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.

Great for laptops

Comments about Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter:

Positives:

• Low-profile - It is so small it is hardly noticeable on the side of my laptop. Just a little bump on the side.

• Works right out of the box - Just plug it in to your computer and it starts working right away.

• No extra software needed - The makers of this product don't make you install any proprietary drivers or unnecessary bloatware just to use their product. It includes a CD but I didn't even use it.

Negative:

• Blue light - I don't know why they decided to add a blue light to the adapter, but it's there. It doesn't work any better or worse for it being there, but it's just there. But, if you are planning to put it in the back of a desktop computer or something like that you won't even notice it.

    Comments about Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter:

    We bought the bluetooth adapter to connect a lego mindstorm. I haven't had time to trouble shoot. I don't know if the problem is our computer, the operating system, the driver, the firmware or the software. But it took us a while to make it work (1hr) which seems like an eternity when your ten year old is breathing down your neck.Finally it work an we can download the program that he wrote and used in remote control. But then it stops working.

    Pros

    • Easy setup

    Cons

    • Don't Use With Usb Hub

    Best Uses

      Comments about Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter:

      I purchased this adapter to use with a Bluetooth mouse. The setup for Windows 8.1 was easy. The performance of the product meets or exceeds expectations with one exception. The adapter should be plugged directly into the computer. If you use a USB hub the functionality will intermittently cease.
