Customer Reviews of IOGEAR Bluetooth Adapter - 1 x Type A Male USB
it is working fine with my laptop and desktop too....
I got this product a couple of weeks back. Faced no issues in installation. Data transfer is very decent. Definitely worth a buy.
It works for me10/7/2006
Works on my WindowsXP to connect to my LG VX8100 cell phone. I can save all address books using BitPim, faster than the serial cable I used before. I saw previous reviews and installed their software plug into my computer. I also tried to get the VoIP working with my IOGear headset but not successful. But that's not a requirement for me and may be I need to install IOGear drivers for the headset.
Works great, even for headsets...8/29/2006
I bought this adapter and then happened to read the review above, in which it was claimed that this adapter does not support bluetooth headsets.....beg to differ, works just fine with headsets too. Just be careful not to connect the adapter when the setup asks you too.....go thru the full setup w/o connecting the adapter to the PC, restart your machine and then only connect. I happned to miss reading this instruction on the installation manual....but anyways, managed to recitfy this mistake in an hour using google search on how to override microsoft drivers with the widcomm ones. And, I am now all set with the iogear GBE211 headset with Skype and Yahoo messengers.
Not bad at all8/28/2006
The only reason I gave the 'easy of use' rating, is because if you are going to be intalling this on XP, watch out. the directions are mixed up. Plug first, then CD... google it, you'll see. Other than that: i love it. i just bought another one infact to put my wifes laptop to work (wifi wise). Love it, you will too. You'll hate the install, but love the devise. =)

I bought this adapter for use with my Mac Mini, since there are very few Mac compatible external BT adapters. Installing it was easy; plugging it in, OSX 10.4.2 immediately saw it and let me configure it. I was able to find my Moto v551, too, and trade files with it. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the Iogear GB201 headset I also bought here, using it - the software says this adapter does not support handsfree or headset. So it's crippled compared to other adapters. While headset use is not the major reason why I bought this, I'm still very disappointed.
