This review is from: Actiontec USB01000C-01CL Skype-certified VoSKY Chatter Box

Pros:

Maybe it works OK with older operating systems?

Cons:

This WILL NOT install in Vista. Despite the sales hype about an "easy, plug and play without drivers"-type install, they NOWHERE divulge that this is useless with the standard OS that has been shipped with most new PCs for the past half year. Only one obscure post in the VoSKY.com forum admits that it will likely never be able to work under Vista. This is not because of drivers but probably due to ChatterBox chipset limitations.

Other Thoughts:

Why is it that this VERY important "spec" or OS requirement/limitation is entirely missing from ALL of their literature and sales information? ggrrr.
This is no way to treat customers. What do they expect us all to do now? VoSKY/ActionTec won't even fix the problem, yet they keep selling this worthless product to unsuspecting people?
