UltraMacTrekker

Gerard E. Tanguay, Amazon
31 December 2009
  • Summary: Purchased a 1T APPLE TIME CAPSULE as backup/wireless base station for my iMac. Was not disappointed in the least...T/M unit performs magnificently in backing up the HD, and as a 10/100/1000 Mbps capable airport extreme wifi network base linking my Leapord-driven computer to the world. Recommend it!

Avoid - This product is one big headache and does not work as advertised

Tell It Like It Is, Amazon
31 December 2009
  • Summary: I am a computer savvy person. This device does not work right out of the box. After 3 hours last night on my own and 2 hours today with Apple care, it was determined by Apple that I needed to return the product because they could not get it to work. I tried using it with a brand new macbook and a year old macbook. Both were unsuccessful. This product cannot continuously connect to the internet. Many many many others have had this problem.

Must Have for Backups

A. Meyer, Amazon
31 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought this Time Capsule as I liked the idea of having a wireless hard drive for backup and that it as well supports the wireless network standard 802.11n. This "TC" works great, is always fast, setup was easy, and I've never had any problems with it. I also use it's 1 TB hard drive for backups and to store my growing iTunes video library, which it streams video just fine to my MacBook and Apple TV. All Mac users should buy one let alone to use for backups.

Caveat Emptor: Product fails, little help from Apple.

Christopher Hart, Amazon
31 December 2009
  • Summary: Like other reviewers, my 1TB Time Capsule died after 19 months of normal use with a bad power supply. While the Time Capsule _is_ covered if you have AppleCare on a Mac desktop or laptop, it only guarantees you a replacement product - not recovery of your data, even if the drive in the Time Capsule is fine. For a product whose dominant purpose is to provide a backup of your data, the quality of this product and the service provided by Apple is simply unacceptable.

Apple does it again

Nikolas Becker, Amazon
31 December 2009
  • Summary: I had the first-gen Time Capsule and it worked fairly flawlessly. The two main features I was wanting with this TC were the dual band wireless broadcasting and the guest account configuration. As an iPhone user, I liked the fact that this TC could broadcast the faster wireless-N signal to the appropriate devices and I could still connect my iPhone using the wireless-G signal. Both features work great and are very easy to set up.

not thrilled-not as good as airport extreme bs.

D. Lastofsky, Amazon
31 December 2009
  • Summary: i bought this to replace my airport extreme base station. i didnt have any problem setting it up since i duplicated my aebs settings but i felt that my wireless connection was slower than before. i also had several problems with my internet going down. apple was helpful but since it was a continuous issue, they suggested to exchange for a new one. instead i just returned it. i couldnt be bothered with the aggravation since my aebs worked fine.

Awesome product with the easiest set up I have ever seen!

Matthew J. Liptak, Amazon
31 December 2009
  • Summary: Not sure what all the negative talk is about this product. I have an iMac and this was the easiest set up I have ever seen for any type of electronic device. Trust me, I have a lot of gadgets and this one both router set up and time caspule were set up within minutes. It was so easy I thought I did something wrong. I gave up my complicated Linksys N router for this product because I love anythign Apple and the products are awesome and perform well.

Lots of room, good WiFi, extremely slow data transfer

PacMan, Amazon
31 December 2009
  • Summary: I've owned the Apple Time Capsule 1TB model for several months now. Pros: 1. Very large 1TB hard drive 2. Very fast WiFi connections 3. Easily sets up with your network (what Mac product doesn't?) 4. Much faster on my DSL network than the DSL wireless router I had previously connected Cons: 1. Extremely SLOW data transfer. I'm not exaggerating when I say it took 15hrs to backup a wired connection with about 250gb of data to transfer......

So easy a PC user can do it?

Works on my multi platform network: PC with Ethernet cable, MackBook with 802.11n, PS3, Wii, iphone1g, iphone3g,and Canon wireless printer/scanner on 802.11g network. Dual wireless antennas, keeps network running at top speeds with outstanding range!

Great router, good backup device, ok network disk

Jonathan Birge, Amazon
31 December 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. Typical Apple ease of use, with all configuration done by a very intuitive GUI application. Unfortunately, it's not a great network drive.
