Apple's 802.11ac-enabled Time Capsule is fast and beautiful but lacks originality

CNET

  • Summary: As long as you don't need expert-level features, the 2013 AirPort Time Capsule is an excellent backup/file server for Apple fans -- especially for those with 802.11ac-enabled Macs.
  • Cons: A Wi-Fi speed boost and a new design are the only real improvements versus the previous model. Not the best option if you're looking for advanced features, household media streaming, and non-Mac options.

  • Conclusion: The Time Capsule is the best thing we’ve seen the world of backup for ages, making networking shared devices hassle free. It's pretty pricey though, and only works with Apple products.
  • Pros: This little beauty from Apple is the perfect way to protect your Mac against fire, flood and acts of God. Why? Well it’s an all-in-one router with a wireless hard drive. In the flesh we found that it shovelled data from your Mac speedier than Lewis Hamilton can drive in the wet – that’s thanks to the use of N-standard Wi-Fi. Also, as with most Apple products, it looks stunning. We were even able to hook it up to a printer thanks to a USB slot on the rear. Bonus!
  • Cons: Unfortunately, the Time Capsule only works with Mac computers, so if you're a dedicated Windows devotee there's not really much here for you to get excited about. Also, for best performance it can't be too far from your machine despite its N-standard talents.

Apple Time Capsule

  • Excerpt: Son nom est peu évocateur. Time Capsule est à la fois un routeur Wi-Fi 802.11n (draft) et un disque dur réseau d’une capacité de 500 Go ou 1 To. C’est avec un Mac qu’il est plus simple d’utiliser Time Capsule. Ce disque dur réseau fonctionne en effet de pair avec Time Machine, l’utilitaire de sauvegarde intégré à . Time Machine assure la sauvegarde automatique ou manuelle du contenu de plusieurs Mac sur ce disque dur réseau.
  • Pros: Fonction routeur Wi-Fi, design, capacité de 500 Go ou 1 To, silencieux, port USB pour partage de périphériques.
  • Cons: Performances moyennes, sauvegardes automatiques réeservées aux Mac sous Leopard, ne fait pas office de serveur d’impression ni de serveur de media.
