    Doesn't work
    Severe driver problems with Win 10 build 15031.rs2. Continual connectivity problems. Numerous attempts to find compatible driver have failed. Supplied driver caused pc reboot.

    Worked great for the first 4 months
    Worked great for the first 4 months - now it intermittently loses connection completely - and I have to either press the reset(?) button or unplug/plug back in for it to work... then functions normally until the next time it cuts out again.

    When it works its fantastic.

    Not Operational
    I must have received a dud. After installing the software and plugging in the adapter, the adapter did not light up, make noise, or become accessible to my laptop. I had high hopes for this rather large thumb drive adapter but was sadly unable to use it.

    CONS: Wish it worked out of the box.

    Worked for a few months, now disconnects constantly
    Like another reviewer, mine worked fine for a few months and is now having connectivity issues where I have to unplug and plug it back in for it to work. I suspect it might be a driver issue due to a Windows 10 update, but without a newer driver to correct the possible issue, we can't really do anything. It might be a hardware issue, but I do not have a machine using an older version of Windows, so I cannot test.
