    Perfect solution to my undiagnosed slow internet problem!!!

          Comments about The All-New AirPort Time Capsule:

          After having Comcast slow internet speed, replaced router (why didn't Comcast suggest that FIRST????) and chose Apple at my son's recommendation since I have all Apple products. Was skeptical that so many of my issues were resolved with this easy to install router with built in time capsule (was able to get rid of my hard drive backup).

          Service and delivery comments:

          As always, ABT came through with fast shipping and even gave me an extra discount. Saved over $50.00 over Apple store price.

          No regrets. Glad we went forward with purchase. Looking to replace an 8-year old router and came across this fantastic product. Get wifi in all the rooms of the house now. The back-up hard drive is icing on the cake. We love our Apple products.

                  Comments about The All-New AirPort Time Capsule:

                  I bought this to replace my wifi router that broke, but noticed that this unit also contained a 2TB backup drive with the exact same footprint as the normal Apple Wifi router (Airport Extreme). This allows me to easily set up time machine on both my wife's and my own mac. It works amazingly well, in the background. I never even know it's running, and now our machines are magically backed up. The 2TB unit has plenty of space to spare (we had about 400GB between our two machines to back up), but there is a 3TB unit if you need more. It is also VERY easy to set up. The easiest router I've ever set up in fact. My only complaint is the cost (only reason why it gets 4 stars). It's a bit pricier than some of the best wifi routers (about double - another $150). Even given the fact it has a 2TB drive that still seems a bit much. Adding andother $100 for another TB (which I didn't do) definitely seems too much. But given all the benefits, I definitely think it's worth it.

                      Well worth the money!
