It is a very easy way to add Bluetooth to an older laptop that has a PCMCIA slot and lacks built in Bluetooth. The antenna retracts and you can likely recognised in Linux on the Debian/Ubuntu based Bodhi linux I have installed on my Dell D420
Nice way to add Bluetooth to older laptops and it provides an extra USB port.
Worth it only if you have a need to add Bluetooth to an old laptop. Most new laptops will usually have bluetooth built in. Even if they don't PCMCIA slots are a thing of the past.
Very useful for old notebook without usb 2.0. Very easy to use: just plug-in and use it. Good price for good quality.
I used it with different devices:old usb 2.0 memory stick transfer rate 50Mbit/sSanDisk cruzer 4G 62Mbit/sOld mp3 player usb 1.1 5Mbit/s2.5'' External hard disk 72 Mbit/s but I need to connect external power supply to old notebook usb.You don't need power supply for memory stick or sdhc card reader
Now I can use an external HD on my old notebook.You don't need any driver (windows xp)No need to reboot the pc
It's the first item I buy from DX and it works!!This item perfectly fit into my PCMCIA Cardbus slot of my HP520 Notebook. The original notebook has only 2 ports usb(2.0) then after I install this item, my laptop has up to 4 ports!! I really love it.I live in Thailand which it takes only 2 weeks to get this item right in front of my house.
Before I buy this item, I was looking for an adapter that can convert PCMCIA Cardbus to USB(3.0) but I can't find it. If you're having a problem like me, this item can serve your requirement although it's not a usb3.0 :).
It works off the box on my Linux Debian (on Dell Inspiron 500m), no drivers needed. It adds NO space on the laptop's side. It's the best card I have seen in this regard. I have now a mouse and a usb hub connected to it and it is working perfectly.
Couldn't be smaller or better. Well, if they do it USB 3.0 then it would be better. I should have bought this years ago.
