View Full Version : working 99 cent bluetooth dongle!

December 21st, 2010, 03:16 AM
First, I am not the seller nor am I associated with them in any way.

I spent a whopping 99 cents on a bluetooth dongle (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190480438208) just to see if it would work. It did!

It took 12 days to get from China to Florida, came in a little plastic bag with no directions or paperwork of any kind.

I plugged it in and the Bluetooth icon appeared in the Panel. Pairing my headset (Motorola S305) was a snap, static code '0000' and it was found. Preferences, Sound, output, moved it to my headset and POOF! Stereo wireless tunes.

Haven't done any distance testing yet. Not that I need it to work across the room.

Ubuntu 10.4, current patches/updates
HP Pavilion dv6000

I did not think I was spamming, I thought I was passing on an incredible deal for a piece of hardware that works well with the OS.

Perhaps I posted in the wrong forum?

Thanks, this will be my last public service message, but the dongle is really cool.

:shock: I paid $20US for mine....but I don't have means of internet purchasing right now...;)
I did, however, do a fair bit of homework to make sure that it would be compatible and it works great!:D IOGEAR GBU421X, found at Wal-Mart if anyone cares.
