Summary: I purchased this product because I wanted to extend my existing WiFi network. Reading the documentation, this did not seem like it would be a problem; the Airport Express is pretty easy to set up for network extension.
Summary: I purchased two used from two different vendors (~$60 ea.) for the sole purpose of playing iTunes simultaneously on stereos in two rooms in addition to my PC. The first one is still working great.
Summary: I have used Airport Expresses exclusively for our home network for many years. Overall, I love them. Wireless printing from all the computers is great. Airtunes (wireless music streaming) via Apple's system or Airfoil work beautifully.
Summary: As long as you don't have to connect to a VPN using a Mac, this product is really great. Coming from a Linksys router, the set up was extremely easy and was up and running in 5 to 10 minutes. The instructions and software are very easy to follow.
Works reasonably well but will only last a year or two

Summary: I've been mostly satisfied with the Airport - it gets good reception, it looks nice, it was reasonably easy to set up, and running music through itunes to my stereo is nice (although sometimes it seems to struggle, only playing a second or two, pausing, repeat).
Summary: It took me a full day to work out the bugs in setting my Express up to work with my Mac Mini and my wife's Mac Powerbook. First it worked on one, but the other could not find it. Then it didn't work at all.
Extremely Difficult To Set Up for Networking with Mac and PC

Summary: Let me start off by saying, that once we got all the bugs worked out, this is an awesome little piece of technology. But I must also say, that it took an entire week to get all the functions to work correctly between just two computers on our home network (my I-Mac and my wife's Vista based laptop).
Summary: I bought this as an airplay receiver to use exclusively with my Hi-Fi. After reading so many reviews that stated the sound quality was ok. I took the plunge. Sound quality is nasty, no definition, no clarity, really muffled sound.
