    Everyone seems to be going USB. I noticed that trend myself. I prefer to have the cardbus as it fits in nice and secure. Not some other corded acc. to get lost or bumped and broken. I imagine a USB port is a lot cheaper than Cardbus/Expresscard and everything is driven by the bean counters.

    There isn't any near me either, or else I could pick one up and ship it to you.

    Actually, probably so, as the rate increases have been to subsidize mass transit in other cities, cities far enough removed that I can't even take advantage of said mass transit systems....

    Well my Zoom Card arrived last night, courtesy of Philliboi! Thanks!

    I installed it and must report that it does not run under Win7 with the supplied driver. I did find a driver on the web that was certified for Vista that I got to run, with some conflicts. My next step is to try the latest Toshiba Bluetooth Stack and see how that works

    For what it is worth, there are two versions of the Zoom card, one that has an extensible antenna and the other, which I have, does not. Both take different drivers.

    The one I have is for sure not an old and re-badged Billionton Card as has been strongly suggested Topcop... ;)

    Thank you for posting that update. I would be interested to learn if you are able to get a good, workable driver under Windows 7.
