Overall I am happy with my purchase and I think this is a quality product.
I also want to add some information that can be deemed useful by future buyers of this Bluetooth adaptor:
Two characteristics you may want to consider when purchasing a Bluetooth adaptor are its data transmission speed and its range.
The data transmission speed of a Bluetooth adaptor (a.k.a. dongle) depends on the adaptor's protocol version. The products that sell today are either Version 1.1, 1.2 or 2.0, with the last two being more dominant. Version 1.2 operates at speeds up to 0.7 Mb per second and Version 2.0 operates at speeds up to 2.1 Mbps (3x Version 1.2 speed).
Bluetooth adaptors also have a 'Class' rating which determines their range.Read more ›
It's a bluetooth 2.0 device, so there is a nice strong signal to connect to (of course, the other device should be 2.0 as well to take advantage of the extended range), and it fits well next to other USB devices on my computer (unlike some other dongles I have bought in the past that nearly take up two ports worth of width).
Overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking to add Bluetooth to their home or mobile pc.
If you're looking for a BT dongle that is small and looks pretty, this is not the one for you. However, none of the other BT adapters will yield better connectivity and user friendliness than this one. Considering that far inferior BT dongles than this one are sold for higher prices, this is a great buy. I'm sure the performance you can get out of it will easily overrule the form factor.
It works great no problems when installing and has fast conection (USB port 2.0)
