Top Customer Reviews
This Bluetooth Adapter was very easy to install using the supplied Broadcom Driver Installation CD, & Quick Start Guide that came with the product. Even though this was my 1st time to try installing a new Blootooth Device (A VXi BlueParrott 203100 B250-XT+ 95% Noise Canceling Bluetooth Headset) once I read the directions the installation was finished automatically. Great Product & Service.
Update: Aug 25th, 2016: As I was pulling this out from the usb slot it detached itself in two pieces. I can say this is very cheap quality and that the bluetooth resulted in keyboard mishaps as well. I will be looking for a new BT adapter of better quality.
I got a new HP computer (desk top) with Win 8.1 and a built in Blue Tooth. It was great. I could connect to my Samsung G-3 and move pictures back and forth etc. Wow! Great feature, thought I would add that to my other computers with one of these. Wrong!
I have spent hours on this thing trying to get it to work. It connects then disconnect within 60 seconds. It took a hour or two to get the software to install and not lock up my computer. It sees the phone, pairs OK but then disconnects. I finally get it to comment but then can't move files like I could with my other computer.
I have tried it on three of my 11 computers I have at home. Same results on all of them. Maybe it would allow a keyboard or something like that but it sure isn't "full featured" like the unit that came with my HP. It won't do what I needed to do and what my other Blue tooths will do. I have worked through all the software it came with, no help. Oh, and was that software ever difficult to get my Vista computer to load. It took over an hour and many attempts and reboots to get it in. Lots of WIndows error messages and "contact the maker" messages.
Well, it was $10 so I am not out too much. It would cost more to send it back than its worth. I blew $10 and three or four hours of my time on this. Next time I want to throw away $10 and three hours i will go see a movie and at least might be entertained for my money. This unit was much less than entertaining to deal with.
