"Solid performer, quirky to those not familiar with OSX."
2 August 2013
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.
Pros: Just about everything. Sharing printers, access point, time machine wireless hard drive all in one compact box instead of cables and boxes everywhere. You can take down your rubber chicken and voodoo alter used to keep everything working before. Easy to administer.
Cons: Could integrate into windows a little better but no worse than most smb networking products.
Pros: It does everything my regular $80 2tb external hard drive did but now for only 400% that price I can put it wirelessly on my coffee table so that my guests know that I use apple products.
Cons: It doesn't actively inform others that I also own an iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPad, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini or that I intend to preorder and wait in line for the iPhone 6 and iPad 5.
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.
