Not sure, I done a search for it prior to posting. Credit due to whoever found this before then! Still a crazy price, I dunno how deal extreme do it. Maybe they wait until they have a large number of UK orders before they ship then all at once?

You're right, looks like it hasn't been posted as a deal but it has been mentioned before cos I bought a couple.

Nice find - head & rep addedd.... thats 1 cheap dongle!!!

Worth a gamble, gone for one.

Will this work with a bluetooth headset?

I've ordered from this company before and have been pleased. Delivery didn't came too long. I think it shipped from HK.

I have actually bought this, and it seems to work mostly okay on Vista, but cannot find drivers for some of the profiles.

However, I can connect my mobile phone and transfer data between it and my PC, which is what I bought it for, so it suits me perfectly.

For this kind of silly money, it's definitely worth a punt!

the link shows that this is a referral - is the OP or HUKD that benefits from referrals here..?

Cons: * Comes with Chinese software which as it turns out is completelly useless if you're European or American. You may buy the English version of this soft but it costs extra $7 i think. Although there are good alternatives which you can use and which i did.

I bought this a while ago as well, and because of the software never really used it.
Can you tell me of the better software I can use on it.

Handy for putting games on the phone.

:x as someone says, if this ships from Hong Kong then Deal Extreme are the ones who are refering. There has been about 10 amazin posts about Deal Extreme as of late, are you suggesting they are making money out of this?

If you are not sure of the source please suggest somewhere the same item can be found cheaper:thumbsup:

many thanks, ordered and heat added!

great, another guaranteed hot deal extreme item...

just accept that all their stuff is a bargain and bookmark them / make a single thread of deals!

Will it make my laptop a bluetooth laptop?

You shouldn't need to use any bundled software at all. :oops:

Windows users: when you plug the device in and Windows asks for drivers, just get to the option where it asks for a location to look for drivers and just select the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) with the bundled CD inside. Windows will use the drivers included on the CD and you won't need to use any of the included software to get it working. This works for pretty much every USB device- great if you don't want all the useless programs installing and CPU-consuming programs opening at start-up.

Windows, Linux and OS X all have support for full Bluetooth operations by default...

I'm not exactly sure as to what you think a "bluetooth laptop" is, but it'll let you interface with any Bluetooth device (mobile phones, headsets, mobile devices) and, depending on the device you're interfacing with (obviously), you can send files to and from the device from your computer, play music over a headset/headphones or connect to the internet via your mobile phone (great if you have an unlimited data plan with your mobile network *cough* 3 UK */cough*).

Hope that helps a tad

nice deal - thanks for posting

Cheerz,

Handy for getting pics on E-Bay when using the old beast of a PC at home.
