    I've got both and I only need one. They both give good reception and I do not need all the extra ethernet ports, neither do I need to plug external speakers in.

    I was wondering is the Extreme going to have a better aerial as it's a lot bigger, or is the express just as good due to improved technology.

    Express. Less likely to have power supply issues.

    Does the first gen extreme have simultaneous dual-band capability? If not, the 2nd gen express does, and this has been a useful feature to me -- set up the 2.4 GHz band for my wife's old XP laptop, and the faster 5 GHz band for my Macs.
