More Airport Express details
July 22, 2004
The good folks at Ars Technica have up an in-depth review of the Airport Express. They’ve given it an 8 out of 10, mostly downgrading it for lack of stereo cables, a music remote, and no ability to shut off the wireless if you’re using it via ethernet just to stream music.
Hmmm… The music streaming stuff is nice, but it’s just frosting for me; apparently other folks see that as much more the main purpose. They did manage to get it to extend a hacked Linksys router, so I’m guessing that means that it’s not liable to bridge to my off-the-shelf DLink.
Which is a pity, but not a deal breaker…
