    Yesterday I received this USB BT dongle in the mail, I ordered it based on a positive post earlier in this forum.
    Actually the unit that was shipped,(free) was not the one in the photo but an even smaller unit.
    True to form as indicated in the earlier post this dongle worked right out of the gate, no drivers required, detected and paired with my magic mouse and Macally BT keyboard.
    All in all a good cheap upgrade if you want Blue Tooth.

    I've actually had the same old Kesington BT adapter for probably close to 10 years and just like yours it works flawlessly. That one is surprisingly small. You may want to alert possible users as to what OS, etc you are using.

    Good idea, even I know that.
    Anyhow I'm using this dongle on a G5 quad power mac running Os X 10.5.8, and it is sweet!

    I tried this dongle and it didn't work. Apparently there are two versions of this dongle, I got the one that didn't work.

    I also have a BT dongle which looks exactly like this. Works flawlessly, but has a somewhat flimsy build quality.
