The IOGEAR Bluetooth adapter worked

big E, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The Bluetooth adapter appears to be working seamlessly; however, Windows 8.1 can be somewhat more problematic when connecting to a Bluetooth device. After going to devices and coaxing it along it worked perfectly.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up

very pleased with the purchase for use in MacBook Pro

Joanne A. Hromisin, Amazon
23 October 2014
  • Summary: Works exactly as described. Used in MacBook Pro where internal Bluetooth was not functioning. No driver install necessary. Immediately recognized and restored blue tooth function. More responsive than original internal Bluetooth. Dongle is slightly bulbous on the ends. Makes it hard to fit certain USB key drives in the neighboring USB port. Overall, very pleased with the purchase for use in MacBook Pro.

Not Mac compatible, very large.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 October 2014
  • Summary: Doesn't work w/ my Mac at all. It is so rounded that it blocks the USB port next to it. Maybe there is a driver that will make it work, but it's not easy to find.

Great fix for persistent BlueTooth issues on Apple Mac Pros!

Harald Striepe "Harald", Amazon
18 September 2014
  • Summary: This is a great solution for a pervasive problem with Apple's Mac Pro systems through 2013. I have not tested the new "late 2013" rount tower model, but all of the previous designs (Mac Pro 1,1 through 5,1) have Bluetooth antennas on the bottom of the case resulting in very poor performance - especially with the Magic Mouse. This adapter solves the problem and upgrades BT to version 4.0 BT LTE. The chip set is Broadcom, which is used by Apple.

Excellent little adapter...except

Rormeister, B&H Photo
28 July 2014
  • Excerpt: This little product does exactly what it is described to do. However, if you also have a Logitech unifying USB adapter they may collide. My wireless trackball pointer goes totally berserk if both adapters are present and connected. Otherwise, it recognizes all my bluetooth devices including what I purchased it for, my Sony wireless headphones.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Possible Conflicts

Good bluetooth adapter

Mike B., B&H Photo
23 June 2014
