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 way to update or expand a laptop

By Brian

Comments about Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter:

When this device is plugged into a computer's USB port (and the software loader) it gives the computer USB 4.0 (the latest version) bluetooth capability.. If your computer doesn't have bluetooth or, like mine, one of the older vess capable and more power hungry versions this is an easy upgrade. Installed easily, works great, recommended. There are similar bluetooth USB devices for substantially less money but this has the Toshiba software "stack" which has the reputation of being stable, reliable and likely to work in most computers.

Connects to everything

Comments about Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter:

I bought this so I could connect Bluetooth devices to my desktop. It installed quickly and easily, following the simple instructions. I was able to find my Bluetooth speakers, iPod, headphones, mini boombox speaker phone. Now I intend to purchase a set of Bluetooth keyboard and mouse so I can free up some more USB ports to eliminate using a hub which occupies a port and more importantly an outlet which are hard to come by near my desktop computer. Now I can use my speaker phone through Skype and still have speakers working for sounds while gaming.

Can't make it work

Comments about Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter:

I have a hp pavilion terabyte computer purchased from Staples which I use with a usb connected earphones. I wanted the freedom of movement wireless earphones would provide.

I am unable to make the blue tooth Adapter connect with the wireless Logitech earphones I bought.

There may be some way to make it work, but it is too illusive for me.

Very disappointing experience.
