Review: Apple Time Capsule 1TB

Wired
25 August 2009
  • Excerpt: College roommates can be dicey. They steal your food, soil the bathroom and think nothing of using your beer bong without asking. But what are you going to do? Live on your own? Oh please. Riddle us this: Without roommates, who’s going to road trip it to Vegas with you at 2 a.m. on a random Tuesday?
  • Pros: Lets you set up a secure network and a guest network. Fast dual-band Wi-Fi. A terabyte of network storage. Automatic backup via Time Machine for Leopard users. Can access hard drive via Mobile Me.
  • Cons: Works with PCs, but you need a Mac to get all the benefits. Little in the way of troubleshooting help if things go sideways. Skews toward the pricey side.

PC Magazine

  • 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.

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...
  • 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
