2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It...'works.'

Cons: I get a good 4 feet before the signal drops.

The driver comes with additional software that constantly reminds you that you have a "trial version." You need to pay over $20 to receive the 'official version.' Without this version you can only transfer 2MB of data. This is fine if you're just using it for wireless peripherals, but the notifications are annoying.

Other Thoughts: Only buy this if your USB port is no longer than 4 feet away from your BlueTooth devices AND if you're not transferring data. The few extra dollars would be better spent on a better BlueTooth device that allows for unrestricted data transfers and longer range.

1 out of 5 eggsRED Tooth

Pros: it was cheap so I'm only out 15.00... I have to give it at least 1 egg to write this review...

Cons: I run windows 7 on an older ThinkPad laptop. 4 G RAM, 1Tb HD.. I bought this 2 months ago, and it is so annoying to get it working I rarely EVER use it. I've had to install the software 3 times because when it does work -it works very POORLY.. Terrible clunky ergonomics as well. Some of the problems I have had: It takes 5 minutes of fiddling around in order to get it to connect. When the program inputting sound stands idle for a minute, the connection is completely lost. After the connection is lost, the software offers an option to disconnect -but it freezes up- (before I attempt to reconnect). I have to reboot in order to unfreeze the software. (task manager will appear to work, but after ending the process -it will not restart properly, so a reboot is necessary) It just took me 2 1/2 hours to watch a 45 minute program on Netflix because of all the connection issues I am experiencing with this hunk of junk.

Other Thoughts: I have a TRENDnet router. This is a good router. -It does not have really GREAT range, but for the small house I live in, it's ok, and it was a pretty good price. This is on it's 2nd year. I figured I'd go with this device because of the dependable / trouble free router.. Guess I was proven wrong.. bad choice.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Works great. I bought two, one each for me and my husband. We're both quite satisfied with this product.

I tried to get away with automatic/plug-n-play driver which worked at first but I later found it is better to use the driver on the disc that comes with the product.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsGreat Adapter & USELESS DRIVER & SOFTWARE!!

Pros: Bluetooth USB Adapter works great on Window 8 but comes with limited "2MB" data trial Driver/Software!

Cons: I was very disappointed after buying the product and not having the ownership for the driver. The software/driver is additional $27. Trendnet support for the driver/software is also a trial version! The driver for Window 8 is combined in the trial software. So, its worthless!

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Micro USB Adapter

Pros: Great Drivers. Didn't knock out my system like the ones from another vendor did. Good range. Using it on my desktop and the tower is buried under the desk in the front room and was able to walk to the back room of the apt with little drops.

Cons: Very small so easy to lose. On weird hiccup where the buffer was delayed about 10 seconds which of course caused big time latency. Other than that no problems.

5 out of 5 eggsBluetooth for tiny bit of money

Pros: tiny and inexpensive, does not stick out far on a laptop, which usually causes breakage.

Cons: It was not free...

Other Thoughts: Worked instantly on Fedora Linux, true plug and play. It comes with software for WinDoze, but don't use it anymore.

5 out of 5 eggsSo Much Better!!

Pros: I first tried two very cheap IOGEAR adapters (on sale), and had a terrible experience with both. In just a few hours of use, this TRENDnet adapter has put to rest all but one of the issues I had with the previous junky adapters. If it doesn't die after a few months, then everything is solved for me!

The range is exactly what I need. Every room, every corner, doors open/closed... even if I go to the furthest corner and hold my bluetooth device close to my body. Installation and usability are so far great, just be sure to use the disc that came with it.

If you cause the device to loose its connection for a while (I had to lay on top of my device), things will get out of sync... audio will be lagging a few seconds behind, for example. But the adapter smartly will catch back up shortly after. This seems like an obvious feature to have, but apparently not all manufacturers bother.

Cons: Tiny (but not the smallest I've seen). This makes it hard to unplug (which is not a common need).

Blue flickering. Not sure what the point of having the adapter flashing all the time is... maybe for laptops where battery usage is a concern? But it isn't distracting the way I've positioned it, so not much of an issue.
