setup

Reviews around setup (5.00 of 5)

  • Now I can use my AirPod Pro’s for MS Teams meetings and they work perfectly.
  • Setup was effortless -- my operating system treated it as a "plug-n-play" device and immediately recognized it (while this may not be true for other versions of Linux, drivers for the dongle are available
  • This dongle is absolute trash if you don't have the precise setup it needs to function correctly!I have a windows 10 pc which did already have an onboard networking/bluetooth card -- most modern PCs will have this which is just asking for trouble if you want to use this bluetooth dongle, which would otherwise be better than most pre-installed onboard bluetooth in budget-minded machines
  • Setup was a breeze and have not had any issues finding and connecting to all of our BT devices!-
  • this was the easiest setup ever you did not have to install drivers on Windows 10 it literally installed in less than 2 seconds this is a must-have if you're trying to connect an Xbox one controller a PS4 controller or any Bluetooth

installation

Reviews around installation (5.00 of 5)

  • The adapter installation was seamless in Windows 10 and works well with Microsoft Wireless Desktop.
  • The installation was easy, pairing was painless, and the connection works well... unless I step more than five feet away from the adapter
  • Installation on Windows 10 is very easy though, it's plug-and-play works flawlessly.
  • I'm fairly certain this dongle was designed to be compatible with Windows 7 and back, and not Windows 10, because despite following the easy installation steps this thing was horrible to work with for the week that I had it
  • the easiest installation, really is plug and play with Windows 10

  • overall I would spend your money on a better quality product don't waste your money.
  • Don't waste your money like I did and look for something else.
  • First, I have an 8 y/o desktop that does just fine for what I need, however it doesn't have Bluetooth built in, and I like to listen to training videos, or podcasts and don't want to have to be corded to my PC.I am running Windows 10, and for some reason, it didn't work by "Just plugging it in".

  • Didn't work for my Plantronics PLT-M165 on my Windows 10 PC
  • now our pc has Bluetooth capabilities, like to connect the game controllers and headphones
  • No drivers were required to download and my PC recognized it right away running Win
  • Now I have a 100% reproducible problem where, any time I disconnect the dongle while my PC is on (whether bluetooth is on or off), it crashes my entire PC

range

Reviews around range (4.22 of 5)

  • Sound quality is fine, but consistent range is only good for around 10 feet or less.
  • Only downside I have seen so far is the range is somewhat limited to twenty feet or so, but that is typical of a Bluetooth connection and not really a problem since the portable JBL speakers are paired with a portable laptop, with music from Amazon Music Unlimited
  • The range is really good, much better than my laptop or iphone
  • Easy install, seems to have good range, excellent stereo sound
  • The range and strength of the signal is complete garbage though

Reviews around usb (4.10 of 5)

  • $10 👎🏼I would save your money & look for a internal Bluetooth card or a better Bluetooth USB adapter
  • Don't recommend this usb for anyone trying to play games with a Bluetooth controller, specially online games
  • All I had to do was a) disable the laptop's Bluetooth on Device Manager and b) plug the TP-Link on an available USB port and c) scan for my headset, pair it, and connect it
  • This Bluetooth USB is Garbage, it works for all of 1 minute before everything sounds like a robot with auto-tune

device

Reviews around device (3.30 of 5)

  • Would recommend this device to anyone who seeks a bluetooth adapter for their PC.
  • My desktop has built in bluetooth, however, it must be a pretty bad receiver or something as my devices would lose connection frequently and cause stuttering
  • 10 Bluetooth menu options after I downloaded the proper device driver
  • This device is a nice inexpensive upgrade for pairing modern Bluetooth devices.
  • The device itself has to be wrangled into working with windows, and then adds a separate, kludged together "Bluetooth" menu rather than simply working as a Bluetooth dongle
