Fell apart

Pros: Good range

Cons: Silver metal portion slipped of the black plastic portion that held the electronics.
Was removed three times then came apart.

Other Thoughts: Apparently designed for a one time installation. I do not recommend.

Exactly what I was looking for! Not BlueSoleil.

Pros: Works great, has excellent range, and drivers are simple to install and use.
Most importantly, it does not use BlueSoleil Software!

Cons: There isn't clear instruction on how to set up/connect your bluetooth devices, but I was able to figure it out without much trouble (I was connecting a bluetooth headset to my desktop).

Other Thoughts: Seriously if you're considering purchasing a BT dongle that uses the BlueSoleil software, beware, they conveniently decide to shut you down saying that you may be a victim of an invalid license and boom, useless BT dongle. Then there is no support to fix the situation unless you speak Chinese or are willing to call directly during Beijing hours. Their customer service email contact is broken too.

It really doesn't get much better than this

Pros: Class 1 device, decent range, no driver download required on Windows 10, Broadcom drivers are available on Startech.com's webpage if you want to use those. It's a Startech.com product, a company which seems to have what I'm looking for more often over time.

Cons: Support page could be improved. I learned a lot reading Plugable's support page on their adapter to learn about USB rear port issues and USB 3.0 interference.

Other Thoughts: I got better range out of this once combined with my StarTech USB31CAADP USB-C to USB-A adapter. I have an otherwise useless USB-C port on the back of my machine and combined with this BT adapter, I got better signal range out of it by getting it further away from all the USB3 ports and other PC parts causing interference. No adapter gets what's claimed due to interference, tiny antenna and that USB3.0 design flaw.

No Drivers work.

Pros: It said 4.0

Cons: The device's driver disc installs silently and doesn't work. Cellphones, various headsets, all connections fail. Uninstalling drivers from the disc and letting windows install generic drivers fails to get anything to connect with "Driver Errors" still shown in computer management. An emergency free utility meant to give drivers/functionality to flatout bad BT Dongles even failed, with the same issues. Found a replacement from another company for half the price. Can't believe I wasted so many days on this piece of garbage.

Other Thoughts: I've used StarTech before, but I'll have to think twice before ever making that mistake again(Even the last item had it's faults)

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Eric,

Thank you for taking the time to review our USBBT1EDR4 Bluetooth adapter. We appreciate your feedback and are very sorry to hear of the inconvenience you experienced.

The USBBT1EDR4 is natively supported in Windows and the drivers should automatically install for the Bluetooth adapter. Given that our adapter did not install properly while another product did, using the same setup, it does seem that your USBBT1EDR4 is faulty.

We would like to send you a free USBBT1EDR4. Please contact us via the signature link below and kindly reference case number 303-240119.

Again, we do apologize for what transpired, and we hope to hear from you soon!

Regards,

Customer Support

works fine if you skip bluesoleil

Pros: tiny. cheap.

Cons: bluesoleil ransomware included

Other Thoughts: dont bother installing the included ransomware. if you did, remove it or better yet roll back to a state before them, and install the driver meant for the chipset which is broadcom

www.broadcom.com/support/bluetooth/update.php

i ended up doing a clean reinstall but with broadcom it works like a charm.
