Works fine. Plug and play installation in Win 7. Didn't use the CD it came with. The windows drivers worked right out of the box. However, I did go and update the driver version to the latest manually by visiting the website URL specified in the packaging.

This product did not install properly - the software HUNG UP every time I tried to install it. Then, when using the control panel software removal tools, I could not delete it becuse the installation was incomplete. In its incomplete mode it could not retain the information on it services settings on reboot. When trying to reinstall the program it would stop, indicating that it could not proceed because a previous installation was in progress. Truly a catch twentytwo - you can't delete it and can't reinstall it for same reason "the previous installation is incomplete. After observing the install files in Task Manager Processes I was able to figure out which files to delete (always dangerous). This allowed the program to go into an undocumented mode where it started to delete the previous installation before it restarted the install process. I was able to stop the re-install process after it deleted the previously installed files, and then use the control panel's uninstall tool to delete this hellish software. Nowhere in the documentation is a mention of an uninstall method. I am taking this product back to store to get my money back. Too bad I won't be able to get my time back - that I wasted on this poorly design software.I replaced this unit with one that was 9$ vs the [$] Targus unit (both units had the small form factor). The 9$ unit worked with the native XP BT drivers and does everything that the Targus unit claims at less than half the price(and far less installation and uninstallation time).Finally - DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIMME OR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT.

Bluetooth 4.0 Connectivity

By G. Milner

Comments about Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter:

This little dongle made my two year old laptop Bluetooth enabled. I can now connect wireless with a variety of devices within thirty three feet. Installation is simple and all instructions with drivers come with the product. All you need is an available USB port on your device to be on your way. These adapters are not proprietary adapters that many companies produce to enhance their specific electronic products by enabling communication between one and another via Bluetooth technology. This adapter is made to be a universal Bluetooth 4.0 that can be installed in most all computers USB port. So before you purchase this item with the intent to replace a branded Bluetooth adapter that was specifically made to pair to products made by the same manufacturer together you should do your research on compatibility.

Bluetooth

Comments about Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter:

Product installed easily and works fine. Windows 8 makes it complicated to run the application, but when found it works well.

This is an inexpensive solution to add bluetooth to a PC. It is the most efficient way for me to download pictures from my phone.

Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter works well

Comments about Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter:

This adapter is 1/4 the size of the old one it replaces, which means I don't have to remove it to put my laptop in its carrycase.

Saved the Day!

Comments about Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter:

For a minute there I thought I had to buy a new computer. The internal bluetooth died in my computer. I didn't have time to order an external bluetooth device. I'm using my computer wirelessly every day in my job as a court reporter in the courtroom. Luckily when I got to Staples they had exactly what I needed, the Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter. It's been working ever since and I couldn't be more happy. Pleased that it's extremely small, also.
