I bought an MSI class 1 dongle sometime ago (they've halved in price since purchase) and I think the performance with my ipaq h2210 is excellent. Range is surprisingly good (20m+ _with_ walls). Once software is configured properly (distro dependent?) browsing and streaming is seamless.
I chose this dongle for two reasons: class 1=high power output, and also high sensitivity (receive) as the ipaq has only class 2 bluetooth (lower power/range).
