Works with iMac?
Pros: Cheap, decent range.
Cons: Tried to install this device from an iMac workstation running Tiger OS (spec sheet on TRENDnet website said it was Mac-compatible). The installation disk, however, would not run on the iMac. I phoned tech support and was told that due to heavy volume I would need to leave a number and would be called back. No one called back. Next day I used my XP laptop to run the installation disk. I was then able to configure the router. I was able to successfully connect the iMac to the router, as well as a Netgear wireless repeater. Seems to be working fine now.
Less than spectacular
Pros: Looks HD. Permanent filter may prove to be a good deal.
Cons: Won't empty your room of airborne junk or smoky smells. Says "Honeywell" on the canister but it's not made by that prestigious company; they just licensed someone else to use the name.
Overall Review: I have run this 24/7 since receiving it a few weeks ago, but it hasn't made the room smell fresh and it doesn't capture all the dust, lint, allergens and effluvia in the air. As many others have noted, it's pretty loud, too. I am mildly disappointed that this machine hasn't relieved my allergies.
Works for me ... not
Pros: Seems well made.
Cons: No male connector
Overall Review: Wrong one for me. I am adapting a SATA hard drive to an IDE cable. Just a note to warn you that all the plugs on this adapter are female. If you are expecting a male connector so that you can plug into a female connector on the IDE cable from your power supply, you will be disappointed.
Pros: Wouldn't know.
Cons: Can't connect to the camera. *Note also that the wireless version of this camera does not have audio or pan/zoom functions. Also, it must be focused manually.
Overall Review: I should have paid attention to the review by POC. I set up the camera, following the user's guide. But couldn't get the wireless to connect, I assume because the router is password protected. I went online and discovered the workaround is to hook it up via Ethernet first to configure the wireless. Plugged it in, and the camera appeared to be recognized by the admin software that comes with it, but that's as far as it got. I could not access the camera to configure it. This apparently must be done with a web browser, but the supplied web address would time out. I am stumped. At this point, it is a very expensive paper weight!
Pros: Easy to set up.
Cons: Started malfunctioning after only a year. (Left click sometimes doesn't work, sometimes works like a double-click -- it seems to depend on where exactly I press down on the key and how hard I press.
Overall Review: Mouse is almost as big as my hand --- unfortunately the "sweet spot" for left-clicking is at the very front so finger must stretch to reach it.
