New Airport Express a tiny Wi-Fi base station powerhouse

Good Gear Guide.au
25 June 2012
  • Conclusion: For the money, the Express makes an effective base station for modestly sized apartments or homes, or where access is only needed in a few adjacent rooms in an office. This sleek model is the right choice for many, and at $80 less than the AirPort Extreme, a prudent one as well.

Apple AirPort Express Base Station review

PriceRunner
19 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Turning your house into a wireless network doesn’t need huge, monolithic boxes taking up all your precious space. The Apple Airport Express Base Station is smaller than a door mouse’s house and has more talent than all the contestants on Britain’s Got Talen combined.
  • Pros: Very small and affordable compared to the likes of the Sony NAS-SC55PKE and Philips NP1100 , this offers more than just wireless audio streaming: you can use it to share a printer or boost the range of your home Wi-Fi network. It also links up with any iTunes-equipped Mac or PC and offers excelle...

  • Conclusion: We also found that the AirPort Express takes a significant hit compared with other 802.11n devices when you use it at long distance. At the 5.0GHz frequency, Apple's Time Capsule is actually near the top of its class at range, posting an impressive 42.27Mbps from 60 metres.
  • Pros: Not as fast as other 802.11n routers, Can't connect an external hard drive to the USB port, No Ethernet ports for wired clients
  • Cons: New, faster 802.11n wireless standard, Same price as the original model, Audio streaming capability remains unique, Incredibly portable, Easy setup
