1 out of 5 eggsVery frustrating

Pros: Decent range, easy to use after a rather lengthy install process. Handy to use for moving files to/from cell phone but the discovery and pairing process problems make it so time consuming that I would go back to a USB cable technique.

Cons: Lots of BSOD's. I bought this to be able to play mp3's from my T401G phone through an XP based home theater system. Single selections would play OK but playing from a playlist would cause a crash/reboot after the first selection. Tried it on a Vista system with same results. Tried 3 different versions of the drivers including the 12/5/2011 one with slightly different symptoms but always ended up with a frozen computer and reboot.

Discovery and pairing was not very reliable and frequently I had to power off/on the device to get discovery to work. This should have been a very simple process but between the phone visibility timing out and the failed discovery on the PC it was not much fun at all.

The original install disk would not install with Vista and just gave an error stating a UI error when selecting the Install Software option. Pretty basic stuff here. When you can't get past step 1 in the install process you pretty much loose confidence in the rest of the software.

Other Thoughts: You can manually install from the disk or download by selecting 'setup' form the proper directory but no better end results.

The 1-egg rating is probably a bit harsh since the file transfer works OK but I use a USB cable for that so it is pretty much useless to me. Can't think of any other use for it.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work with Win7 64-bit

Pros: Plugs right in and installs drivers flawlessly

Cons: Doesn't work with the only version of Windows I own - Windows 7 64-bit. Huge waste of time and money, going to send back and request a refund so I can buy another one.
