Yes, the more I read about the 8266 the more it seems like the ultimate "get what you pay for" demo. I could well imagine a lot of snickering going on at TI.
Here's a blog post exploring reliability issues:


The situation w the EMW3165 is more fuzzy, and it appears that module's developers think everybody has the IAR Embedded Workbench on their (Windows, natch) PC. (the IAR software costs thousands of dollars!)

Anything is better than ESP8266 :) (I can elaborate if you want)
If you are looking for something reliable and easy to work with, I would suggest CC3100 (NWP) or CC3200 (NWP+ARM).
They are not cheap, but they are worth every penny.

EMW3165, it's actually been around for a while. ARM  Cortex m4, 2+0.5 Mb flash, 128 k ram. There are a few more capable variations too, but you start to run into the price range where you should just get a pi. (Of course the pi zero makes that price point even lower)
