Apple Airport Extreme Base Station with Gigabit Ethernet

PC Magazine
17 July 2009
  • Conclusion: This is a solid draft-n router choice for Apple users, who get the usual sleek Apple design and easy setup, along with dual-band capability, but Windows users will largely be left out in the cold.
  • Pros: Good performer. No appreciable throughput drop with WPA2/AES security. Easy Mac-based setup. Can share a USB hard drive over an Apple network.
  • Cons: Apple-centric—not much thought given to Windows users. No firewall, even though this is intended as a home Internet gateway. Awful performance with security other than WPA2.

Ars Technica
22 February 2007
  • Conclusion: Switching from a bargain (read: free after rebate) wireless router, the AirPort Extreme is a breath of fresh air. I've used the previous model at my place of employment and have had a lot of experience with the Express model (which I still love for its form factor), and I find that the features...

  • Conclusion: The uncluttered 5GHz spectrum gave the best results by far, with the 100MB test file taking only 10.1 seconds to transfer. However, the performance in using 2.4GHz was disappointing -- we wouldn't recommend using this setting in built-up urban and commercial areas as other wireless network (and...

  • Cons: Excellent performance in 802.11n-only mode (5.0GHz), Small, minimalist, inconspicuous, USB port for sharing printers or external drives, IPv6 and a range of security features

Обзор гигабитного двухдиапазонного роутера Apple Airport Extreme с портом USB

Ferra
31 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Точка доступа Airport Extreme — типично «эппловский» продукт. Дорогой, красивый, хорошо продуманный и в тоже время несколько ограниченный. Он должен обеспечивать всё, что надо пользователю, но только в рамках потребностей, предусмотренных Apple.
