    • A. Bluetooth "base" functionality is nearly guranteed by Microsoft with "Darfon" generic drivers, well kept secret but free to anyone at freely available in 32 and 64bit versions w/o registration or cost. 64bit download page http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ScopedViewRedirect.aspx?updateid=12d745c0-d3cb-4431-aad6-90406daea7e2 32bit http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ScopedViewRedirect.aspx?updateid=5740cd1d-debe-45df-88ad-bf8084e8aee7 Base drivers are rudimentary , designed for installing and functionally powering up the bluetooth adapter. Deciphering problematic customized bluetooth software isn't for the uninitiated.connecting mice is rudimentary and included within Windows, but speakers or camerasm DVR's and the rest of the stuff making Bluetooth alluring isnt assured and might rely on customized software cpable of creating bigger issues no Darfon driver can repair. These ioGears are inconsistently made, either too tight or too loose in thee USB port. I use Ciragos comparably priced, better drivers, widely compatible and optional feature installation app suite know for stability. Ive owned both and others and Ciragos consistenlty outperform and outlast the rest of my USB BT dongles measured in yearsle time

    Careful: Bloatware and annoying software installed

    by OneTip

    If you have already bought this device and want to avoid installing the extraneous and annoying software (bloatware) that is installed with the installation CD provided by IOGear, try the procedure that is discussed below. Hopefully, the generic drivers from Broadcom, the manufacturer of the chipset that is used to make this device, will enable the device to work without all the associated problems with the intrusive software that IOgear installs. Correspondence with IOGear 08 March 2013 Question: I have purchased a GBU521 Bluetooth 4.0 USB Microadapter. I want to be able to install it without all of the bloatware and additional annoying software that your installation disk attempts to install. Please tell me how to do the installation without this extra intrusive software. Answer from IOGear: You can try using the driver from here: http://www.broadcom.com/support/bluetooth/update.php Thank You, Randall IOGEAR Service Support

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    The one I received was completely worthless. It wouldn't work at all. I tried to contact the manufacturer and they had this long drawn out process of issuing a ticket and then a number and You had to fill out all this paperwork mail it in (which would cost just about as much as the product itself). I finally talked to a employee at Wal-mart and though this was ordered online, they agreed to give me a refund. I will be trying a different brand. I do not want to have to deal with that manufacturer again for anything!

    Every time I tried to use it to hook up the speaker, I got the "blue screen of death". This was on a laptop running Windows 10, so, can not comment about any other operating system.

    I was skeptical at first about the transfer speed but it really pulled through. WHAT YOU GET: CD FOR DRIVERS AND USB ADAPTER. - Very small wont take up space. - Connect up to 4 devices at once. - Very Affordable. - Transfer more than 1 file at a time (Other bluetooth usb will only allow 1 file at a time) - SIMPLE TO INSTALL USUALLY JUST PLUG AND PLAY. Unless your computer asks for drivers which the cd already came with. - If your desktop or laptop does NOT have bluetooth, this usb will give you bluetooth funtionality using authentic windows drivers NOT a 3rd party driver or seperate program to transfer files. I CANT COMPLAIN ABOUT THIS PRODUCT VERY AFFORDABLE AND FAST!!!!

    My laptop said Bluetooth capability but it didn't actual have the logo and I wanted to connect my wireless speaker so I can listen to my music. It was easy to install and works great. Once you connect it to the USB Port, you never have to remove it. Great product for the small amount I spent to purchase the item.

    my biggest concern when i ordered this item was whether it would work properly with Windows-10. No problem. drivers were already present so all i did was plug n play. primary use is to access a bluetooth speaker.

    I was looking for a way to get bluetooth on my PC. After research I learned that I just needed a bluetooth adapter. My need for bluetooth was to easily transfer pictures from my phone to my PC without the hassle of searching through folders when connecting my USB to my computer like usual. Now, I can quickly and easily pick a picture and shoot it straight over to my PC, no hassle! I love it. :D

    Avoid the bloatware CD that comes with this

    2.0 stars 11/16/2013 by Thetruthneedstobetold
    by Thetruthneedstobetold

    Thanks to reading all the reviews, I was put off about buying this product as many mentioned the bloatware that installed with the drivers. I have used Iogear products in the past so was very dissapointed. after reviewing the competition and finding nothing else. I decided to take the plunge. Also some of the instructions provided in the other reviews helped. Thank you, you know who you are. I first installed on a Windows 7 Desktop. Installed the adapter and windows went online and downloaded the drivers. Said it installed successfully. Tried to connect my Plantronics voyager HD PRO Bluetooth headset and failed. After a reboot the device still would not work. A quick google suggested I install the latest Broadcom software from www.broadcom.com/support/bluetooth/update.php. This info from the plantronics web site. Did that and some of the features started to work. I can now transfer files to the phone Samsung Galaxy S3, Skype works thru the headset but music does not. I then Plugged in the adapter on my three year old Win 7 Laptop HP G60 notebook. note the built in mic on this has been broken for awhile. started the computer Windows went online and installed the drivers. I also installed the broadcom driver. After a reboot everything worked fine. Unit sees both the phone and the headset and uses the headset as the default audio for all audio. I do hope iogear realize their error and drop the bloatware as the product is good overall. I now have working audio on my notebook and the adapter sits nicely in the usb port without getting in the way. Can connect multiple bluetooth devices at the same time. Seems like Walmart has dropped the price by a $. Hope this helps some one. The two stars is just because of the bloatware and the difficulty in getting the info to make it to work.
