    EASY set up
    replaced an older airport base
    with ease

    i have an all mac set up (computer, phone, ipad) and all work flawlessly with the airport.

    i'm on line a LOT
    my connection has improved since upgrading to this new model.

    design is sleek and sexy

    packaging is minimal and secure
    easy to open
    warranty from apple is 1yr

    my old one still works but it was time to let it rest + i'm hopeful to have many years use with this new airport extreme base station.

    *i chose NOT to get the backup 2T model because some said it (hard drive) made noise and i keep the base station by my bed.

    happy customer. thanks. apple and abt for having competitive pricing and services.

      Faster internet than before. Really easy setup - plays really well with Apple iPhones and iPad. Great signal strength around the area, and works great with Apple Express to extend coverage to far away places.

          Can't really compare speed and power since I haven't done tests with other routers. But in our home network we got a boost in wi-fi range and speed. Set-up was a breeze. So far, the connections are stable. So, we're happy.
