Dead After 14 Months, Was Great

Amazon Customer "not religious", Amazon
11 September 2012
  • Summary: This is an easy to setup product, but the compact design seemed to lead to overheating and premature hardware failure. Some pros and cons (below). You can configure this unit into Bridge Mode so that your WiFi devices will be on the same LAN segment as your Ethernet wired devices.

Great features, poor quality, and how I fixed it

Bullminator "4K", Amazon
24 November 2009
  • Summary: I bought this about a year ago as we have multiple macbooks and wanted the automatic back up feature. Also, the dual band is awesome - we use the 5GHz for all the macbooks, and use the normal radio for abut 10 other devices in the house, including Roku, PS3, Slingbox, a netbook, wireless printers,...

time capsule is a scam - apple should not release products being tested

Marcelo A. Garcia "molho", Amazon
20 November 2009
  • Summary: ok i bought this thinking it was a solution for backup and other purposes here are the reasons why i rated this so poorly 1 - you can't transfer multiple large files. time capsule simply freezes and once it does... oh boy, you have to reset it like three times 2 - it heats more than my oven.

Great router, good backup device, ok network disk

Jonathan Birge, Amazon
4 September 2009
  • Summary: This product is basically three products: an airport extreme wireless router, a networked drive, and finally, with Leopard, a networked backup system. Overall, it's a very good product, but there are some serious limitation one should be aware of. As a router, it is fantastic.

OK UNTIL IT DIES

C. M., Amazon
5 August 2009
  • Summary: It was a reasonable product while it was working. Although there are few benefits to this over an airport base station with an external drive attached, which is cheaper and is upgradable. Mine did what it was supposed to do.

Plug and Play? For me, yes.

Mark E. Felker, Amazon
5 August 2009
  • Summary: I had alot of trepidations about installing this little bugger but all my concerns were unfounded. It truely is plug and play. My only concern now is using it to wirelessly connect to my Apple macbook, circa 2007 and then there is my Apple TV that is sitting patiently in it's box waiting for the old...

Easy set-up; impressive wireless range; adding additional USB storage a snap

Mr. Deeds, Amazon
5 August 2009
  • Summary: I have AT&T DSL which came with an all-in-one 2Wire wireless router. The range was good, but there were parts of the house where we didn't get signal. In addition, I needed an automatic way to backup my MacBook Pro, my wife's MacBook and our HP desktop. Problem = solved with Time Capsule.

Works great with Mac and PCs

D. Nguyen, Amazon
5 August 2009
  • Summary: It works like advertised and looks very nice. Very easy to configure but I wished that there was more control over "Access Control". Would like to be able to limit "Wired" MAC Access Control and not just "wireless".
