I'm a 16 year old teen with little knowledge of devices, but I was able to plug this into my computer that is using Windows 10, install the drivers, and complete the install process (had to restart my computer). Then I found the easy to see CSR Bluetooth icon to add a device. Messing around with the playback devices in the sound settings was a little random, but took about 30 seconds and now I'm listening to sounds with great quality. Got it for a low price of ten dollars as well.

I have a 2.0 adapter that I was using and it worked great, but I was taking it back and forth to work, so I ordered a 4.0 to use at home. I never could get the 4.0 software to work,correctly. I attempted to install it 5 different times on 2 Windows 7 and 1 Windows 8 machine, so I installed the 2.0 software and it works fine. If you having problems getting the 4.0 version software to work, try an older version.

Comments about Kensington Bluetooth 4.0 - Bluetooth Adapter for Notebook:

Wanted to use bluetooth headphones with my PC, but they didn't connect, nor did any speakers, nor did my phone, nor did anything at all. Completely useless.

Don't buy this device

By 

from Ohio, United States

Comments about Kensington Bluetooth 4.0 - Bluetooth Adapter for Notebook:

The usb drivers that come with Bluetooth dongle worked for about 1 day with Windows 7. On Windows 8, the native drivers allow me to see other devices to join for about 1 second and then disables it self. The ver 4 drivers ( Bluetooth® 4.0 USB Adapter 64 bit (K33956) Dec 15, 2014) don't work at all. The version 2 drivers ( Kensington Bluetooth USB Micro Adapter 2.1 ) work, but gives me a message that Evaluation period has 30 days remaining. What I do see are a bunch of users not able to use the product. What I don't see is Kensington offering a solution. Do Kensington a favor and motivate them to fix the product, by NOT buying it.

Incompatible w/ Bose Soundlink Devices

By 

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about Kensington Bluetooth 4.0 - Bluetooth Adapter for Notebook:

I purchased this adapter knowing it was their latest version of Kensington's line. However it did not work for me. I was attempting to use it to pair my Bose Soundlink III with a laptop running Windows Vista 32bit. It discovers the device and states that it's paired but, no sound. I called Bose tech support and they state "Since it works with other bluetooth devices you have, it's nothing wrong with the speaker. Check with the manufacturer of the laptop or bluetooth adapter." Well I see this was going nowhere.

Gets BT devices onto a win7 bootcamp on mac

By 

from San Diego, CA, United States

Comments about Kensington Bluetooth 4.0 - Bluetooth Adapter for Notebook:

After a while of frustration tryign to get my beats head phones to work on the PC side of my bootcamp mac with win7.. I tried this.. and it all works.. nicely.. only issues are the widget sticks out a little further than needed.. (an extra 2mm), has sharp corners so it snags going in and out of the bag AND its got a really really really annoying blue LED that is way brighter than need be..
