Great instructions, and awesome customer service tech available online contact.

Pros: I have purchased a lot of electronic items but this one has THE best instructions and also a personal contact Tech via email.
He emailed back information that was helpful ...... but I still did not get it working the way it should. If my comment here sounds odd ....... please go to my "cons" to explain.

Cons: I will be honest here: I have Windows 7 and I had problems getting this product to work. (It did a couple times).
I truly believe Win-7 might be the underlying cause of my unsuccessful attempts to get this to work correctly. Win-7 had it's own paragraph of directions, and I believe the drivers are a problem with Win 7.
I am at the stage now where it connects ALL the time, ... but no sound. Again I believe this is my fault not doing something correct in the fixes he sent. I put it aside for now but will contact them again sometime.

Other Thoughts: If you have Windows 7, I would not recommend this product. I read a lot of reviews of other Bluetooth Dongles and many comments had to do with inadequate or VERY little directions, and or tech help. (I saw one review and it was not in English).
I gave this product 4 stars because of the directions and tech help available and since I am in no hurry, I feel I am just a simple step away from this thing working.

Failed to send it to me.

Pros: None

Cons: Did not arrive.
Two weeks later newegg automatically requested a RMA even though I did not ask for one.
I was refunded my money.
When contacting NewBid they seemed unconcerned and uninterested in solving the issue or compensating me for my time.
"you got your refund, there's nothing else we can do"

yet when I ordered the product they said "whatever you do don't complain to newegg or give us less than 5 eggs, let us help you come to a helpful solution."
Also they offered a 5% rebate if you had to wait longer than 2-4 days past the estimated delivery date.
pretty sure a week past the ETA counts. but because I got my refund, all is well.

x.x; Not fun. Did not feel like a valued customer. Was not notified that the item was not in stock and would be refunded.
Was not offered options on how to proceed or compensation for wasted time.

Cons: Nothing comes to mind.

Exceptional Product

Pros: Product was very easy to install and worked without further ado. Gave new ability to an old laptop that lacked Bluetooth. Use it for printing from laptop and it never fails. Really like the tiny size too.

Cons: What's not to like?

Other Thoughts: I would definitely purchase this product again and highly recommend it's purchase by anyone needing a superior dongle.
