Pros
cheap
wireless N
small
Cons
blue led quite bright
Summary
Use it for a LAN-only all-in-one printer. It converts it onto a wireless all-in-one printer with a cheap price.

Pros
Cheap
Small
Cons
drop  signals
Wasn't very consistent
Summary
For me it didn't work as well as I thought it would and I wasn't very impressed. It could've been my router but I just switched back to using Ethernet cables. It is cheaper than the Microsoft ones tho which is a plus.

Pros
Great Reception. No lag time. Wireless N. Works as adapter for my xbox360 and backup wireless adapter for any computer at home.
Cons
Lots of wiring. User guide was useless.
Summary
Having this hooked up to my xbox360 for quite some time now. At first I had some issue with it dropping signals after sometime of online playing, however once I change my router it works like a charm. You need to initialize it with a computer (without wireless adapter) first, then you can use it with your console. The user guide did not mention about having problems setting up the device on a computer that already has a wireless adapter to it, therefore, remember to disable the original adapter before setting this device up. I got this at a sale when the price is $39.99, I do not want to get ripped of by the other $99.99 Xbox360 only adapter. Once more complain would be the power adapter and lan cable being messy, other than that, I would have gave it 5 stars. It works perfect, xbox live works perfect, red dead with my friends no problemo.

Pros
No drivers required, works with anything that has ethernet
Cons
Included software didn't work at all for me
Summary
The included software didn't work at all for me. I called Tech support, and they had me change my computer's IP to a static IP 192.168.1.50, then browse to the adapter at 192.168.10.110. Then I was able to configure it and connect it to my wireless network. No guarantee but I bet this would even work on a Mac.
This isn't just a wireless adapter for gaming systems. It works fine on computers & laptops too, and I'm using it on a photocopier.
For the price, this is an Excellent value, and a very versatile device.

Pros
Compact, easy setup
Cons
Signal strength, weight
Summary
Awesome because it is a simple alternative for wireless for guests with laptops. Bought for our PS3 and it works fine for online gaming. Signal is not as strong compared to my ddwrt linksys router but that took a day to configure (this was about 30 minutes from start to gaming. Totally flexible usage like a portable network port in the house. Only caveats are that it's a deal at $60 but a no brainer when I paid $35, second caveat is that the base is not weighted so it does frequently fall due to it's small size if the cables are tugged.

Pros
Cheap
Effective
Fairly simple setup.
Cons
Had a problem and had to redo the setup. Hope that doesn't happen every time we get a power problem
Summary
Well the price is much cheaper than the Xbox wireless N adapter, so I'm willing to put up with a few problems. I live on a really lousy power grid, and when the power went down, I had to redo the installation. That was a pain because I couldn't do the regular setup like I should have been able to. Manual setup is a pain, but fairly easy to follow. When it is connected it seems fairly fast and has good signal strength. Overall, good value for the money.

Pros
Easy to setup, looks good, works well with a desktop/laptop, Supports WPS
Cons
Doesn't work properly with a PS3, Poor service from TrendNet Tech support
Summary
I purchased the WEP-647GA to provide better than 802.11g speeds for my Playstation 3. This is the intended use of the product from the description.

In actuality, from the start I had to restart the device every time I started up the PS3 in order to get an address from DHCP. Sometimes I had to restart the device and re-do the WPS (automatic setup of the wireless connection). Other times the device would work find for hours at a time only to drop  the connection while streaming video from a media server on the same router.

After Trendnet recommended an update  to the firmware it worked perfectly for about 2 days before it was no longer able to get a DHCP address on the PS3 at all. Finally, after more than a month into the ticket with Trendnet, I was told to ship the unit (at my cost) to California. At this time it was too late to RMA with NCIX (which would be easier). It isn't worth the shipping costs to ship this $35 item to California only to get another device of the same quality.

In the long run, I decided to use the device with another desktop computer in my house and it works fine here. I suspect the device has problems bridging the broadcast  DHCP request from the PS3.

My recommendation is only buy this when it's on sale and only use it for a desktop or laptop computer. Your mileage may vary with other gaming platforms.

Pros
- Small and handsome
- Very fast
Cons
- Blue LED lights
- Shipped with questionable firmware
- Could use a second Ethernet port
Summary
I purchased this device to replace a flaky DD-WRT bridge repeater that simply wouldn't retain a wireless connection, that required constant power-cycling and that I couldn't correct no matter what I did.

I set up the 647GA using the one-button WPS setup feature available on both my router and the device. It worked fine for a while but later on I had found that it dropped the connection. I had to power cycle it every time I wanted to use my Xbox, basically. This was quite frustrating since it's exactly the issue with my DD-WRT setup that I was trying to resolve.

I solved this issue on the 647GA by:
1. Upgrading the firmware
2. Setting up manually instead of using WPS
3. Setting up a static IP for the device

I think probably just a firmware update  would have been enough but I wanted to kill this issue without further fiddling. Now the device never drops the connection. It's extremely fast and reliable - does a wonderful job for Xbox Live and streaming content from other machines on my network.

My only complaint is with the bright, blue LEDs. They don't belong anywhere near a home entertainment system, where this device is most likely to be used. It might also be nice to have a second Ethernet port on the device, say for a Blu-ray player or something, but then I guess we'd be talking about a whole different class of device.

Pros
footprint, speeds, connectivity, works, verion 1.2
Cons
had to upgrade firmware (see below), installation
Summary
Using this with a 360, works great, now. Although the installation should be extremely simple and is, it would not pick up the network signal when the 360 was first turned on with unplugging and plugging in the unit. A firmware update  fixed this. Now picks up the signal with the power button on the 360 like it should.

Signal strength is great, using it in the basement and my router (linksys) is located in another room in the basement. 360 network monitor has the speed off the charts, using N on the router.

xbox live works perfect, and is able to stream 720P mkv's, not 1080P though, stutters. All in all, very happy to get wireless n to my 360.

Comment: The TEW-647GA is a solid solution for connecting a single Ethernet device to your wireless network, and it’s much less expensive and much more versatile than Microsoft’s Xbox-specific offering.
