    I'm looking to add a bluetooth Module to my Mac Pro (specs in sig) which never came with bluetooth. I'd like to use the internal Module as I have few USB ports left for things even with use of USB hubs.
    I've only seen the internal Module for sale at places like eBay, Fastmac, and Amazon sellers. I know eBay can be a little on the riskier side, but at the same time I've never dealt with the amazon sellers or Fastmac before. Fastmac is the cheapest I've seen, so I guess what I'm asking is: Has anyone worked with Fastmac before? Are they a reputable supplier of Mac parts?

    Summary for those who don't want to read:
    Want bluetooth module for mac pro, not USB. Fastmac is cheapest.
    Is Fastmac reliable/reputable?

    Can't comment on Fastmac but if you have any indie Mac specialist shops in the area (one that does servicing) then head in to one of those and ask them to see you the bluetooth part for your model. They don't usually list it and they're not really supposed to sell them but they often will. It might even be worth a try with a genuine Apple store.

    That's how I upgraded my Mac Pro a few years ago. Didn't cost much either.

    Fastmac is fine. You can buy the bluetooth gizmo with confidence. I just got an iPhone case they make and its cool.
