Well made, works perfectly  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Yes, there are cheaper interfaces out there. I was using a homebrew interface with no external power, and it would occasionally give me troubles. I built another, meanwhile I tried a USB interface but it wouldn't install properly on my desktop. I finally decided to just spend the extra $$ and buy the Icom interface, and I'm not disappointed at all. Having the extra inputs is a nice option for future expansion, it works flawlessly at 19200 with HRD, and it's all housed in a powder coated steel case.

If you really want or need a serial interface with the ability to handle more than one rig this one is top notch.

Excellent interface!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I decided to built one of my own based exactly on Icom's schematics. WOW! Speeds like 19200, when I was using 4800 on the previous Kenwood TS-850, seemed very fast on my Icom IC-7000 and HRDeluxe! Highly recommended...

Plug and Play  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Decided not to use an aftermarket interface to my IC-756 Pro III. Bought the Icom product and it could not have been easier to install. (Keep in mind that Icom does not does not provide a cable from the interface box to the computer.) Once you obtain the correct cable all you have to do is choose your software program. I choose Ham Radio deluxe. Make sure your rig is set to 1200 baud and boot the program. Mine came up the first time without a hitch. This interface might cost more then some aftermarket items, but it works right out of the box with no hassle. And you can run four transceivers or receivers at the same time with the correct software.

Buy one, you will not be dissapointed.
