AirPort Time Capsule Review 2013

AirPort Time Capsule is one of the Apple wireless routers, and allows you to connect different devices to a Wi-Fi network, but this device also has a memory so you can make backups and store all types of files. The new Time Capsule has a new design and new technology that make it better than its previous version.

Technical specifications of AirPort Time Capsule

Time Capsule can accommodate up to 50 users and can manage and configure iOS 5 or later and Mac OS X Lion or later. To connect wirelessly printers is necessary to have OS X 10.2.7 or later or Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8. This also applies to share hard drives, but in this case it is necessary OS X 10.4.8 or version latest operating system. Backups with Time Machine can only be done from a Mac, and that computer must have OS X 10.5.7 or later.

The new design and technology Time Capsule

AirPort Time Capsule now has a tower. Apple has thought of doing higher for two reasons: its height allows the apparatus to have more antennas and thereby improves the Wi-Fi signal, but the height also allows the components inside the unit are distributed so that it takes up less space on the desktop, Time Capsule measures just 9.8 centimeters at the base and has a height of 16.8 centimeters.

This router Apple has Beamforming technology, which means that detects whether a device that can connect to your Wi-Fi network and directs the signal to where is the device or apparatus, so as to transmit and receive the signal better.

Functions as backup disk and more

Time Capsule has a storage capacity of 2 or 3TB, which means that he can make backups with several of your computers, so if we use Time Machine, is done automatically.

2 or 3TB of memory is sufficient to support a lot of information, and is very likely to have enough space for other file types on the device, whether images, music, videos, etc.

Everything that previously had but better

This device gives us the same possibilities offered us their previous version. This means that we can connect iOS devices monitor the network and even from some of those devices. Through Time Capsule we can connect to other electronic devices such as printers, hard drives or other sound equipment. In addition still it is transmitting on two frequencies: 2.4 and 5 GHz.

The difference is that now the system works faster, because, tells us Apple, the new standard 802.11ac allows you to transfer data three times faster than it did the previous model.

Time Capsule 2TB hard drive is priced at $ 299, and 3TB memory configuration costs $ 399.

This could take some of the device attractive because many users do not need all the features and capabilities of this device. For example, those who just want to make a backup of your information, could find a 3TB hard drive in about $ 100 and that would have plenty of room to back up your data.

Definitely for those who want to wirelessly connect various devices, and also have, Time Capsule (English) automatic backups of your Macs is a great option.
