I have a Windows 7 compatible keyboard but my laptop runs Windows XP - will this device enable me to connect the keyboard to the laptop? 22 days ago
Sorry, no idea. I ran it on a laptop with windows 7. And besides Microsoft do not support XP anymore.
My Windows 8.1 HP laptop doesn't appear to have Bluetooth on it. Will this allow my laptop to connect to other bluetooth devices, such as speakers? 23 days ago
That is what it is intended to do but in my experience it failed to connect to anything, I received a replacement and that failed to connect also...no better than a similar one costing £1 on popular auction sites
I have Windows 7 on my laptop and am looking to buy some wireless speakers. I just want to link up with the speakers. Will this adapter do this? 27 days ago
It will work with Bluetooth speakers
Only if your Sony stereo has a USB port and blue tooth capabilities.
Will this work as a receiver? ie can I stream music from a tablet or phone to the device (computer)? 4 Jun 2014
Yes! I have tried it, and it works. You will have to install the Bluetooth Stack from Broadcom, that is on the supplied CD to get the needed support. You can even command the phone from the PC (like Prev Song, Next Song, Stop, Play). I played it on a Lumia 620 phone and Windows 8.1 PC, should work on Windows 7, and probably all Androids.
why is it so complicated? I thought you just bought one of these adaptors and plugged it into your laptop and your wifi headphones would work. 10 Jan 2014

Hi there, If your soundbar has Bluetooth connectivity and you are using the Bluetooth USB adapter via a PC to connect wirelessly to the soundbar? Then I may suggest ensuring windows (if that's what you are using) has the soundbar selected as the default playback device. This can be located by right mouse clicking on the volume icon in the bottom right of the screen and selecting the playback devices available from the dropdown list. Once the sound window has opened you should (if installed correctly) see the soundbar or Bluetooth device within the device list. Simply right mouse click on the appropriate device and choose `Set as Default Device'. Hope this helps, Nick
Does this support the APT-X audio protocol? 6 Jan 2014
Hi, I found this on the Internet , if it is any use. Our Plugable USB-BT4LE uses the Broadcom BCM20702 chipset (http://www.broadcom.com/products/Blue... ) and works with Broadcom's latest Widcomm Bluetooth stack (http://www.broadcom.com/support/bluet... ). As you say, A2DP is Bluetooth's standard for stereo audio, and it allows for optional codecs. SBC is standard, and aptX is among the optional ones in use (note aptX has more than one variant). It appears that Broadcom was an early licensee of aptX, but CSR (Broadcom's main competitor) purchased the company behind the technology in 2010. Broadcom and Widcomm do not advertise aptX support. If aptX is important to you, I'd recommend getting an adapter using a CSR chipset, since CSR now owns the technology and it's not clear how widely it will be licensed. It's one of these things that appears it will always be fragile -- since it's not a required or tested part of the Bluetooth standard, each layer involved needs to support it, and everything will fall back if anything doesn't work out -- it can be difficult to be certain how much effort is justified. Thanks again for asking ahead .. sorry I don't have better news, and hope that background helps! Bernie
