TRENDnet Wireless Adapter: Poor Quality and Bad Customer Service

Product Review of TRENDnet TEW-424UB IEEE 802.11b Wireless Adapter

So I went to my local computer store and noticed that they were holding a special on the TRENDnet TEW-424UB Wireless Adapter. The adapter was normally $19.99 and they were offering a $12 rebate. It was cute and blue, and had a flip top. When I asked the disinterested salesmen (in those kind of stores, you don't really exist unless you are trying to buy a $3,000 television that you don't need) about this particular wireless adapter, he flippantly said, "Yea, I have one at home and it's fine." That is probably their standard answer to someone who is not spending big bucks and dares to "bother" them. Anyway, at $7.99 a pop, I figured hey, why not get two! Then I could hook one up to a third computer which was set up in another room of my house.

So I purchased two TRENDnet adapters at full price ($39.98 plus tax) with the expectation that I would be getting $24 in the mail soon from TRENDnet. I filled out the forms and included copies of the receipt and UPCs in the mailing, just as the rebate offer requested.

The adapters worked fine for about one month and then started acting up. They connected at the distance I needed--about 20 or 30 feet from my router, and through walls.

But then the adapter that I hooked up to the third computer in my house completely conked out after one month. The other one I was using for my laptop started dropping the connection, coming back on, and dropping again around that time. About a month later it stopped working completely. I admit that the second one got bent a little due to my own clumsiness, but the other one was not affected by human interaction in any way, and still malfunctioned. I was angry, because now I had to go back to the computer store and get another brand of wireless adapter and pay more money. But I figured I would just write off the $8 per adapter as a lesson learned that you get what you pay for. Right?

Wrong. I got a letter in the mail right around the time the 2nd adapter malfunctioned (yes, two months later) saying that they couldn't reimburse me because I didn't include the actual UPCs. So I cut both UPCs from the box and sent them in explaining that I had two refunds coming to me . I had to wait another six to eight weeks before receiving my money back. In the meanwhile, I purchased a new adapter made by Belkin which I love and is still working to this day.

One day months later I happened to dig to the bottom of my mailbox under some sales papers and saw a (literally) crumpled up check mixed within. I looked and noticed that it was my refund check from TRENDnet.

But there were some figures missing. The check was only for $12. (I know, what a whole lot of trouble over a few bucks right?) So I called the company and asked them what was up. They said that they only allow one rebate per household. That must have been in the super fine print, because I darn sure didn't see it. If I would have known that I wouldn't have wasted money on not only one, but two crappy adapters. Many of those rebate offers are just ploys to make as much money off of us "suckers" as possible for inferior products.

So anyway, my review of the TRENDnet TEW-424UB is not good, and neither is my review of the company as a whole.

Side note: Hey, these consumer products companies had better get wise. Now that the internet is in just about every household, word is bound to get around about how terrible your electronic product is. Word of mouth is one of the best ways to sell and kill a product; I would think they'd do everything in their power to make their customers happy.

In short, if you are looking for a reliable wireless adapter to perform for you in the long run, go buy a Belkin, or another more well-known product.

If you are looking for a pretty little blue paperweight with a flip top, buy a TrendNET TEW-424.

Pros

- It sure is pretty!

- When it does work, it has good range

Cons

- Inferior quality

- Bad company customer service

- Confusing and deceptive rebate system
