This listing is for the NEW Latest Generation Apple Time Capsule model A1470 (ME177LL/A) released by Apple in June 2013, that has been professionally upgraded to 5tb. The device has a complimentary 1 year warranty by Retailproof. It has more powerful newer generation wireless chipset, up to 3x times faster Wi-Fi and 25% better range, and Simultaneous Dual-Band and Guest Network features.
This Time Capsule has even greater performance and range (compared to 4th generation A1409 model) thanks to more transmit power and the improved sensitivity afforded by newer generation chipset.
It also features improvements in antenna design that give it up to 50 percent better Wi-Fi performance than with the 4th generation Time Capsule (A1409 model).
This model offers simultaneous 802.11ac dual-band operation to allow older devices to use the slower wireless speeds without affecting the overall performance of devices that can use the higher 802.11ac speeds. Also it features Guest Networking which allows guests to sign on with a different password to ensure your private network is kept private.
Time Capsule is a revolutionary backup device that works wirelessly with Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard or later. It automatically backs up everything, so you never have to worry about losing your important files.
Backing up is something we all know we should do, but often don't. And while disaster is a great motivator, now it doesn't have to be. Because with Time Capsule, the nagging need to back up has been replaced by automatic, constant protection. And even better, it all happens wirelessly, saving everything important, including your sanity.
AirPort Time Capsule is designed to partner seamlessly with Time Machine in OS X Leopard or later to protect your data. They work together smartly so that after the initial backup, only the files you’ve changed are backed up — automatically, wirelessly, and in the background. Since Time Machine continuously makes a copy of everything on your Mac — and saves multiple versions — you can easily access and restore previous versions of a single file, a folder, or even your entire Mac. And with an all-new design and ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi, backing up to AirPort Time Capsule is up to 50 percent faster than before.
Have multiple Mac computers in your home or office? AirPort Time Capsule can back up and store files for each Mac on your wireless network. No longer do you have to attach an external drive to each Mac every time you want to back up. AirPort Time Capsule spares you the work. Your computers are always backed up — automatically and wirelessly
Time Capsule is your one place for backing up everything. Its massive 5tb hard drive gives you all the capacity and safety you need. So whether you have 250 songs or 250,000 songs to back up, room is the last thing you'll run out of.
More than just a wireless hard drive, AirPort Time Capsule is also a full-featured Wi‑Fi base station with the latest three-stream 802.11ac technology. Now you can reach data rates of up to 1.3 Gbps3 — triple the previous 802.11n standard. Which means up to three times faster Wi‑Fi.4 You also get double the channel bandwidth, with 80MHz-wide channels providing more room for more data to flow faster than ever. And if you have 802.11a/b/g/n devices, AirPort Time Capsule maximizes that connection as well. What you do with all that extra speed is up to you.
AirPort Time Capsule features simultaneous dual-band 802.11ac Wi‑Fi. That means it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time. So no matter which band your wireless devices use, they’ll automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest possible performance.
With 802.11ac technology comes the intelligent, powerful beamforming antenna array. Most base station antennas emit an equal and constant Wi‑Fi signal in all directions. But the beamforming antenna array is smarter — it knows where an 802.11ac device is on the network. Then AirPort Time Capsule targets its signal to that device. So your Wi‑Fi signal is stronger, clearer, and faster.
With the guest networking feature, you can set up a separate Wi‑Fi network just for guests. Use a different password or no password at all. A guest network allows access only to the Internet, so your primary network — including any external hard drive, printer, or other LAN-attached device — remains secure.
Once your network is set up, AirPort Utility for iOS and OS X lets you manage and monitor it from your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac. Your AirPort Time Capsule — along with other AirPort base stations you have connected — appears graphically onscreen, so you can see your settings at a glance, make changes, apply updates, and more.
The included USB port is great for sharing a printer throughout your wireless network. Time Capsule and the Bonjour networking technology let everyone in the house or office – Mac and PC users alike – take advantage of one centrally located printer. And if you want to share both a printer and an additional hard drive, you can. Just connect a USB hub to Time Capsule. Whatever the combination, Time Capsule divides and conquers.
Time Capsule with Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard or later is the ideal backup solution. But that doesn't mean Mac OS X Tiger, Windows XP, and Windows Vista users can't enjoy the benefits of Time Capsule, too. Because Time Capsule mounts as a wireless hard drive, Tiger and Windows users simply access Time Capsule directly from the wireless network for exchanging and storing files quickly and easily.
