Steer clear of this unit! 03/07/2008
This review is from: cirago BTA-6060 USB 2.0 Bluetooth 2.0 EDR Adapter
The supplied CD drivers, and the latest from the vendor's website, both indicated that my adapter was an "...illegal duplication of Bluetooth Device Address and license key, this copy of BlueSoleil is therefore not eligible to receive the full range of upgrades and product support. It is running in evaluation mode now and only 5MB data can be transferred." It arrived in OEM packaging! This was on an XP-Home system.
I installed on my work PC (XP-Pro) just to see if got same message. It didn't, and I was actually able to transfer data from a co-worker's bluetooth enabled PC. What I didn't realize, however, was that the installed drivers corrupted my PC's connection manager software (used to VPN into client's systems)! And to make matters worse, when I used Windows checkpoint restore to try and recover--it had no effect! I couldn't believe it. I had to uninstall the Soleil drivers, then uninstall the various pieces of my client connection software, then reinstall the VPN.
Newegg to the rescue. I did the standard RMA on line, but when I called to complain about having to pay the shipping and restock fees, which seemed like insult on top on injury, they immediately offered to replace the unit with a more expensive, brand name unit, or refund everything. Newegg has phenomenal customer service. Way to go Newegg!
