AirPort Express Review

Maclife
13 August 2012
  • Conclusion: . It’s not quite as powerful as the Time Capsule ($299 and $499, www.apple.com ) or AirPort Extreme ($179), which can pump out three data streams to the Express’s two, and those two base stations also let you connect a USB hard drive, while the Express’s USB port is just for a printer. The Express is stuck with 10/100Base-T Ethernet speeds (no limit on Wi-Fi speeds) instead of Gigabit Ethernet.
  • Pros: Low price. Simultaneous dual-band 802.11 n Wi-Fi. Guest mode. New form factor. AirPlay streaming. Two 10/100 Base-T Ethernet ports.
  • Cons: No Gigabit Ethernet. Can't conect a USB hard drive.

  • Summary: It is unique in working easily as a WiFi range extender to let me work in the garage or out in the yard, and the best part is the remote audio.

Apple AirPort Express with AirTunes

  • Pros: Easy and high-quality wireless music serving from a computer, particularly for Mac users, plus the ability to fully replace one’s outdated wireless hardware with faster, more secure 802.11G. Small, attractive, and highly portable.
  • Cons: High price tag relative to competing but lesser products, Windows software is glitchy, Mac configuration software could be easier to use.

  • Summary: While the Airport Express has limitations (no remote, has to use iTunes, not the best music streamer around), it also has its merits (streams to USB printers, expands WI-Fi range, price). A decent all-rounder then.

Apple AirPort Express

PC Magazine
14 August 2008
  • Conclusion: The Apple AirPort Express is an affordable, easy-to-use 802.11g multifunction access point and digital music adapter that works with both PCs and Macs. As long as you stay in the MP3/AAC world and don't need photo or video support, it's a fine choice.
  • Pros: Simple and attractive. USB jack for printer. Plays all iTunes music.
  • Cons: No remote. No TV output, so you must go to host PC to control playback. Doesn't play WMA files. No photo or video support.

  • Conclusion: Apple's new AirPort Express is a neatly designed portable router, but there's little here to tempt owners of the original version.

Apple AirPort Express 2.0 review

  • Summary: Technically speaking, it's a kind of wall wart. That, trivia fans, is the correct name for anything that plugs into a mains socket and houses a body of electronics more complex than the usual three wires and a fuse you'd expect to see inside. So, like it or not, Apple's second generation AirPort Express is a wall wart. It's an ugly name, though, for a device that remains so very elegant in design and purpose.
