Summary: I got one of these for Christmas and have used it to connect from several items (laptop and iPhone 3G) to my home stereo. It sounds great. I was going to purchase a new stereo for my car just to have bluetooth streaming from my iPhone ($200 with install). I have been using an audio jack input to my car stereo from my iPhone. I checked the power input for the DC800 and it runs great from my laptop from a USB cable (it has a mini_USB power input on it).
Summary: this adapter is a great piece of equipment. most of the time.... my stereo is only 20 feet from my computer and the adapter quits in the middle of songs, when i place my hand over the side of my computer, whenever the microwave runs, and sometimes (often) just between songs. closest thing to perfect Ive found, but still very disappointing. I usually have to reconnect bluetooth several times during the day while listening to music.
Summary: Hi, I am writing this review after using this product over 2 years, yes I had bought this product back in November 2007. This device is used mainly to connect it to the Motorola headset to listen ti music/tv programes/movies. I am verry satisfied with its quality and usability as it has been giving me flawless performance since past two years.
Summary: It paired with my iPhone just fine but the output level was so low that I had turn my stereo up all the way to get usable volume. No one in tech support (non-native English speaking) could produce any specifications to determine whether the unit was operating as designed so I returned it. Not recommended.
Summary: I've been using this for close to a month now, and while the convenience is undeniable, the quality is lacking. It was very easy to set up, but it was weird that they cable me audio-out cables as well as audio-in cables. I guess in case I wanted to wire myself again? Either way, the set-up and connection with my MacBook Pro (10.5.7) was extremely easy. I could do with a longer plug, but that's minor. More importantly, that sound quality is "fair".
Summary: The device looks good and is easy to setup BUT appears not to work with many computers! While it connected instantly to the bluetooth on my Blackberry, I still haven't managed to connect it to my Sony Vaio (Vista) or macbook (Leopard). A search of the web revealed that many many others have problems (with Dells too) and the workarounds appear long and complicated. I still haven't managed to get it to work with either laptop.
Summary: The unit is certainly convenient to use, and pairing is rather straighforward. Range is about 30 ft in my (not very exhaustive) test. BUT: The big issue is sound quality! It brings you back to the time of tapes (muffled sound, missing highs, loss of airiness and vigor) and scratched vinyl records (hiss, and most annoyingly, regular pronounced cracks and pops that sound like bad scratches on the record).
Summary: This unit can works well and without problems. It requires the stereo head set I use to be paired with it each time the headset is turned on or after the headset is charged. The unit can only be paired to one device/headset at a time. Although the unit works well, I believe a plain wireless on infrared headset system would suit my needs better.
allows me to play music on my laptop through my stereo

Summary: I've owned this product for 2 or 3 years now. I love it, period. I came here hoping that Moto still made these so that I could grab a second one for the bedroom. The way I understand it is, the majority of users fall into one of two categories: 1) People want to use this with bluetooth headphones in some way/shape/form, and 2) People want to play the music on their computers and hear it on their home stereos. I've always thought Mototola mis-marketed this thing.
