Small, powerful, good product If you can't afford the newest one, get this

Summary: I'm reviewing from a PC standpoint. Obviously, if have a decent Apple environment this can become handy in expanding your WiFi network and use it for your iTunes experience. I will not be talking about that here. I'll be using a basic standpoint from a run-of-the-mill user.
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.
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.
Summary: I've used AirPort Expresses for many years now, and I've had nothing but good experiences with them. That said, please note that, as of today (June 9, 2012), this is no longer the latest version, and the newest version seems better. I would at least look at it prior to buying this.
Summary: I have had several wireless home networks for years with several wireless routers. I have some issues in my 2 story home with reception right up stairs from the router and far end of the house, where my son has a laptop and ps3.
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.
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.
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! lol
Aggravating Setup for FIOS Users, But Great After That

Summary: I extensively read about all options to get music on my home server to my kitchen and decided upon the Airport Express. I have been on a bit of an anti-Apple kick lately (even though I have an iPhone and use iTunes) after I found I had to move all my pictures out of iPhoto in order to share them...
An amazing gadget, but WPA2, 802.11n and speed issues for many networks

Summary: The set of features is remarkable for this little device, but I don't want to repeat what's already covered here on that. Some people wanting to use the Airport Express may run into two issues when using the Apple Airport Express with non-Apple networks: 1) WPA2 SUPPORT IS LIMITED: Currently (April...
