Apple’s Time Capsule is one of those pieces of hardware that really gets looked over when it comes to Apple products. I personally have had one for over two years and I absolutely love mine. It has served its purpose and has done a decently good job. This post is mainly to tell you what the Time Capsule does and some of its advantages. I think you will find that after you read this post that the Time Capsule is one of those products that you may find that could be really helpful in your world.
What is the Time Capsule?
There are two main parts of the Time Capsule, storage and WIFI. Let’s talk about storage first. The Time Capsule works with Time Machine on your Mac to back up the data that is on your Mac. It can actually back up any Mac that is on your network as well. The Time Capsule comes in 1 TB and 2TB capacity as far as storage is concerned.
The second thing that the Time Machine does is act as your wireless router for your home or office. It also has a USB port so you can also hook up a wireless printer to your Time Capsule and you can now print wirelessly with any computer on the same network.
So why should you get a Time Capsule?
To me there are a variety of reasons why I think the Time Capsule is a great piece of hardware from Apple. One of the main reasons why I got the Time Capsule in the first place is the fact that I could get a wireless router and storage device in one. Right there I was able to save some money by doing that. And the nice part is that it backs up automatically and I can go back and retrieve anything from my computer that is backed up on the Time Capsule. Another reason why I like it is that since it is a combined router and storage device, my wife can back up her computer as well, and we can access files from each other’s computer on our own computer. Since we run a small business, this has come in very handy. And lastly, if you have Mobile Me, you can access your files from any web browser, iPhone, or iPad. This can be handy to have and will eliminate from you having to get something like Dropbox to do this.
So there you have it. I hope you were able to learn more about the Time Capsule and what it is and its advantages. I personally think it is a good product and it serves a good purpose. I think if you have more than one computer in your home or office, this is definitely a product worth checking out. What do you think? Any of you have had experiences with Time Capsule?
