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

CNET
6 October 2013
  • 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.

Apple Time Capsule

PC Magazine
23 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Apple has done a fine job of building an easy way for Leopard users to perform Time Machine backups over the network, but don't expect advanced NAS features.
  • Pros: Wireless-n at 2.4 or 5 GHz. Flawless operation with networked Time Machine backups, as well as with USB hard drive and printer sharing. Good price.
  • Cons: Lacks home media-serving features. Printer sharing but no print server. No hardware redundancy. No easy upgrade path.
