    As title says I just purchased a time capsule off of ebay.

    Final price was $365...I was thinking I was going to walk away with it for only $270, but then I got into bidding war with some guy in the last 10 minutes......anyway

    It's model number is: mb765LL/A

    What's the difference between the above model number and MB277LL/A?

    The latest ones can do simultaneous BG & N while the older ones don't do simul.

    The older ones if u set to do BG and N u will cap out at 170Mbps as opposed to the latest ones that cap at 300Mbps.

    This was what I was getting on my setup, don't know if they could go higher.

    It would appear you bought the newer generation model with the simultaneous dual-band.

    And that's still pretty much a good price.

    I doubt the seller was shill bidding.

    can you use the TC router as just a storage drive and not do the backing up thing on these things?
