    Everything you can ask for!

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I purchased this rougher due to the reliability issues I was having with my old one. I have had it for about a week now and am simply amazed at how much better this one is. The range coverage I am getting is almost twice as good as the old one. I also am averaging a speed thru the router 4-5mpbs faster than the old. This router is definitely worth the cost!

    Excellent

    • Written by from New Westminster

    I have used many different WiFi routers over the years, including custom open-source versions, but this device beats them all in terms of ease-of-use and functionality. I have installed two AirPort Time Capsules so far and they have been flawless, both as WiFi access points and TimeMachine disks, for several months of 24x7 operation. The beam steering antennas provide outstanding range with no drop-outs. They provide solid performance for several Macs, Windows laptops, Android tablets and smartphones. Excellent value.

    Perfect in Every Way!! Can't Say Enough!!!!

    • Written by from EVERETT

    I could honestly go on and on about this product. My internet provider had given me a wireless gateway which was supposed to be a wireless N router with all the latest features, and it was horrible - slow speeds, poor wireless signal, and constant problems with things like Air Play. So, I went back to using a four year old Time Capsule which drastically improved speeds and instantly solved the Air Play problems. Then, I decided to purchase a new Time Capsule. The positive experiences began with the physical look and design of the unit and continued from there. This Time Capsule literally doubled my internet speed, now actually giving me the speed I'm paying for - yes even wirelessly. Wi-Fi range has been improved to be even more impressive - even without any 802.11 AC devices on my network. Back-ups with Time Machine are fabulous also. I did an initial back-up of almost 400 GB in around six hours - wirelessly! Yesterday we were streaming a TV show on Apple TV while my daughter streamed a show on her iPad. At the same time, we were performing an initial wireless back-up and streaming music via Air Play in another room, and everything worked perfectly. I would have been confident to make a FaceTime call or anything else on top of that too. Now obviously as you can tell, we have a very fast internet connection - over 100 MBPS, but still we never realized those speeds over Wi-Fi until getting this new Time Capsule. This and the Airport Extreme are the only routers I ever recommend to people. I exchanged my internet provider's gateway for a non-Wi-Fi device and I couldn't be happier! Love it!:)

    I honestly couldn't believe how fast my internet became after purchasing the Airport Time Capsule and then it looks so sleek and beautiful in design sitting in my living room waiting for me to store data. I absolutely love it.

    Great performance

    • Written by from Jersey City

    I have purchased about a month ago to sync all of my apple products at Home. Wifi speed went up almost 10 times faster than regular router from cable company. Moreover, I have been using time capsule not only back up drive, but also home files sharing for all of music, movies, and doc. Time capsule brought much more options than what I expected. Strongly recommend.

    Fantastic

    • Written by from Timberlea

    Replaced older 3 TB time capsule, fantastic device. It was painless to setup and configure as most things are from Apple. Since it has just been setup last night and my imac did a full backup it seems to me to be faster and stable - but only one day old.

    Not Very Impressed... Slow to Backup on Snow Leopard

    • Written by from Beavercreek

    I spent the extra $100 to get the latest and now wish I went with the older (and cheaper) tried and true. Setup was ok, although confusing at times particulary when a screen shared auto configuration with blanks for manual settings and no clear header saying those blanks were for manual configuration. The instructions on that screen also read more like they were written for a computer programmer rather than an end user. That all being said, the real disappointment is the slow, slow, slow backup speed So far it's taken 2 hours to backup 75GB. And it seems to take 2-5 minutes to startup. What's with that? The Apple rep told me this was the latest and greatest and it is the future, but honestly it's at least five times slower than what it's replacing. Maybe it will get better after the first backup, I don't know, but right out of the box it's a disappointment for backup. The Wi-Fi seems to work good, but that's not really the main reason why I bought it. Remember, Time Machine backs up every hour and at that slow speed it's going to be running into itself If I add more than 40GB of data.

    Just got my new Time Capsule

    • Written by from Homestead

    I outgrew my old Time Capsule so time for a new one. I bought the 2GB version and overall the set up was in true Apple style, dummy proof. Things were up and running in a matter of minutes. What I don't like is that it does not provide any configuration settings that will allow you to monitor internet traffic. Great router, very strong signals throughout the house. If it had some advance settings I'd be more generous with my ratings.

    excellent but not perfect

    • Written by from Makkah

    the device is excellent, i have tested with my new macbook air with ac wifi. the back up speed is amazingly fast, even faster than USB external drives.
    the issue is that you can not access the file from the net. so i need to buy another WD book live duo only for the net access to the photo and movie files that i have.
    apple should really consider the net access to the files

    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!

    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.

    Impressed!!!

    • Written by from Chicago

    I had a Linksys router and separate Seagate backup drive. As a router the Time Capsule blows the Linksys away! My Linksys router picked up interference and lost its signal whenever I used my microwave, and I had to reconnect to my network whenever I brought my Mac Air out of sleep mode. The Time Capsule never drops, has no issues with the microwave, and all my devices automatically pick it up. Time Machine make back ups a piece of cake and there’s never a need to connect to an external drive. I just turn on Time Machine. Set up was a breeze – only required a couple of mouse clicks.

    I was an Apple doubter for a longtime. But I am sold! They are way more than a mobile phone company!

    Beautifully designed, looks smart, excellent performance, automatic backup which is what I like most and server level hardware make me feel more confident and reliable. Signal strength is just amazing and speed ..i love my iPhone, Macbook Pro & iPad more, it has boosts their performance as well. All apple family.
    Apple products are space age technology and you are missing if you dont own this or any of their products.

    Perfect for Automated Backups

    • Written by from Beverly Hills

    Few people back up their precious data, but with an Airport Time Capsule my Mac backs itself up wirelessly and automatically every hour. Once I set up the Time Machine software it's just set and forget. Worth every dollar. Would be more valuable with USB 3 (for external drives) and Solid State Drive. Would give it 5 starts with USB 3 and SSD.

    Best router in general but with the extra storage, Backup savior.

    • Written by from Shelter Island

    Title says it all. When I first purchased it it came with a dead Ethernet port on the back. Didn't really need it but I wanted to get it fixed. Months went by and scheduled an appointment at an Apple store near by and they gave me a whole new one. Was out in 5 minuets. Couldn't of had better service.

    Amazing range and speed increase over old Airport X

    • Written by from Clackamas

    I purchased the 3TB version ahead of purchasing my new Mac Pro this month. I wasn't expecting such a range and speed boost as I'm still only using the "n" technology in my devices. The third story of my home was always a slow connection and was an issue with streaming TV content through my Apple TV. Now I get full strength and over 20 Meg's per second instead of 3-4. Great Job Jony and team ID!

    Best router I've owned yet

    • Written by from Franklinton

    Have had Linksys, Netgear and a couple of other non name brand routers through the years. But this Airport Time Capsule-2TB delivers fast, strong and reliable wireless signal anywhere in my home. To compare, I can be 100+ feet away with a small office, trees and several walls inbetween and still get 40 Mbps. Same spot with the linksys and netgear router I barely get 2-5 Mbps. Also the automatic backup to the Airport Time Capsule ensures flawless and complete back ups.

    Apple, I sincerely thank you for consistently making such easy to use, high quality products.

    Even my Garage has strong signal now!

    • Written by from Aliso Viejo

    I have owned an Apple Time Capsule since 2008. I appreciate the tight integration with Mac's Time Machine backups. This is my 3rd Time Capsule from Apple. It works flawlessly. But what is really amazing with the latest iteration is the strength of the wi-fi signal throughout my 1800 square foot, three level town home. It sits on the top floor. It covers every square inch of my town home with strong signals. But the "coup de gras" was my realization that my iPhone had full wi-fi strength in my garage (even outside of it)! I never had connections in the garage. Overall, this is another great time machine.
