I've never seen an expensive bluetooth adapter.
I usually pay $9USD or $14.
And they should all be just as good because bluetooth is produced by only one company I think. Everybody else just buys the chip, wire it up, and put their logo on it.

Actually, there are several chip set makers, CSR, Broadcom and Atheros are all popular. And then there are the Asian knock-offs, which is why I recommend against the really cheap dongles. Spend a tenner (US) or so on a CSR based dongle (a little more if you want 4.0), and save some potential headaches.
