Poor  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
The item is not of good quality. The USB plug is very loose in the plastic body. The attitude of the owner is such that I decided to buy a more expensive Microham data interface, a purchase I have not regretted.

Brilliant Interface  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have used products from Neil G4ZLP now for around 3 years, and all I can say is they are spot on this interface is plug and play and works like a dream. I used it on 3 Icom radios 756 pro 735 and 706 just had had to buy another lead for the 706.When I needed this a quick message to Neil and it was on its way to me.
I also use digimaster data interface and with new cables have run around 10 different radios the products are great and customer service is second to none.
Anyone looking for a trouble free way into cat control or digimodes con buy with confidence and have the knowledge that they only need new leads if they change rigs.Also that with a quick email to Neil any problems will be sorted out.
All in all I cannot fault any of his Products

Working fine  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I bought two of these and both are working without any problem, just plug it in and that is all. For this price I wouldn't bother to make my own. Quick delivery as well. No experience with the customer service department other than ordering these CAT interfaces but as said, it was handled and delivered quickly.

Splendid !  Time owned: more than 12 months
Arrived in time. Worked well, first time, without fuss. Price very reasonable, too, especially compared to maker's own. For someone whose computing skill is such that he can make an abacus freeze and turn white-on-blue, this speaks volumes. The only way it could be better would be to come with a crate of claret and a crate of missiles to home in on Russian military intruders on 20 metres.

QC a little hit & miss.  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Experienced problems with the usb to serial converter along with disinterested customer service department. Maybe I just plain got me a bad one when QC was on vacation?

Works Great  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This cable connects my computer serial port to my ICOM ProII CI-V data port. Worked great right out of the box. I am using with ICOM ProII, Dell Latitude D630 Laptop, and Windows 7.

Serial to USB supplied did not work  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Followup to previous review: Determined that the usb to serial converter sold with the Interface cable was the problem by borrowing a computer with a 9 pin serial and hooking up to 746Pro directly. Interface cable alone worked ok with Ham Radio Deluxe.
