Not as advertised – Data Cable Compatible with Nokia CA-42 Reviews

posted by Android on 11/29/2007 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
It does work... Just not well.
Cons:
It is VERY slow. This is not a USB connection, but a serial to USB converter. DO NOT EXPECT ANY SPEED. The device connects at 9600, it can be changed to 115200, but this is still MILES away from USB speeds. The pictures shown are showing a real Nokia CA-42 device, but they should be removed as that is not what this item is.
Other:
I wouldn't have purchased this item if I had known it wasn't a Nokia cable.
Bottomline:
This is a cheap knockoff cable. It does work, but it doesn't work well.
