I’ve had an Airport Express for years and have several drives connected to it. I’ve been quite satisfied and can’t imagine why Apple would give up on a good product like that. I’ll keep my Airport till it stops working.

That’s because you don’t know about greater speeds (AC) and more range. The only good thing about their routers was the line out jack. Other than that, they were a complete waste of cash.

You must not really know much about routers. They had one of the best router is on the market. They did do AC and more. It’s unfortunate That Apple is stepping out of the router business. They really had one of the best easiest routers to set up and it was really secure. Rarely ever needed to be restarted. RIP apple airport devices

So for you a great router is one that doesn’t require a restart, it doesn’t matter that the range or options (like IPv6 and other features that are standard nowadays) in the firmware are extremely limited.. or if it barely has a working AC bandwidth with anything that isn’t an Apple device. Oh and I guess you’re completely fine with having obsolete hardware from 2013. Yep, typical Apple customer. Let me guess, the new iPad that’s like cardboard is also a great device, right?

You, my dear sir, have absolutely no clue what you’re talking about. Get informed before venting your colored opinion.

You really have no idea about Apple routers or routers in general. If you’re using those points which are using wrong to compare Apple to the rest of the router market, you are an imbecile. Good luck with that buddy

So your well educated “debate” points are actually ad hominem exemplay behavior. And mine are crap, because range, transmit power and IPv6 aren’t decent things to ask for in 2018. Yep, typical Apple users. BTW, I’ve been modding and recovering routers with custom firmware and hardware mods for more than 15 years, but you definitely know better, indeed. Please, swear at me some more, show me your superiority and endless knowledge about that elite 2013 hardware.

You must be a very lonely individual the way that you communicate. Like a program and you still have no idea about routers. I still have no idea about Apple. Yes, you are still in imbecile in my eyes. Just because you think you’re smart does not mean you are Bucko

Paulie strikes again with that ad hominem and overall superiority. Actual arguments are still MIA, but who cares about that when you can just throw a tantrum, such a suitable thing wheon one’s named like a toddler. Let us all bow to him.
