    Very nice cable

    posted by Fossalta on 07/31/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    - Very good quality - Excellent price (they sell for like 25 euro's here) - It's black =) - Gold plated connectors - Ferrite chokes on both sides - Plastic covers for the connectors - Picture quality does not degrade, even at 1080p
    Cons:
    - Cable is heavy and puts some straints on the connector when connected - Cable smells funny

    One of the better cables

    posted by Fossalta on 07/31/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    This cable actually works! Those little green adapters work like crap, this cable actually acts like a real COM port. The CTS and RTS lines are connected, and there's a line driver on the PCB (so more volts than TTL !). This cable works when you need more t...
    Cons:
    Price is a bit higher than those green adapters, but it works waaaaay better.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    - Very good quality - Reads pretty much every barcode, tried about 50 different styles! Even small barcodes are read without hassle - Can scan barcodes shown on computer screens! - Scanner can be programmed for specific barcodes using the special barcodes i...
    Cons:
    - Input is pretty slow, probably because it' s just a serial (RS232) scanner with a serial to USB converter in the connector pl...

    Works as it's supposed to

    posted by Fossalta on 02/10/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Adds a standard parallel port to a PC Works better than a USB/Parallel convertor because it actually shows as a parallel port and not a USB printing device. This means that it also works for scanner devices! Very cheap compared to other manufacturers. Easy ...
    Cons:
    Doesn't use legacy I/O addresses. Some programs might have problems with that. But if you can configure the I/O address manuall...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    No odd smells when soldering. Not much fumes when soldering. Also cleans copper very well using a piece of cotton ball for when you want to clean or solder on a dirty/old PCB. VERY cheap! Local electronics store charges about 15 euro's for this amount of f...
    Cons:
    The supplied bottle is pretty useless unless you are using q-tips. Chinese label. Maybe a bit too liquid-ish.. if it were a bit...
