Cons

Only streams music from iTunes

Can only adjust settings with the AirPort Admin Utility. Which runs only on Windows XP at least SP2, Windows Vista, and on the Mac (I am not sure which version).

Expensive, but hey you probably bought a mac with this too

I wish I could vote up the "Only streams music from iTunes" 10 times. Apple's proprietary game is very annoying. What if I want to stream Internet radio to my stereo? Apple says no. What about if I want to use Winamp instead of iTunes? Apple says no.
