Pros: This is a well-made cable that installs easily. I use it with the ACLog amateur radio logging program, but it should work well with any CW transmitting program that keys the transmitter by toggling the serial port's DTR line. It seems unlikely that you could build your own cable for less than the price of this one.
Cons: Shipping is a bit slow, but the product is worth the wait.

Pros: Good physical build. High quality chrome quarter inch jack. Unit is based on a CH340 chipset and yes, IT DOES USE A OPTO-ISOLATOR for the keying interface. No shared/unified grounds in this device. Resistance between grounds exceeds 80 Megaohms, the limit of my test equipment. Works great with my Icom IC-7600 and IC-7000 with Ham Radio Deluxe. When properly configured, I don't even need to start HRD, just start DM780 in CW mode and using the COM port configuration menu, set your radio to STRAIGHT KEY and I am able to use the CW modes the way the manufacturer intended, in CW mode! It does come with a software disc, but not needed with Windows 7 as driver is automatically installed upon insertion. Just look up which com port number was assigned by your PC and point DM780 to that numbered port and VIola! It works perfectly! Bye bye Signalink and their MCW modes, you will not regret this inexpensive purchase! I even bought two.
Cons: strain relief in quarter inch jack could be more robust.
Other Thoughts: One may be able to use an adaptor on this device to convert to an acessory jack and use this interface also to act as a RTTY keyer. I have not tried yet, but it should work.

Pros: Bought this to rewire some cabling in the house. Was getting interference and flickering on the old cable. Once I changed it out the issues were gone. I don't have satellite, but if you are using RG59 cable on Satellite you will want to switch it out if you ever get the chance.

Cons: Cannot handle a 4 channel DOCSIS 3.0 high speed cable Internet connection. Only 2 channels are up to spec, the other 2 are impaired.
Other Thoughts: Save yourself some grief, if you are buying a cable to install a high speed Internet cable modem, you need RG-6. This cable is RG-59. It took a visit by a cable company tech to find this out, I've been fighting intermittent slow speeds and dropped packets ever since I did the install. Tech made me a new cable with RG-6, works perfectly now.
