    Does anyone have the new Time Capsule 3TB? I was thinking of getting that to replace my Netgear N900 N router or get the new Netgear Nighthawk but haven't made up my mind yet. Was wondering if anyone had one and give me their opinion on it. I plan to get a new one from eBay since its cheaper than from Apple Store.

    I have the new TC 3TB as the main network base station, and new Extreme on the other end of the house extending the network. They work wonderfully and give a good network for our iPads we use through the house. We leave our rMBPs in our office. I highly recommend the new TC and Extreme units.

    I have the new tower version in the 2TB model and I have been very happy with it. Did you have any specific questions about it?

    You might look at a refurb direct from Apple for $60 off the new price. Check here.

    The Nighthawk is a great router in terms of performance, but the Time Capsule will definitely cream it in terms of simplicity. I have no issues with any of my AirPort networks.

    How does the new extreme/time capsules compare to the 2nd gen? I live in a 4 floor townhouse and the current extreme is not the 1st floor. I am not getting much of a signal on the 4th floor.

    Do you think the new extreme will be better?
