First post (pls be gentle!)

Having owned both, I much prefer the E4200 to be honest.

In particular the Cisco can stream media with ease to my mac/ipad and Windoze laptop from usb nas, however the Airport struggled with this.

On a minor cosmetic point, the combo power/status light on the Airport is very bright if locating in a cabinet - particularly off putting beneath a tv. Sure a piece of tape resolves, but not much of a solution when you DO actually need to see the routers status.

I don't like Apple's GUI mgt tool either - you can't manage the Airport from an iPad which is ridiculous. The Cisco has a web interface and can therefore be managed from any device on my network.
