Astrum Bluetooth Receiver Dongle - BT040

Just plug it in and use the default windows10 drivers. I've had issues with my xbox controller randomly disconnecting from this bluetooth connection. I'm not sure if it's this adapter or the actual controller where the issue lies. The only way to fix it is by unplugging it and plugging it back in.

Works, no drive install required for Windows 10 (and probably 7 too)

Installed easily but does not connect to ear phones and I'm trying for an hour

Using two windows 7 pc's, and the drivers install with a lot of warnings and errors, and shows up with exclamation mark in Device Manager. Can't get anything to connect though. Had better luck with the built in Windows 7 drivers which at least picked up my headset, but still couldn't use it.

Unless you're using windows 8/10.

Works well with my bluetooth headphones. Range starts to cut out <10meters. No drivers necessary on Windows 10 which is great.

Must admit I am a bit disappointed, the dongle protrudes a lot. I was expecting it to just stick out a little, but its pretty long.

Its still is pretty good value though. The technology works well and the dongle is pretty small despite the protrusion.

Works well, have bluetooth headphones and xbox one controller connected at the same time with no problems... Just dont install the software included on the disk.

Works perfectly. No drivers needed. Quality is flawless.

Took some tinkering with Windows 8.1 but after installing the drivers on the disk it worked beatifully. The only thing you have connect to the advanced audio everytime otherwise you get no or mono sound but it is worth not being wired to your laptop.

Great product, easy to install and use.

Product perfect,No manual software apparently on the dongle.

And just like that works wonders. Perfect Bluetooth generic device, impressed

works well, windows 10 loads the driver automatically, using it with a xbox one controller no issues so far. only gripe is a superficial one in that the unit is longer than expected (only by a few mm) so it won't sit nice and flush as you'd think. all in all good buy.

This device does its job the way it is supposed to once you install the sofware with the included CD provided. After that it is plug and play. The only negative for me is that the program itself is a little rudimentary and it takes a little while to figure out how to connect your bluetooth devices to your computer or laptop. Other then that it works very well.

This adapter does exactly what it is advertised as. Needed an adapter to connect bluetooth headphone to Windows 10 PC. The package comes with the adapter and an official mini-CD for installation of BlueSoleil software for connectivity. Installed the drivers and software and rebooted, and it picked up my headphone immediately, connected and every time I switch PC on, it connects effortlessly with headphone. The range of connectivity of 10m was about rightly stated. Had not connected phone or other devices, but if it connects so smoothly with headphone, will not be problem I suppose. Satisfied with the device.

The river it comes with if on Windows 10. You may need to be online for Windows 10 to find the appropriate driver

Two separate Windows 10 PCs and no devices will connect.

Drivers don't install. Generic Windows Drivers don't seem to work either.

Works great, I did notice that the actual USB part is longer than standard so it doesnt fit into all the way into the USB port on the pc and feels a bit loose and the data transfer is a bit slow BUT it works, easy to connect and disconnect and small enough to keep in the USB port permanently. - I can also connect my bluetooth phillips headphones which is what I was looking for.

It does plug and play and work right off the bat but it's one of those dongles that for some reason just won't detect all bluetooth devices, it picks up majority of the major ones you care to use but the novelty items like controllers and speakers become more tedious.

Work's as it should. No problems

no proper instructions and no drivers

I simply plugged this in and it worked. Tested on both Windows 10 and Ubuntu. I use this for my Bluetooth headphones and I can watch videos and play games without (noticeable) lag. It has a good range for its price and it even worked through walls.One thing that is a bit deceptive is that it sticks out a bit more than I expected it to. I thought it would be flush with the USB port, but that's unfortunately not the case.None the less, this is a great Bluetooth dongle for its price.

Works well on my old laptop, however signal stops from time to time then the signal has to be reconnected.

IT IS Standard.

Not working. Device not supported.

Reliable, easy to use, good range

Does what it should.

Bought this to go with my wireless headset for windows. No issues, quick to connect on Windows and out of sight.

It works and no hassle to install on Windows 10. Not so great for the elderly computer...

Works perfectly as advertised.

2003 called.... very useful but as to be expected with max 5Mb/s transfer, its slow

Just a heads up - this does not work on smart tv's. Had to return mine.

This product works as advertised with native Windows 10 drivers. My Sennheiser PXC550 headset connected first time with no issues and I have perfect quality audio in music and games.
Haven't tested the mic functionality as yet.

Does what it says

Great product, first time on Windows 10.

Amazing product after watching a review on YouTube and buying the product it amazing now I can play music from my car wirelessly from my laptop which had now bluetooth.

It works, but only with the specific driver version provided, and not the latest update. I also had to reinstall because of another problem still unbeknownst to me.

good product

Works great. I use it to connect my ps4 controllers to my pc

Works like a charm! Currently using it to connect my PS3 remote to my PC!

Works as advertised - good range and price.

I'm using it for external audio on a Kubuntu 17.10 based HP Envy laptop that has a defective internal bluetooth card. Just plugged it in and it was immediately recognized. Works fine. The USB dongle is a CSR 4.0 (Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd, acquired by Qualcomm in 2015).

Junk product. The licence is expired and it slowed down my pc by 50%.

Great connection to my bose qc35 headphones! However, it is irritating to always have to connect the headphones to advanced audio using the provided software every time I want to listen to something. In addition to this, due to the nature of Bluetooth technology you cannot connect both to advanced audio and the microphone at the same time, and when you do it is with monotone audio which sounds scratchy as if it has really bad feedback.

Conclusion (when using headphones with the dongle): Buy this for watching movies, videos and video editing. Do not buy for online gaming or any activity where you would require high quality audio as well as a microphone at the same time unless you already have a dedicated microphone connected to pick up your voice.

This device does not work on multiple devices that i have tried!
