Sort of a tradeoff

Use it for few months. It does work OK on Windows 10. On Linux not so much. First, producer only supports two linux distros, Ubuntu and CentOS or something like that, and for older kernel versions. There is still a chance, that it works on newer version, as it was in my case, but you have to build drivers from sources, as there are no binary packages of any sort, and rebuild them every time you update kernel packages. No DKMS support whatsoever, which would be extremely beneficial. Not something you should do in 2021.

Plug and play, no installation needed

Stuck it into USB slot and straight away our PC (Windows 10) has Bluetooth! Didn't need the manual & driver installation guide. And because it's Bluetooth 5.0, I've got multiple devices connected to it (2 headphones, 1 speaker). Also, no audio disruption even if I take my headphone to the other rooms of the house. Very happy with this purchase. Reasonable price & gets the job done.

Worked for 2 weeks then corrupted after Windows 10 update

Was working for 2 weeks since purchase, then unfortunately the latest Windows 10 update (mid Sep) corrupted the driver (at least as soon as I ran the update it gave me an error). Tried removing, reinstalling, restarted, the driver still has an error that no update or installation seems to resolve. Don't know whose at fault, Edimax or Microsoft.

Good value

Plug and play on Windows 10. Works well with Bose QC35 II headphones, haven't noticed any issues in audio quality, although I'm not much of an audiophile.

Did the "Trick"

Purchased the Bluetooth Receiver to use headphones on my 10 year old desktop PC. Plug and Play - No problems - Enjoying my PC time whilst my wife is watching TV - Bliss. Good price too and up to date with Bluetooth 5.0 technology.
