1 out of 5 eggswill not buy again thats for sure

Pros: Small, low profile

Cons: like others upon first removal the device broke into 3 pieces. Metal crimp, directional blocker, and main electrical. Given how fragile this item is I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I expected something much better from a product branded trendnet.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Perfect. no drivers issues. Works perfectly with MotioninJoy PS3 controller software.

Cons: it does seem like it would crumble upon removal. its on a back port. just leave it in when adding on/opening case. no need to remove it.

5 out of 5 eggsfinally the one that worked

Pros: Surprisingly many of these dongles are actually USB hubs with bluethooth hanging off of one port. I'm putting this on a small embedded system and the hub was messing up my USB config. Finding a dongle that was NOT a hub and would load into an older Linux kernel proved surprisingly difficult. So I'm sure this 5 star rating is meaningless to most of you, because you're using a PC, but it worked great for me.

Cons: NOne

5 out of 5 eggsGet Hooked Up!

Pros: I am able to use my Q7 Bluetooth Phone head set with this.. Will soon use an x-box 360 controller with this or any other wireless peripherals that I choose. It works well and has a cool little control panel to toggle between your connected devices. "NICE"

Cons: NONE!!!

2 out of 5 eggsHope you like blue LEDs

Pros: Installs on Windows 7 (64 bit) without issue.

Cons: Bright blue LED flashes CONSTANTLY while the computer is on, to the point where I can't have it plugged into the front of my htpc. The reception seems to suffer when it's plugged into the back of the case.

Other Thoughts: I wish manufacturers would lay off the pyrotechnics.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

Pros: It worked.
The associated software installed on my XP computer.
I was able to remove the associated software, using XP's Control Panel, after I decided to return this device for a refund... (readily given, less a small re-stocking fee).

Cons: It didn't work to specification. As a "Class 1" Bluetooth device, it was supposed to service a radius of "up to 100m." In practice, it barely exceeded the other "Class 2" dongle I bought; IOW, about 10m.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks Well But No License Key

Pros: The range is good, I was able to walk to the other side of my 3 bedroom house and still have connection... although it was a tad fuzzy.

Cons: I installed the software and it works fine, but I am restricted to 2 mbs of data before I am asked for a license key that I didn't get with the product. It doesn't have any information on the packaging or on the website so I sent in a message to customer support. Would rate higher if the software that came with the device was a full version and not a trial

Other Thoughts: I tried to go to the website to see how much it would cost to actually purchase the software (in case I don't get a response from support) and the website it down. Really? I just want to listed to a full song on pandora... sheesh.
