Apple AirPort Express 2012 Review: This Is What A Router Should Be

Gizmodo
27 June 2012
  • Excerpt: It’s hard to have significant feelings about a router — it’s supposed to just work and shut up. But no router has ever just worked and shut up like Apple’s newest AirPort — a white inch closer to networking perfection.

Good Gear Guide.au
28 May 2011
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Excellent value, Compact for travel, AirTunes audio streaming
  • Cons: Lower throughput than Extreme and Time Capsule, No Gigabit Ethernet ports

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. But what’s it like as a music streamer ?
  • 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 excellent sound quality when hooked up to an external hi-fi. Best of all, it’s compact, dirt cheap and will fit in any corner of your room.
  • Cons: It will only work with iTunes, and unlike other models, such as the aforementioned Sony NAS-SC55PKE , you also have to use your computer to control the music playback rather than a remote control or external screen, which limits usability a great deal. Because it’s such a versatile little beast, it also means that it’s less muso-friendly than some of its rivals out there.

Apple AirPort Express Base Station (802.11n)

ZDNet
26 March 2008
  • Summary: Don't pick up a new, 802.11n-enabled AirPort Express if you're looking for superfast wireless networking performance. You should consider it, however, if you're in the market for a new Wi-Fi router that offers portability, ease of use, and the unique ability to stream iTunes over your network.
  • Pros: New, faster 802.11n wireless standard, Same price as the original model, Audio streaming capability remains unique, Incredibly portable, Easy setup
  • Cons: 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
