    and by safe I mean, are they going to crap out in 18 months? Was looking at a new Airport Extreme, but might just go for a refurb time capsule.

    Edit: Apologies for horrendous grammatical error in the title

    I recommend using an external HD like WD My Passport for Mac ... Time Capsule seems like a waste ... just my opinion

    The time capsule transfer speeds for me were ridiculously slow, sold it and picked up an AEBS and a FW800 2TB WD MyBook, wayyyyyy faster. I did want the smaller form factor but speed was higher on my list being that I share it between 5 computers. As well as less stress thinking your entire wireless network and storage could crap out at the same time.
