Apple Time Capsule

  • Excerpt: I used this product for creating a Wifi network and as a backup device. The product looks beautiful, awesome design which is very pleasing to the eye. Perhaps I will put this on a display and marvel it. What is not so great, it did not work. It was unable to connect to the internet while my humble cheap router did. The back up really never happened as it kept hanging. I returned it to B&H and they were very helpful.
  • Pros: Design Look
  • Cons: Does Not Work

It is not a wireless hard drive

  • Excerpt: As I have a wireless router from my internet provider, I was hoping to use this mainly as an airport express (extending wifi network)+ wireless hard drive for Time Machine. I was on the phone with apple support for an hour at least 1) to learn that it needs to be connected to an ethernet cable all the time, and 2) to set it up and deal with its competing with my internet provider's router. After the set-up, it works fine, with these caveats: 1.
  • Pros: Quiet Operation
  • Cons: Hard To Set Up, Large Footprint

The heat shortens the useful life....

  • Excerpt: The time capsule is poorly designed and the ventilation fan just moves hot air around in a sealed environment. Do a search for time capsule issues and learn that most fail from overheating in 12-18 months, just after the warranty expires. Better off buying a 2TB external drive or NAS and use your existing wireless router for 1/2 the cost of this pretty (useless) device.
  • Cons: Runs Hot

Faulty Apple hardware/software that stop backing up after just several months!

  • Summary: Sadly this external back-up drive just stop working at the beginning of December 2014. Upon talking to staff at Cambridge Mac store they advised me to switch it off and disconnect all the wires, leave it to rest and then re-connect and re-start everything again. That trick worked until the end of January, when on Friday 30 January 2015 TIME capsule stop backing up again due to "NOT ENOUGH SPACE AVAILABLE".

Mine failed, in fact it never really got going

  • Summary: Picked this up for good price from Amazon - and initially set up was ok, with new network being created. It fell off the network repeatedly over first few hours, and decided to send it back. Decided to reset and gave another chance - went to time machine on my iMac and set up this drive, for it to start and pretty much immediately get a failure message - unable to read this disk.

Ne fonctionne malheureusement pas !

  • Summary: Après avoir longtemps attendu, je me suis enfin décidé pour cette TC. Toutes les étapes ont été scrupuleusement suivies mais il m'a été impossible de la configurer pour cause de problème de disque dur. L'utilitaire Airport indiquait : "le disque interne doit être réparé". Je suis donc très déçu par ce produit que je viens de retourner à Amazon afin de me faire rembourser, un échange étant impossible car le vendeur originel ne semble plus avoir de stock.

  • Summary: *Ich bin ein grosser  Fan aber die Apple Time Capsule würde ich wegen Preis und Leistung Nie weiter empfehlen, da es schon was billiges gibt, welches mehr Leistung ergibt! *Übrigens es kann nicht mit der Apple TV verbinden werden! *von Apple iDevices (iPhone,iPod Touch oder iPad) kann man nicht auf Inhalt zugreifen, allein die beste Apps für zusammen Bindung von Apple iDevice mit der  Time Capsule sind erst nicht kostenlos und auch nicht von Bugs befreiet!
