Ok, I've had one of the old Express's for some time now. I recently moved my desk to the other side of the house. It's about 40 yards away from the modem. The old express wouldn't reach and I couldn't get online on my PS3. I was like, oh ok, so I'll get one of the newer ones with "2x Range". I was told I would notice a BIG difference in range by a friend of mine. I went to connection status(on the PS3) and it still only clocks in at 15%. Yes, the transmit power is at 100%. Did I get a bad express? I did order it off eBay <___<. but it said it was the "n" technology in the Airport Utility when I was setting it up. I also tried using one of my old expresses as an extender, but the internet is still extremely slow.
