Apple Time Capsule (1TB) Review
The good: Clean design; good deal for Draft-N router and 500GB or 1TB of storage; low maintenance data backup for Mac users; extensibility via USB port.
The bad: Only average networking performance; few advanced storage features beyond backup capabilities, and those only for Mac users.
The bottom line: Apple's hybrid 802.11n wireless router/networked hard drive offers some powerful data backup features for Mac owners, as well as Apple's typical pleasing design. Windows users and anyone who demands speed from their 802.11n network will be disappointed.
