This is NOT the latest and greatest. Since this came out Bluetooth has moved on by two major revisions; BT 3 and BT 4. No false claims are made, this is a BT 2.1 + EDR device, but the buyer should be aware of this. iPhone 4 for example uses Bluetooth 4.
The installation instructions are different between the quick start (paper) guide and the full pdf guide included on the mini CDROM. The paper guide says run the installer BEFORE inserting the dongle, the pdf guide says the reverse. Following the paper guide I got generic atheros drivers installed, following the pdf guide I got the Asus branded drivers. It seemed to work in both cases however.
The paper guide says the CDROM will autorun on insertion. Not necessarily of course, depending on your setup it may or may not. If it doesn't you can double click on autorun.exe in the root of the CDROM. However while this runs, I couldn't make it run the driver installer, and ended up doing this manually too.
Works perfectly with Motionjoy software(this allows you to use ps3 controllers with your PC)
I'm using it to use a "Playstation Move Navigation Controller" with my PC as a left handed controller when using a mouse with FPS game - works perfectly.
If it can run this software it should be able to deal with anything else you can throw at it!
It works with Vista and windows 7 too (both 32 bit and 64bit).
I've had no problems connecting any device to my pc with this dongle at all.
I've played music from my phone to my speakers too... without the use of extra software.
A great product.
ps: I did read the other reviews and was a little worried, however the device works perfectly.
However Asus do not develop Microsoft Windows, so dont peanlise them for something they dont write! just rate the product!!
I am currently using it for two things:
1) To connect my ps3 gamepad to my PC (motionjoy drivers). Works like a charm.
2) Connect my intuos 4 wacom tablet wirelessly with the default Windows 7 Bluetooth drivers. Couldn't be better.
Beware: I had the cheaper Belkin Mini Bluetooth Adapter from Amazon and it started acting up very soon after the purchase. It caused BSOD on my PC and sometimes it would not get recognized by my tablet. Had to throw it away and I am happy I replaced it with this!
100 meters seems nonsense for any bluetooth device so don't expect that. Works good and I'm not dissapointed at all.
You get all the drivers on a disc, no problems with windows7.
