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.

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 all

by AJR on 8/28/2006

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. =) Read More
