  • Cons: Lacks home media-serving features. Printer sharing but no print server. No hardware redundancy. No easy upgrade path.

Apple Time Capsule 802.11n Wi-Fi Hard Drive 2009

Pocket Lint
30 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Out of the box, like most Apple products, the Time Capsule is a breeze to use, providing a convenient backup and networking hub in one package. However, this does start to look a little expensive if you already have many of these functions in an existing router, with the 1TB option being well overpriced.
  • Pros: Basic setup simple, Time Machine, Windows PC support
  • Cons: Can take a while to route out all the options, gets pretty hot, no physical access to drive, expensive
