Looks like the coupon is dead, but it's still only $2.99+free shipping, not a bad deal.

Bought one of these from meritline several months ago. It worked so intermittently that it was unusable. I bout one for 4 bucks on ebay that works a charm. Save your money on this one.

@k87: no, i was kidding. i did buy a bunch of these before at around this price. i think i used one ever, on an older desktop

@k87: i have one and it works flawlessly with windows 7 64 bit...just plug it in and let it install the generic driver and it will work. do not install the driver on the website cause it will cause the intermittent problem another person commented on

@tank41683: Same here, plugged my 99 cent BT into a Win 7 machine and it works flawlessly. Add this with a headset and free Google Talk calls through the end of the year for easy free calling. :D

I bought a couple of these from a previous woot. One held up while the other ceased to function rather quickly. Later, the working adapter had intermittent problems and has since become completely unusable. While this is a cheap solution if you're in a pinch for bluetooth connectivity, I would wager that a higher quality (and more expensive) adapter is a far better option for extended use.

Anyone else getting a Runtime Error message when they try to put anything into the cart, or is it just me?

Is there a catch because it's too cheap?

You can get these for $0.99 or less on ebay all the time and the full driver is easy to come by. First, find out what hardware chip is used. On Linux, run 'lspci -v' and note the hardware chip and Dev/Ven codes. On windows, open up the device and get the "Dev/Ven" code (device mgr -> bluetooth (or unknown hw device) -> properties -> details -> hardware IDs dropdown). Second, with that info, go start googling for the best driver for that bluetooth chipset. You'll eventually find the full driver rather than the stripped driver usually given out with these devices. These are a great way to add bluetooth to laptops/PC's that don't come with BT built in.
