I looked at that option as well. The reason I didn't pull the trigger is because you lose a lot of the advanced options other routers offer. (ie. DHCP Reservations)

With that being said, not everyone needs the advanced options, and if you have a small network in your home, then you could easily be happy with Apple's offering. If you need to control your network more tightly, as I do, then it may not be an option.

The way I researched it was simply doing a Google search for reviews of the Airport Extreme. Many of the tech sites offer an alternative which may help with your selection.

You should base your choice on your specific needs and environment.

Just my 2 cents.
