Product Description

Size: Bluetooth V2 | Color: BLACK

Work on the go with SANOXY® Bluetooth USB 2.0 Micro Adapter Dongle! The super compact design of this micro Bluetooth dongle makes it truely portable. With an exterior shell that measures only 9x10.6x5mm, it's perfect for your laptop or notebook! Transfer files between your computer and any Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as cell phones, PDAs, printers, headsets, and more. Create on-the-fly networks between two computers w/ Bluetooth. This simple USB adapter acts as an antenna for your computer, giving it Bluetooth capability. This bluetooth dongle comes with a full version of BlueSoleil software and drivers. However, the software is not licensed to every type and model of hardware that is capable of using Bluetooth. If the software detects hardware that does not match the license keys it expects, then the software will impose a 5MB data transfer limitation. To overcome that limitation, users must purchase a different version of BlueSoleil software separately. We apologize for any inconvenience.

It can work with my phone, but not my bluetooth headset.

I was told that these things aren't going to be made anymore, so I bought 3 (very cheap) and now I don't know if I can get them to work for anything.

Plugged in, Windows 7 immediately recognized it and installed drivers.

This mini 2.0 USB Blue Tooth dongle has potential but the bundled software ruins it. I paid about 5-6 bucks (including shipping) for it - the reseller had it to me in record time. At this price point, really, there was not much for me to lose and my expectations were not that high.

The dongle ships in a plastic pack with a mini CDROM. The mini CDROM has software (Bluesoleil 2.6.0.8) that enables Blue Tooth features that go beyond the basic Windows XP Blue Tooth capabilities, including A2DP (stereo music).

The dongle is tiny. I have an Acer Aspire One netbook and the dongle barely juts out from the side of the netbook - a clear improvement over my Targus Blue Tooth USB dongle, which is 1 1/2 inches long. This improvement, however, was the only improvement to be found.

When using this USB dongle in a Windows XP environment, you really have two choices:

1) Plug it in and let XP detect and install a generic Blue Tooth driver for the device
2) Install the Bluesoleil software

If you go with the XP drivers, you are going to be able to use a decent and stable set of features, such as a reliable Blue Tooth mouse connection.

If you go with the Bluesoleil software, it opens up the functionality of the device and provides additional features that the XP drivers don't support, such as stereo music.

The problem is, the Bluesoleil software is not good. The user interface is ugly and non-intuitive. You'll just have to install it to see for yourself. Additionally, the software is, by design, crippled. Per the help menu, patches and upgrades will cost you. You can purchase a full version that, among other things, removes the data transfer speed-cap so that you can listen to MP3s without hiccups.

First unit received had a manufacturing defect that prevented the dongle from being attached to the usb port.

The replacement could not pair with other devices using Microsoft's bluetooth driver on XP(sp3) clean install. It also did not work with Microsoft's bluetooth driver on Vista x64. Also tried ubuntu linux 9.04 and also did not work.

After troubleshooting in ubuntu, the system log revealed that the device shuts down and restarts each time the bluetooth radio is used. And that was the apparent cause of pairing failures.

update: the device doesn't appear to use the Broadcom 2045 Chipset as stated in the detailed description. I installed the WIDCOMM bluetooth driver from Broadcom and it doesn't recognize the device.

I know you're tempted by a bargain (I was!), but put the money towards a better adapter.

This might work for some, but on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine, the default drivers from Windows Update don't work (can't get through the pairing process). The version of BlueSoleil shipped with the product is obsolete and also doesn't work. BlueSoleil does have a nice working version on their website, but to get a full version without the shady data transfer limit, you'll need to shell out another $20 or so, at which point it's no longer worth it. Lastly either the dongle is NOT based on a Broadcom chipset, or Broadcom didn't write any 64-bit drivers, but their Bluetooth setup utility cannot detect the device either.

I feel like maybe if I keep digging around the web I'll eventually figure it out, but at this point I'm ready to throw in the towel. At least it's only a couple bucks down the drain.

Based on the couple other reviews, I thought that I would take a gamble on it. I needed something to connect my cell phone bluetooth headset to my computer for a VoIP setup needed for work. With little information and having never used bluetooth, I gambled and I won.

The dongle has a small foot print. The software is excellent. I was able to connect all my cell phones and the wireless headsets to the computer with out any problem. Further, I was able to integrate my wireless headsets to my VoIP application (Avaya IP Agent, in case anyone is wondering). I was pleasantly surprised to see that the device packaging says that it is VoIP capable. The software is easy to use.

Over all, I am very pleased with the device. For less than $10 and the small footprint, you can't go wrong using this device.

I recommend it to anyone looking for bluetooth USB adapter.

I bought this to replace my large Kensington adapter since this is much smaller and I could leave it in the laptop. It works OK for a mouse or keyboard, but not stereo headset. If you simply want to connect a bluetooth mouse (I recommend the Microsoft Notebook Mouse 5000) there are few choices this small and inexpensive. If you want to run more than a mouse, look elsewhere as this adapter cannot handle multiple connections and everything studders and skips.

I run Windowws XP, which has basic capability to support a mouse, but not advanced profiles like headset with microphone or stereo headset. So you can just plug it in and let windows recognize it, you do not need to use the driver CD. The Driver CD includes a very old version of BlueSoleil software (V 1). This will add additional bluetooth profiles to Windows XP. I tried this software to enable my Plantronics 855 stereo headset. I was able to pair but playback was studdering, and unusable if I moved the mouse at the same time. My old Kensington 333348 adapter worked flawlessly with both devices.

If you prefer Widcomm software over BlueSoleil you are out of luck, as Widcomm only supports their own Broadcom chipsets. This adapter uses Cambridge Silicon Radio hardware, so you are stuck with BlueSoleil for advanced profiles in Windows XP. BlueSoleil wants you to upgrade the free software on the CD (V 1) to the latest (V 6) for $20. Version 6 is very good, to bad this is not distributed with the adapter.

The package states 300 foor range, which is a class 1 transmitter. Your device must also be a class 1 to reach this limit. All my devices are Class 2 (30 feet), so I was not able to test the claim. My devices worked to 30 feet successfully.

Bottom line, this tiny, inexpensive adapter will work fine for a mouse with or without the driver CD in Windows XP. While adequate for simple needs it cannot stream stereo audio without skipping.
