Summary: I bought this product to match the air extreme that I have, with this express I can extend my network and connect a usb printer to it. Looks great next to my apple TV and the utility to set up and monitor can be done from either my phone or tablet. Great addition to my apple line or products.
great if you have all apple stuff. wish the usb could be used for a HDD.

Summary: Da Bomb! Big upgrade from the last express. Streams music and connects to a usb printer if you wish. I just wish that the USB input could be used to connect an external HDD (like the airport extreme). And the extreme of course does not have an audio output for music.
Very good product but set-up more complex then Apple stated

Summary: Have only had it for a month and it was a nightmare to set-up, which is why only 4 stars. Apple Care didn't know that Time Warner, Verizon and most other carriers, no longer allow to shut down of modem or taking out the battery. Spent several hours and couldn't get iPad to find modem. Was about to return to Apple when I decided to call TW. I was told it would have to shut down system for 5 minutes and reset modem from main terminal. Then the set-up was pretty quick.
Summary: All I wanted was a product that would allow me to wireless transmit audio from my Ipad to a stereo (via the aux port). The Apple airport express is perfect for this. I can transmit audio from Pandora, Spotify, Youtube, Netflix, etc. from my Ipad to my living room stereo using the airport express.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast, Sleek Design
Great product, easy to install, and has some excellent features.

Summary: I had a first generation airport and in my opinion it was way more stable. I have quite a few wifi devices at home and once a week there is an issue with one of them and the airport, its quite annoying. The setup is easy as hell, just plug and play basically. Besides that issue its a nifty device, that let you airplay which is awesome, and when it work, its a 10.
Summary: Good little router. Breeze to setup, durable, and connects to the internet fast. Some drawbacks are only one ethernet port, and broadcasts at "g" speed. Its range is just ok, but for the money can't be beat. I like that I can print from either my desktop, or my laptop.
Excellent, reliable device. Big improvement over the previous model.

Summary: After experiencing various problems with the previous model of AirPort Express, I was pleasantly surprised to find this one really easy to configure and problem-free. It is also nice to have a regular power cable rather than having the whole device hanging from the wall outlet. Moreover, with the latest UPnP security hole affecting many routers, I was happy to realize that AirPort Express was not really vulnerable.
Summary: This is the old "wall wart" version of the Airport Express. (The current form factor recently changed to a hockey puck shape). I already own a solid wireless router, the Apple Airport Extreme. The reason I purchased the Express is to use AirPlay (formerly referred to as AirTunes) so I can stream music from iTunes on my Mac and the Music app on my iPhone 4S to my stereo. It works pretty well, but the sound does drop out occasionally.
Great feature set, fits in well with my Apple ecosystem.

Summary: The Airport Express is a great router in that it can be used as aWi-Fi network device and a hardwired ethernet router simultaneously, which is what I wanted it for. I use the Express with a iMac, AppleTV, wireless printer and a couple of iPhones with no problems. The setup was a bit tedious for me and I've set up numerous wired/wireless networks in my home in the past including one using a 1st generation Airport Express.
