Thank you for putting the Airport Express problem on the front page right in time when mine died. At least it seems that I am not alone.
Somewhere on the linked page from the Apple discussions there is an interesting note that French site “MacBidoulle” (english version at Hardmac.com) is already looking deeper into the problem and is collecting serial numbers and other information about dead APXes. If you go to Hardmac.com and do a search on “Airport Express” you will find that they report regularly about their progress. There seems to be the suspicion that especially APXes in countries with 220 V or 240 V voltage are affected.
I had roughly the same problem with my first graphite Airport base dying. Apple acknowledged the problem with specific serial numbers at some point and I got a refurbished unit in exchange even after the warranty had expired. I hope that the work at MacBidoulle will lead to a similarly satisfying solution for the owners of dead Airport Express stations.
