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.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Seemless backup, and integration with other Apple products. It's pretty.

Cons: Performance was average. It runs pretty hot.

Other Thoughts: I tried to use it as a NAS for both my Macbook Pro and Windows 7 desktop. I had all my music library and photos on stored on it. I also had a printer hooked up to it. I had quite a bit of trouble with a installation on the Windows machine. Apple's software (Bonjour, I think) kept installing the wrong driver for it (which is pretty funny considering that it was one of those fancy printer that Apple used to sell on their site). My overall experience pretty much reflects what CNET wrote in their review.

1 out of 5 eggsgoogle failure rate on this item

Pros: none

Cons: This hardware item has a massive failure rate. Its strongly advised you google time capsule failure rate before you buy this item. people have collected data on this item and the hardware failure rate gets higher and higher for every year owned. at the 3 year mark was basically a 100% failure rate. I would most definitely not trust this drive for sensitive data.

Other Thoughts: waste of money

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Pretty good wifi coverage. Looks great, blends with other Apple products. Easy to set up with the Apple software, either or Mac or PC.

Cons: runs HOT. Not easy to partition data. No way to throttle traffic.

I've had two, both died after a little over a year. Quirky errors, then finally gave up the ghost, and it all seemed related to heat. Really a lack of ventilation on these units.

Other Thoughts: One of Apple's design failures - it's a great idea, but bad execution, and I've been an Apple fan for years. This device has merit - but not in this application.

1 out of 5 eggsWho ever heard of a 14 month time capsule?

Pros: Looks nice, as all apple products do.

Cons: Died after about 13.5 months.

Other Thoughts: Who ever heard of a time capsule that you have to crack open in less than 2 years?

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 20 months

Pros: Pretty box. Good Wifi coverge.

Cons: The unit died after 20 months. Did some checking on the web and found reports of hundreds of these units dying at around 18 months. It seems they are poorly designed for dissipating heat. After an initial spat of problems Apple “redesigned” the unit by changing the fast hard drive with a slow 5400 rpm drive to reduce the heat output. Apple also agreed to replace a lot of the early units. The later units still have the same problem but Apple does not care. I called their help line and the guy told me “it lasted almost 2 years, that’s pretty good”. Somehow I expected a $300 product to last longer than that. In the end they referred me to a non-Apple company in the area that might be able to help me get the data off the unit, for a large fee. If you do decide to purchase on of these units be sure to frequently back it up, especially once it is older than 18 months.

Other Thoughts: Some how I was expecting more from Apple.
