5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to install and fully featured
I previously tried a cheaper Bluetooth dongle and found it lacked the Bluetooth profile (A2DP) needed for listening to music on Bluetooth headphones. This product supports the full range of Bluetooth profiles and is well worth the extra few pounds. Installation was really straight forward. (I'm using Windows 7).

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Broadcom
This is not a Broadcom device it is a CSR 8510 device with BlueSoleil software. Broadcom (Widcomm) software doesn't recognise the dongle. It does not work on Windows 8 x64 unless the Bluesoleil application sofware is installed. Without it, although Windows installs device drivers, a simple task such as transfering a photo from a smartphone cannot be accomplished. The...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Broadcom, 15 Aug 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 7dayshop Bluetooth 4.0 USB Mini Dongle/Adapter - Makes Your PC or Laptop Bluetooth Compatible with Bluetooth Headphones and Headsets, Speakers, Keyboards, Mice and Your Mobile Phone of Course. USe with Apple iPhone and Apple iPad, Samsung Galaxy, Nokia Lumia, Sony Xperia, HTC and Nexus etc. (Electronics)
This is not a Broadcom device it is a CSR 8510 device with BlueSoleil software. Broadcom (Widcomm) software doesn't recognise the dongle. It does not work on Windows 8 x64 unless the Bluesoleil application sofware is installed. Without it, although Windows installs device drivers, a simple task such as transfering a photo from a smartphone cannot be accomplished. The supplied software is version 8.x.x.x whereas the current version is 10.x.x.x.

One star for wasting my time.

Update:
The product description (now redacted) better describes the rival "Plugable" dongle. Better adapter for few pennies more. Reviewed on YouTube. :). Don't waste time on these monkeys.

Update2:
Since posting this the seller has changed the description on Amazon so that it no longer claims to be a Broadcom device. Although the same claims are still being made on their own website.

Update3:
The seller (7Dayshop) got Amazon to remove my negative feedback on the grounds that it was a product review and not feedback. Even though it was a single line stating "seller misrepresented product".

3.0 out of 5 stars Blue Soleil, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 7dayshop Bluetooth 4.0 USB Mini Dongle/Adapter - Makes Your PC or Laptop Bluetooth Compatible with Bluetooth Headphones and Headsets, Speakers, Keyboards, Mice and Your Mobile Phone of Course. USe with Apple iPhone and Apple iPad, Samsung Galaxy, Nokia Lumia, Sony Xperia, HTC and Nexus etc. (Electronics)
I installed the dongle using the supplied drivers CD.

This installed 'Blue Soleil 8'. I'm running 64bit Win7.

However, this is an evaluation copy only, and requires you to register it using a serial number. This serial number is not included in the packaging which I received, so I feel that the description 'Full Software CD' is misleading, to say the least.

Can't really say too much about this piece of it, if you gonna buy an item that runs on bluetooth then I suggest you purchase it for a piece of equipment that already has bluetooth attached or otherwise could be an expensive experience :-(

This is a great product which enables me to connect my laptop or desktop audio to a blue tooth speaker system. The drivers and additional software came on a mini cd disk which installed without any problems. I did need to restart my pc to get everything set up and connected but once done I was able to open the software and search for any blue tooth device which was connected and turned on in search mode.
