This mini 2.0 USB Blue Tooth dongle has potential but the bundled software ruins it. I paid about 5-6 bucks (including shipping) for it - the reseller had it to me in record time. At this price point, really, there was not much for me to lose and my expectations were not that high.

The dongle ships in a plastic pack with a mini CDROM. The mini CDROM has software (Bluesoleil 2.6.0.8) that enables Blue Tooth features that go beyond the basic Windows XP Blue Tooth capabilities, including A2DP (stereo music).

The dongle is tiny. I have an Acer Aspire One netbook and the dongle barely juts out from the side of the netbook - a clear improvement over my Targus Blue Tooth USB dongle, which is 1 1/2 inches long. This improvement, however, was the only improvement to be found.

When using this USB dongle in a Windows XP environment, you really have two choices:

1) Plug it in and let XP detect and install a generic Blue Tooth driver for the device
2) Install the Bluesoleil software

If you go with the XP drivers, you are going to be able to use a decent and stable set of features, such as a reliable Blue Tooth mouse connection.

If you go with the Bluesoleil software, it opens up the functionality of the device and provides additional features that the XP drivers don't support, such as stereo music.

The problem is, the Bluesoleil software is not good. The user interface is ugly and non-intuitive. You'll just have to install it to see for yourself. Additionally, the software is, by design, crippled. Per the help menu, patches and upgrades will cost you. You can purchase a full version that, among other things, removes the data transfer speed-cap so that you can listen to MP3s without hiccups.

First unit received had a manufacturing defect that prevented the dongle from being attached to the usb port.

The replacement could not pair with other devices using Microsoft's bluetooth driver on XP(sp3) clean install. It also did not work with Microsoft's bluetooth driver on Vista x64. Also tried ubuntu linux 9.04 and also did not work.

After troubleshooting in ubuntu, the system log revealed that the device shuts down and restarts each time the bluetooth radio is used. And that was the apparent cause of pairing failures.

update: the device doesn't appear to use the Broadcom 2045 Chipset as stated in the detailed description. I installed the WIDCOMM bluetooth driver from Broadcom and it doesn't recognize the device.

I know you're tempted by a bargain (I was!), but put the money towards a better adapter.

This might work for some, but on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine, the default drivers from Windows Update don't work (can't get through the pairing process). The version of BlueSoleil shipped with the product is obsolete and also doesn't work. BlueSoleil does have a nice working version on their website, but to get a full version without the shady data transfer limit, you'll need to shell out another $20 or so, at which point it's no longer worth it. Lastly either the dongle is NOT based on a Broadcom chipset, or Broadcom didn't write any 64-bit drivers, but their Bluetooth setup utility cannot detect the device either.

I feel like maybe if I keep digging around the web I'll eventually figure it out, but at this point I'm ready to throw in the towel. At least it's only a couple bucks down the drain.

I was concerned since these were so cheap. I figured they might not work well or work with Windows 7, 64 bit. My worries, however, were groundless. My PCs were immediately recognized as was my bluetooth headset. I especially like these because they are tiny and hardly noticeable, they fit nicely in your USB ports. I do advise you to put it directly into the PC and not a hub. It seems that when you put it in a hub it sometimes fails to get discovered. That doesn't happen when you put it in the PC. However, one of mine is in a hub and works just fine. So you should experiment to see which is best for you.

If you need bluetooth in your PC and don't have it, this is a quick, cheap way to get it. No need for an expensive adapter. Highly recommended.

I bought this to replace my large Kensington adapter since this is much smaller and I could leave it in the laptop. It works OK for a mouse or keyboard, but not stereo headset. If you simply want to connect a bluetooth mouse (I recommend the Microsoft Notebook Mouse 5000) there are few choices this small and inexpensive. If you want to run more than a mouse, look elsewhere as this adapter cannot handle multiple connections and everything studders and skips.

I run Windowws XP, which has basic capability to support a mouse, but not advanced profiles like headset with microphone or stereo headset. So you can just plug it in and let windows recognize it, you do not need to use the driver CD. The Driver CD includes a very old version of BlueSoleil software (V 1). This will add additional bluetooth profiles to Windows XP. I tried this software to enable my Plantronics 855 stereo headset. I was able to pair but playback was studdering, and unusable if I moved the mouse at the same time. My old Kensington 333348 adapter worked flawlessly with both devices.

If you prefer Widcomm software over BlueSoleil you are out of luck, as Widcomm only supports their own Broadcom chipsets. This adapter uses Cambridge Silicon Radio hardware, so you are stuck with BlueSoleil for advanced profiles in Windows XP. BlueSoleil wants you to upgrade the free software on the CD (V 1) to the latest (V 6) for $20. Version 6 is very good, to bad this is not distributed with the adapter.

The package states 300 foor range, which is a class 1 transmitter. Your device must also be a class 1 to reach this limit. All my devices are Class 2 (30 feet), so I was not able to test the claim. My devices worked to 30 feet successfully.

Bottom line, this tiny, inexpensive adapter will work fine for a mouse with or without the driver CD in Windows XP. While adequate for simple needs it cannot stream stereo audio without skipping.
