Meh

Trac N., Newegg
12 May 2011
  • Summary: I tried to use it as a NAS for both my Macbook Pro and Windows 7 desktop. I had all my music library and photos on stored on it. I also had a printer hooked up to it. I had quite a bit of trouble with a installation on the Windows machine.
  • Pros: Seemless backup, and integration with other Apple products. It's pretty.
  • Cons: Performance was average. It runs pretty hot.

Apple Time Capsule

1000121603, CNET
14 August 2010
  • Summary: Solid and stylish looking product which is a breeze to set up. It may not be the quickest backup option around but for laptop users it really is the best way to back up I've come across - with Time Machine in OS X backing up happens automatically at hourly intervals as long as you're within signal...
  • Pros: Wireless, looks great, easy to set up
  • Cons: expensive, can't connect via USB, it's the old Apple white casing

Time Consuming Time Capsule

Chip626, PriceGrabber
21 April 2008
  • Summary: The easy set up that is promised never materialized. After receiving the Time Capsule, I then spent two hours with three different Apple support techs. Eventually, they were able to get me backing up. It was a matter of having to reset my I.P. address and several other settings.
  • Pros: Works efficiently
  • Cons: Took two phone calls to Apple support to setup. Costly

Good quality - high price

  • Summary: Typical Apple quality product with typical Apple price tag! Frustratingly my unit came with a 2 pin power adapter and not the UK version meaning more expense before it's usable.

Prone to overheating - so buy a USB fan, too

Ben Rochey-Adams, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the Time Capsule as a file storage device. Since then, I have learned the error of my ways - you are supposed to use it as back-up to your main file storage and as a wireless router.

Potentially excellent product let down by poor wifi performance

  • Excerpt: As a concept, the idea of being able to back everything up in the background without actually having to do anything is an excellent one. To this end, the Time capsule does its job very well. Being able to look back a year ago for a file you may have deleted is also a very useful one.

Fine for back up but as server

Jim Connor, Amazon
27 June 2009
  • Summary: This was a replacement purchase but with the intention of using the Time Capsule as a server as well as backup unit. The Time Capsule works brilliantly as a back up unit in an Apple Mac environment, however the life span of Time Capsules has been problematic: early TC life spans were circa 18...
