Excellent, versatile Bluetooth adapter!

Strengths: Very easy to use, plug and play, good range

Weakness: Size w/ antenna may be inconvenient for some

Excellent product that has helped me integrate my Palm PDA and Plantronics wireless headset for Voice Over IP (Skype) use! It was very simple to set-up and provides excellent range.

Linksys Bluetooth USB adapter

Strengths: It performs as advertised.

Weakness: None

Strengths: Easy to install and use, works well, good range.

Weakness: Antenna seems a bit flimsy.

Connected to my desktop on a rear USB port, so even though the antenna doesn't seem the most durable, it's really not an issue for me. I use it to connect with my Motorola cell phone - works flawlessly, even when the phone is in the next room about 30 feet away.
