    "Work great...Works great...Recommended for a friend because while it is still expensive, its cheaper than buying the controller and the adapter separately or at least was when I got it....Ability to have a direct connection and a wireless charged battery is a nice touch."

    "5 star...Not bad...This USB adapter antenna is pretty good giving me a moderate signal from a router (about 40 or so feet away) The 5ghz signal increased the speed of my internet by quite a lot over the stock 2.3ghz wireless card and I am very happy with the purchase....To be fair this thing get's worked hard on a daily basis, heavy online gaming sessions and streaming on top of it so really solid but I was hoping for getting something maybe a bit more durable for springing for a more expensive model."

    "Love it...It Works...My mini laptop can do wi fi but a hard wire connection works faster The insignia USB adapter is lite weight & sits in the laptop as a part of it Now I have 2 options available to go online...So, keep in mind that this probably isn't appropriate for something like a wake-on-lan remote application (although it may be smart enough to turn on in such a situation.) But if you have a standard solid Ethernet connection, it's just fine."

    "Not bad...It's ok...This bluetooth speaker adapter has good range to my phone but the only thing I don't like about it is that is connects automatically to my phone when I get home which I find annoying if I don't want to listen to music just then and it will keep reconnecting over and over if I don't turn it off....As part of my search for a good wireless sound system for around $75, this plus the Logitech - Z313 2.1-Channel Speaker System (3-Piece) - Black/Silver brought me good sound fidelity and wireless capability and was within my budget."

    "Love it...Not bad...I would recommend it for a computer that is within 10 or 15 feet of the router or in the same room but for a desktop that has several walls and some distance between the computer and the router I would suggest getting a free standing receiver that has its own base and can be moved around a little to get a better signal....I oringally planning on buying a new laptop or switching to a tablet like surface pro but whenI found this I decided to give it a shot."

This adapter works just fine....Would of been a 5 start product for me if the HDMI arc popping wasn't happening, and for no reason the led volume lights on the bar just decided to not light up at all I had to unplug and remove it from my Samsung smart TV and plug it back in and let my tv recognize it again."
