Answer: They are all the same device.
The GBU421WM is a Walmart version of the device.
The GBU421W6 has 3 different language support.
I've been using mine for a year for laptop audio, VOIP, transfering files between my laptop and my Blackberry 9730 without a problem. I just ordered a replacement. Unadvertised feature: They can cushion a Dell laptop falling 36 inches from a desk onto a concrete floor.
I starting off by installing the downloaded drivers from IOGear's website (avoided the drivers that were included with the adapter). Installation was a breeze, and after a reboot, I was ready to pair my sony bluetooth headphones (MW600). I put the MW600 in discover-able mode, and started the pairing process from my PC. the PC immediately detected the MW600, and gave me an option to pair with the same.
This is where my problems started. Whatever I did, I was unable to make it pair with the headphones. I kept getting the unknown error code, 0x800004005. I looked up the issue on various forums, tried different things including re-installing the drivers, completely removing the drivers and using Windows auto detect to find the drivers, but nothing seemed to work.
Then, I tried to set this up on my laptop that was running Windows 7 32bit. But this time, I refrained from installing any drivers, and let windows do its things to find the correct drivers. It did find the required drivers, and once all the drivers were installed, I was able to connect the headphones without any issues.
This led me to believe that the issue I'm having might be due to one of two things - Either the adapter doesn't work with the 64bit windows, or the OIGear drivers I installed messed something up.
Finally, I was able to make it connect after uninstalling all the old drivers, and install drivers downloaded directly from Broadcom([...]). I also had to switch the adapter to a different usb port.Read more ›
Enter this little gizmo, which is another version of one I had bought previously for our desk top computer. VERY easy to install via the disk reader and had ZERO problems hooking this up to both the speaker and my Samsung Galaxy Tablet. I've since bought 2 more, to give as small gifts to friends who needed Bluetooth on their computers but didn't know "how" to add it. I have three USB ports on my Dell so I just leave this dongle in permanently. It can be removed but because of it's tight fit and small size, it's a wee bit hard to remove it. So, in it stays; bonus is, you can't lose it if it stays plugged into your computer. :)
Packaging was professional and good; free shipping came in 3 days time. GREAT product for the money. :)

Works as intended. Smallness of it makes it a little hard to remove from USB ports though.Published 9 months ago by Logan V.

Can't say if this was good or bad since I returned this item.
Bought intensionally for a Bluetooth headphone which was not very good.
This works just fine, does what it's supposed to do.
Con: The head is a little too large and blocks the adjoining USB port on my laptop. Read more
