StarTech DB92422 RS422 RS485 Serial DB9 to Terminal Block Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs NOT RS-232 to RS-422 11/17/2014

This review is from: StarTech DB92422 RS422 RS485 Serial DB9 to Terminal Block Adapter

Pros: The pin assignments are molded into the black body.

Cons: It LOOKS like an RS-232 to RS-422 adapter, but it isn't.
(The price should have been a clue.)

As to "Meet Indsutrial Standards" it cannot because there are NO standard RS-422 pin arrangements for DB9 plugs.
It probably matches StarTechs RS422 adapters (ICUSB422, etc.), but I would check other
manufacturers' datasheets.

Howard Miller 625-195 Chronicle Wall Clock with LCD Inset, 14in, Gray
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs day/date display helps the elderly 07/30/2012

This review is from: Howard Miller 625-195 Chronicle Wall Clock with LCD Inset, 14in, Gray

Pros: Having the day/date display helps my mother-in-law keep track of what day it is and therefore if she has taken her medicine today and what is on her schedule.

Cons: The contrast on the day/date display could be better.
When the light is right, it is easy to read from across the room. When not, less so. The LCD display background is
a shinny silvery color. The contrast would be better if it had a matte white background.

The day/date display is completely separate from the clock hands mechanism, so there are two things to set _and_ coordinate. The person setting up the clock needs to understand that.

Philips AmbientLED 12W 2700K A19 Dimmable - Energy Star LED Light Bulb - 12A19/AMB/2700-800 DIM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs bright enough, "warm" enough, dimmable - sometimes 07/29/2012

This review is from: Philips AmbientLED 12W 2700K A19 Dimmable - Energy Star LED Light Bulb - 12A19/AMB/2700-800 DIM

Pros: Good looking light, dimmable in the right circumstances.

I expect it would dim well with an old-fashion wall switch dimmer that has a push-push on-off switch and a rotary dim setting control.

This purchase was an experiment to learn how well LED lamps can replace incandescents. I learned a lot.

Cons: Does not dim well using X-10 and other dimmers.

I bought 2, and tried them with 2 different X-10 dimmers
and a table light with a touch control that cycles between 4 levels of brightness and off.

Both of the X-10 dimmers are the wall-switch type that are in series with load on the "hot" (usually black) wire. If turned on at the wall, the lamp dims nicely from an X-10 remote, but once the lamp turns off, the remote cannot turn it back on.

I did not test the lamp with an X-10 "wall wart" lamp module. I imagine that it _might_ work properly.

In the fixture with the touch-control the 3 dimmed settings work well and look good, but selecting the full-on setting causes the lamp to go into a fast-flicker, more than half the time.

The Philips web site only lists particular Lutron dimmers as compatible.

Other Thoughts: I suspect that X-10 dimming might work if several of these lamps were in parallel, like in a chandelier.
