Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Backing up is something we all know we should do, but often don't. And while disaster is a great motivator, now it doesn't have to be. Because with the Apple Time Capsule, the nagging need to back up has been replaced by automatic, constant protection. And even better, it all happens wirelessly. Time Capsule includes a wireless hard drive designed to work with Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard. Just set Time Capsule as the designated backup drive for Time Machine, and that's it.

This updated version of Time Capsule features a 1 TB hard drive and includes several new features. It now operates in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands simultaneously to ensure top performance for all your devices, and it provides a new Guest Networking option for easy Internet sharing. It also enables you to access your Time Capsule's hard drive over the Internet via a MobileMe account.

The dual-band Time Capsule fits the needs of all your Wi-Fi-enabled devices.
New Features
Some Wi-Fi devices use the 2.4GHz wireless band, including iPhone, iPod touch, and devices using 802.11b/g. Other devices can use either 2.4 GHz or the higher-speed 5 GHz band, such as the latest 802.11n-based Mac computers and Apple TV. Instead of choosing one of the bands, Time Capsule now operates simultaneously on both bands, and your multiband devices automatically use the best available band. This means all your Wi-Fi devices get the fastest possible wireless performance and the best possible range.

And with this updated Time Capsule, it's easier than ever to allow guests to use your Internet connection without sharing your password or giving them access to the rest of your network. Simply enable the new Guest Networking feature using the AirPort Utility application and create a separate Wi-Fi network just for your friends. You can set up this guest network with a different password or with none at all. Your primary network--including your printer, attached drives, or other devices--remains secure.

If you're away from home and need a file on your Time Capsule back at home, you can now access all the files on your Time Capsule drive over the Internet. Simply register your Time Capsule with a MobileMe account (subscription required), and its drive appears in the Finder sidebar of your Mac just like any other attached drive.

Enjoy seamless, wireless backups from your Mac running Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard.
Continuous Backup
This Apple Time Capsule includes a 500 GB hard drive that's designed to work with Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard. Just set Time Capsule as the designated backup drive for Time Machine, and that's it. Depending on how much data you have, your initial backup with Time Capsule could take overnight or longer. After it completes, only changed files are backed up--automatically, wirelessly, and in the background. If you have multiple Mac computers in your house, Time Capsule can back up and store files for each Leopard-based Mac on your wireless network without having to attach an external drive to each Mac every time you want to back up.

Time Capsule with Time Machine in Leopard is the ideal backup solution. But that doesn't mean Tiger, Windows XP, and Windows Vista users can't enjoy the benefits of Time Capsule, too. Because Time Capsule mounts as a wireless hard drive, Tiger and Windows users simply access Time Capsule directly from the wireless network for exchanging and storing files quickly and easily.

Time Capsule works seamlessly and wirelessly with all your Wi-Fi devices. In fact, it's an incredibly easy way for up to 50 users to share a single broadband Internet connection and USB printer without messy cables. And you don't have to worry about a difficult network setup. Time Capsule uses the Bonjour technology in Mac OS X to allow AirPort-equipped Mac computers running Mac OS X to find each other with no effort on your part--they discover each other just by virtue of being connected to the network.

Computers are only part of the wireless story. If you're an Apple TV owner, you can easily integrate it into your Time Capsule network and enjoy the fastest possible connection for syncing with your computer's iTunes library and streaming to your widescreen TV. And if you use an iPhone or an iPod touch, they'll connect to your Time Capsule network to let you surf the web and more. iPhone automatically switches from the cellular network to your Wi-Fi network as soon as you walk in the front door of your home.

Time Capsule works effortlessly with any computer that uses Wi-Fi standards, whether it's a Mac or whether it's a Dell, HP, IBM, or any other Windows-based PC. That's because Time Capsule is based on a draft 802.11n specification and is compatible with the earlier 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g specifications.

Print Command Central
The included USB port is great for sharing a printer throughout your wireless network. Time Capsule and the Bonjour networking technology let everyone in the house or office--Mac and PC users alike--take advantage of one centrally located printer. And if you want to share both a printer and an additional hard drive, you can. Just connect a USB hub to Time Capsule.

At times, it's been too slow to even use for Time Machine.
Typical Apple ease of use, with all configuration done by a very intuitive GUI application.

I've owned the Apple Time Capsule 1TB model for several months now.


1. Very large 1TB hard drive
2. Very fast WiFi connections
3. Easily sets up with your network (what Mac product doesn't?)
4. Much faster on my DSL network than the DSL wireless router I had previously connected


1. Extremely SLOW data transfer. I'm not exaggerating when I say it took 15hrs to backup a wired connection with about 250gb of data to transfer...... wireless backup of that amount of data wasn't even reasonable, it was going to be several days.

2. I had wanted to use it for my iTunes library. To share my library on several devices when my Macbook was not available. Turns out the transfer speed is too slow for this purpose and I had to scratch that idea.

3. At times, it's been too slow to even use for Time Machine. The problem lies with the hard drive it seems since the wireless connection is extremely fast. Maybe there is some issue with the way the Time Capsule communicates with it's hard drive? I don't know, I only know it's painfully slow.

lf this can only be used as a wireless network hub and painfully slow backups, then there are better options out there. If Apple can somehow get this thing to work as advertised, then it might be worth a look. The way it is now... NOT RECOMMENDED!

Set up was a breeze, It replaced a D-Link 655R with no problems.
Works on my multi platform network: PC with Ethernet cable, MackBook with 802.11n, PS3, Wii, iphone1g, iphone3g,and Canon wireless printer/scanner on 802.11g network.
Dual wireless antennas, keeps network running at top speeds with outstanding range! (for the first time ever my MacBook's internet reached speeds well over 20Mbps on Wi-Fi)
1TB storage works great for both my PC and Mac
The networked USB actually works! Unlike my D-link that needed special software that only was compatible with PC and not mac?
It does runs warm (i only checked because of other reviews) just sitting there (although i don't thinks its much hotter than my D-Link; i never really paid attention); It runs hot when Time Machine is doing its initial back up (this did make me a bit nervous).
There are a few anomalies with the networked USB, when I plug in my external hard drive it will only read the Mac(FAT32) partition, and not the PC(NTFS) partition? (although my PC will only read my PC partition and not the Mac partition; my MacBook reads them both)
Network settings are not as flexible as an experienced network administrator may like.
A bit on the pricey side, (thanks Amazon for the $45 i saved over apple store)
Its great if your making a complete switch to Mac, or if you are looking for a true dual wireless, NAS, and print server, all in one slick device; and have the money.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Jonathan Birge TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 4, 2009
This product is basically three products: an airport extreme wireless router, a networked drive, and finally, with Leopard, a networked backup system. Overall, it's a very good product, but there are some serious limitation one should be aware of.

As a router, it is fantastic. Typical Apple ease of use, with all configuration done by a very intuitive GUI application.

Unfortunately, it's not a great network drive. The drive appears to be internally connected using a very slow USB connection. You will find that even with a computer connected via Gb/s ethernet, transfer speeds will be limited to around 5-6 MB/s, tops. If you connect two Macs via fast ethernet, you can often get over 40 MB/s transfer speeds, so this is a rather large disappointment, especially for a device which will be getting a lot of use if you use Time Machine.

Time Machine is great in theory, but has a few issues. First, it is a file-based differential backup. That means if even a single bit of a 1 GB file is changed, the ENTIRE file gets backed up. Not only does this take a lot of time, it quickly depletes your backup drive because the same data is added to the disk every regular backup. To get around this, you have to explicitly exclude backing up such files. Good candidates for exclusion are Mail and iDisk caches, as well as virtual machine disk images.

There have also been numerous reports of Time Machine backups being susceptible to corruption. I've experienced this once, myself, after a backup was cancelled, so I can vouch that it happens. However, the problems can often be fixed by deleting the last backup. The next backup will take a long time as the computer must scan the full disk again, but the backups then continue on normally after that.

I had the first-gen Time Capsule and it worked fairly flawlessly. The two main features I was wanting with this TC were the dual band wireless broadcasting and the guest account configuration. As an iPhone user, I liked the fact that this TC could broadcast the faster wireless-N signal to the appropriate devices and I could still connect my iPhone using the wireless-G signal. Both features work great and are very easy to set up.
