Review: Inateck® Bluetooth 4.0 USB Adapter with LED

Inateck Bluetooth

What is it?

Bluetooth has come a long way since its humble beginnings. The latest offering, version 4.0, features a low energy profile, meaning it uses very little energy. While this may or may not be a feature required on your PC, portables such as laptops and phones do appreciate that, and this is exactly what this dongle offers. A simple plug and play experience to give you Bluetooth 4.0 on your device.

Installation

Most laptops, including mine, happily installed this without the need for a driver. However, it does come with a CD, and you can download the latest set of drivers for this device using the Inateck website. The driver need is for audio, and if you don’t need to play audio from your computer, you don’t even need that. I already had it installed on my laptop, which is why I didn’t need it.

Literature tells me that it works on Macs as well, but I haven’t had the chance to try that.

Look and feel

This tiny little dongle is one of those plug and forget devices. Much like a mouse dongle these days, it is tiny, and features a blue flashing LED on it to let you know when the data is being transferred.

Performance

Not much to comment about the performance, which is a good thing. The device works and works well. Bluetooth comes with its own limitations, and those were the only  limitations offered by this device. It works happily over 10m, and the file transfer rates, which are rated to 3MB/s, were not noticeable to be slow either.

More information and buying

You can find more information by clicking the direct link to Inateck’s website:

Alternatively, there is also more information on the product, and buying information from Amazon at the following link:

While generally sold for £15.99, it is on sale for £8.99 right now.

Verdict

A simple and cheap device for laptops and PCs that do not come with Bluetooth built in, with the added advantage of running on Bluetooth 4.0.
