1 out of 5 eggsDriver issues

Pros: Features and specs appear great on paper

Cons: As soon as I installed the drivers for this device, I had all sorts of conflicts with my graphics drivers. The computer was working perfectly before I installed this device. As soon as I installed it, one of my screens became fuzzy, and when booting, I had black screens with vertical gray bars. I reinstalled Windows (it is a new build, so it was easy to do a clean install), and the problems are gone.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. The GBU521 does not affect graphic or video drivers , it is a Bluetooth device. To better service you and understand your set up, please feel to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

5 out of 5 eggsDoesn't get much easier than this.

Pros: - Long range, I can access it from anywhere in my house without speeds degrading.
- Cheap
- Does exactly what it was intended for.
- Just plugged in and worked. Didn't even need to download drivers or anything (windows 10)

Cons: - Nothing so far (to be fair I have only had it a few days so its hard to say as far as longevity is concerned)
- Shipping kind of took a bit (and also need to note it was right after Christmas that I ordered it)

Other Thoughts: Got a Bluetooth keyboard for Christmas but it did not come with any kind of receiver. so I figured something cheap would work (and it did). Also been using it to stream\copy files from my tablet and phones at about 23mps, works much better than expected.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of Junk

Pros: It's small and provides your PC with bluetooth capability. Relatively inexpensive.

Cons: Works intermittently, had no problems for first thirty days, ever since that it chooses when it wants to work, so instead of getting another one i went back to corded devices.

Manufacturer Response:

Since the unit is backed by IOGEAR's 3 year warranty feel free to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. Again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.
