Well, we have shortlisted a few good ones so, you can skip the hard part & focus on the easy part. So, these are the best Bluetooth dongle options that you can buy right now.
The BT400 from ASUS has been proven pretty reliable in terms of connectivity. It runs the Bluetooth version 4.0 & it plugs in using a regular USB port on your PC. However, this one will only support Windows. So, sadly you may not be able to use this in other platforms. It is selling for 2328 INR while at the time of writing this article.
Ugreen USB Bluetooth 4.0
This is a slightly cheaper option selling for 739 INR at the time of writing this article. This one supports Windows as well so, it’ll work perfectly with your PC. It’s also Bluetooth 4.0 compatible. If you don’t have the budget to get the ASUS, you can consider this one.
Rocketek 4.0 Low Energy USB Dongle
This one is selling for 699 at the time of writing this article & it supports Linux PCs alongside Windows. If you use both Windows & Linux or just Linux, the Rocketek 4.0 seems to be a good option. Between the Ugreen & this one, the price gap is pretty small so, it’s up to you which one you want to go for.
If your budget isn’t a huge issue, you can have a look at the Creative BT-W2. It is selling for 3796 INR at the time of writing this article. The BT-W2 supports Windows, Mac, PS4 & even the Nintendo switch. It can function as both transmitter & receiver as you’d expect. The biggest reason why it still got the bottom spot is because of it’s Bluetooth version. It still runs on the older Bluetooth 2.1. That’s its biggest disadvantage.
So, those were our top picks for the best Bluetooth dongle options that you can buy right now. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments section below.
