Summary: the time capsule is easy to set up, and works seamlessly with my imac's time machine back-up program. the range of the wifi signal is better than my old netgear N router, and using the bonjour program, even my windows PCs can print off of my imac. a dual band router without a hard drive costs anywhere from 100-200 dollars, and for 300 you get that + 500GB of network storage that works with XP, vista, and OS X.
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". It does get very warm compared to the Mac Mini (even with a new 320GB 7200 RPM drive I put in the Mini). Probably because the power supply is inside the Time Capsule. I am just using it for the "Time Machine" and it works very very well so far. Very seamless.
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 codger to take the plunge. It will happen. The capsulel runs soooooo hot. Is this normal? I don't want to fry anything. All in all a pleasant experience.
A wireless router with a lot of bells and gigabytes.

Summary: Let me start by saying that I am not using this as a router, just as a wireless access point. Apple has created a great idea - wireless devices that are easy to configure, lots of features and very reliable. While they are not the cheapest devices on the market, they are worth the extra money. Rather then configure this through a web browser, you use the Airport Utility - which is fairly strait forward and warns you if there you have a potential configuration problem.
Easy set-up; impressive wireless range; adding additional USB storage a snap

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. I opted for the 500GB model because of price, and because I already had a 250GB USB storage device. Setup was easy.
Summary: I had originally purchased a Linksys WRT160n a few weeks ago and for the most part it was a fine router but it had one issue. I couldn't run my sling player and surf the net at the same time. Seemed to be something with the Linksys uPnP but even disabling that feature only fixed the issue slightly, basically surfing was so slow it was not worth it.
Awesome product with the easiest set up I have ever seen!

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.
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.
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!
