Summary: I do not use a wireless router in my home. The AirPort Express enables me to connect wirelessly to the Internet with my iPad, then leave the wireless off completely the rest of the time. This product does exactly what I want it to do.
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.
Excerpt: I purchased this to function as a range extender for my AirPort Time Capsule - 2 TB. It took two attempts to setup with my home wireless network because the first time it automatically detected a firmware update. The update downloaded quickly and restarted the modem, but gave a failed update message. It took a couple of resets to get the modem back up and running to reattempt the firmware upgrade. The second time it was successful.
Pros: Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
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.
Excerpt: This was a replacement for a New Belkin ac750 which worked extremely poorly. My expectations were not too high with the Express given the number of devices that would connect to it; but it is a great little workhorse. Oddly, i think it is better than my Extreme that I have at home.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
