Airport Express

im002142jpgI finally received my Airport Express today. Set up was a snap, even with my lackluster BT service. (I’m using the Hermstedt XDSL modem as well, which has also made my life a lot easier.)

The most impressive aspect of the Airport Express is the size, as you can see from the picture. It’s basically the same size as the power adapter for my PowerBook.

Apple has done an excellent job with the Airport Express. Connecting my printer, an HP Laserjet 1010, was a matter of clicks as well, even though it is not listed on the Airport Express compatibility chart. Connecting my stereo was equally as simple.

I purchased a Netgear base station last Christmas and it continually dropped the signal and needed to be restarted. It was also a pain in the neck to set up.

Five stars for the Airport Express- I highly recommend it.


  1. hi jason,

    i am considering purchasing a airport express for use on my windows based machines and would like to share my HP Laserjet 1010 printer over the USB port of the Airport Express.
    Some people I asked have expressed reservations about the printer working on a print server.
    Could you please let me know if you have faced any problems at all using your HP Laserjet 1010 with the airport express?
