Installs flawlessly with a Mac and PC.

R. Ocampo "Artisan", Amazon
11 August 2010
  • Summary: This product has been with me for years. I have the revision 3 and I believe they are up to revision 5 already. It has worked flawlessly with my old Sony Ericsson T610 phone. And it works even better with my current Nokia 6600 mobile. I installed the product in my Apple PowerBook G4 and iBook Dual USB and it instantly recognized the product without any drivers.

Don't buy if you use Windows 7

K. Wyatt "Keith", Amazon
13 July 2010
  • Summary: There are no drivers or software for windows 7. When you install the D-Link BT software you are directed to a Toshiba laptop web site by MS helper program. There is no support to be implemented by D-Link for Windows 7 use.

Works wonderfully under linux, Ubuntu 10.04; no setup or installation required.

Yojimbosteel "Jimbo", Amazon
3 June 2010
  • Summary: I am very careful when looking for Linux-friendly hardware. In my experience anything can be "made" to work under Linux but it is one of those small joys in life when a device works beyond your expectations, no headache necessary. As with anything else in Linux your experience is heavily based on the kernel/computer hardware/distribution/version you are using, so for reference I am running the netbook remix of Ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba nb305.

A little difficult to set up for the novice user

Mr. Dip, Amazon
20 May 2010
  • Summary: I would have given this item a 5 out of 5, except for the issue with generic windows driver installation with Win XP SP2 overwriting the D-Link driver during the initial setup process. Gives the user all sorts of weird error messages. You'll probably see one red and one blue Bluetooth "B's" in your system tray after the software installation.

This made my Magic Mouse work perfectly

JAS, Amazon
6 March 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this bluetooth adapter because my old D-Link bluetooth adapter wasn't compatible with the new Apple Magic Mouse. I have an older G4 pro Mac tower and wanted to use the new Magic Mouse. After a lot of frustration trying to get the OLD adapter to work I performed some research on the internet and found this model. It worked flawlessly. My Magic Mouse now functions perfectly well with my G4 Mirror Drive Door tower running 10.5.8.

Unreliable, and with disgraceful technical support

The Travel Insider "www.TheTravelInsider.info", Amazon
22 February 2010
  • Summary: Sometimes you just know that a product is going to be a disaster, and sometimes you know it will be a delight. Alas, I quickly started getting 'disaster' vibes - even during the installation process with the D-Link DBT-120. The installation (onto my XP Professional OS Dell laptop) was different on screen than suggested by the user guide on the CD and Quick Install Guide. A bad start.

VERY limited use

PhotoDoc "PhotoDoc", Amazon
6 January 2010
  • Summary: I bought this product, based on it being advertised as compatible with a MAC. What I did not know, and what is buried in the technical specifications [if you are lucky] is that it has only two, very limited "link protocols" - ACL and SCO. Therefore it is really only designed for linking phones, etc. It can not link headsets and other audio.

Easy Setup. Flawless with my Win2K , WinXP & my T616

K. Fung "Arsenal", Amazon
23 November 2009
  • Summary: Suprisingly easy setup with this "tiny usb plug" DBT-120. Within 5 minutes (one reboot) and I have my SonyEricsson T616 connect to My Win2K computer and work. (And about same time spent on connecting to my WinXP at home.). With a easy to use interface, transferring files (pictures & midi) from my PC to my T616 is a snap. I would like my T616 support FAX function and that would be perfect but unfortunately T616 doesn't ........
