Excerpt: The Bluetooth adapter appears to be working seamlessly; however, Windows 8.1 can be somewhat more problematic when connecting to a Bluetooth device. After going to devices and coaxing it along it worked perfectly.
very pleased with the purchase for use in MacBook Pro

Summary: Works exactly as described. Used in MacBook Pro where internal Bluetooth was not functioning. No driver install necessary. Immediately recognized and restored blue tooth function. More responsive than original internal Bluetooth. Dongle is slightly bulbous on the ends. Makes it hard to fit certain USB key drives in the neighboring USB port. Overall, very pleased with the purchase for use in MacBook Pro.
Great fix for persistent BlueTooth issues on Apple Mac Pros!

Summary: This is a great solution for a pervasive problem with Apple's Mac Pro systems through 2013. I have not tested the new "late 2013" rount tower model, but all of the previous designs (Mac Pro 1,1 through 5,1) have Bluetooth antennas on the bottom of the case resulting in very poor performance - especially with the Magic Mouse. This adapter solves the problem and upgrades BT to version 4.0 BT LTE. The chip set is Broadcom, which is used by Apple.
Excerpt: This little product does exactly what it is described to do. However, if you also have a Logitech unifying USB adapter they may collide. My wireless trackball pointer goes totally berserk if both adapters are present and connected. Otherwise, it recognizes all my bluetooth devices including what I purchased it for, my Sony wireless headphones.
Excerpt: My laoptop was not Bluetoth enabled so I purchased thid device.It comes with the deice (tiny) installation disc and instructione. If you nhave Bletooth drivers in yor'puter that do not work, uninstall them befor running the new disk. Once mine was up and ruunning, I could easily pair it with my smartphone, speaker or any other Bluetoth enebled deice, providing I hsd the passwords.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
Excerpt: Had some problems setting it up. Had to change the port settings in the bluetooth settings on my computer. But think this would have happened with any adapter. Once I figured that out, it works like a charm.
