    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.

    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.

    Excellent

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Very Easy - Bought 2

    • Written by from Ilford

    Plug& Play. very easy to setup, used for extending an Airport Extreme via WiFi and it works well. Is reliable. Do not use it for audio as the positioning of the Express is geared to WiFi coverage rather than anything else. Best part of this is that as a WiFi extender the is no ugly transformer plug, it's built in which is the way all these units should be.

    Never thought I'd hate any Apple product....

    • Written by from York

    However, this one I do hate because it tarnishes the brand I love. Worked OK (not great) for about 4 months, but about 10 days ago it just starting behaving erratically. The green light glows, but nothing is coming through. If you connect directly to the cable modem the signal is fine. I bought a new ethernet cable thinking maybe there was a broken wire but it did not help. I have tried everything: new cable modem, new ethernet cables, new location, reset button, holy water, you name it, I've tried it. Devices will not connect to it and when they do they drop the signal after a few minutes. As of this morning I replaced it with a Belkin that costs 1/2 the price and so far, so good. Buyer beware: just because it has the Apple doesn't mean it performs like one.

    Limited range and reliability.

    • Written by from morristown

    I am using my Express to extend the range of a ten year old Linksys wrt54g. My intention was to use it alone. First I have to say that I love the easy setup after I had understood how it worked and remote management is a cinch. It has provided decent speed over my older routers but then just stops transmitting for a while. The range is crazy depending on obstructions too; I can have it behind a small monitor and literally loose all connection to it but elevated it reaches well over 100 ft plus. This is not always convenient. I have decided to use it as an extension and it has been more reliable for that. It also does well with airplay providing it has a clear view of the transmitting device.
    I can see this being a lobby hotspot more than a heavy router and maybe the extra $100 would have been worth it. I will however, keep it for its portability and easy setup. I wish Apple was more clear on its limitations.

    Overpriced paperweight - would have given 0 starts

    • Written by from New York

    It is hard to find a good thing to say about the Airport Express. When using it to extend a 2011 Airport Extreme, it failed miserably, both as a wired and as a wireless extender. Setup was difficult and slow and it would appear that v6 of the Airport Utility had a great deal of functionality removed from it in comparison to v5. (this missing functionality made problems quite difficult to diagnose). When I finally had it connected as a wired extender (via an ethernet cable), the network would actually drop completely every 5 minutes or so. Also, don't even think about using some non-Apple networking equipment with this. The Express would not work with the Netgear Powerline 500 network extenders (and the brand new ASUS router that I bought would, with no effort).

    Given the incredibly high price ($100), you can get FAR better devices that do significantly more at a much lower price point.

    Airport Expressly Useless

    • Written by from Halifax

    We have a number of Apple products in our home (MacBook Pros, iPhones, iPods, Time Capsule) and, sadly, an Airport Express. The Express was initially purchased to stream music though it seemed to suffer from wireless dead zones in our home. Attempts to use it as a network extender (from our Time Capsule base) have been only temporarily successful with no predictable reason for it working or not. After multiple resets, online advice and directions, more time has been spent trying to fix the device than actually using it.

    AIRPORT EXPRESS

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I needed a router for my DSL connection. I have the late Macbook pro with retina display for 2013. It works great with it. I'm not an apple product fan, but I love how apple products are in sync with one another. It connects all wireless products. My macbook pro comes with airport utility to set it up. U can also download it to your ipad, iphone, or android. Overall, this is a good product, but the price is costly.

    Lifesaver for electronic medical records

    • Written by from New Orleans

    I have a Medical practice, and it is located in a narrow older building. I have a regular apple router by my reception desk, and it has never given me any problems. However, when I had to purchase two new computers, the software included windows 8. My old computers have windows 7. Unfortunately, I can't use Mac because my medical software isn't Mac compatible. Well, the new computers were located far from the router, and the signal was weak, and it would take me forever to input an exam. So, I did some research and found that I could extend the signal with the airport express. Now, it is tremendously fast! My husband suggested using the app on my phone install the router, but it did not work for me. Then, I went to my wifi settings on the iphone, and voila, it was a piece of cake. It took five minutes to extend the signal. I am very pleased with the result and the fast shipping. Thanks apple!!
