So I ordered a Refurbished 500GB Simultaneous Dual-Band Time Capsule off the Apple Refurb Store the last week of September. I got it last Thursday and installed it. I thought it was great... that was until I actually began using it. In my apartment, my roommates play Xbox 360. We have it hard wired directly to the Time Capsule and they were lagging out of Halo3 ODST like mad. I was also having trouble with my Macbook Pro getting a decent signal in my bedroom not 30 feet away. It was also cutting the network bandwidth on our already slow Metrocast Cable Internet in half (Getting 5mbps instead of 10mbps and causing high latency from an average of 60 hard wired to about 180ms at the lowest going through the TC.) On top of this, I'm now seeing a lot of the people saying that their TCs failed after 18 months. Well, that all convinced me to return it. I talked with Apple and tried to get it fixed and did a hard reset on it. Didn't help. Getting a full refund. Sad that I paid $223 for a hard drive and router that is worse than the 2 year old Buffalo that struggles with the traffic we have with the 4 laptops, 1 desktop, 2 Xbox 360s, 2 DS's 1 iPod Touch, and my phone. The Time Capsule was choking with very little traffic. I ended up ordering a Netgear WNDR3700. It seems to have really good reviews and all the features that I was looking for (Wireless N, Gigabit ports, Sim Dual Band). I guess I'll have to go back to my NAS drive for Time Machine, but that has been working just fine for a year now. No questions from me really, just wanted to give my experience and maybe hear a little feedback from other Time Capsule users. I do wonder if I have a defective (still defective since it's a refurb) Time Capsule.
