5 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed

Pros: It works on my Aspire 3680 running triple booting Vista, Linux Mint and Snow Leopard. The fact that it would work on OSX was the main reason I bought it.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: small
cheap
works
wps button
activity LED
802.11d for other countrys

Cons: nowhere to put USB cap when it is removed

Other Thoughts: I didn't use the included install CD, I Plugged it in to windows 8.1 with an internet connection and it installed quickly and worked without problems.

It gets warm after use, I saw transfer speeds of 7.8 - 8 MB/s from my intel I5 PC <->Thecus raid.

it is a single band wireless N.

ease of use is.. perfect almost as easy as a wire, or actually maybe easier.

3 out of 5 eggsN but only 2.4g not 5ghz

Pros: small, cheap, installed in win7 by downloading windows update drivers automatically (via existing wired connection), although windows whq drivers from 2010. slightly newer drivers from trendnet, even newer drivers from realtek

Cons: despite being an "N" class adapter, it only does 2.4ghz "N" and not the 5ghz "N". I should have researched more before buying, as I assumed it supported 5ghz.but got on sale for decently cheap price so will keep anyway.

Other Thoughts: small profile, sticks out maybe less than an inch of the usb port. moderately bright blue light flashes with activity makes it easy to see when in use.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Anonymous,

I’m sorry this didn't work as expected. TRENDnet does have N600 or N900 dual band usb adapters if those are what you are looking for. Please feel free to email me directly at adrian@trendnet.com with "Newegg TEW-648UB Review" in the subject line and I will be able to assist you immediately.

Warm Regards,

Adrian

1 out of 5 eggsNot Compatible with Windows 8?

Pros: Less than $10

Cons: Doesn't work with Windows 8
NewEgg doesn't list OS compatibility for this device.

Other Thoughts: I downloaded the latest driver from TrendNet, but Windows 8 still says "Incompatible Program Detected." Newegg's product listing doesn't list OS compatibility, but this adapter's packaging clearly doesn't list anything newer than Windows 7. Shame on NewEgg for misleading customers.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Valued Customer,

Our apologies for this adapter not working as promised. On our website via this link, http://www.trendnet.com/products/proddetail.asp?prod=190_TEW-648UB#tabs-solution02, it doesn’t specify what OS are supported. Unfortunately, it’s not on Newegg and we will work with Newegg to change. Please email me directly at adrian@trendnet.com with “Newegg TEW-648UB” in the subject line and I will contact you immediately to provide a solution. I look forward to your reply and hope to regain your trust in TRENDnet.

Warmest regards,

Adrian

3 out of 5 eggsNot bad, but the bundled software sucks

Pros: It works...

Cons: But only works when the bundled software is installed. If you remove the software, you remove the driver for the device. Further, the software stops my computer (Windows 7 32bit) from automatically connecting to a wifi network on startup. Not entirely sure why.

Other Thoughts: Regardless, if you can find a way around the annoying program, such as disabling it from starting when windows powers up, then you shouldn't have any issues with this device.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi AnonRoy,

I apologize for the unpleasant experience using the driver. If applicable, I would recommend to upgrade to the latest driver via the following link, http://www.trendnet.com/support/supportdetail.asp?prod=195_TEW-648UBM#tabs-solution01. Meanwhile, please ensure that the driver does automatically build a wi-fi profile after a connection is up and running to a wireless network. If it fails then it might explain why it has happened. Please email me at adrian@trendnet.com with “Newegg TEW-648ub” in the subject and I will contact you to assist immediately. I look forward to your reply and hope to restore your faith in TRENDnet.

Warmest regards,

Adrian

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very convenient, it's small so it doesn't take up space

Cons: Does not transfer speed as fast as it says, consistently lag and disconnect while in the middle of work, traded in for another and it still has the same problems.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello TRENDnet Customer,

We apologize for this product not being able to work as promised. I would like to kindly suggest to uninstall the TEW-648UB driver and re-install it. Meanwhile, please uninstall unused wi-fi drivers if applicable. A reboot of your computer is strongly recommended after you have done all these. If it still doesn’t help please email me at adrian@trendnet.com with “Newegg TEW-684ub” in the subject line and I will contact you immediately to help. I look forward to your reply soon and restoring your faith in TRENDnet.

Warmest regards,

Adrian
