    Got A Deal on Refurbished Posted by: from: on I got the Best Buy refurbished model 802.11ac 2 TB Time Capsule for $169. Couldn't pass it up at that price as I was considering getting a new AirPort with 802.11ac. Came in the box with some sort of sticky residue all over it. I was able to remove most of it with alcohol wipes. Under the light, you can see marks all over it (which bugs me but could be expected), so I'll probably never buy refurbished from Best Buy again. As for the actual operation of the router, I plug it in and AirPort Utility doesn't find anything new. It appears the Time Capsule wasn't reset to factory defaults (a fairly easy procedure that you think a company would want to do before reselling a product), so I did it myself, then was able to set it up, pulling my settings from my old AirPort Extreme. Seems to work great. The wi-fi seems to be stable and reliable. Have it set to back up my MacBook Air to it. I know this router doesn't have a lot of extra features and customization, but I don't need that. The setup and management of this router is simple and easy to understand, which I consider a feature itself. Would definitely recommend if you want a wireless-ac router that you can also back up your Macs to and/or use as a file server, although if I were to order it again, I'd go with Apple refurbished instead of Best Buy. It probably wouldn't have been as sticky.

    Really disappointed Posted by: from: on Maybe it's because it was refurbished, but after a couple of days, it started having connection issues with the internal hard drive. And that's after I had placed items on there for back up. As the router it worked great. But I really hated that after finding it for a great deal, I couldn't exchange at my local store and ended up having to buy a new one. (Without the HDD)

    Works great, simple setup Posted by: from: on I purchased the refurbished 2gb Time Capsule to save $. It was packaged nicely and was in good condition. It does have a couple small scrapes on it but I can't see them from my couch! Set up was very easy on my MacMini. Time Machine works great for my backups. No issues. 5ghz wifi speeds are excellent. Range is very good but slightly less than my Netgear Nighthawk. Wish it had four ports instead of only 3 but, most routers only have 3 so can't really ding a star for that. Met my expectations and would buy again. Simple to set up and just works! No dropouts like I constantly had with my Netgear. Save a bunch of cash and try a refurbished model.

    Great router Posted by: from: on This is my 2nd one I loved the first so much I Boone for my law student daughter. The backup is auto so I never have to remember to backup and the router is 2x or more faster then the one leased thru time Warner. Also the range is far greater before this device I had to use a extender to get internet in my backyard by the pool and know I'm online outside with plenty of speed. Great purchase !!

    Lots of headaches, no help from BestBuy Posted by: from: on I think it is working now, months after I bought it. There was no documentation included in the package on how to set it up. BestBuy couldn't bother to copy instructions for a refurbished product! Even though I had purchased the Geek Squad warranty, they refused to help me. (Apple did, eventually.) I now have to restart my modem 6 to 8 times a day, had the DSL provider in here twice, but the problem persists. I just hope the Airport tower is doing the job. I am very unhappy with BestBuy's service on this purchase!

    Best Wifi router I've ever owned Posted by: from: on Bought the Airport Time Capsule during a refurbished sale at Bestbuy online. Got it for the wifi only but quickly setup the Time Machine backup on my MBP. It's been rock solid since the day I installed it. Never had a need to reset the unit. Also the Airport Utility app works great for changing settings such as DNS.

    Works great! Posted by: from: on I got this to help expand my network. My house is brick and in one area the wifi signal needs to penetrate thru the brick. The signal was very weak so I purchased this router to try to remedy this problem. Thankfully this router did a great job and almost doubled my speed in that area. Great result!! Love how all the Mac products work together so well!! Definitely recommend!!!

    Works really well Posted by: from: on The setup was basically 'plug and play' and took no longer than 5 minutes. The drive was immediately recognized by my Apple devices. I would highly recommend this product as a router and a backup device.
