    Extreme express dream

    • Written by from oregon

    Had poor internet reception in certain rooms and got the AirPort Express. Works beautifully even with the Panda Wireless usb wifi adapter. You place the express in the room you need it. We did not use the wired connection. We used the express wirelessly to connect to the AirPort Extreme. It will attach wirelessly with even a weak wifi signal, and the express boosts that signal dramatically. It took very little time to set up. Easy to access, easy to install, easy to use. It is the size of the Apple TV second gen. We now get great wifi in all rooms, with no slowing down. Every room accesses the wifi as if the AirPort Extreme is in that room. Great for iPhones, iPads and all wifi devices.

    Not working very well

    • Written by from Belmont

    I've had this for about a year and it's never really worked right. Seems to drop constantly, unable to extend my network, just isn't stable. Very disappointing.

    Doesn't work wirelessly with a third party router

    • Written by from Birmingham

    I have a Netgear router in my basement and it gives a weak signal to the second and third floor. I purchased the Airport Express thinking that i could use it wirelessly on the second floor to boost the signal. I learned after I bought it that the only way to use this product wirelessly to boost the signal is if your primary wifi router is another apple product such as the Airport Extreme or Time Capsule. You can extend the network with a third party router if the two are connected via ethernet, which practically does you no good considering they are right next to each other. If you want to boost range of wifi wirelessly you cant have a third party router. it's still a good product to use for airplay and airprint.

    Extened my network range easily with a few taps from my iPhone. Don't know why I didn't do this sooner.

    Excelent!

    • Written by from Lowell

    I bought this some months ago and I have to say that its the best router that I've had. I would never switch to another router. My Wi-Fi speed is absolutely powerful. I would totally recommend this product, trust me its worth the $200.

    Cuts in and out constantly

    • Written by from Killingworth

    I bought an airport express specifically for playing music in my downstairs. Unlike AppleTV it constantly cuts in and out as I move about the room. Extremely frustrating... I've switched units and it makes no difference.

    Airplay is horrible/Router ok

    • Written by from Durham

    I bought 2 of these things for a 1500 sqft space and these suckers aren't particle. Network drops out from one end of the space to the other so I have to always walk toward the main one to get stable coverage. Also the Airplay is the only reason I got 2 of them and that feature is horrible, it never works. Maybe works for 1 min then starts dropping out. Apple's quality is really is starting to become like it was back in the 90s. Cool outside box with poor components inside and at the $99 price rage you'd hope for a better product.

    Great for Extending

    • Written by from San Angelo

    I live in a large house and had poor wifi reception on one end. I bought the Apple Express router and set it up in my kitchen which is halfway between the router and the other end of my house. Setup was very easy with my iPad. It went ahead and gave me the option to extend my wireless network from a Time Machine router I have in my living room. Now I can receive excellent service in the troubled area. Great fix for the price!

    I went from downloading/uploading at 11.44/14.27 Mb to 55.33/3036 Mb with this! Huge upgrade in performance! Device took me 2 minutes and 17 seconds to set up and it's so small and convenient i fits perfect on the desk. Easy to take with you for business trips as well.

    This is very good

    • Written by from West Drayton

    I find this very good, my only negative is that the USB port is only for a printer and can not support an external drive. Also, i actually prefer the previous design where the whole thing plugged in to the electric socket instead of this design where there is a cable. Other than that, I find it to be very good and reliable, and incredibly easy to set up.

    Shockingly Bad

    • Written by from Fairfield

    Do not buy this. I bought it to create wireless printing capability for my new iMac and to boost the wireless signal. The wireless printing works, but the wireless signal is appalling. It only works intermittently and the signal from the cable company supplied router is actually stronger.

    In short, not worth it.

    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.

    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.

    Great Alternative to Motorola Router

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I moved into a student housing apartment and had a AT&T motorola DSL router which wouldn't broadcast a wifi signal to my Apple products. Only my Xbox 360 and HP laptop would get the wifi signal. So I finally gave up trying to fix the problem and bought an Airport Express! It worked on all my Apple products and window products without a glitch. Now I can get wifi on my iPad,iPhone,iMac,Apple TV along with the Xbox and laptop.
    I highly recommend this to all my friends and associates!
    Thanks Apple for coming through for me with the easy setup too!

    Worst Apple's product ever - streaming just DOESN'T work

    • Written by from Elk Grove Village

    I can't believe this product has 4 stars. Try to stream music with AirPlay... Every model of this device had issues with frequent music drop out when streaming... and unfortunately I'm the owner of this model...
    More than four years of complains of other users on Apple's forum...

    If you're going to buy it in order to stream music - think twice :-)...
