Looks like a great deal especially if you Amazon doesn't collect taxes for your location.

Considering Amazon is usually tax free--It looks like a good deal.

I have had issues with SlingBox on mine--so I am using my Buffalo till I have time to sort it out.

I ordered one, and for a reason undiscernable to me, I got a $8.40 promo
applied to the price, so I'm getting the Airport Extreme 802.11n for $159.58
with free shipping and no sales tax!

Well, I got $20 off including the promo, plus no sales tax or shipping costs
on a $179 product. It's tough to find bargains on Apple peripherals since
they control their pricing so tightly, unless you buy a refurb or an older product.
That was enough to sway me into getting it sooner than later.

Intel Mac users beware!, April 12, 2007
By Gregory Glockner (San Francisco, CA United States) - See all my reviews

Intel Macs running the current version of Mac OS X (10.4.9) are incompatible with this router. The configuration page does not render properly on any of my three Macs, regardless of whether they use a wired or wireless connection. And with the latest AirPort firmware on the MacBook, the WPA settings cause a system crash (kernel panic).

D-Link technical support was no help. I sent them an email with a screen shot from Safari and Firefox, and they responded: "You shoudl [sic] be able to do it with safari. Can you try it in another environment?" So they didn't properly answer my question, and they never responded to my two follow-up emails. Zero stars for tech support!

The reason I'm giving this product two stars is that it did work properly with my Windows computers. But Intel Mac users should look elsewhere. I did. "

Given that I have a MacPro, that doesn't sound very appealing.
