Apple Time Capsule 3TB ME182LL/A
Sharing its sleek and stylish design with the new AirPort Extreme Base Station, the Apple AirPort Time Capsule - now in its 5th generation - also supports the 802.11ac standard. In fact, the two are pretty much identical in terms of appearance and performance, save for the internal storage capabilities of Time Capsule, which comes in 2TB or 3TB options. Like with the Extreme Base Station, there are very few options in terms of customization, nor are there more advanced features like media streaming. Of course, the Time Capsule is also not well suited to non-Macs due to its inherent design. However, for Mac users looking for an excellent backup/file server, the Time Capsule offers fast and stable performance (up to 254Mbps throughput). There's no real reason to upgrade from a previous Time Capsule device unless you're after the 802.11ac support, but overall, the 5th generation Apple AirPort Time Capsule is a great router and worth the high price for those seeking the functionality it provides.
