    Fantastic Upgrade!

    • Written by from Orlando

    Had an old timecapsule and it worked pretty well for 5 years or so... This new one has nearly double the speed and range. Highly recommend! Definitely worth the money... pending it lasts for a long time of course.

    Best Time Capsule and Air Port Base

    • Written by from Austin

    The main purpose for this purchase was the better distance antenna. It impressed me, I'm so happy Apple makes great products that just work. The migration from my old Time Capsule was seamless and fast and intuitive. Definitely recommend, I can be out at pool in the back yard with great connection and speed.

    Best router I ever had

    • Written by from Cary

    It took 10 minutes to make it work (including unpacking, plugging and typing in passwords for new network from my iPad). Network speed is amazing: both on WiFi and gigabit LAN ports. Internal disks are mapped as network shares so you can easily access from any mac/*nix/windows machines.
    The only minor issue I've met: plastic legs at the bottom are sliding on my table so I have to place the device in secured position to avoid accidental drop.

    Great Upgrade!

    Originally I had the older model of time capsule. This upgrade was certainly satisfying! Set-up is easy, automatically backs up my computer and the internet is much faster!

    Time Capsule is Great!

    Amazing!

    • Written by from Worcester

    I had a top of the line Linksys router before I upgraded. It would get chocked up, and it would reduce my bandwidth to a crawl if I had more than a few devices on the network. The Airport Time Capsule gives me amazing speed, even with over 20 devices connected!

    NEW TIME CAPSULE IS A BEAST!

    • Written by from Houston

    I had a new Airport Extreme and Airport Express (both bought within the last year) that were bridged together in my apartment. The Airport Extreme had to be plugged directly into my Xbox for a strong connection, and the Airport Express range was mediocre at best (I have concrete walls in my apartment which have always been a problem).

    This new Airport Time Capsule has allowed me to get rid of both Airports, AND the signal is strong without a direct connect to my Xbox. The strength of the signal is as powerful as they say! Best router I have ever seen, by a long shot.

    Simply fantastic!

    • Written by from Flower Mound

    I have owned MANY WiFi routers over the years and this Airport Time Capsule is by far the best. I’ve seen complaints that it is too expensive, however if you were to purchase another high end WiFi router and a 2TB external drive it would cost you well over $300. Super easy to configure yet has the key configuration options you need such as port forwarding and WPS setup for printers. It was easy to extend my network to a second Airport Extreme with the Airport Utility, just a few clicks and I have excellent coverage in all parts of a large one story home.

    Great Router, huge update.

    • Written by from Cloverport

    It works very well, and with the new taller design and ability to send extra "waves" to where your device is, it's great. Also, if you have an older one and are upgrading, I suggest using your old one to extend the network.

    Excellent range, speed and ease of backup make this a WINNER!

    • Written by from Homer Glen

    I had only purchased the previous model a few months ago, I decided over the weekend that I would purchase the new MacBook Air, so I wanted to get the newer AirPort with the AC wireless speed to match. We have a 9000 sft home so I use a few airport express units to spread coverage. I unplugged the previous AirPort Extreme and plugged in my new AirPort Time capsule 2T, at first the airport express units were not found so I completed a hard reset (small button on back of unit) and restarted the set-up. The units were found and added easily and the system is now running. Even without using the new MacBook Air with AC the router seems faster (getting WIFI speeds of 17mbps from an 18mbps measured on hard-wire)

    Excellent system, Apple I need you to come out with a smart home system now to tie all of this together!

    Replaces 1TB TC.

    • Written by from MILLINGTON

    Connect, plug it in and it just works. I have 4 AP expresses on my network for music and 3 of 4 were recognized right away. Fourth I unplugged and plugged back and it showed up in AP Utilty.

    Although not faster because I don't have wifi AC equipped devices, the connection was much better.
    Time Machine BU of my iMac took only 2+20. The old TC took over nite.

    Backing up MBAir now... Looks fast also.

    Here's hoping that the new iPads, iPhones will have this faster wifi standard

    I had one of the earlier time capsules, I bought this to increase speed, needed a larger drive and increase wifi range. Does all the above. A+ Apple.... good job!

    Great Wireless Router

    • Written by from Hooksett

    I just picked this up today as a replacement for my airport extreme gen. 5. Setup was incredibly easy, less than 15 minutes even with the firmware update. I did not even have to reset the airport express that is also on the same network. This is a noticeable improvement in speed over the airport extreme I replaced. The signal beaming seems to be very effective. Glad I purchased this.

    Very impressed

    • Written by from Temecula

    Bought the new TC 2GB tonight to support 802.11AC on my new MBA when it will arrive early next week. I already have 3 routers at home, 1 from Verizon FIOS and 2 Linksys E1200 as 1 router doesn't cut it in the house.
    Setup was extremely easy, I have a MacPro with no wireless connected to one of the LAN ports, it took ~ 1 min and airport utility popped up and it took ~ 2 min to go through all menus and set the router up. It automatically set up in bridge mode which is exactly what I wanted, as I want all my computers on the same subnet.
    Performance on my MacPro (wired) appears to be slightly better.

    So far very happy with my purchase, now I can't wait to get my new MBA to have a real speedy wireless network ...

    Fantastic Router

    • Written by from East Patchogue

    Excellent speeds and range. I have a very tight area in same area as my AV equipment (not optimal for range) and I get full bars all over my house in N-speeds. Once new MacBook Pros come out, I will get full advantage of ac, but still with internet speeds at 55/8, I'm sure the difference will not be fully realized. The one hiccup I did have was when I had everything hardwired with a 8 port switch, I needed to renew the DHCP lease, and now everything over ethernet is working just like before. Another excellent piece of hardware from the best!

    Excellent upgrade from previous generation

    • Written by from BROAD BROOK

    This is my fourth Time Capsule since they were first introduced and, so far, it is definitely the best. Significant improvement in both WiFi range and speed. Right now I am getting throughput of 450 on 802.11n with my MacBook Pro Retina 15 and right next to it am getting 850 on the new .ac standard with my new MacBook Air 11. Also the form factor and design are top-notch. The TC looks very impressive on my desk and I heartily endorse springing for the new model.

    Great Range, super easy to set up...

    • Written by from Greenwich

    I tried FOUR different routers to replace my 500gig time capsule to get a better signal. No luck. I was about to settle for the n spec dark knight, when this week, BANG a new TC. I'll try it, I thought and I'm glad I did. Better range, no dead spots and 2 tb backup for $299 instead of separate router and hd for $280. Thanks again Apple.

    Spectacular Bandwidth Improvement!

    • Written by from ROCKAWAY

    I am getting ~4x bandwidth improvement close by but we have a 100 year old house with wire mesh lath and plaster walls and this new antenna array appears significantly less able to penetrate these walls than the last generation Airport/Time Capsule.
