Great...when it works9/4/2012 12:56:07 PM

Pros: - Full bars even when only the main USB plug is used, router 40 ft away. - Can get signal from the building across the street.

Cons: - Connection dies after two hours, it sees ZERO networks even though there are at least 10 in range. Have to disable/enable the adapter to fix the problem. - Old drivers (based on Realtek drivers from from 3/10/2010) , no new updates on the Amped website since 1/24/2011. Even the Mac drivers are at least 7 months old - Have to force the IP address in order for it to work with an older a/b/g D-Link wireless router. - The USB socket on the adapter is a little iffy. Have to push it in real good to get a proper connection. Seems like it'd break fairly easily.

Overall Review: Windows update keeps peddling a newer version of the Realtek driver that this adapter is based on. Doesn't work well with it though.

works....a little12/16/2010 9:12:08 PM

Pros: -Cheap, got it for under $10 -easy install -works with my logitech bluetooth keyboard from across the room, on Windows Home Premium 32bit and Windows 7 Professional 64bit.

Cons: -Dies if I use the keyboard too much, and doesn't fix itself without a reboot (switching ports doesn't work, reconnecting the keyboard fails). The driver for this is a year old, no updates available.

Overall Review: It fulfills the reason why I got it, to connect my keyboard to use when I use my computer as a media center, which requires very few keystrokes. It only dies when I use my keyboard for more intensive things like gaming. The issue isn't with my keyboard as I use it intensely with my laptop's built-in bluetooth before getting this dongle for my desktop. Also, haven't tried using more than one bluetooth accessory.
