Plug and Play
Pros: Just plugged it into my windows 10 pc and it installed itself. Works great.
Overall Review: I have tried a few of the chinese no-name bluetooth adapters and always seem to have a hard time with them. The instructions are impossible to follow, they require special drivers, don't work, etc. But this ASUS bluetooth 5 adapter was simple and just works.
Vista owners beware!
Pros: Nice case, nice design. Works fine under Windows XP and Windows 2000
Cons: The version of U3 Launchpad will NOT work with Windows Vista. DESPITE the packaging saying "Vista compatible" on it. I called sandisk tech support and was told that no, the U3 launchpad (1.2) will not work with Vista, and they don't have any plans on updating it until after October 2007. I don't have much confidence that they will do it even then. I am sending this back and buying another brand
Well I guess you get what you pay for
Pros: Its small and it plays mp3 files
Cons: No way to select songs. No rechargeable battery. Tried it on two computers and it tells me the disk is write-protected. The chip is not write protected (I tried it alone in a card reader) and the hold button is off. Meh. I only got it cuz it was $4 after rebate. It's for a stocking stuffer.
Pros: It plugged in and worked fine with no problems. It reads and writes almost everything. I have not had any glitches at all with this drive so far.
Overall Review: I dont know what was wrong with that other guys's drive where he said he could not get it to read any discs, but I suspect he got a faulty drive. I have had no problems with this drive using SATA - and I am using it on a two year old Asus motherboard.
