I work for a construction company and we have a job trailer that needed a wireless internet connection. Well, being an Apple fan and IT guy by default at my company I selected an AirPort Express (among other things, Windows laptop, wireless printer with AirPrint, etc) as I've had nothing but a good experience with my AirPort Extreme at home. Setup was completely painless and I also recommend the TotalMount if you need to put an Express out of the way. It comes with hardware for any type of mounting situation and is extremely affordable.

I love the new Express. It's very good. I have it as the main router for my home. All concrete walls, two stories and I still get a signal outside in the yard even tho the Express is on the 2nd floor (American 2nd for Brits) dead center of the house and I am 13 feet from house (4 meters for Brits)

I'm a rolling stone.
Agree, they are great devices, I actually own a first generation and use it to beam Audio to my Yamaha AV reviver.
I do prefer the earlier plugin model without the need for an extra cable, shame Apple changed this, but it's still a great and convenient little device.
