The previous generation of this device was a unit that plugged directly into a mains socket. Personally, I prefer this redesign. The former generation was awkward to use if you had mains sockets close to the floor, and it tipped over irritatingly when used with an extension lead. It also helps that I won't be using the new Express as a portable device (some people baulk at carrying around yet another power lead).

The AirPort Express is now exactly the same shape and size as an Apple TV. A second (non-Gigabit) Ethernet port and simultaneous dual band have been added, and the maximum number of simultaneous users has been upped from 10 to 50. These changes make the new AirPort Express a much more capable wireless router in its own right.

But what continues to make the Express unique is its ability to AirPlay music from iTunes - or any audio from a Mac running OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion" or later - via analogue. The Apple TV can also stream audio but only via a digital optical output, meaning you'd have to fork out for a DAC if your speakers only have an analogue input. In addition, the Apple TV resamples audio from the CD standard of 44.1 kHz to 48 kHz. Many people won't find the difference noticeable, but others will, especially if they're streaming high-quality lossless audio.

I've connected my Express to a Powerline adapter, set it to bridge mode, and I'm using it to create a new dual band network on the second floor, where my original wireless router's signal is patchy. This way, I've got a much better wireless network on the second floor, a free Ethernet port on the Express for connecting a wired device, a flawless AirPlay connection to my hi-fi, and a USB port for connecting a printer if I should wish. It's worth the price for the AirPlay alone.

I realise that many people will want to know technical details about this item but im not going to be giving that sort of review, as after 12 years of configuring windows networks and being utterly fed up with trying to keep it configured every time windows does an UPDATE or WIPEOUT as I like to call it.

The simple thing with apple is that it does not require you to know as much about code and programming as the people who design the hardware do. I wanted the following:

1: to extend my wireless network without it falling over every other week
2: to share a printer with my network at home which has 3 pc's on it (HP wireless printer)
3: share my Itunes sounds around my house and garden
4: be able to share my hard drive on my network

I ordered several of these little white beauties and can honestly say that I had them up and running within 10 minutes each using the airport utility which is perfectly simple to use.

I am now able to listen to my itunes music and internet radio in each of the 6 rooms and the garden. I share my printer with the 3 pc's and my iphone and have a perfect 100% coverage on my wifi.

I have read some reviews that mention that the express can fall off the network, but I have never had this happen to me in 4 months of owning them.

That said, if you really just want a wifi extender these will work just fine also.

I've used earlier models of the Express and found them to be easy to set up and nearly trouble-free in operation. The current design is a slightly different but effectively the same. In hotels or flats or wherever you have wired broadband, connect it via an ethernet cable (I always travel with one) and bang, you've got wireless access; the Express remembers your prior settings & password,

First off, although I liked the convenience and compactness of the previous models' integrated plug approach, the additional features of this new model more than make up for that.

I am using this in conjunction with an Apple AirPort Extreme base station (AEBS) to extend my wireless networks via gigabit ethernet. This model is much better suited to this task than the previous model, as it has gigabit LAN and WAN ports for different configurations. The AEBS has supported dual band 2.4 and 5 GHz wifi for a couple of years, and the previous AirPort Express model was single band only, so this new model allows me to extend both networks perfectly.

For anyone new to Apple wifi hardware and its configuration, this is a doddle to setup. If you have a Mac or iOS device, the setup utility is built-in. I have Windows desktops and iOS devices, so I can use either - for Windows, you will need to download the Apple AirPort Utility software for Windows from their website.

For first time configuration, simply plug the device into the power and it creates its own network to use for configuration. Discovery is all handled using Apple's Bonjour protocol which (if you aren't aware) means you don't need to do anything fiddly to find the new device. If you have wireless devices (such as a Mac or iOS device, or Windows PC with a wireless adaptor) the AirPort Utility software will see the new device and provide a wizard for configuration. In iOS, go to the wifi settings and it will appear as a separate network - tap the new network to configure the device.

One tip - before first time configuration, physically connect the device the way it will be when it's in your network.
