Almost an Apple Nut, Staples
22 August 2013
Excerpt: I have an Apple Air Book - This unit almost sets itself up. Backup was crazy easy. And the speed of my Apple products is the fastest they have ever been on wifi (iPhone, iTouch, iPad and all my windows PCs).
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance
"Solid performer, quirky to those not familiar with OSX."

Pros: Consistent performance deals with structural obstacles well provided all devices are -n spec. Reliable hard drive, easy configuration with OSX devices.
Cons: With -g wireless devices in the network the performance takes a noticeable hit, particularly in usable range. Of note the device should be on the lower level of a multi floor home. Location is challenging if you are trying to use with -g devices.
Excerpt: It would be better if you could see the files and access them, similar to an external hard drive. But it worked perfectly to allow me to resolve a problem by doing a complete wipe of my hard drive and reinstalling everything. My files and data migrated back perfectly from the Time Capsule.
Excerpt: My computer is an iMac with 8 gigs of Ram. I also have a partition between Mac and windows to run two different operating systems on the same computer. The partition is VMware Fusion. The Time capsule rounds out the system. Every item that I use is compatible with Apple. With the extra memory the overall computer performance is like a rocket ship and every thing is backed up hourly automatically.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible
Excerpt: I had to change Network setting to DHCP and NAT using AirPort Utility. I also had to change the Wireless Security to WPA/WPA2 Personal and then everything worked great. Speed of WiFi was double my old 802.11g wireless router. Now wireless internet is just as fast as ethernet internet speed. I can transfer data from one computer to another at 90 mbps wirelessly. My wireless internet speed went from 23 mbps with my old router to 54 mbps on this new one.
Pros: 1. Most powerful wireless connection that I ever installed. 2. Easy to configure and manage on PC. 3. MS Vista and 7 backup app works great, and other backup applications work. 4. Fastest connection that I ever had after d-link, netgear.
Cons: 1. Has some limited network configuration, but I am not running a big business (8 devices on my small business network). 2. PC users will need to purchase backup software or depend on MS apps, but they work great.
