I replaced my existing Wi-Fi/Bluetooth card with this one and Windows automatically detected it and installed the drivers. I was up and running straight away, connected to Wi-Fi very easily. I also tested the screen mirroring using Windows 8.1 Wi-Di to a Samsung F series TV and it worked a treat :-). Although when sending video to the TV screen there was buffering and the sound was out of sync, I guess it has it's limitations. I had another issue with Bluetooth partially working, I could pair but not all features such as headset microphone would work. I downloaded the Intel driver and the Bluetooth completely disappeared from Device Manager! I ended up having to remove the card, start the… Read more
1.0 out of 5 stars Faulty, very poor quality, 27 Mar 2014
This looks cute and I bought it as present for someone. I tested it when it arrived and found it kept failing when writing data to it with lots of different errors, such as device not found, device needs formatting, disk has errors please scan. I was unable to write more then 8GB to it before it needed another format. Writes were also excruciatingly slow, less than 2MB/s. After spending a day reformatting it and trying it on 4 different PCs I realised it just wasn't going to work. It's hard to say whether this is a fake memory stick with less than 32GB capacity as I can't even go above 8GB. Also the arms are held on by the tiniest bit of plastic and they feel like they're about to fall off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast and good value., 24 Mar 2014
I was actually reaching 60MB/s writes, much faster than the 40MB/s writes in the product details!
One thing though the 128GB memory stick I got wasn't the one in the picture, it looked like the 64GB black one, no big deal. And it's not very sturdy the case opened up the first time I plugged it in! A bit of super glue did the trick.
I was going to mark it down a star for these points, however considering the speed and price I think it still deserves 5 stars.
