So the title pretty much sums this up. I am not in the IT field, but am bieber-deep in the computer world (I build my own gaming rigs and troubleshoot all my own IT problems). While not an expert, I consider myself fully self-sufficient. That being said, getting the drivers to install on a Win 7 SP1 Sager NP8150 was kind of a pain in the a$$. Had I not been highly computer literate this may have been a huge hurdle. For someone with your Average Joe's tech knowledge level I kinda cringe.
Overall, this little dongle has performed well, paring to my cellphone, Vizio sound bar and other devices. This will earn a 4th star should it hold up over time. I think the 5th star is reserved for a device which upon being plugged in is recognized, updated and is 'plug'n'play' right outta the box - which this was not. If you're NOT a computer nerd like me or work in the IT world invite, that friend of yours over, have a few beers and let someone else save you the time of fiddling with this.
Overall I'm happy with the price point and function so far.
EDIT: Alan with the manufacturer raised a valid point that you _shouldn't_ need to manually install any drivers and that Win 7 _should_ recognize and grab them for you. In theory, yes, but in practice that's not working all the time. It is possible that Win 7 is the culprit and to be honest that wouldn't surprise me in the least. Considering I had the same issue with another Win 7 SP1 terminal (this time a desktop PC) there is definitely an issue somewhere whether it be a problem with the adapter or Win 7 SP1. I've had 2 different machines had the same problem requiring the same solution, downloading the PandaBT4ForWin.zip (407mb file) file from Panda's site and doing driver installation the good ol' fashioned way. Not a big deal, but most folks probably aren't comfortable doing their own driver support.
