This product has been with me for years. I have the revision 3 and I believe they are up to revision 5 already. It has worked flawlessly with my old Sony Ericsson T610 phone. And it works even better with my current Nokia 6600 mobile.
I installed the product in my Apple PowerBook G4 and iBook Dual USB and it instantly recognized the product without any drivers. I also believe this is the same product found inside every Bluetooth-equipped Mac because Apple did release a firmware update to their internal Bluetooth and it included these external D-Link DBT-120 units, if a user had one. (The only problem is that if you updated the firmware that Apple provided, you will not be able to use the D-Link on a PC. I haven't updated mine and never ran into sync problems).
I sync my address book and calendar in Jaguar and Panther OS to my mobile phone and iPod without any hitches.
Pros:
1. Small, compact, light
2. No drivers needed for Mac OS Jaguar and Panther and Windows XP OS.
3. Price. This product used to cost a lot. Now it has dropped down to USD40. Which is great, because this very same product that is installed internally in Macs still cost USD45 for the option. Shouldn't an OEM product installed during production be cheaper? Furthermore, if it's installed internally then you cannot transfer it between computers. The external is cheaper and transferrable.
Cons:
1. The only difficulty I can think of is the implementation of the Bluetooth standard across products.
I love gadgets and find myself tinkering with anything technological so I usually don't have problems making one product operate with another.
The problem with Bluetooth is that there is no standard way to activate and access operation between products.

I would have given this item a 5 out of 5, except for the issue with generic windows driver installation with Win XP SP2 overwriting the D-Link driver during the initial setup process. Gives the user all sorts of weird error messages. You'll probably see one red and one blue Bluetooth "B's" in your system tray after the software installation.

The Solution (AFTER FINISHING THE INTIAL SETUP):

-Right-Click "My Computer"

-Select "Properties"

-Click "Hardware" tab

-Click "Device Manager"

-Drop down Bluetooth devices

-Right Click "Generic" one on the list

-Select "Properties"

-Click "Drivers" tab

-Click "Update Drivers"

-Select "Install from specified location"

-Select "Don't Search. I'll select..."

-Select "D-Link DBT-120 USB Bluetooth Adapter"

-Click "Next"

-And your Done!

You'll still need to setup the individual bluetooth devices by running the "My Bluetooth Places" wizard.

I bought this product for use with my Nokia 3650 (AT&T Wireless). Although the installation was somewhat difficult, the device works great.
Download the PC Suite software from Nokia's website and install it. PC Suite will not work until you connect the cell phone to the computer for the first time, so don't bother opening it yet. Install the D-Link software. Ignore the boxes stating that the software is not supported by Windows XP, it does work. Turn on your cell phone and turn on Bluetooth, leaving it within a reasonable distance of your computer. Make sure the Nokia software is told to search ALL BLUETOOTH COM PORTS to connect. This can be accomplished by opening the system tray program "mRouter" and selecting all the boxes. Pair the cell phone and computer using the D-Link software. If you are running a firewall, either turn it off or click yes when programs start asking for internet access. Then, connect the cell phone to the computer using "My Bluetooth Places" (D-Link Software). A box will come up stating that the cell phone is connected on COM Port 0. Click OK. Almost immediately, a box will come up saying "The Bluetooth Serial Port connection failed: The remote device closed the connection." Click OK and completely disregard the error message. Open up the Nokia software and it will work.
I give this product 4 stars only because of the error box that comes up whenever a connection is made. Otherwise, everything works fine. Believe me, I spent quite a while shopping for a Bluetooth adapter, this is the best choice. If you have a Nokia 3650, it is an absolute must-have.

This product is truly wonderful, if you wish to gain a deeper understanding of how your computer works and if you don't really value your own time.

D-Link has gone out of their way to keep you from using their product outside of your license, whatever that means. This is done by requiring the software to read from a "license file" before working properly. This system is made foolproof by not including this file.

Once you realize this and try to get the updated version on the D-Link website, be careful, there are several versions based on numbers on the back of the unit itself. At this point, their tech service website has detailed instructions on how to remove the old software and devices and install the new. This is quite a bit of fun. Removing the old software is easy, and then you get to use DOS! I can't remember the last time I had to enter information in a command line, but thanks to D-Link for helping me to reconnect.

Then you get to remove dozens (I had around 50) of devices this contraption has randomly created for you in the device manager, which must be removed individually and there is a pause after each one. Great for those uneventful parts of the middle of the day when you have nothing better to be doing.

After all of this (I have, if you can believe it, ommitted some steps), installing the new software gives the same problem. Not exactly the same, however, the new version now pops up 4 annoying little windows every few minutes before popping up the original 'no license file' window. This apparently is progress.

Good work by D-Link tech support noticing that a problem existed with the original software, but instead of fixing this problem in the newer version it is simply made more irritating.
