This router is great! It is very easy to setup if you have a Mac. It has great range, I have a full 3 bars everywhere in my house. We have many products in my house that use wifi and you can't really tell a difference in speed when they're connected at the same time. The only negative I can think of is that it only has 3 Ethernet ports but that's just a minor complaint for me.
Love, Love, Love this product. I have been through several Linksys with constant hassle and failure. The Apple Airport Extreme is easy to use and it is much more reliable. Worth every penny!! Performance Performs better than anything else I have tried Durability Seems good to me Setup & Ease of Use Very easy to set up and use. I could use my IPhone to set it up to my PC and PS3. Service & Support Very helpful instructions came with the product and you can download a free App for additional support

The only problem with this was the instructions they that it came with to install I wish they would have said you need to download a driver would have saved a lot of trouble working it out myself. Otherwise I find that this works great no problems at all. Performance works like a charm no hiccups. Setup & Ease of Use Set up could have been better with better instructions

I've had the Apple AirPort Extreme for almost three years. I absolute love it! It is expensive but after reading hundreds of positive reviews, I felt it was the right choice. And I am glad I did. I have a Macbook and a PC and both work very well with it and never have problems. The range is great. I can sit on my deck or front porch and the internet never cuts out. It can have up to 5 wireless devices using it at same time. It is one of my favorite devices.
For years, we have used Linksys routers. As technology advances and we incorporate more items into our network, the Linksys was unable to work well with all of our devices. Looking into options for a better router with more capability, we came across the Apple Airport Extreme. Granted, we don't have FIFTY devices, which it is able to withstand, but we have probably about 12 at the max point right now. 2 computers, 2 smartphones, 2 gaming consoles, wifi printer, external harddrive... it supports all of them. It was a VERY simple installation. took about 5 minutes to setup and secure, versus a linksys which typically takes a half hour or so. My fiance is a techie guy and I've learned a lot about technology in the time we have been together, and after testing my computer speed on the old router then the new one, there is a pretty significant difference. Having the Macbook air (and my fiance with macbook pro), they work rather fast as a computer, but having the router and the computer together, makes everything seem to work so much smoother!

We recently had to purchase a new router since ours finally died and we decided to go with the Apple since we have a IMac and we both have ipad and iphones since we are Apple brand lovers and I have noticed a huge difference in how fast my computer runs. We have a large house with an apartment in the basement for my mom and she has internet down there and our router is on the 2nd floor and she gets internet just fine, better than before, she has noticed her computer running faster too. I know the speed all depends on the site and the internet connection but I haven't had nearly as many problems switching from site to site quickly like i used to have. We also get better connection with our iphones and ipads anywhere in the house or outside the house that we used to have to wait a while to surf the net on them now we don't. There is also a guest set up where if we have friends over and they want to use our wi fi they can connect to our guest wifi which we can put a password on and not have them have access to our actual personal wi fi, my husband says that it allows my moms computer and our ipads to back up things on our back up thing that we have which on the old router we could only back up stuff on the IMac. So he was tickled pink and I love not having to worry about my internet going out. Performance The internet is much faster with this.
I had many routers and most of them are unstable and overheat. I stopped buying routers until I get this one. The purchase price of Apple Airport Extreme is kind of ridiculous. But this is an one-time investment. I hook up the router for one Macbook Pro, one netbook (Windows OS), iPod Touch, and an iPad with no problems. The speed is super fast and you can print wireless from any of the devices connected to the router. Since it has a USP port to connect printer or hard drive for wireless printing/storage, some people are wondering if they can use a USB hub to connect their printer and hard drive at the same time. The answer is yes. You can have your external hard drive and printers (as many as you want) connected to the USB hub at the same time. The router is very stable and reliable. I had it hooked up in the living room and all other devices in the bedroom. It never drops any one of the devices. The only complaint is that its kind of expensive. But as I mentioned before, this is an one-time investment. Once you own it, you dont have to buy other routers anymore.
This is a great router. I've been using it for a while, but lately I have switched to using it as a wireless bridge only. It is nice that this device has Gigabit ethernet. It helps with transfers to/from my server connection. I would make sure to use the 5ghz option so there are better speeds on your wireless network in your area. The device works great and is fine for wireless, but if you are experiencing lower than expected (in my case 5mb/s transfer speedds on 802.11n/5ghz) you may want to look into running wire (only if you want high transfer rates). I would like to warn that the above rant is for geeks/nerds only. For most users this device will work wonderfully. The range is truly great on this device. This one unit covers my entire house (>2000 square foot house) and I dont' have any dead or low signal spots. In short, it's fast, easy to setup and also has an excellent reporting feature for when problems do arise on your network (Airport Utility)
This was the first wireless router I was able to hook up my Apple laptop, mac mini, 2 PC desktops, one with Windows 98 and other with ME and two laptops one with Windows 95 and Vista. Now I just have one printer and I am loving it. I might be high price, but speed and distance is great. Service was great with help setting up all computers. Would give 5 stars if not so pricey.
