Ever wonder about the quality of cheap bluetooth dongles on amazon? I did so I bought a few dozen.
soooo many junky non upgradeable Cambridge Silicon Radio flavors. My favorite junk CSR 0a12:0001 causes no problems until trying to pair then system hang — not so great for proximity login.
0a12:0001 [ASIN:B003VWU79I, merchant:A2T2LRVG0LYFAA, $2.5]
Most play well with the powered USB2 hub:
05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB-2.0 4-Port HUB, Macally TriHub7, ASIN:B001DBF07S
Other fun hardware playing well on the hub
045e:001d Microsoft Corp. Natural Keyboard Pro
1532:000d Razer USA, Ltd
Hardware that does not play well on the Raspberry Pi directly or on the hub:
045e:001d Microsoft Corp. Natural Keyboard Pro — massively repeated letter strings and numerous letter dropouts
0c45:7000 Microdia, receiver for iPazzPort Commander Bluetooth KP-810-18BR [purchased from unisen-usa.com] — dongle doesn’t enjoy being BlueTooth

I don’t often experience commercial breaks but when I do I do something else. For everything else there’s sick beard.
