Apple Time Capsule

CNET
29 October 2009
  • Summary: Apple's hybrid 802.11n wireless router/networked hard drive offers some powerful data backup features for Mac owners, as well as Apple's typical pleasing design. Windows users and anyone who demands speed from their 802.11n network will be disappointed.

  • Cons: Only average networking performance; few advanced storage features beyond backup capabilities, and those only for Mac users.
