Small, but still protrudes 1cm – Super Mini Bluetooth 2.0 Adapter Dongle (Vista Compatible) Reviews

posted by kdeal on 04/24/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Worked with my laptop right off. Compatible with the IVT bluetooth software I had installed from a previous (larger) dongle that included full-featured software. It is small enough that it can stay plugged in and my laptop fits in the case.
Cons:
There is no software included. Apparently under XP the drivers were already present (i.e. plug-and-play).

NOTE: you will still need software for transferring data to/from your cellphone or PDA.

NOT QUITE AS SMALL as I had pictured it. The black plastic part does not sit flush against the side of my laptop: You can see about 2mm of the silver USB connector sticking out, leaving the entire device about 1cm out the side of my laptop.
Other:
I wanted to be able to leave this plugged into the side of my laptop and not worry about removing it to fit in my case.

I think the device is small enough that neither the device nor the laptop usb connector will be damaged by leaving it in.
Bottomline:
Great price, no software, pretty small.
