    I have been reading more and more stories of the Lion 10.7.3 update causing serious problems.

    Reports claim the problems are widespread. How did it go for you?

    did not have any seen problems with the update after it installed on my macbook pro but when i tried to transfer some videos i had ripped with my macbookpro over my network to my mac mini then all hell broke loose 5 gig file transfer said it would take 2 hours were before 10 minutes or faster was norm and when the time machine backup hit the machine slowed to a crawl so i say thats my problem and i still have the time machine to time capsule bug were sometimes it looses track of the sparse bundle for the backups

    I did the delta update on my MBP, and the combo on the Mac Pro at home and the one in the office. No problems with either of the 3.

    installed delta, no problem.
    overwrite it with combo, no problem.
    but Lion still has annoying bugs not fixed in this update.

    Installed combo on 2011 Mac Mini, a few programs started a lot slower. Back to 10.7.2 for now.

    I always wait a week before applying any update. Let the Apple lemmings cross that rickety bridge first. :)

    Good thing too... software update insisted I install the delta but after reading all the crap here I held off until Apple pulled it.

    I installed the Delta update, and got the graphical glitches that were widely reported. I then installed the Combo update and they were immediately resolved.

    MBP 15" Early 2011

    Download: 41/2 - 5 minutes

    Install: ~ 8 minutes

    No problems at all since download.

    No dropped apps and no wifi slowdown - same speeds and stability since downloads.

    Yet :D

    Edit: Problems did arise - spinning beach ball of death, somewhat slowed wifi connection, slowed loading, and others. Downloaded the combo, and all is well....... for now.

    Since i installed the update when i wake it up or re boot the CPU gets very hot and the Fan start blowing very strong. Never had this before.

    Other then that all seems to work as usual.

    I didn't even know there were issues with it until reading through the news. :eek:

    I've had major issues with 10.7.3 server and actually just posted in Mac OS X Server sub-forum (I thought it was more appropriate). I would greatly appreciate if anyone has any advice as what I should do next.Thank you!

    Since I publish an app, I always grab updates as quickly as possible to make sure my app still works. I have no interest in installing the betas though I really should find the time to set up a Virtualbox so I can test them when they first come out rather than downloading them when everyone else is trying to get them.

    I read some horror stories about 10.7.3 and hesitated but decided to give it a try. Mine weighed in at under 800 MB so I'm sure it wasn't the combo update which would have been closer to 1.3 Gig. Unfortunately, I didn't grab any extra copies of the update and now I've got the rest of the Macs in the house to do at 1.3 Gig each as the combo update has been withdrawn. While I understand Apple's decision to pull the update, it was pleasantly uneventful for me. I guess I'll wait a few weeks and see if the smaller update comes back before updating our other Macs.

    2008 Aluminum (13 in) MacBook, no problems. After I loaded it, I made sure all programs I have I updated (Growl, DivX, Silverlight to name a few). I uninstalled Office for Mac 2008 because it won't update...ever! I am going to get 2011 eventually (Home Use Program, great benefit for military). My MacBook seems faster and more responsive.

    I'd like to remind everyone that the results here are going to be skewed somewhat towards people with problems. People who are having no problems with Lion are not likely to be reading this forum at all right now.

    This is always the case; reading these forums you might think Lion is the most unreliable crappy OS in the world, when the truth is this sort of forum concentrates the users who tend to have problems, since they come here seeking help.

    I haven't had any issues with Lion; my reason for being here is that I'm just a geek who likes to read about issues people have with OS X. ;)

    Applying the combo update to all three of my Macs went smoothly. No new problems to report. The 10.7.3 update did fix one of the issues I was having though.

    It does not seem so. Even the poll is showing very little problems with the update. Just seems any problems reported with Apple the haters jump in on the bandwagon when its not that much of a wide spread problem.
