It’s possible I was sent a mispick. Sent back for refund due to it not being as described.
if you shut down then reboot your PC it doesn't work when left in, it's best to take it out before shutting down. Between TRYING to switch the Bluetooth connection it gets stuck even trying to remove the Asus from PC formally through control panel. It does become frustrating.
What I think it's meant for is you sitting at a desk with just the headphones/earphones paired and that's it. It's not versatile at all. When connection is lost it's difficult to re establish, without a restart.
While it does work, I can confirm that it does work, there is occasional stuttering with no objects blocking the connection and i'm about 3 meters away because i use my PC on Tv screen on one end of the bed and me at the other. This is a rare occurrence but is worth mentioning that it's not totally reliable.
Like other reviewers point out, this problem does not exist on the smartphone, connection is seamless and can switch between speakers and headphones with relative ease, the same cannot be done here.
I live with my parents so it is speakers during the day, headphones at night. I wanted to keep the wires down, but for this much money you are better off getting a male to female AUX cable that is a bit longer than usual.
It might be the case that it is under powered. Perhaps the battery Bluetooth adapters or external unit plugged into the wall will give the desired results but unfortunately this will not.
I give 2 stars because it's not a complete waste of money it's OK if it's paired with 1 thing and left alone, but I would not recommend it.
The bad news:
The signal was intermittent and kept breaking up, even though my speaker was less than two meters from my PC.
When I disconnected (switched off) my speaker and switched it on again, the adapter would not re-connect. I could overcome this by removing the speaker from the PC config and re-connecting it.
This might have been acceptable had it not been for the poor connection and erratic breakup of the sound.
I have had good experiences with Asus products in the past including mother boards and monitors, so was disappointed with this. What has to be said is that these devices are fairly old in computer terms as they were manufactured in or around 2012; certainly the drivers are dated 2012. This is because most modern PCs/Laptops have Bluetooth already installed, and manufacturers are probably reluctant to build newer versions of these adapters.
I believe that they were tested up to Windows version 8.1, but saying that they are fully compatible with Win 10 may be a bit of a stretch, even though Win 10 finds drivers for them.
I suspect that whether these work or not with Win 10 will depend upon the hardware that you have or possibly what bios you are running, but there is no way of knowing until you plug it in.
Clearly many here have had good experiences with this adapter, but mine was returned under Amazon’s excellent returns policy.
-Works with Windows 10 no driver installs required
-Works with Xbox One S (This is the newer controller release sometimes people call it a V2 controller)
-Works with latest smartphones for the odd photo transfer
-Works with my Sony MDR Bluetooth over ear headphones
The not so good
-Range is quite limited
Basically the dongle just works as it should being a 4.0 adapter its one of the latest Bluetooth versions i believe the very latest is 4.1?
The device lets its self down on range when attached to the back of a desktop PC where many many factors that can affect range come into play - having speakers near the dongle, positioning behind a PC desktop etc... they all take away from its already fairly limited range.
To get around range issues i personally use the dongle In a front USB port located at the front of my gaming PC / tower if you didn't have this option available to you then I'd recommend buying a USB port extender so you can place the dongle in a much better position.
Sadly from my research there appear to be very few good quality USB bluetooth transmitters for PC, so I cannot recommend a better one.
