Update: It's Feb 2016 and I have been continually using the same MindWave for over a year. I am consistently amazed by it. Just yesterday, I gave a presentation and what was presented was a sub-band analysis of the alpha-frequency bands of research participants receiving photic brain entrainment at 12 different frequencies in the alpha-band, and it is currently being written up for peer-review submission by the end of this month.
It's a cool toy if you use it that way, but if you use it with OpenVibe, and take the time to learn something about cortical electrophysiology, you can do some pretty amazing stuff. The first photo is of a monitor screen during data acquisition in an actual experiment. OpenVibe provides the display algorithm. The second is of an Excel spreadsheet of the Matlab analysis and graphing the results of the experiment. The third is of an operator in the control room as the EEG was being acquired (from the participant in the adjoining dark room as pictured on the monitor to the right from an infrared camera).
Unfortunately, your product has not performed at all because I was unable to get the headset to communicate/pair with the RF dongle, and a second issue, even at it's most extended setting, the headset prove to be too small for my medium size head. For starters, the drivers that comes with the CD are out of date, even the CD image on the Neurosky website contain out-of-date drivers. I was able to get the latest copy after some digging on the support page, but the pairing process alway ends in a timeout.
Paying this little for a product like this, especially if you want/need it for a serious project, is probably not a great idea. Connectivity is inconsistent at best, even after searching for several hours for the correct driver/utility software combination by scouring FAQ's and forums. It could be a really great and fun piece of hardware for IoT beginners, hobbyist makers, etc. But Neurosky will need to commit a lot of time into software support and troubleshooting. As is, it's not dependable at all. Don't buy it.
I work with an arts and multimedia company who wanted to do an installation based on some EEG readings. We looked around for some hardware to play around with, and I decided to go ahead and grab a Neurosky Mindwave just to start experimenting.
I was excited when it arrived and started setting it up. Right away I was running into problems. I was working on the latest Mac OSX version (High Sierra 10.13.2 at the time of first Neurosky install), and the setup disc was completely useless out of the box. Nothing worked after install. Couldn't locate the radio frequency dongle, couldn't connect the Mindwave.
I had to search forums, FAQ's, and blog posts for two hours, installing, uninstalling, and re-installing various versions of drivers and software before I finally got one of those combinations to work.
Once it did get connected, the data I got (working in Node.js with an npm package specifically designed for the Mindwave) was easy to understand and simple, but all I really needed for our project. I was starting to think that, after the initial hiccups, this might actually work as a perfectly workable solution for our end product.
Sadly, I was mistaken. Sometimes, after my MAC took a nap, the Neurosky utilities couldn't find the dongle. Sometimes, the dongle was located but it couldn't find the Mindwave. Sometimes a restart would re-establish connectivity, sometimes it wouldn't Sometimes moving the dongle from one USB port to another would work, and sometimes it wouldn't. It wasn't the battery -- I put a brand new one in when I started working with it, and put in more brand new batteries when I started to experience connectivity issues.
So...I'd like to be able to recommend it, but I can't. It's been far too frustrating. I know, it's an $80 EEG headset. I can't ask the world. But I should be able to ask for consistent connectivity, at the very least. I don't know if there isn't adequate software support on Neurosky's end, or if my dongle is faulty, or what. I'm certainly not going to shell out another $20 for a new dongle just to find out.
Next time I dabble in a project like this one, I'll probably spend a little more and hope I'm paying for better quality. And I probably won't go with Neurosky. I recommend you don't, either.
if the product was refurbished the price must have been lower. How could you solve this? I'll be in miami until next thursday.
I think the device is excellent, but you have to give options to the customers to pay for the different apps, I'm from Argentina and PayPal is the only payment method for download buyers... Paypal isn't working in Argentina.
