Summary: I would maybe have given this a 5 star rating, however, I felt that Canon should have included an instruction sheet on the various uses of this device with their printers. I purchased this to use to connect my "Like New" Canon Pixma IP 100 printer via Bluetooth to my Android tablet.
Summary: The device is compact and specifically designed for the Canon printer products. It does not pair with Apple products, but works with Android devices without issue. I had the hardest time detecting the device with my iPhone, iPad and MacBook.
Excerpt: I bought the Canon ip100 printer recently and needed wireless printing from my phone and tablets. So I got the bluetooth adapter, and it works GREAT!!! You can plug it into into the USB port or place it inside the printer housing.
Summary: Purchased to use with an iPhone. Although the reviews available indicated no one had tried this with an iPhone, I gave it a try. Impossible to get my phone and printer to connect using this device. Completely disappointed!
Summary: I've been using this Bluetooth adapter on my Canon MP470 all-in-one printer with my 13 in MacBook, and I had absolutely no problem attaching, installing and printing without wires. I was up and printing within five minutes.
You Don't Need This Expensive Adapter....Any Cheap Bluetooth Adapter Will Work Just As Well

Summary: You do not need this expensive adapter....any Bluetooth adapter will work. I plugged in my $7.99 adapter (Kinivo BTD-300 Bluetooth 3.0 USB adapter) and it worked just fine. My cheaper Bluetooth adapter is actually more reliable than the much more expensive Canon BU-30!
