5.0 out of 5 stars Epson UB-UO2-III Usb Print Server, February 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Most older Epson TM88 II or TM88 III POS Thermal receipt printers came with a parallel port interface. In today's world most of the printers are available with a USB interface. When we got into later XP OSs it was possible to use a parallel to USB converter cable to make some of the older printers work on a USB port. When we went to WIN7 things were considerably more sophisticated and those converter cables would no longer do the job. Epson then came out with a plug-in print server, which could replace the parallel port on their TM88 III and transformed it into a USB printer instead of a parallel printer. WIN7 would not interface with the TM88 II at all. Epson had decided to eliminate the TM88 II from WIN7 by not including it in the drivers written for that OS. The oldest model they included was the TM88 III and once converted to USB the TM88 III worked completely and ran all programs that had been originally written for the TM88 II. It would have been possible to stay with a parallel interface if we had wanted to put a parallel port on the newer computers. Many of the newer Mobos come with a header that will allow the attachment of a parallel port and most have the ability to enable it in their bios but we decided not to perpetuate some of the older legacy items that are obviously being phased out.

Pulsar Men's PF8222 Chronograph Two-Tone Stainless Steel Watch

5.0 out of 5 stars Pulsar Men's Chronograph, February 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Super looking watch!! The gold bezel on the front is stationery unlike many other chronographs, which have a moveable bezel for use with the stop watch functions. In addi8tion to its good looks the watch has been extremely accurate. If I take the time to synchronize it with one of our clocks that gets synchronized with the signal sent out from the US Naval Observatory, it will only vary by less tan two seconds between fall and spring settings.

5.0 out of 5 stars 19in Rackmount bracket for Belkin F1da104t KVM Switch, February 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This bracket does exactly what it was designed to do, namely it enables the KVM switch to be mounted in a 19in rack frame. Very quickly and easily attaches, with screws, to the pre-drilled and tapped holes on the sides of the KVM switch and the holes in the uprights of the rack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adesso Easy Cat 2 Button Glidpoint Touchpad, February 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Was having an impossible time finding a USB keyboard and touch-pad combination that would work with a KVM switch plus a USB CAT 5 KVM extender. All keyboards with touch-pads operate off a single USB cable. Both the key strokes and the touch-pad signals travel over a single USB connection, which is perfectly acceptable to all the current motherboards and OS's. It is also acceptable going directly into most current KVM switches. However, add a USB CAT 5 KVM extender and the touch-pad signals get interpreted as keyboard sequences and everything gets all messed up. The USB CAT 5 KVM extender wants separate cables for the keyboard and the touch-pad. Once separated everything works beautifully. .The Adesso touch-pad has some features that are really great and work well in this scenario

4.0 out of 5 stars Acer V5-571P 15.6-inch touch screen laptop., February 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Arrived with Windows 8 basic, which for a portable business computer immediately posed some communications problems. Upgrading to Windows 8 Pro pack immediately solved that problem. I bought a 500GB SSD to speed up the disk IO and have since found that Acer in their "infinite wisdom: or 'infinite parsimony" has made this version of their laptops with no user access to either the HDD or the CPU so user upgrades to anything other than memory is considered a breach of warranty since it requires a complete dis-assembly of the case. I still need to get layout of the inside of the case and list of compatible processors before I undertake my upgrade.

3.0 out of 5 stars Viewsonic touxh screen display, February 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Over the period of 2 dozen years have used numerous view sonic screens and have loved sharp clean colors and super reliability of their monitors. The display quality of this unit is equally as good as my past experience but the touch screen has proven to be a problem in my location and has been a distinct irritation. The screen responds well to touch, however the sensitivity is so great that any flying insect even a tiny gnat landing on and or walking on the screen can launch programs by walking across an icon. They can pull up stored documents in MS word and excel and change content or completely delete saved documents simply by landing on the screen and / or walking across it. I contacted Viewsonic support to see if there is someway to reduce the sensitivity and there is not. My only way to prevent unwanted activity is to unplug the USB connection to the monitor when it is left unattended. Of course getting rid of the little pests would be the best solution but since we are a winery and this is the monitor on a POS system at a tasting bar, that is much easier said than done.

makes a great addition to the front of a panel mounted server with a spare 3.5 inch bay. Makes interfacing cameras and GPS updating much easier than fighting through the jumble of cables on the back side.

5.0 out of 5 stars Down angle cat 6 plug, February 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
With jacks imbedded in the floor under my desk, a cable end with an angle keeps the cable low and less likely to be kicked. The left angle, right angle, and up angle are easier to disconnect than the down angle but when jacks are located 2 or 3 in a row the down angle makes a perfect choice for the "bottom" jack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Left Angle patch cable, February 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
With jacks imbedded in the floor under my desk the lower profile helps to keep the cords from being kicked. A few good kicks can destroy a cable or jack.
