Yesterday I received the brand new Airport Express Base Station(3rd generation, MC414Z/A)! The main advantage in contrast to the precessor versions is an additional 100 MBit/s ethernet LAN port. Yes, it is not a 1GBit/s ethernet LAN port! In the first instance, I was somehow disappointed, but I checked the transfer rates with my PC from and to my ‘My Book Live’: 12 MB/s from and 6 MB/s to the My Book Live. That’s OK to me.
A short, but good overview about specific technical specification of the different Airport Express generations can be found in Wikipedia.
All together I’ve got now the following apple products:
1. iPhone 4, 32 GB (MC319DN/A)
2. iPad 2 WiFi + 3G, 64 GB (2nd generation, FC775FD/A)
3. Apple TV 3 (3rd generation, MD199FD/A)
4. Apple TV 2 (2nd generation, MC572FD/A)
5. AirPort extreme base station (5th generation, MD031Z/A)
6. AirPort express station (2nd generation, MB321Z/A)
7. AirPort express base station (3rd generation, MC414Z/A)
8. Apple camera connection kit (MC531ZM/A)
Stay tuned! 😉
