Great for streaming music using AirPlay!
21 January 2013
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.
Improved connection; love the wireless printing feature

Summary: I bought this router because I was having problems with connectivity between my MAC laptop and my old Linksys. The Airport Express fixed the problems with it but my hubby's Ipad (third generation) is slower and has less connectivity than before. The setup was very easy. I do love love the wireless print feature so I can print from my MAC wirelessly but haven't been able to figure out why the Ipad won't. I've tried a few things but can't figure it out.
Summary: I used the express to connect to my existing network and play music through my stereo. I love apple and most all their products because they just seem to work. this guy unfortunately was a little picky about getting set up. i spent a good 30 min frustrated in front of my computer. some of that was user error because i didn't know what specific type of wep key i had. but some of that was also the internet kept cutting between the express and my router and not going back.
Summary: I live the compact size which makes it easy to take with you when you travel. I also love the features like being able to stream music from your pc or mac to it with speakers or stereo connected to it! I do recommend however that you splurge for the stereo connection kit for better sound quality. You can also connect a printer to it so that you can print wirelessly as well.
Summary: Love the product, but apple, please make it able to disk share..but i love the streaming of music to my speakers, why cant apple come up with a beautiful program like airfoil. a must have if u have a airport express, streams music from all programs!
Summary: I have an AirPort Express connected to a BT HomeHub 4 via Powerline adaptors which streams my iTunes either from my Windows 7 desktop or MacBook Air. Not surprisingly it seems to work better with the Air than Windows as I often have to restart it before it will connect to the Windows 7 computer.
Summary: My Mac Computer is in a shed some 30 metres from the house connected to ADSL1. The Airport Express is installed as a base station Extender from Time Capsule. The WiFi signal is typically much slower than cable (DSL) but is received adequately in the centre area of the house. For those who are discouraged from using their computer in the house then this works if you have to receive/transmit from a distance.
