5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great to interface bluetooth phone with computer for downloading photos

Cons: Way slower than card reader for mp3 transfer, but that's to be expected. Short range.

Other Thoughts: Might not be best choice for headphones.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks, no driver needed

Pros: Plug it in and the bluetooth icon appears in the system tray. No need to install drivers or any software. This can be handy, especially if you just need to do a quick connection at say a KIOSK machine.

Cons: Would be nice if the protective cap snapped onto the back of the unit while it was plugged in... The way it is you will quickly lose the cap.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks. Once.

Pros: Cheap. Will most likely work once for you.

Cons: Worked once. Then stopped even blinking the LED, (much less functionniong). Return policy takes so long it's not worth your time for the price you paid for this.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great, if you know that you're doing

Pros: It works, and its cheap.

Cons: Many devices or softwares use windows own bluetooth management, and airnets proprietary software can interfere. Also, you need the install CD because the drivers are not installed automatically.

Other Thoughts: This is a great product that works and is cheap. The bluelight is real bright, but I don't care because its behind my PC. The drivers are not installed automatically by windows, so you have to pop in the CD and install the software. The drivers and the software get installed, but their software didn't work with my blackberry 8700 because its own software tries to use bluetooth through windows. I simply uninstalled "blue soleil" or whatever its called, leaving the drivers, and its been working since without a hitch!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

Pros: Has about 30 ft. range inside my office building. If I take off the Airnet dongle to connect a camera or flash drive, then reconnect the Airnet, it syncs again w/o a problem.

Cons: None noted. I am not carrying it around with me or the plastic case might be an issue.

Other Thoughts: I never used the enclosed software. I let XP find the right driver and installed Nokia sync software to go with my 6201i phone. Syncs contacts automatically (and can also do calendar and notes) with no further input from me. Who cares about a flashing light? I just keep it on a USB extension cord and tuck it out of sight.

1 out of 5 eggsTech support is terriable

Pros: Fast shipping from newegg.

Cons: Please hope for a working product, and hope you don't have to try to talk to support. I tried both email and calling for 3 days to talk to a real tech, even with a manager helping me, with no luck.

Other Thoughts: After reading all the other reviews, I'm sure I got a dud. But I should have at least been able to verify I had a dud after a short phone call to tech support.

4 out of 5 eggsIt does the Job

Pros: It does its job just fine
The software is a bit complicated but its easy once u get the hang of it.

Cons: The yellow light that doesnt turn off when I turn off my computer is ridiculously annoying. Also every now and then it'll start to make a little buzzing/clicking/vibrating noise, even tho I dont think it has any moving parts inside...it shouldnt in any case lol.

5 out of 5 eggsVerv Nice

Pros: Very nice little device. Good quality and very small. Works with Linux. Good price too. Newegg rocks!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Strangely, there is no name retrieved from the adapter using the 'lsusb' command. This isn't a problem, but something I normally like to see.
