One of the best purchases I've made in a while is my new Apple Time Capsule. After using this thing for a couple of hours, I regret not getting it sooner. I've had Century Link's 40 Mbps Internet for a few months now. The devices that I had plugged into my Actiontec Q1000 router were able to take advantage of those speeds. I had DirecTV, AppleTV, and I ran a 50ft Cat6 ethernet cable to a convenient location if I ever wanted/needed to be hard-lined in, but my wireless devices (iPad, laptops) were only able to get between 12-18 Mbps speeds. Respectable, but not really taking advantage of the high-speeds that have been paying for. My wireless home security cameras have always had about a 3 second delay when viewing them on my iPad. Now, with the Time Capsule, having the ability to use the 5GHz band, those devices are now realizing the same speeds as if they were hard-lined in with ethernet!
