Works when it feels like it
on June 16, 2014
This thing is hit and miss. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't.
Yesterday I was trying to watch a movie and couldn't get any audio once I started the movie playing.
I tried everything. Turning the adapter off and back on. Removing it and plugging it back in. Re-pairing the device.
It just wouldn't work at all. Then my browser kept crashing every time I tried to play something. Finally, my machine bluescreened with btwaudio.sys, yep that's the bluetooth driver. Based on the code it is due to hardware failure.
This is on a machine that hasn't had a single hick-up since the last time I wiped it about a year ago. That was until I plugged this bluetooth adapter in.
Today I was streaming music for around ten minutes when it started cutting out, making popping sounds, audio muffled, and then the audio stopped altogether. I turned the speaker off and back on. No change. I turned the adapter off and back on, no change. I had to unplug it and plug it back in for it to even work at all. Still getting popping sounds and muffled audio.
I have a few bluetooth devices and same thing happens on all of them, yet all work perfectly fine with my phone via bluetooth.
It will cost me near the price of the adapter just to send it back. No thanks. This is what I get for buying cheap. I will never buy this junk again and cutting my losses.
