I bought these on some deal a month or two ago. So far, it works great!

got one of these a while back.. Tiny, somewhat limited range.. works ok for voice stuff, not so well for OBEX and DUN/tethering...

For the price, can't beat it. I had no problems using this with a Palm TX.

These are nice if your laptop doesn't have bluetooth built in, but it doesn't come with drivers. If you have an older system, or a older install of XP, it may not install properly right away.

This thing works great with my Palm TX, and my phone. I haven't tried it with a earpiece, or a bluetooth keyboard or mouse.

Any one know if this works with Linux or the Wiimote?

Got one of these a little bit ago for much more. It works great! Use it for a mouse on a laptop that did not have it built in. The small size is perfect.

I'm also curious if it works with a Logitech keyboard

the same thing you can get at monoprice... yeah.. ok.

I have this, it works great on all my bluetooth stuff. Phone, keyboard, mouse, pda, etc.

That's a pretty good deal. Anything under 5 bucks, S&H is a good deal, BT is BT AFAIAC.

correction, you used to be able to get at monoprice.com.. but no longer... ebay is a friend.. With these guys you need to find a modified driver to actually let it do anything good. Normal obex stuff yeah it'll work.

@flibbertigibbet: I'm using i with win7, works like a charm, no driver issues, popped it in and walla - was up and running in seconds. WIN7 ROCKS!!!

I feel a little ripped off. I bought this during the woot-off for $3 + $5 shipping. oh well. great deal

FYI, I believe this is the same adapter sold for $2.28 with free shipping from dealextreme.com every day. The best part, it doesn't need any special software because it uses the native Windows bluetooth stack in Vista.. which is way better than other adapters I've used.

I've ordered from them three different times and the site's legit, but shipping can be real slow from Hong Kong.

Not only is $2.99 a great price including S&H, but if you do separate orders, you can use the coupon code again. Already had one for my laptop, got one now for my desktop and one for the boyfriend. Great deal.

You have to be a newsletter subscriber to get the coupon code $3 off.

I bought a couple of these recently for use with a Bluetooth headphone and a Bluetooth barcode scanner. The adapter supports both of those very well but since I don't stray more than about 12' from the PCs with these devices, I can't exactly speak for the range.

Great deal! Free shipping!

Now it's $6. There's a $5 one available though that looks like it would be easier to remove... http://www.meritline.com/mini-type-wireless-bluetooth-usb-adapter---p-27752.aspx

Just bought one. For $3 bucks, even if it doesn't work, it's only $3 bucks!

On Chinese sites for 2-3 bucks including free shipping via hong kong post....

So pardon my ignorance...if I get one of these to plug into a USB scanner or printer, will it connect with my IMac which has built in Bluetooth?

Just found this one for less at thedealbaker.com - $1.99 there!
