Summary: I own four of these and use them to extend my Airport Extreme network. They are very easy to configure, and if you really know what you are doing, flexible. This one is located about 60 feet from the base unit and is on a different floor of my home and still reflects a good signal.
Summary: Note: I'm not a Mac user, I just own a Airport Extreme Router and found myself in a position where half of my home had no coverage. The Airport express is completely wireless (except for it's power requirement), small/compact (so easily hidden behind a couch), and dead easy to configure. In about 5 minutes I had configured it to extend the already existing wifi network from my Airport Extreme, and it does the job quite well!
Summary: It's a bit of a job to set up the unit as a range expander, especially with new OS i.e. Mountain Lion. The nice thing is portability. I use this on the first floor to help boost the router in the basement to the bedrooms on the second floor. I can also unplug it and take it outside in nice weather to use the wifi on the patio. A google search helped me rectify the set up issue and I was off a running in about 30 minutes.
Too cool! Everything to make your streaming, wireless dreams come true!

Summary: I bought the Apple Airport Express to help my families growing computer needs expand and handle with ease. Not only does it make printers WiFi that weren't prior to hooking it up it also allows me to stream music throughout my home from any device that I pair to it. I hate wires! Anything that can make my life less cluttered is a BONUS! Other network routers are complex and require a Phd to install this is pure Apple genius. Disc, Software install, Plug & Play!
Summary: Apple is a very good product. This product lets you organize your network music centre. Can use your data on HDD on all devices connected to a wi-fi network. This device can make your printer available for phone or tablet.
Summary: I bought it because a fly every week and I wanted to enhance the wi fi network in the Hotels. Very easy to set up!. Great performance vs others device. The best product for wi fi, very light, small.
Summary: I know loving Apple is the totally cool, hipster thing to do, but I have to admit that I love them anyway. I've had this router for years, and it just works. Plug it into the wall, plug the internet in, set up your name and password, and you're good to go. If it ever stops working, I'll be happy to buy another.
Summary: as with all things apple you just need to follow the easy instructions. In this case you simply plug in the unit and then on one of your computers that is wireless you just open up Utilities and airport and install. Let your machine do the work and you are done. Took me 10 minutes to get it up and running as an extension to my network... ie..... boost the signal to the front of my house.
Summary: Works wonders with playing music using my iPad2 and being able to print wirelessly from my mac and pc. Convenient to have everything I need in a small package. Would be nice if it can be set up to share a usb drive and a printer.
Summary: I got each of my kids one of these for their rooms - it extends my wireless network and lets them play their music remotely. I have also started using it to wake up my son. I fire up iTunes from downstairs and start it off pretty quiet and then blast him out of bed with a little AC/DC!
