Works as expected

Pros: Inexpensive, low profile, setup is simple (Windows 10)

Cons: Instructions supplied and drivers are for operating systems that are antiquated.

This product worked as I expected. After looking at the instructions which only went up to Win 7 OS, I decided to just plug the device into a usb slot on my Win 10 laptop. Win 10 automatically loaded drivers and no the device worked without any adjustments. A bluetooth headset and speaker connected with no issues. Rating would have been a 10 if documentation had been more up to date to include current operating systems.

Works GREAT - Almost...

Pros: Small, inexpensive, Broadcom chipset, ver 4.0

Cons: Old drivers, hidden software on install, difficult to setup in Windows with included software.

This will work great once you go and get the BROADCOM WIDCOMM drivers. Don't even install the the disc that came with this, THROW IT AWAY. Goto
and download the second item WIDCOMM Bluetooth Windows Software. This will handle everything you need and connect easily.

seems OK so far

on PC1, was able to install the broadcom update and use the dongle with a MSFT BT keyboard right away. on PC2, I couldn't install the broadcom update (it would stop at verfiy device, and give a certificate error). However it was still able to run, I guess with built-in drivers. we'll see how it performs down the road.

Pros: Works, but only if you get the drivers manually from Broadcom

Cons: Disc included doesn't actually install the drivers or anything else successfully except for spyware/bloatware apps. Spot on for other reviews wish I had read them sooner.

If you need a cheap Bluetooth adapter and can't find one reliably anywhere else, this will work but please don't use the CD included. Monoprice really dropped the ball with this one.

Didn't work for me.

Pros: Monoprice's usual fast shipping.

Very easy return process.

Cons: The software seemed buggy, the windows did not display properly and soon.

The dongle showed up in my drivers window but wouldn't connect to my speakers.
