Hey guys, I have searched everywhere for one but I can't find one :(. I would prefer a small, cheap one if possible.

All the forums I've read people have had problems with 64bit W7 :(.

I'm going to be using it to connect my PS3's bluetooth headset to my PC when I game on here.

Thanks in advance.

P.S I'm in the UK.

really? I had a bluethooth dongle back from my xp days, and had a hard time getting it to work in vista. I plugged it in with windows 7 untimate 64bit and it insalled all the drivers by itself. It was even eaiser then setting it up in xp.

Thanks for your reply mate, the problem is, I've looked at some of the small ones on ebay and they say 'doesn't work with x64' or 'win7 and/or win7 64' :(

Ah thank you. Do you have Windows 7 64bit? If so, can you comfirm which one you bought?

EDIT: Nevermind, I have just read the reviews on this one: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.37665 , a few people have comfirmed it working on W7 64bit :). You sir are getting +rep, thanks again :)

I have this one and it works with my Windows 7 x64 laptop.
Win7 is not listed in the specs but it works.
I didn't have to load any special drivers or anything.

thanks for your input guys... as I stated above I have now bought one from the website Drag0nZorD! suggested :) (also updated the link as I forgot to post it). I will keep the thread up so others who are looking for one can find it :).

I'll vouch for the one on DX. I've bought three of them (one for myself, one for girlfriend and one for a friend) and they all work flawlessly on W7 64-bit.
