What I am impressed with is that the audio playback does not have any kind of delay over the network. You can verify this as is possible to play itunes through multiple speakers, so if you have the computer speakers and airport express both sending out sound, the output is perfectly in sync. I'm surprised since most digital equipment tends to have some inherent delay, so well done Apple!

If you've bought yours second hand like I did, make sure you update the firmware (7.4.1 at time of writing) as I did have a few problems when it was on 7.3.2. Also you may want to use the Manual setup option to set the IP address as it tried to grab the same IP my PC was using, so caused a conflict on the network.

One other thing, if you plan having this in the kitchen next to the microwave, when the microwave is on it will interrupt the signal enough to lose connectivity. So if you can place it a good distance away.

This is a clever multifunctional device. It can be used to extend your existing 'n' network, it can be connected via a USB port to allow wireless printing from all your computers around the house, and it can stream music from i-tunes when connected to powered speakers.

Unlike other reviewers, I had no problems setting this up, or updating the hardware. In my installation it's wirelessly linked to an Apple Time Capsule which is used the the 'n' base station - linked by cable to a router. The AP Express is by my printer and provides access to network printing. It's also linked to a stereo system and will play i-tunes tracks from any computer on my normal stereo.

If you travel this an excellent piece of kit. If your hotel has broadband but no wireless network you can easily take the AP Express with you and set up a network. I do this a lot and because the AP Express is so small it's not a problem taking it.

The downside - well like at Apple wireless solutions there's no modem built in so you need two boxes rather than one. With the Express I can forgive this - it is just so small. I'm feel more strongly that Time Capsule and AirPort Extreme should feature in built modems.

At £65 this device is good value and getting it to work - in the fairly complex way I've set it up - was easy.

Just got one and had no probs setting it up with vista. Hardwired it with ethernet cable first to do the set up then unplugged the cable. Just using it for airtunes and it sounds great. Very impressed, might well get another to add sound to another room too. Have tried it in my attic room and it found the network and started streaming within 60 seconds!!!

I spent hours trying to set up an Edimax extender (EW-7416APN) to extend the reach of my Netgear DG834GT router for our Mac laptops. Eventually gave up and returned it to Amazon (who refunded without question).

I bought the AE instead (recognising I'd have to connect it with an Ethernet cable to the router but trusting that an Apple product should be easier to install). I plugged it in and opened Airport Utility, and it was working within five minutes. It does just what I wanted and more: I can connect to either the Netgear or the AE network, depending on which is stronger in the particular part of the house - though so far the AE seems stronger everywhere and extends the useable range enormously.

After my experience with the Edimax, I researched thoroughly beforehand how to set this up, most of which time was wasted because it proved so easy. But since the instructions aren't that clear as to how to (or even whether you can) set the AE up where you have an existing wireless router and want to use the AE to extend the range by providing an extra network, here is how you do it:

* install Airport utility from CD;
* if your router has a list of MAC numbers permitted to connect to it, go into its set-up page and add that of the AE. Number is on AE;
* connect AE to router with Ethernet cable;
* plug in AE to mains;
* open Airport utility. It will find the AE and ask you if you want to use that;
* click Manual set-up;
* I found most of the settings were already done for me. The important ones are to set it to "Connect using Ethernet" and "Connection Sharing Off (Bridge Mode)" (on the Internet tab) and "Create a wireless network" (on the Airport - Wireless tab);
* set up security settings to match those on your router.

This is a brilliant concept with a well executed product design. However, there are some problems.

I love being able to play my music wirelessly around the house, it's both novel and incredibly practical. Whilst this should be a simple install and play job, it isn't. Whilst the configuration is harmless, the provided documentation is inadequate and a basic knowledge of wireless networking is required. Not a problem for me.

The idea behind the product is that I should be able to listen to my music wirelessly around the home without interruption. Not the case. The status light reliably starts flashing orange to highlight connectivity issues during regular use. This requires the simple turning off and on of the device to reboot, but when the idea is that you can install this behind a dresser or desk then forget about it, then the concept fails. You shouldn't have to constantly attend to it whilst in use.

No other wi-fi devices in the house have these issues, so it's not the home network.
