DealExtreme: Super Mini Bluetooth Adapter 2.0 (Compatible with Vista) (Super Mini Bluetooth 2.0 Adapter Dongle (Vista Compatible))

The review today is on Super Mini Bluetooth Adapter 2.0 (Compatible with Vista) (Super Mini Bluetooth 2.0 Adapter Dongle (Vista Compatible)), that came in latest packages of DealExtreme. As its title indicates, this adapter is very small, excluding it has only USB plug 9 extensão millimeters, 18 millimeters in length and 7 height mm, and with its rounded shape is very discreet. The price of 2,78 U.S. dollar (frete included) is also unbeatable.

During the activity is possible to observe a red LED inside, because the plastic is semi-translucent. The packaging stated that it is a “Bluetooth 2.0”, “Windows Vista Ready” and supports voice data. Windows Vista x64 it was automatically detected, the default drivers were automatically installed and he went to work, detecting my phone and enabling the connection with him, using the Nokia Software, and also for sending and receiving files using only the standard Windows functions.

The nominal range is up 100 meters (class 1) but this should hardly be true, in my experience the signal goes through some walls, reaching at least a dozen meters, but of course it also depends on the scope of the other device. To ensure it is better to rely only on the scope inside the room where it is, which should be sufficient for most purposes for which it is intended bluetooth.

Inside the package also came a mini-CD with BlueSoleil version 2.6.0.8, as é 2007 and, therefore, is already quite outdated. As I was never a big fan of this software (that has caused me problems in the past), I was not behind a newer version and am satisfied with the same Windows stack. And it is unlikely that he accepted a newer version, as for its price it certainly should not have license to use the BlueSoleil, um like ele, more licensed, costs 30 Euros on site BluSoleil.

The package also not behind any brand manufacturer, and Windows identifies only as “Generic Bluetooth Radio”, and identifies the manufacturer as being “Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd.”, I do not know to what extent this information is reliable, mas was what appeared.

As I had already purchased a Bluetooth dongle long ago on eBay, I decided to leave it on my old PC and put the one that came on my DX printer, which is an HP C6180, which have USB interfaces natively, Ethernet e Wi-Fi 802.11g, in addition to already be ready for Bluetooth, simply connect a dongle into a USB port, it also serves to connect digital cameras and use the PictBridge standard, which allows direct printing machine. With the dongle connected the printer begins to accept bluetooth connections to PCs and / or laptops and print normally. You can also print directly from mobile phones, but could not do it, although the printer detects the phone informs that there is no compatible printers, but that games are probably due to some incompatibility between my phone (Nokia 6131) and to impressora, seen that my PC usually managed print.

And I close my review leaving some photos:

Fabricio, tú deu so, a guy in dx explains that this adapter comes with two LED bluettoth: ora green, sometimes red, Who gets the green led, the bug only works on windows xp with bluesoleil and who gets the LED vermelhor, xp recognizes the good.

Good for thee had problems with blusoleil.

I bought another adapter, more sincerely, I do not think this all the bluesoleil, so I bought this one you bought to put on my work pc… after reading what the guy said red light, if it is red light, I leave it at home and take the green light po bluesoleil work.

Fabricio, I was the same price and got lucky, purchased equal to its What is even more likely to be red light. Look below, understanding hair, the guy said that even if you bought, can see green or red. The DX did not mess, when I said I bought another green light that came, another model was, not these tiny, foi o sku.24. I think the DX is that you do not know what is green or red, or they are not reading the packaging to separate… It was my first experience with bluetooth, e Achei Aquele bluesoleil um lixo, by RED that I pick up to see if I adapt.

I’ve buyed many of this, ‘cause I’m a resseler

What happens is that few of the dongles sent by DX are Plug and Play in the XP (The LED is Red), and most of them (green LED) requires the instalation of the BlueSoleil to work (wich is very sad!) (I’ve received these two versions)

I Really hope DX send only the Plug and Play version!!

I bought the damn confused thinking it was the battery AAAA toothpick, but not, is even lower than the toothpick, but how to get discovered 6 Batteries of this type, AAAA, easy and for a good price, looks at the product link below, the guy is excellent seller, but was taxed at £ 35,00 🙁 pois, he sent in a box, it fits in an envelope. The second link is how to achieve 6 baterias AAAA.

Fabricio, up there I meant contingent of RF and PF not. Look, maybe the fiscal've found that your friend wanted to get in two packages not to be taxed and screwed it without knowing it was the DX…but either way the train're ugly anyway these days…worst was my girlfriend at the beginning of November last year…the guy opened, gave her products, dx entered the pen and wrote on the outside of the price of each and everything with cents, and clear, Taxed, but at least the right value… I'll tell you that for tú is a frequent shopper like me, then I believe that if you have not gone through this, logo, logo go pass, I think I bought .. 4 units that bagaça (sku.19001), that due to the packet size, I already knew that was going to tax in any season, but guess?! I grabbed the first one that was in the mouth of the package so open, I took the box, was without plastic, Direct box, so far so good, I put the batteries and the worm has started to work, because the key outta “on”…some minutes following, I took a second in the package, I took the box… Read more»

Hey Fabrizio…

I bought a Super Mini Bluetooth Adapter 2.0 Like this photo AI gives. Arrived today, without being taxed and screening (Inside SP).

I plugged it into my PC and it seems that came with defect… When I put it in the USB appears that balloon windows xp saying: “USB device not recognized”. I installed the CD that came with it and nothing. Sometimes he gives a wink green… Is it due to lack of driver? It should not work after installing a CD? Did my first purchase came with defect?

Follows the screening for you to see:
