    I literally opened the new Airport Extreme box and plugged in 2 cords and wall-laa its done. I never used to get wifi in my 2 story house... Now I get full coverage wifi all the way to my mail-box and the routher is in the basement! Excellent product!

    It even has airstream for your music? Wireless from your phone to speakers in your house?
    Its sooo legit..... HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. (and yes im screaming it at you) for $108 at best-buy you absolutely can NOT go wrong.

    Reason for buying.... Just bought a new Macbook Pro "15.4" non-retina display and needed wifi considering my whole house is hard wired. All I did was connect a ethernet cord from the moden to the wifi now I have hardwire for the whole house and wifi for friends or laptops that are in the house and it doesnt even slow the connection! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! BUY IT

    Just bought the airport express to replace an old router. Very easy to set up, the only drawback I found was trying to create a guest network. Instructions are very general, was not able to set one up. Not a big deal but still a bit disappointed. All in all a great product and would definitely recommend it

    Very easy set up.
    Significant wireless improvement over my old device.
    Works superbly with all my devices.
    On top of that, can enjoy the benefits of AirPlay.

    Phenomenal Upgrade!

    • Written by from Rockford

    Love the AIRPORT EXPRESS!! It is an excellent upgrade with much more flexibility than the old AIRPORT EXPRESS, plus it provides a turbo boost to my home wireless network when I paired it with a Fifth Gen. AIRPORT EXTREME BASE STATION. I'm getting 5mbps and greater download and 2+mbps upload from a network that usually delivered only half that speed, at best! My network IPS is also wireless to my home from a nearby tower so download/upload speed was not consistent and often sluggish due to bandwidth overload at the tower. However, for some reason that I can't quite fathom, my all-APPLE wireless network seems to have solved that problem once and for all! So I am a happy Apple fanboy, once again! Oh, and one more thing. It has extended the range of the old network by at least 75%, if not greater. So do yourself a favor, and install an all-APPLE wireless network in your home and join the APPLE Happy Club! (No, I do NOT work for APPLE nor do I own stock, unfortunately, lol).

    Less options than previously

    • Written by from Toulouse

    I expected it to be the best to play music with airplay, but the output level is too loud for my external loudspeaker with built-in amplification.

    In addition to the bad side, the level of Wifi can not be tuned anymore in Airport v6.x (9even if it was announced possible in the online description)! and whereas it was possible in previous Airport v5.x.

    So easy to configure... because there is less to configure !

    Very easy to set up. Coverage better than First Generation Airport Express

    • Written by from Munising

    I was amazed how easy this device was to set up. I plugged it in, and it was recognized by my ipad. A few screens, input the password, and it has been working ever since.

    I am not a fan of the power cord- but I used the plug from the original airport express and it plugs into the wall just like the original version. Not the smooth form factor you would expect from Apple- but it works.

    I wish Apple would ship a legacy plug and the cord- that way I could still use the original airport (or give to someone else) instead of now hunting for a plug for it.

    Overall- I am pleased with the increased speed and range of my network (Gen 4 Airport Extreme).

    It took me literally just moments to set this up with just my iPad. Just download the correlating Airport utility app and you can be set up in less than five minutes.

    This device works perfectly as a router and was so easy to set up...All you had to do essentially was plug it in! I even love how the wireless printing works! Once it's connected, you can print from it! Great product.

    Awesome product

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I was using a Netgear router and my housemate's 2.4GHz phone was cutting me off the internet constantly. I picked up this little gem of a router and the problem has been solved. I'm using it with a Macbook Pro. My roommate uses an old pc laptop so she still gets booted off the internet when she uses the phone since her laptop doesn't have 5GHz receptivity.

    The signal from this router is stronger than the Netgear one, with a much smaller and more elegant footprint no less. We both get strong signal throughout our 2 bedroom apartment. Great product Apple!

    I upgraded a netgear n150 wireless router when airplay mirroring was lagging on it.
    Setup was different from the netgear but the setup software explained everything along the way and before I knew it I had everything going wired and wireless. My ipad on the 5ghz network helped eliminate any lag with airplay mirroring and my apple tv is hardwired to the express, now when I stream my movies from icloud in HD the buffer time does not take as long compared to my old netgear. Best investment I have made to improve my network.

    Pity that this device has faster wireless speed capacity than the LAN/WAN ports with only 10/100 speed. I wanted to use this one in my home due to smaller size than the Extreme but with this speed it's quite a disappointment that the wired side was not brought up to 1GB speed. And yes, my ISP supplies 1GB speed.

    • Written by from Clarence Center

    I plugged it in in my family room and before I could walk to my Mac, my son called out that Airport Utility had spontaneously opened on his Mac. In moments, I had clicked to add the Express to our home network, checked iTunes and saw it was already listed as a selection to play AirTunes. I can't imagine anything easier.

    I bought this product to hopefully help handle over 10 of the wireless devices in my home. it does great for such a little router. It's fast, and its really really easy to set up, I actually set it up by using my iPhone. No hassle, easy and quick, I recommend this product.

    • Written by from Vancouver

    This thing was a dream to set up. I've been using a Linksys router for years and you have to log onto the Linksys web site based on a hyperlink (192.168.1.1) with an ethernet cable from you computer, and you have to spend quite a bit of time figuring out the many screens with security and network name with passwords and and and and..... I set this thing up in about 2 minutes doing it all on my iPad. Wirelessly. Don't waste your time on another way to hook up to the internet wirelessly, and for the record it does much more than just that.
