1 out of 5 eggsSent me wrong bluetooth dongle!!!

Pros: Nothing

Cons: I ordered this exact bluetooth adapter to use on my Linux machine. They sent me a completely different adapter and it doesn't even work in Linux, Windows Vista is even the highest release of Windows that it supports.

Complete garbage and useless to me, I give you an F in life and "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries! "

5 out of 5 eggsIt is great

Pros: The Bluetooth Dongle works right out of the box in Linux and that is wonderful. I can transfer files to and from phone and computer. It transfers really fast and no problems, like the product.

Cons: The only thing that it doesn't work between two computers, it sees the computers but does not transfer files, or want to pair the two together.

1 out of 5 eggsNot impressed

Pros: Small design, easy to carry around

Cons: No support for Windows Vista, even on XP it wont work of the standard bluetooth framework, installing a bunch of drivers to operate the device.

Other Thoughts: Buy something else...

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: Bluetooth 1.2. No problems at all with Blue Soleil software- pretty new Windows install- I would assume the people with problems must reinstall Windows. No problem with "pirate" IP stuff mentioned earlier.

Cons: Nowhere near 100m range. If it's plugged in the back reception drops significantly; in the front 100% signal to about 20 feet; in a house it does go through couple of walls. During moving headset looses signal pretty much all the time...ups ground "managed" to set the record for slowest delivery of 2 oz package- lesson learned- ALWAYS go with FedEx.

Other Thoughts: I got that to work w/ Motorola HS-850 headset and Skype - it does work, but that headset has the worst noise hiss that I gave up. Other than sync your phone to computer, it really has no use.

3 out of 5 eggsThis is NOT Bluetooth spec 1.2

Pros: Reading the comments I see it works for most.

Cons: This product is NOT version 1.2, check the manufacturer website.

It does not work with my LG Chocolate phone, or LG HBS 110 Bluetooth Headset.

Do your homework and read forums and such before purchasing any bluetooth products.

Between 1.1, 1.2, And 2.0, you must know what you have and are getting.

Other Thoughts: My phone and headset are able to connect to built in bluetooth on my laptop. This dongle does not work with my devices. I'm going to have to deal with jumping thru hoops now to exchange this out.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy to use, decent range

Pros: Easy to install and works flawlessly with my Nokia 6133.

Cons: The range isn't quite what it's touted to be. The software can be somewhat intrusive.

1 out of 5 eggsnot a great one

Pros: Easy to install and set up. Finds devices quickly.

Cons: Could pair with my RAZR v3c flashed to alltel (like the other guy) and it wouldn't get services list so it was pretty useless.

Other Thoughts: Would have been excellent if it used the correct drivers to appear as a bluetooth device, but the drivers load it as a bluetooth usb, which Windows will not use on it's own. Widcomm drivers make no difference. With return shipping and restocking fee, I only got about $6 back.

3 out of 5 eggsClass 1 good?

Pros: Range. Works with my hands-free (samsung wep200).

Cons: Does not work with all class 2 devices? Finds and pairs my phone (vzw v3m flashed to alltel) but doesn't get the services list. I have a class 2 adapter that works with it. Used both Widcomm and included Bluesoleil with same results.

Other Thoughts: BT 2.0 means 1.2 and 1.1 as well. I can't find anything that says class 1 is either compatable or incompatable with class 2 devices. I know it uses a different frequency-hopping scheme. I have a class 2 adapter on it's way, since everything else is class 2.
