i got one of these last time they were posted and work well for me, really easy to set up :) i only paid for one but got two lol so even better for me :-D
#4
Not bad for £1.49 - this seems to get posted every time the exchange rate fluctuates!

HOT.
#5
i bought one a few months back for about £1.80 but after a week or so my computer stopped recognizing it, do you have to leave this plugged into your pc all the time cos i kept taking it out cos i was worried someone could hack into my pc
#6
Yeah I bought one of these, it worked once, managed to transfer a photo, went to try it again 5 minutes later only to find it didn't work. :x
#7
I ordered this prevoiusly, paid by paypal and it just didn't arrive, they had my money but kept revising stock date. Deal Extreme were less than helpful and I also screwed up my claim on Paypal so lost out on the whole order.

Caveat emptor etc., etc.

I bought one months ago too,i don't leave it plugged in i take it out all the time and only plug it in when i need it and i've had no problems with it,maybe its a bit hit and miss:?
#9
I bought one of these last time too, It's a bit flaky on Vista home premium 32bit. even using Bluesoleil software. :?
#10
using one of these on Windows 7 at the mo. It works a right treat.
#11
The software that came with it (BlueSoleil) keeps throwing up an error message saying that it already registered anf the file transfer size has been limited :whistling:
#12
Got last time. Works fine.

Great deal

Check that its the same USB port you first plugged it into and installed it your putting it back into, that can sometimes be the cause of problems depending on your PC setup.

I would take care with this. It seems that deal extreme has changed the chipset used in this mini bluetooth dongle and they aren't as good as they used to be. I know it's not much of a risk at £1.49 but I need to buy about a hundred of these things for work and can't risk buying from deal extreme any more as you don't know what you're going to receive.
#15
Bought one of these a few days ago. Great price, pretty quick delivery.

Shame it doesn't work, though. :whistling:

got one of these-works no probs :-) (on vista ultimate)
#18
Never did get this thing working... I have vista 64. The dongle comes with no drivers.

When I plugged it into my pc, it installed some drivers and I can see the bluetooth device, however when you try and connect something to it, it keeps asking for drivers - I've tried all of those listed on deal extreme and nothing worked :-(
#19
I have it on vista 64 too. I managed to get it working with my nokia 5800 by installing the nokia pc suite. It seems to work great for getting things from my pc to my phone but not so well in reverse. Hope that helps??
#20
I use it for getting pics from my phone onto the PC i'm on Windows XP i plug in the dongle and when it appears in my tool bar i click on "receive a file" and then send it via bluetooth from my phone to the dongle,although my phone has to be VERY close to the dongle for it to connect:thumbsup:
#21
I would want a BT dongle that works out of the box, not poor drivers to install.
Also this is a class 1, 100m card, which would hammer the power in a laptop or what ever.
You need a class 2 10m card to be honest.
Good price though, but I would not have a class 1 100m card.
#22
I've got two of these and they work perfectly straight out of the box. I just plugged it into my computer running Windows Vista and within 30 seconds it has self installed, same with Windows XP, no issues :)
#23
Will i be able to use this with my wireless mouse? as i have lost the little dongle for it?
#24
Depends whether its a bluetooth mouse :)

Please provide the drivers you used, windows 7 tells me it can't find the drivers for Bluetooth Peripheral Device.

Thanks.
#26
I got one of these a few weeks ago, and while it does work (barely lol) there are some niggles.

as some have suggested it came with no drivers and relied on windows to install them for you.
when windows did detect the device and set it up, i get irregular prompt boxes saying the installation was incomplete.

now while it does actually transfer files when paired with a phone. i have found that without proper drivers, it only allows you to send 1 file at a time, despite marking and sending many from the phone itself.

sometimes you also have to right click in the task tray and allow the PC to "receive files" before it sends.

overall, it's a bit fidgety, but will work - and at this price, is worth it just for the facility to transfer.
#27
Mine didn`t work , more tat from these
#28
I've had one if these for months and months and it works perfectly when I do need it.

But there is a lot of cheap, worthless electicals on DealExtreme; I've had some, and I may never buy anything from them again.

Correct. If you read the threads it's a complete lottery which one you get, and which software works with it and which doesn't. I'm not sure that they have changed the chipset: I think it's more a case of them using whatever they have at the time I couldn't get mine to work at all with Vista Ultimate, no matter what software I used. but it's now working fine with W7 RC. Explain that.
#30
Does this work with Linux (netbook)?

That is the problem. Some dongles use well known and tested chipsets (Broadcom) and others are just barely recognised as bluetooth devices with unknown vendor and hardware ids. I got a couple from DE back in the day - one works with all computers, the other only partially works with XP/Vista and only with the latest Bluesoleil drivers. The first one I ever bought, not from DE, refused to work with any operating system.

Not that it means anything, but I avoid the half moon shaped dongles in favour of the square ended ones.

Yeah same here. I tried to use it for transfering music to my phone but it will only transfer one song at a time which is totally irritating.

In the end I reverted back to using the phone's USB cable.

Well Bluetooth isn't exactly fast anyway ... probs better off with USB
#34
I bought three of these a couple of months ago and they're all working fine. One is connected to my (more or less) permanently-on XP desktop, one to an Ubuntu desktop and the third to an old Dell laptop running Linux Mint. I use Bluetooth mainly for A2DP audio, connecting to a Sony Bluetooth speaker I picked up from a post on HUKD. This works fine both under XP (using BlueSoleil) and Linux (using blueman and pulseaudio)
#35
Got a few of these about a year back and they all seem to work fine on numerous machine. Bargain!

I have had one for about 4 months now and it is never removed from the laptop, never had any problems whatsoever, cracking value. Managed to blue tooth pictures to my tv 2 floors above roughly 20 metres with no line of sight, worked a treat. Running Vista Premium.
