Numark Omni Control DJ Controller... DOES NOT WORK (in fact, with anything Windows 8, as per conversation with Numark support team)


Pretty gutted about that tbh, I'll have to buy a new one.

Logitech Wireless Speaker Adapter... DOES WORK hit the little button on top, scanned for new devices on my Surface, drivers were installed in less than 30 seconds. And it worked, straight away. Happy :) really good for £25!

Logitech Performance Mouse MX (Without Setpoint, the two ‘extra’ buttons do nothing. Tracks beautifully.) (Tested on SRT 8.1P)
StarTech 1.8” USB 2.0 CE IDE HDD Enclosure with Toshiba MK1214GAH 120GB HDD (Tested on SRT 8.1P)

I'd like to edit my above post about the bluetooth audio receiver to add that it will interfere with Wi-Fi signal if you have another bluetooth device already attached.

I notice that apparently people are reporting things working without regard to if it is on a Surface Pro, or just a Surface. I suspect this will lead to confusion down the road.

Samsung SE-506BB/TSBD My Surface Pro 2's USB 3.0 PORT can not fully power this device. that means it can generally play DVDs, but fails to play Blu-ray moves when directly connect to my Surface Pro 2 USB port. This device comes with a single USB 2 connector, and does not come with the ability to add external power.
