    Hi, I'm wanting to buy a 2TB Time Capsule to use as a wireless hard drive, but I've been put off by reports and reviews stating that Time Capsules have lasted short periods, with 18 month life-spans being mentioned quite often.

    Has anyone owned or had experience with a Time Capsule? I'm just reluctant to part with the £360+ if it's only going to last a year or so. Does anyone also have any recommended alternatives to using a Time Capsule?

    Thanks for any help.

    An Airport Extreme and an external hard drive. Work just fine.

    Also, might be worth doing a search before posting. There are 6 threads on the Time Capsule, on the front page alone.
