  • Conclusion: Like with the AirPort Extreme Base Station, Apple backs the new Time Capsule with one year of standard support, which is short, considering it has a non-removable, built-in hard drive and runs hot. You can and should purchase an extended AppleCare coverage plan. Also, if your Apple computer or Apple TV is covered under AppleCare, Time Capsule is also covered. The device comes with 90 days of complimentary, toll-free phone support.
  • Pros: Expensive, Limited networking and network storage features, No backup for Windows, Hard drive is not user-serviceable, No media or iTunes server, Picky support for USB printers, Only three Ethernet ports, No web interface, No remote access for Windows users, Set-up, administration and storage sharing require OS X 10.4 or later, Runs hot
