      Got A Deal on Refurbished

      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.

      This "Refurbished" Unit works, but not refurbished

      Geek Squad certified refurbished is far different than Apple's refurbished standards. yes the device works flawlessly. But unfortunately it is scratched up and does not look new. This looks like it was a floor model or it was rolling around somewhere... How do you scratch up your router? So weird.... Most people don't move around them much, so I am baffled how it got so dirty and scratched up. But I can handle a scratched up dirty router because most most of the time I am not holding it... And the price was significantly less... I just wished they were more honest about what it is, and not calling it refurbished... Maybe a better description would be: Works Great, Still has limited warranty, but it is used.

      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.

      I was hesitant to buy a refurbished device after reading very few negative reviews but I took a chance and boy am I pleased. The unit itself was in very good condition, hooked it up it was already configured so I reset it back to factory defaults and the setup was really easy. I've been buying Apple products for the last 2 years and I now know why people love Apple so much, I'm a new fan and I've completely switched from the MS world to Mac World. For $199.00 I am beyond happy right now. Thank you Best Buy!!!

      Purchased this for time machine primarily but discovered the router functions better with all my devices than my old router. The wireless AC is excellent for my MacBook Pro that also has wireless AC and also works better than my old router with my wifi extender because the wifi extender is keeping the connection better and devices attached to it are working better. I am now upgrading any gadgets I can over time that work with Wireless AC (such as my apple TV). I think the quote about apple products "they just work" really holds up with the Time Capsule.

      Lots of headaches, no help from BestBuy

      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!

      I was a little hesitant to buy refurbished but I took a chance. Package came in, it was well packaged, the device a little scratched. Had to do a factory reset and couldn't believe how easy the set up was. I'm relatively new with Apple products and understand why they are so well liked now. I definitely recommend taking a chance on refurbished, it hasn't failed me yet.

      I bought the Apple Airport Time Capsule as a gift for a family member that has two iPhones and three iPads, with thousands of pictures to backup. The reviews said that it was easy to set up the Time Capsule and then it would automatically backup all of your files daily. After downloading the Airport Utility App we tried to set up each of the devices. The Time Capsule does not even recognize any of the devices. Now I have learned that Apple has discontinued the Airport.
