    USB Bluetooth Dongle

    Where would be the cheapest place to get one from other than fleabay? As I don't have an account. Is there any difference between them apart from price?

    i know this doesnt help but i bought the cheapest one i could find on ebay and works a treat, dont see why you would need a huge range as you'll be working at the comp anyway

    Be careful what you buy coz ive found some that have issues with windows xpsp2. And certain dongles such as 3com wont work with the likes of nokia pc suite.
    Though I gotta be honest Ive bought a couple of cheapy ones and they work fine... Its the branded ones that tend to play up for me. The one im using now is called a "BlueSoleil" bout a fiver i think and its 100m range

    In case you haven't bought off Craigy.

    PCWorld do Belkin ones in either 10m (£9.99) or 100m (£15.99).
    I have both, and both work great.

    There is no difference in speed, other than the further away you are, the poorer the connection, so the slower the file transfer. MOst people tend to sit next to their computers when using bluetooth, so probably not an issue.

    Thanks for that Teejay, thats pretty much what I wanted to know, and thanks everyone else for their input.

    But big thanks to CraigY too for the dongle!
