Good product. Be aware if you don't use bluetooth connection then you will also need a power supply because it won't take power from your USB connection. Hence 4 stars.
a very good
Works perfectly, so many useful integrated functions for such a cheap price!
The main reason I bought it was for the Bluetooth connectivity and so far it has served its purpose effectively.
