One of the most important parts of a bluetooth dongle is the software. Widcomm is state of the art bluetooth software with the best reputation, (see the bluetooth forums on the internet to see this for yourself). Widcomm is now owned by Broadcom and the Broadcom chips are now made to work flawlessly with the Widcomm software. This is essential to fully support all the bluetooth profiles, different profiles are needed by different devices.
A bluetooth dongle will make your computer bluetooth and it will then be the hub of all your bluetooth operations. So it is important that your bluetooth dongle is reliable. For example, you wouldn't want to spend ￡100, on a top of the range pair of bluetooth headphones. Then find out that they didn't work to their full potential because of unsupported profiles on the computers side. Even worse, you may just think the sound quality isn't that good and just accept it, when really it could be much better.
