Being made by Apple, it isn't cheap. But, being made by Apple, it's got features and simplicity that only an Apple product can give:
- Printer server: it's got a USB port where you can plug in your printer and share it in the network!
- Wireless sound streaming: plug in a speaker set and you can play music wirelessly via iTunes!
- Neat case: a very small box that looks a lot like the charger of a Macbook, but slightly larger.
- Best of all: it was totally easy to set up. It practically installed itself, after I plugged in the broadband wire. The only thing that slowed me down was that I needed to connect Data's wifi (her Windows XP laptop has old WEP capability, which limited our password options to five ASCII characters -- hope your nose didn't bleed on all that mumbo).
Having a wireless home is cool! ;-)
PS. I saw a review of a new non-Apple router that allows USB-printer sharing too, plus sharing of external USB drives! I heard that Apple's new BaseStation may have this ability too. Nice!
