    Everything I had hoped for

    • Written by from Richfield

    I bought the new Airport Express so I could move our old one from the porch into the garage (for AirPlay). Setup from my iPad took 3 minutes. The signal is now strong enough to stream Pandora and Netflix outside and AirPlay works without a hitch. I like the new form factor better - it's much easier to change the connections and hit the reset button without accidentally unplugging it.

    Traveling with the old Express was great, and this one should be just as easy. I always bring an ethernet cable with when I travel, so bringing the power cable along too isn't an issue. Replacement power cables are also cheap, - I'll probably just buy an extra to keep in my backpack so I can just unplug the Express and head out the door.

    Powerful extender

    • Written by from Northfield

    I have a spread-out house and had trouble getting Wi-Fi signal in the room farthest from the Extreme router, despite using several Expresses as extenders. I was giving up hope, then tried this new Express as the extender farthest from the router. It has changed my life – even though the intermediate extenders are old Expresses, the signal in the back room is incredibly strong due to the new Express. I will say, set up was not working well with the iPad — I had to use my Mac. But that worked fine, and now I'm one happy camper. The best $99 I can recall spending.

    Solved my problems

    • Written by from Murfreesboro

    Had two other brand routers and had lots of wireless printing and airplay problems. Set this up in 2 minutes with my iphone and printing and airplay have not been a problem at all. Awesome! Finally a wireless router that actually works and is super easy to set up.

    Why not a modem router?!!!

    • Written by from ENCINO

    I love the device from the moment I saw it in your keynote, but why apple, why not making a modem router after so long???!!!!
    I even order it by mistake and I realized, I was so much in luv with this device I even didn't pay attention to this important factor!
    Anyway to some people like me having a separate modem & router its just not a case!
    I give 1 star to get your attention apple, but as you may know all your devices with all limitation they have are all the way 5 stars!!!

    Unbelievable as an extender of a wifi network over enet (wireless roaming)

    • Written by from Indialantic

    Flat out solid.

    The airport utility does not do a good job with a setup to bridge a wireless roaming network and I had to call support but after some simple steps it was all up and going. Now I have no dead spots and complete transparency as far as iPhones and whatnot care.

    Pricey

    • Written by from dundalk

    I'd say this is the biggest waste of money ever it costs 100 bucks and worth 10. It gives ya very weak wifi signal.

    Great Router - Horrible Config Tool

    • Written by from Madison

    Just picked up the new express .. great router .. too bad the new airport config 6.1 software is a pile of garbage. I think I know where the engineers that did Ping ended up .. bring back the v5x version and dump 6.

    Awesome, easy setup!

    • Written by from Foley

    I counted five finger pokes I had to do on my iPad to set my new express up as a wireless extender to my airport extreme! No passwords required, no long setup process... Just plug in, find it in wifi, ask it to join your network and it's ready. It's that easy!

    Excellent Wifi Extender

    • Written by from Regina

    Works perfectly for my wireless needs. I have no issues with it. It's set as bridge mode as my firewall (pfsense) does all the rest. Airplay works well with all my other apple devices. Recommended

    Not Good

    • Written by from Sheffield

    Ive been using Airport Express for years but sadly this new generation is far from stable. It disconnects from the network and has to be manually connected, and then fingers crossed it will stay online. I have to add before I bought this box the old one worked fine.

    My advise is if you can find an alternative system then use it. £79 is far too much for something that doesn't work properly

    The Best $99 I've Spent So Far in This Century

    • Written by from GREENPORT

    My office is on the second floor of my house built in 1832. My wife’s office with her PC was downstairs next to the laundry room. Because of the appliances, we could only provide access to the internet for her via a unit that used the electrical wiring of the house. She could not connect to my TC.
    Now, the good news. She finally threw out the dreadful Dell replacing it with an iMac and we bought the Airport Express hoping the increased range would make the difference. It did and it only took 7.5 minutes to hook up. What’s more she wirelessly uses “our” printer and TC in my office and we both can play music through the living room’s sound system where we located the unit.
    The best $99 I’ve spent so far in this century.

    excellent redesign

    • Written by from CHICAGO

    don't be silly you guys. this is just as portable. just because you now have a 3 foot power cable in the mix, does not mean that you have to use something else. in fact, you can even use the same detachable 2 prong plug you are used to having, and insert that into the power receptacle of the new express. add to that the addition of a hard-wired ethernet port, and you now have way more functionality than you had with the previous version. you can usb share a printer, AND hard-wire something else if you wanted to (appletv?) - don't be so black and white. the new design is better, likely uses less power, and fits with the rest of their model line.

    Not So Easy..

    • Written by from Knoxville

    Yeah, I'm 15. Technology is my life. I bought this when I bought my MacBook Pro, and they said it would be easy to setup. My Netgear router was a lot easier to set up than this. I still love the form factor of it though. It provides the comfort of wireless printing and the comfort of AirTunes, which I love!

    I don't get it

    • Written by from Petaluma

    The new design is bad. One of my favorite things about the previous versions of the Express was that it was a self-contained, super portable little router. I could slip it in my laptop case and take it with me on the road and not even feel any extra weight or notice much extra space taken up. Now this new version adds a long power cord into the mix. It's much less portable. I have returned the unit and am sticking with my old Airport Express.

    the convenience factor is gone

    • Written by from San Diego

    I have purchased and installed many of these (previous model) to extend Apple wireless networks. The new design will not allow the quick plug in of the unit to a wall power outlet. It made an attractive "wall wart". Now must deal with a long power cord (the power cord was optional on the previous model). I will now have to return this and hope to find the old model.

    Power plug to large

    • Written by from Little Rock

    I read some have problem with their power plug being to large to use cat 5 into WAN port. Google "YL-113L" for a smaller power plug that may work. The product has been great as my new travel router so far. Using an old Case Logic CD case I carry the router, cat 5 and power cables.

    Extended my network perfectly!

    • Written by from Nutley

    I received my Airport Express very quickly from Apple and as soon as I plugged it in the setup was so simple! The Airport Express asked me if I wanted to extend my Airport Extreme and all I had to do was click a button and the Airport Express successfully extended my network wirelessly. The Airport Express maintained the original speed of the network when it was extended! Worth the buy money, if you need to extend your network this is the product you need!

    Does not work at 220-240 V AC. Be careful!!!

    • Written by from LIma

    This ruins all the portability of the device while travelling since you have to carry and additional transformer. But that is not the worst part. There is NO WARNING !!!! I looked at the manual, and there is NOTHING.
    Apple be prepared for lots of returns of burned devices.
    I applied common sense since there was not the usual boxy plug (transformer) like every other Apple AC connector. Then I loooked at a very small print in very light gray in the same plug end, stating it works with 125 V only....
    I will have to return it...
