ICON Loading...

Back up a lifetime's worth of memories with the Time Capsule, a wireless hard drive that works seamlessly with Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard. It’s also a full-featured 802.11n Wi-Fi base station with simultaneous dual-band support that works with Mac computers, PCs, iPhone, iPod touch, Apple TV, and virtually all 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi wireless devices - all at the same time. The massive 1TB or 2TB server-grade hard drive gives you all the capacity and safety you need for backing up all your Mac computers.

  • newegg Automatic Backup with Time Machine Time Capsule works automatically with Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard to create the perfect no-hassle backup solution. There are no cables, and you can back up all the computers in your home to a central location. New technologies in Time Capsule and refinements to Time Machine make backing up to Time Capsule using Snow Leopard up to 60 percent faster than before.
  • newegg Easy Wireless Networking Connect your DSL or cable modem to Time Capsule, then quickly set it up with the easy-to-use AirPort Utility, which is included for both Mac OS X and Windows. In minutes, you and up to 50 others can use your Mac computers or PCs to surf the web, stream video, share photos, and more — without wires.
  • newegg Simultaneous Dual-band Wi-Fi For maximum range and compatibility, Time Capsule works simultaneously on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, allowing all the devices on the network to use the most efficient band automatically. It uses the latest 802.11n wireless technology, so you can enjoy up to five times the Wi-Fi performance and up to twice the range of 802.11g wireless networks. And improvements in antenna design give you up to 50 percent better performance and up to 25 percent better range than with the previous-generation Time Capsule.
  • newegg Guest Networking, plus Strong Security and Access Controls Set up a separate Wi-Fi network with a separate password for your visitors. Simply enable the guest networking feature, and your guests can use the Internet but can’t access other parts of your private network, such as your computers, printers, and attached hard drives. Protect yourself with the built-in firewall and industry-standard encryption technologies including WPA/WPA2 and 128-bit WEP.
  • newegg Wireless Drive Sharing Time Capsule also works great as a wireless hard drive, whether you have a Mac or a PC. It sets up in a snap, giving you a networked hard drive you can use for storing and sharing all kinds of files. If you’re a MobileMe member using a Mac with Mac OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard, you can even access the files on the drive over the Internet.
  • newegg Print without Wires Print documents, photos, and more from any room in your home or office to a central printer connected to Time Capsule via USB.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Backup And WiFi Access Point

Pros: Seamless wired and wireless backups.
Good 802.11n performance even with b-g clients.
Gigabit network ports.
Easy to use management software.
Copies around 31 megabytes per second over ethernet to internal hdd.

Cons: Limited expandability. Only one USB port for either HDD expansion or printer sharing.
Works just OK with non Macintosh clients.
No backup software for Windows clients.

Other Thoughts: This is a really good product. We have 6 systems that use Time Machine to backup to the internal 2TB drive, and use the usb port to share a 2TB HDD with video and music files. The wireless performance and range is good even in NYC. I have tried many of these NAS type drives and this is the first one I actually like. Most products in this price area are painfully slow to copy data to or were unstable.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat isn't wrong about this?

Pros: It's a 2 tb drive
It has network connectivity

Cons: Everything.

Not only does the drive perform slowly for what it advertises, it also has an out of date USB connector. With how poor it performs over LAN with 1 user, I can't imagine 50 people using it, or even attempting to stream anything off of it at all.

The backup software is lackluster and requires you to install and constantly run an SSDP alternative service rather than interfacing with your computer like everything else does, mandates you expose it as a public device in network, and provides no more functionality than freeware like SaveMe. Anyone with a router has the guest and NAS storage functionality assignable via IP.

Other Thoughts: In the end, I guess the case is nice, but I feel like I seriously wasted my money. This is only worth the money if you use cash as tissue paper. Buy a WD instead, I wish I did.
