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.
  • 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.

  • 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.

Apple AirPort Express

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: If you need to set up (or extend) a wireless network and also have an iTunes music collection, the AirPort Express is a must-have addition. It works easily and flawlessly.
  • Pros: Gives you an 802.11g wireless network and a way to stream iTunes music to your stereo in one tiny, affordable device. Setup is wizard-driven and should be painless for most users.
  • Cons: You can only play music at either the PC or the connected stereo, not both simultaneously. Unlike full-fledged media hubs, there is no way to control the streaming music when you're away from your PC.

  • Pros: Small size, easy configuration
  • Cons: No room for external antenna

  • Excerpt: Apple’s tiny AirPort Express extends the range of your Wi-Fi network and lets you run Ethernet to hard-to-reach corners, but you can also plug powered speakers into the 3.5mm auxiliary jack to create a wireless speaker that shows up in iTunes on your computer or iGadget.

Apple Airport Express review

  • Summary: We feel your disappointment. You’ve removed the Airport Express from its iPod-like packaging assuming that you’re the proud owner of Geekdom’s unsung superstar. But instead, you seem to be clutching a white three-pin plug.

Multi-Room Audio um wenig Geld - Apple Airport Express im Test

centauri.de
4 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Als reine Netzwerk-Lösung gibt es Besseres, aber als Audio Streaming-Client im Zusammenspiel mit Apple iTunes und einem mobilen Device wie iPhone, iPod touch und iPad als Fernbedienung ist dieses kleine Teil von Apple ungeschlagen.
  • Pros: Sehr einfach zu installieren, kann sowohl mit Windows PCs als auch Macs eingesetzt werden, überaus intuitive Bedienung mit kostenloser App für Apple iPod touch, iPhone und iPad, digitaler Ausgang erlaubt den Einsatz hochwertiger Wandler
  • Cons: integrierter D/A-Wandler erfordert unbedingt einen zusätzlichen Wandler eines ausgewiesenen Audio-Spezialisten
