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.
Adding Bluetooth to your laptop or other usb device is great works seamlessly just plug it in and connect that way now I can use my headset, keyboard and cell phone with my laptop wow where's this been all my life makes sharing files simple and quick
Plug in to usb if your device already had software built in no nd for disc if not insert disk download included software
Go to Bluetooth settings and connect your device no more sitting at a uncomfortable desk I'll be surfing.on.the coach tonight !!! Oh yes.
When I installed it on my tower computer I plugged it in and immediately ran the software disk. The Bluetooth adapter has a small blue LED on it that immediately came on and indicated that the unit was operating. I did not let my Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit Operating System look for drivers as I wanted to see how the installation software performed and I wanted to test the full features available with the accompanying software. The installation was fast and easy and within a few minutes it was ready to operate. I immediately turned on my Bluetooth iPhone and the computer asked if I wanted to link to my iPhone. The software knew the name of my computer and iPhone and it couldn't have been easier.
1. My computer asked me if I wanted this iPhone to be able to be connected and if I trust this device and user.
2. After my device connected the software automatically added the device and checked to see if any additional drivers needed to be installed.
3. It wanted to know if I wanted to allow music and audio to be streamed through my computer
4. It wanted to know if I wanted to use the computer as a headset and speakerphone for calls
5. You can also make setting adjustments to have both visual and audio notification when a Bluetooth device becomes connected to your computer.
6. Once you have connected all of your Bluetooth devices that you want to use you can disable Bluetooth discovery to increase the security of your computer and its Bluetooth connection capability.
7. There are also other settings on the side of the interface screen that allow you to turn off the Bluetooth adapter if you would like to.
8. This is a powerful and complete set of software tools to use the Bluetooth adapter and make sure that you are securely set up and operating.
I was able to stream music from my iPad or iPhone immediately and the music was high quality and it played flawlessly. I was able to get 40 feet away and shooting through multiple walls I never lost the signal.
It is a very low power device and the adapter does not get hot at all. It will connect to Bluetooth mice, keyboards, headsets, speakers, printers, modems, smart phones and tablets and it has the latest Bluetooth 4.0 standards. You can also use Bluetooth phone headsets and use it for VOIP and Skype.
What's in the box?
* A brief instruction manual
* A micro USB Bluetooth adapter that is very small
* An installation software disk
This is an excellent product and I strongly recommend it. I rated it at 5 stars.
I received a sample product for test and evaluation and I promised only to provide a fair and honest review.
First install the CD and follow the instructions to install the WIDCOMM software - it only takes a couple of minutes. After restarting your computer you are ready to pair your first Bluetooth device. I wanted to connect my iPhone 5 so I would be able to listen to my iTunes via my work desktop's speakers. I went to my iPhone's Bluetooth menu and saw the name of my work computer. I clicked on it to pair and a bubble instantly popped up my computer to allow the device to connect. It was that fast and easy to connect!
The menu interface is user-friendly and a nice feature to keep track of what devices that are connected. One thing to keep in mind is that under the "Devices and Printers" on my computer it was labeled "BCM920702 Bluetooth 4.0", while on Bluetooth discovery mode on my iPhone it was named by workstation name which is "Zulma WorkT8".
This little gadget is awesome to say the least. Why spend more on a Bluetooth card and the aggravation of taking your computer apart when this little tiny adapter does the exact same thing.
It is not a plug and play adapter, but maybe this is the reason why it is such a stable Bluetooth adapter because it comes with it's own software.
Disclosure: I was given a sample to test and evaluate in exchange for an honest unbiased review.
