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.

  • 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 Base Station (802.11n)

CNET
23 May 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; imminently portable because of its small size; 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.

  • 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

Stuff.tv

  • 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. Get over it: in the next week, that little white box will change your life forever.
