2 out of 5 eggsSKIPPING IS DRIVING ME NUTS!

Pros: If it worked w/ music it would be great. :-(

Works fine for transferring photos from my cell to PC!

Cons: Running Vista 32bit Business and for the life of me I cant stop the music from skipping during playback!

Have called there support and got replies like try plugging in into the from of your PC USB port. DID NOT WORK.

I have tried there driver as well as the one from Broadcom as they suggested and still the same.

Other Thoughts: Would be fantastic if it worked? What driver will actually fix the issue???

5 out of 5 eggsKinivo BTD-400 Bluetooth 4.0 USB Adapter - For Windows 7/Vista

Pros: Compact, performance enhanced, driver software disc, quick start guide included, easy to pair headset (Jabra Talk) to laptop; easy to pair smartphone (Samsung Note 3) to laptop; backwards compatible; range proximity 20-25 feet, depending on barriers. Able to transfer a variety of file types (.doc, apk, xls, jpg, png, avi, wmv, etc.) to and from laptop (HP Win7 x64 Home Premium) and my smartphone (Samsung Note 3).

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Agree with Cameron K's points about Rocketfish; I too [still] own a Rocketfish Bluetooth adapter, and Kinivo BTD-400 exceeded my expectations 100-fold. Definitely, follow Joesph G's recommendations for install; can't go wrong there. Previous reviews mention the blue light as being extreme...maybe for them but it doesn't emit a lot of light.

5 out of 5 eggsThis Product Works!

Pros: Had this Bluetooth Adapter for over two months now with no problems.
I have used it on windows 7 and windows 8 and had a great experience with it.
it says Bluetooth 4.0 and it does work with older devices.

Cons: there are no issues so far.
the only con i can think of might be the blue led light if some of you do not like that
other than that, this thing works!

Other Thoughts: ive owned a rocketfish bluetooth adapter originally and i would recomend kinivo over rocketfish for bluetooth adapters

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: It works well when drivers are installed. It's also very compact.

Cons: Very bright LED and a bit difficult to figure out how to work it (this was my first experience with bluetooth). No carrying case and black color makes worried that I will lose it rather easily. Regular price is excessive, but I got it on sale for $15.00, which is what I recommend as the top price for something like this.

Other Thoughts: Being a noob to bluetooth and above-average in most other areas of computer electronics, I found this to be a bit tricky to get to work on both my 32-bit PC and 64-bit netbook (both running Windows 7). I did eventually get it to work though, so if this isn't your first bluetooth, you shouldn't have any/much trouble with it. Being nit-picky, the LED, like most LEDs, is extremely bright and will light up a small dark room like my bedroom. I don't like this because I bought this to listen music wirelessly while in my bed. As stated above, I wish it came with a carrying case or was at least a different color because of the compact size and black color. I'm pretty sure that if I were to lose it, I would never find it again.

As a side note, if you're thinking of purchasing a bluetooth receiver do not go cheap and buy one online from China. They are cheap for a reason: their signals suck and they fall apart.

5 out of 5 eggsConnects to Wasp Barcode Scanner!

Pros: IT got our Wasp WS500 barcode scanner back in business! Easy install on Win 8. Great device.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: We extended the effective range of the receiver by using a USB extension cable and raising it up by taping it to a column. We can scan inventory from the far corners of the office now, whereas we could not do that with the USB receiver that shipped with the Wasp device that was lost.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Bluetooth Dongle

Pros: -- Bluetooth 4.0 with low energy (LE) compatibility.

-- Driver software included.

-- Tiny little beastie.

-- Sips power.

-- Pretty blue light.

Cons: I have yet to find any. From the research I put into this product before I purchased, this is the most complete, affordable, Windows-compatible Bluetooth 4.0 LE compatible dongle on NewEgg.

Other commenters in here call into question the claim that this adapter is not OS X compatible. Do your research!

Other Thoughts: Bluetooth stack installs fine from CD. Make sure you follow instructions, and after the install check Windows Update for updated drivers.
