This tiny device, about the size of a thumbnail, plugs into a USB socket, and allows bluetooth equipped mobile phones, speakers and other devices to connect to your PC. It has a bright blue LED to indicate functionality and this all the protrudes from the PC's USB socket no more about 3/8th of an inch or so.

It supports the new Bluetooth 4.0 protocol (the same as bluetooth 3 but has a low power consumption mode). Drivers and support software are supplied on a mini CD and this also links directly to the support website upon installation.

The install seemed to go OK for me and Windows 7 recognized the new device. However, I did then have problems trying to connect to external bluetooth devices. I was also unable to access the Bluetooth control panel on my PC. After playing about with the drivers and updating Windows 7's bluetooth stack and downloaded the latest Trust drivers from their website suddenly after a restart it all started working. I cannot say for sure if the issue lay with my previous configuration of Windows or with the supplied CD drivers.

Anyway, all seems to be working well now. I am able to play music from my iPhone 4, use a set of Bluetooth headphones, and detect my Roku box remote control.

Assuming the initial driver issues were caused by pre existing problems with my operating system then I would be happy to recommend this little device.

The Good
Supports the latest Bluetooth 4.0 protocol
Bright LED indicates operation
Basic software and drivers supplied on mini CD
Good build quality
Great price

The Bad
Easily lost or mislaid
Possible problems with the driver installation
No third party software supplied
No Mac support (although this may be natively supported in MacOs X)

Bought this on pre-order as I was keen to get the latest bluetooth 4.0 and downloaded the latest drivers from the Trust website which gave me a country or territory error (I'm in the UK) but I managed to bypass this by loading the drivers from another part of the install package. Everything looked OK in device manager and the PC recognises the module fine except I am able to see and connect to bluetooth devices but unable to get them to do anything or control their connection so perhaps the install isn't complete. I emailed Trust who replied to a couple of emails but then forgot about them or got bored which is not confidence inspiring with a new product just launched and there is no phone line and only very basic troubleshooting available on their website. The kind that is only of any use to complete novices. I think I'm going to have to return this but it's Sunday and I'll work on it this afternoon and see if I can get it working. I'm fairly technical so no idea how anyone like my parents would be expected to get this to work.

Update:

OK, installed the latest stack and transferred files to my phone but cannot connect to bluetooth audio on the Hifi. Still got some patience in me, will try again in a few days.

Update II:

Trust got back to me after a couple of weeks with this:

"Seem to us, the issue you get is related to the fact that 18187 - Bluetooth 4.0 USB adapter does not support Hands free profile.

Headset profile is supported.

We apologies for any inconveniences."

Not overly impressive.

Update III:

Thanks to the comment below I tried repeating my earlier steps and to my pleasant surprise the device is now working.

Works fine on my netbook, Windows 7 but doesn't work on my almighty powerful windows 7 pc.

Bought an adapter from a catalogue shop which did not work on Windows 8.1. What a waste of money and no refund. This one works perfect. Fully recommended.
