Iogear GBU521 Bluetooth 4.0 - Bluetooth Adapter for Computer - USB - 3 Mbps - 2.48 GHz ISM - 30 ft Indoor Range - External

The IOGEAR Bluetooth 4.0 USB Micro Adapter offers Bluetooth connectivity at a fraction of the size of normal Bluetooth USB adapters. About the size of an adult fingernail, the IOGEAR Bluetooth 4.0 USB Micro Adapter allows users to connect to all the latest Bluetooth devices like cell phones, PDAs, mice, keyboards and more. Because the IOGEAR Bluetooth 4.0 Micro Adapter is so small you can easily plug it into your computer without blocking any surrounding USB ports.

Needed a bluetooth antenna because i wanted to try my luck with a PS4 controller for my PC gaming. This dongle does what it is suppose to do but due to driver issues with broadcom it is hard to get the PS4 controller working wireless, oh well.

If I walk between the laptop that has the bluetooth plugged in it and the speaker 6' across from it, I'll often hear a slight gap in the music. But it does the job and you can't beat the price!

Works well with my win7 x64 ultimate. Radiation pattern has dead spots where your head will be in the way of the Tx and Rx signals. So it cuts out in the right position, and from there on, the audio of the movie you were watching while wearing your Bluetooth headset, will become out of sync more and...

I managed to get mine working on my desktop, but it required some fiddling. If anyone is having trouble getting their device to work, I suggest following this link and these instructions: [...

Using it for OSX and works out of the box. Highly recommended for someone who needs a way to connect a Magic Mouse, Apple Keyboard or Trackpad to a non-Bluetooth enabled device.

it adds Bluetooth to my desktop computer and allows me to transfer and share files easily. I can play music from my PC to a Bluetooth speaker and not worry about a phone call interrupting it like what happens with my cell phone.

Needed this for a remote console setup involving two 27 monitors, and optical thunderbolt cable, and a Mac Pro. The thunderbolt monitors don't include a bluetooth radio, so I needed something else.

Works pretty okay for a keyboard. Awful for mouse. Terrible for headphones. The connection isn't crystal clear even if putting the USB close to the devices. It's not smooth. Keyboards are fine but I do find a LG every once in a while.

I can't comment on the bundled software because I never used it. I just plugged it in and Bluez and the rest of the Raspbian Bluetooth stack recognized it. I paired it with both my phone and my tablet, added rfcomm to systemd, and was able to use it to log in from BlueTerm on my Android phone and...

This little product does exactly what it is described to do. However, if you also have a Logitech unifying USB adapter they may collide. My wireless trackball pointer goes totally berserk if both adapters are present and connected.
