    Works with LEGO Mindstorms NXT and EV3

    Pros: Inexpensive
    Drivers easy to download.

    Cons: Windows won't recognize it automatically
    Included drivers don't work correctly

    Inexpensive, works great, and compatible with LEGO Mindstorms NXT and EV3 perfectly. Used on Windows 10 and 8.1 at least, but I have every expectation it would work on any other OS that will use the drivers (SEE BELOW!)

    As Wibb said in the most helpful review on here, I can't say it any better:
    "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."

    WOW! Great product, great range, great price

    Pros: - Easy to connect
    - Amazing range
    - Unbeatable price

    Cons: None so far

    This is my first review of a Monoprice product only because it's worth taking my time to write one. I am thoroughly impressed with this product. I had ZERO issues connecting this to my Windows 10 64-bit PC. I followed the comments and did not install the CD that came with the package and downloaded (not installed) the drivers recommended. As soon as I plugged this product in, my PC detected and installed the product with no need to install any drivers whatsoever.

    As far as the product itself, it's great! I primarily bought it so that I can listen to playlists on my PC in my office on a bluetooth speaker around different parts of my apartment while I clean and do chores. and shower. I must say, the range of this bluetooth is phenomenol, much better than my iphone 6s+. I can project to my cheap-o bluetooth speaker through all kinds of walls, all the way to the back of my apartment where my bedroom is. To give a visual, when you leave my office, you essentially make a U-turn down a long hallway to my bedroom which is separated from my office by at least 30-50 feet. I get a little bit of distortion in certain parts of my bedroom, but that's just because I was placing the speaker in awkward places to test the connection. This also works in my bathroom which has no direct straight path to my office. Would DEFINITELY recommend this product.

    It Works.

    Cons: The CD is useless.

    It does what it is suppose to do, glad I read the reviews as the CD that comes with it doesn't help therefore you'll need to get the drivers from Broadcom. Works with my windows 7 pc and my laptop as well.

    USB Bluetooth® v4.0 USB Dongle works great

    Just plugged it in and it worked. Using on a cheapo Win 10 computer. For under $13 total, completely worth it. Wish I'd bought it sooner. And I got it within a week of ordering it.

    Easy to install and configure

    Pros: Easy to install if you follow the comments.

    Take the disc that comes with it and throw it away. Then follow the instructions listed in the comments here for using the Broadcom drivers and you'll be up and running in minutes.
