    Is the new AC Airport Extreme like the 5th gen before it?
    When I sit in the same room and it's quiet you can hear every packet (I have really good high freq hearing - sue me).
    I want to upgrade just to end the noise!
    FYI, my 1st gen N Airport Express is silent.

    Likely a defective part, either a faulty fan or maybe a bad power supply.

    Finally installed the new ac Airport Extreme and it is very quiet. :)

    Well, defective or not, the 5th gen is going to be my nephew's Xmas present, and since he's still on a linksys-g the speed bump should be enough to help him Facetime with video.
