Excerpt: I already had the airport extreme but we decided to go with the time capsule because its such a convenient way to back up our macs. I do professional photography and my wife is working on her masters, so any lost data would be catastrophic!! I will say, the initial back up takes quite awhile but after that your system speed should return to normal.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance
Solid performer, quirky to those not familiar with OSX.

Summary: I initially had a -g wireless device. When I first set up my TC I was miffed by the inconsistent response. Finally, I identified the degraded performance was related to the -g device. upgraded it to -n and turned of all but -n transmissions and performance went well above what it had been previously.
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: I own and operate a small video marketing company (9 work stations) where our wireless internet devices needed better connectivity than our older Apple Airport provided. The back-up function is a plus. We plugged it in in the basement of our two-story studio, set it up as instructed, tested the overall upload and download speed, and applauded at the result as it increased our wireless connection speed dramatically (nearly ten-fold). The set up process took 15 minutes.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible
Excerpt: Great product once it's setup. Had to spend 30 minutes on the phone with Apple support to get it going. Instructions are lacking. Apple advisor agreed it's not as seamless as one would expect.
Excerpt: the network speed is awesome. I connect all my devices through this router so that I can stream media to my TV.I gave 4 star for being bit expensive. I would say it should have been 50-60$ cheaper would make more sense!price is the only concern. otherwise, its pretty good router! (Yes, I would say its the best in my experience (changed around 5 routers so far!
