is in the bedroom just a few feet away from my head on the bed side units!
    An excellent and very worthwhile purchase!

    Out of the box & working in 5mins

    • Written by from Bracknell

    We have a Virgin Media Superhub. We set this to Modem mode and connected the first AirPort Time Capsule this was quick & simple with the the instructions on-screen via the AirPort utility of the iMac. Once the set-up was complete my daughter set-up her AirPort Time Capsule via her Macbook Pro bridging from the first Airport Time Capsule giving it another name & pass key / word. Again this was simple and the whole process took around 15-20min.

    No other company makes this process so simple it just works.

    ANOTHER BRILLIANT BIT OF KIT !

    • Written by from SOUTHAMPTON

    My TC has been running faultlessly for about two months now; it is very cool and quiet. As with previous Airport devices it was quick and simple to set up and works well with a host of wired and wireless devices all over the house. I am very pleased indeed with this product which I use in conjunction with a Vigor 120 Ethernet modem.

    Is the coldest running time capsule yet

    • Written by from Ballsbridge

    Yes pleased with this model, easy to setup and runs quiet and cool compared to old models. Interested to find out if this generation uses less energy. Highly recommended.

    A real improvement

    • Written by from Pinner

    I had the older flat version of time capsule and this is a definite improvement. Its a breeze to set up and produces a very fast WiFi connection. The automatic back up facility works really well - I found it was a bit clunky in the older model and didn't always work - but then Apple do an excellent job of continuous improvement and the new time capsule is no exception. (and I don't work for them :-) ).

    Just as expected

    • Written by from Darwen

    I've used my previous time capsule all day every day for the past 5 years; never a blip! Sadly it was a 500 Mb version and it filled. Having just replaced it with the 2 Tb capsule I can report that everything works perfectly, straight from the box. Better, faster communication and four times the storage. It runs cooler, is silent and set up couldn't have been easier.

    Time Capsule 2 TB

    • Written by from Kirkkonummi

    I've had a need for backing up mu iMac for a long time and today I bought the new Time Capsule 2 TB. I went home being confident that this will be an easy setup like with all other Apple products and guess what.... it was really easy. I don't only have a Wi-Fi backup with great capacity, but also an extended network in my home for Apple TV, my iPad, iPhone and my iMac. I have also created a guest network. How cool is that? I give this product 5 stars because it is so consumer friendly and 100% working.

    For a simpler life

    • Written by from New Malden

    I've finally been persuaded to go wireless for backup of my content. This piece of kit worked straight out of the box. It took 20 hours to back up my iMac straight via ethernet, and then I relocated it to use its connectivity to hook up other remotely located gear (TV, XBox and Apple TV) to the AirPort which is connected via ethernet to my BT Hub 4 using a TP Link powerline adapter. It's really handy to have a second wifi network and means my iPad works consistently in my bedroom, for example. Internal walls really are pesky for wifi due to inconsistent connection, whereas suspended wooden floors aren't. So I am pleased with it. I guess one day server farm capacity will mean you'll be able to back up your back up as well via the cloud at a reasonable data storage rate. In the meantime the chance of both Mac and Capsule hard drive failing at the same time should be statistically very unlikely. So all in all, for once the rule that every piece of technology designed to make life simpler actually introduces new complexity is not true, so the time capsule gets five stars for doing the job it says it'll do.

    excellent product

    • Written by from newcastle upon tyne

    being a pc person for the last 15 years decided to go for the whole apple family as we already had 2 iPhones iPad and i pad mini.So when i bought my macbook pro also went for the apple time capsule.
    Amazing piece of engineering,simplicity in itself
    I migrated all my data from my pc using apple migration then the time capsule just backed everything up.

    yes apple products are expensive but they don't have any headache compared to other products and they just work.

    as we accumulate more and more data the things we value most like family pictures,music and files are priceless so best to back them up and back them up again so we can appreciate them in the future.
