    Hello!

    My Time Capsule (500 GB) just died today, suddenly, and I am not savvy enough to change the Power Supply myself.

    Now I am thinking of buying an Airport Extreme and plugging in an external Hard Drive. But I was just wondering, does the Airport Extreme have the same life span of the TC (which I read on MR, is 18 to 20 months)? Or does it last longer?

    This will help me decide whether or not to get another TC or a AE.

    Thanks!

    If you're wondering why I am buying another Apple router that is known to die, it's because i use Air Play and I have two Airport Expresses still alive.
