    I wanted these to be amazing

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I bought an AirPort Time Capsule and two Expresses to extend the network.

    I find myself rebooting the Expresses on a regular basis just to have them come up and barely boost my network. The Internet is unusable when connected to either of the Expresses and usually end up using my iPhone's cellular connection. I got both replaced thinking it was just extreme bad luck but as it turns out even with the latest firmware these Airports are frustratingly disappointing.

    Apple makes great products but maybe wireless is something best left for the Netgears of the world.

    Hopefully a firmware update will come soon but I am most definitely not holding my breath, until them I am purging my house of these sadly sub-par routers and extenders.

    This product is simple and amazing!

    • Written by from METAIRIE

    After a lightening storm took out my trusty Cisco router I decided to give the Airport a shot. This was so simple to setup, I did so from my iPad. The internet is fast and it works with all my devices with no problem. I highly recommend this product especially if you want less headache!

    Great Range Increase and Easy Setup

    • Written by from Stuart

    I was getting frequent drops on my home Comcast WiFi system. After reading the reviews on the AirPort Express I decided to purchase one. I noticed Apple had a refurbished unit for $72 including shipping, so I decided to purchase it. In the meantime I had hoped that the Comcast tech that was scheduled to come and check out my network would arrive after I received the Airport Express. Sure enough, about 30 minutes prior to the tech arriving my Airport Express was delivered by FedEx. I waited until the tech arrived to connect it just to see what his reaction would be. He saw I had purchased the Apple product and said it would really be an improvement to my internet and it would be more stable. Sure enough, the ease of installing it and the performance and range really did improve. You must first have a modem as this is only a router, but I decided to still keep my Comcast modem/router unit until I get another single modem which I presume will be a Motorola Surfboard which he recommended. My main goal at the beginning was to get back up and running again. I recommend this product to any one wishing to improve their internet service.

    Not exactly thrilled.

    • Written by from AUSTIN

    I am a devoted Apple man with three I-Macs over 12 years, plus an I-Phone.
    So the choice of Airport Express was a no brainer for me.
    It cratered one week after the one-year warranty expired! Planned obsolesce? Apple so much as said "too bad".
    Additionally, the Internet speed was noticeably slower on the Wi-Fi than on a direct connect to the Time Warner modem.
    To me, A.E. is form over function.

    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.

    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!

    give me the old Airport Express back any day

    • Written by from Maidenhead

    flimsy... hard to set up, loses connectivity while it sits 5 meters away from my imac and has no impending walls or anything and then it's a nightmare to set up again (tonight I am on the 10th time... and it still does not work: NOW APPLE HAS FINALLY ACHIEVED THE SAME SUCCESS AS MICROSOFT: IT IS AS MESSED UP!

    I've been a prisoner to my ancient verizon router that can not even run 802.11n. Once i got this i connected it to my verizon router through an ethernet and created my own network. I thought I was going to have issues because my printer is on my old network, but someway I can still print! The speed is amazing!!! I highly recommend this product

    fast and consistent speeds

    • Written by from Riverside

    I purchased the airport extreme to increase the wifi range and consistency of my home network. i live in a 1000 sq ft apartment and my $40 netgear router wasn't doing the job. purchased the airport extreme thinking i would back up my macbook over wifi, but found the speeds to be inconsistent and comparable to what i was getting with the $40 netgear router. returned the extreme and picked up the express. i am so happy i did. i get my advertised cable speeds at 30 Mbps consistently throughout the day. well worth the money and recommend to anyone who is considering upgrading router.

    I'm impressed

    • Written by from Vashon

    I have two older Airport Express (3 or so yrs old). This new version vastly increased my coverage and everything is much faster!!! I do wish they had the option like the old units to plug directly to the wall without a cord for portability but that is my ONLY complaint. Well worth $99

    Very Bad

    • Written by from South Jordan

    Says it can connect with 50 devices without slowing down. My family barely has 10 connected to it and the connections are terrible and speeds are 10x slower than my previous router.

    Staff at Apple Store explained in simple language what to do, so I bought one and brought it home and had it running in less than 10 minutes as an extension of my Time Capsule. So simple. Well done Apple.

    Flawless!

    • Written by from Lytle Creek

    I bought this together with an Airport Extreme, mostly as a WiFi extender to bring internet to a somewhat remote location on my property. After a simple setup of the Airport Extreme, this little device simply began to work, before I could even download it's utility. Doesn't get better than that. A vast improvement over my previously used and utterly unreliable netgear router system. I used the utility/app only to double check and set up a guest network. I am very pleased with this product.

    Simple. Fast. Sleek.

    • Written by from Munster

    Simple -
    Takes only a minute to setup. Quite intuitive and streamlined. One click to play your phone wirelessly to speakers attached to the Airport.

    Fast -
    Carries any speed I can dish out. Streams video on multiple devices at the same time.

    Sleek -
    Minimalist design. Cords all in the back. Small LED indicator.

    Love this!

    • Written by from linn

    when i first bought this i wasn't sure how to use it because i thought it extended the wireless network i was on, while i was at a hospital at the time their wifi wasn't the best so i thought this would simply make it better but i was wrong. i held onto it until i moved into a home and hooked up the new network and come to find out it saved me 50 bucks by essentially working as wireless router. and my signal is strong and it works better then i ever imagined thank you apple keep up the good products. home run with this...

    Works awesome to extend extreme

    • Written by from Long Valley

    I just purchased one today and set it up to extend my 5ghz network from my extreme. It took 2 minutes to setup and that included the time to find the perfect spot. Before I put this in ,the 5 ghz only went to about 25% of my house and with the express w/extender setup, the 5ghz now covers my entire house which is great for all of our apple products. Highly recommend and super thrilled.
