An extensive list of hardware that is known to work. If the device requires tweaking, please mention the tweaking steps.

The criteria are not as strict as in the hardware recommendations list, but all mentioned hardware should still be somewhat "worthy" for a gaming PC. We really don't need 20 years old Bluetooth sticks, even if they work out of the box. If possible, also add a price and a timestamp in the form YYYY-MM.
