1 out of 5 eggs Do not buy! 10/10/2013

This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-805UB AC1200 Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter

Pros:

USB 3.0

Cons:

I got this along with a new D-Link AC router and a cheaper wireless N rosewill adapter. Everything worked great except for this Trendnet ac adapter.

The software included is trash, and hangs or doesn't launch at all.
The drivers included are old, and you still have to get new ones from website.
The adapter just DIDNT WORK at all most of the time
When it did work it was getting 10-50mbps connections, where the cheap old N adapter was getting 300mbps!
There was twice where this adapater made one of my computers blue screen.

Other Thoughts:

I am on Windows 7 64 bit, and I work in IT as a system administrator so I can assure you this is not user error.

I'm pretty much furious that there's responses to the negative reviews here on newegg from the manufacturer but they still haven't responded to the ticket I sent in 6 days ago! They said 1-2 business days! Still nothing. I used to like TrendNet, but the poor quality of this product combined with the even bigger lack of support from TrendNet has ruined them for me. Thank goodness newegg has great customer service and I'll be able to return this hunk of junk.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello TechGuy,

We truly apologize for your overall experience and frustration. If you haven't returned it I would suggest to point the 805ub to your router in orientation to see if that helps. If that doesn't work please email me directly at adrian@trendnet.com with "Newegg TEW-805UB Review" in the subject line and I will be able to assist you immediately with the hassle free return. Thank you for taking the time to review our product and I hope to hear from you soon to restore your trust in TRENDnet.

Warm Regards,
Adrian TRENDnet Support Team
