This works like any electronics device should work, almost seamlessly and transparent. I installed it on Windows 7 with no problem. Installation went smooth. Setup is a little tricky and the instructions do not cover how to set it up. I paired it with ease but had to "connect" it to my bluetooth headset manually after I paired. This is done by clicking on the icon in system tray then open settings and in the "audio" tab right click on the icons to "connect" also be sure the services in the bluetooth devices are turned on with checks in the boxes. I have tried others and this is the only one which has worked for me and the price is right. Range is about 30 feet. Sound quality is good with stereo. Everyone of the specs is accurate.

Comes with user .pdf CD and drivers CD (2 cds). It's a small package, don't cut the package open because you won't even know the cds are in there until you've knicked the cd's with scissors or knife, they're the mini CD's. On my Jawbone Icon headset I can listen to my mp3s and podcasts from my desktop at about 30 feet through walls so don't buy into the reported 100 meter range because that'd be for completely open line-of-sight transmission, but that's still much farther than my Jawbone can talk back to the dongle. For example, when using Skype from your bluetooth headset you may be able to hear your caller at 30 feet away, but your headset can't transmit back so they lose your voice. You may have to move closer, due to your headset's transmit power. The drivers included on cd are for 64bit and 32 bit machines. For those who wrote about drivers problems, I think they have missed the cds in the packing, I did at first. Bottom line, for sure: on a Win 64bit system using Vista, you'll find this a smooth install and feel you've made a solid purchase. 14 bucks won't buy a family dinner at McDs any more, and this purchase may last you for years, 24/7? Obviously too, you can pop it out of the desktop and take it with you on your laptop after you've loaded the drivers onto that machine. It simultaneously runs all your devices. It syncs my Blackberry wirelessly when I walk into range while printing something and talking on skype (when running the BlackBerry desktop software), runs my new printer without any wires around the floor to across the room, and lets my wife listen to her foreign language studies cd's from her machine using her wireless headset with her laptop without bugging me when I'm working online with business. Go for it, good product. Wish I'd bought one long ago, now buying another... for her, so she doesn't cob mine.

This little adapter is fully loaded and delivers everything as advertised. Note that the software that comes with the package does not contain the latest Windows 7 drivers so make sure you go to ASUS's support website to get the latest software. I'm primarily using this for the A2DP/Stereo audio connectivity feature. It works perfectly and the connection is solid and clear. Very impressed with this item.

I'm way too cheap to buy a laptop that had Bluetooth built in, but I'm just classy enough to buy a pair of Bluetooth stereo headphones, which I typically use with my iPhone but also wanted to be able to use with my laptop. So, for practically nothing, I bought this handy dongle. It works splendidly, and it has the word "dong" right in the name, which I find hilarious, in an extremely juvenile way.

The best thing about the dongle is that it allows me to connect several devices to my laptop at once without having a separate wireless receiver for each one - plus, I get to say "dong" a lot, and again - That's funny.

I highly recommend this item - it's inexpensive, easy to install and has really good range!

The product description indicated compatibility with Apple, however this is not true. Fortunately, I have two Windows 7 computers I can use this with, but have to purchase a different dongle for the mac.

Tried to install on two Windows 7 (64) computers, and followed the directions. Took over two hours to install, started receiving weird messages such as "Error Applying Transforms. Verify Specified transform paths are valid." Would halt installation. Website was useless, even painful to navigate. Came up with a work-around: Identify the program suite name trying to install in "add/remove programs", in my case it was "Bluetooth Suite (64)", then do a command line find in regedit and locate the main install key. Then delete the entire key. Then it worked. Might be more than the "plug and play" consumer could accomplish; anyone with some experience in the registry would have little trouble. If these directions seem vague, search for the "error applying transforms...." message, and you should be able to locate additional resource.

If you can get it to install, it appears to work flawlessly, and I am enjoying both of the ones I purchased. Linked two desktops, cellphones to both, and all now share a "not network capable" printer between them. I couldn't buy a print server, I don't think, for $20 that would make this happen.

Good product, terrible driver support (Win 7 64), happy once installed.
