User Review

Jason W., Newegg
7 January 2011
  • Summary: One of Apple's design failures - it's a great idea, but bad execution, and I've been an Apple fan for years. This device has merit - but not in this application.
  • Pros: Pretty good wifi coverage. Looks great, blends with other Apple products. Easy to set up with the Apple software, either or Mac or PC.
  • Cons: runs HOT. Not easy to partition data. No way to throttle traffic. I've had two, both died after a little over a year. Quirky errors, then finally gave up the ghost, and it all seemed related to heat. Really a lack of ventilation on these units.

time capsule

12 August 2008
  • Summary: I bought time capsule fairly early after the release. It was easy to set up and to configure. However after a while I started getting errors and coudn't do more backups. Looking for solutions I found it's not an isolated problem. and many others have experiencing it.
  • Pros: easy to work with
  • Cons: still buggy

Very disappointed with this purchase

Karim Sawaya, Amazon
14 May 2015
  • Summary: Keeps disconnecting and reconnecting. Clearly a faulty item. Very disappointed with this purchase. A waste of a money. However I am very pleased with the customer service, who happily agreed for me to return the item for inspection and issue a refund.

Avoid if you can, works for a year max reliably.

Mr Jed Pearson, Amazon
26 June 2009
  • Summary: Slow drive speed when doing large backups, and very slow restore speed even plugging an ethernet cable into it. Many problems associating old backups if you buy a new HDD or Mac. Its also been losing files after 16 months and now looks like its stopped working.

Kombination aus Router und Backup-Platte? Besser nicht!

Dr. Mario Scholl, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: Wie bei Apple typisch, ist die Time Capsule schnell eingerichtet und tut was sie soll. Aber, wie jeder weiß, können Festplatten irgendwann ihren Geist aufgeben. Die in meiner Time Capsule hat das nach etwas über 2 Jahren getan. Womit jetzt zwei iMacs ohne Backup dastehen.

teuer - Apple-Hardware - aber Schwächen

rsweb_on_amzon, Amazon
12 April 2013
  • Summary: habe ich schon lange als 2. Sicherungsmedium im Einsatz => nach Problemen mit der Komplett-Wiederherstellung eines iMac zusätzliche Sicherung auf externe HDD. Sehr große Kapazität aber schlappe Transferrate und langes wakeup. Kein hard power off - kein soft reset per software => Stecker ziehen.

Otto Ruthenberg, Amazon
28 April 2011
  • Summary: es mag ja sein, dass die time capsule nett aussieht, aber die einrichtung einer dsl internet verbindung der telekom darüber ist ein horror, der meinen glauben an apples bedienerfreundlichkeit völlig vernichtet hat.

Schlafmütze

amazonas, Amazon
6 November 2010
  • Summary: - Festplatte schaltet ab, wonach der Zugriff eine gefühlte Ewigkeit dauert - Gerät bei aktiver HD recht laut - Schlafmodus lässt sich nicht steuern - für Streaming nicht geeignet - NAS-funktionalität nur rudimentär vorhanden + eignet sich allgemein gut als Warmhalteplatte dafür aber definitiv zu...
