provides both the USB and the serial connections in a single cable.
Personally, I sync my Visor Prism with three computers and two operating
systems. I have a few cradles, but when I travel to other offices,
I never know where I'm going to be able to HotSync. I purchased a USB HotSync Travel cable a
while back, but then the USB on my Win2K Laptop stopped working.
The NxCable-HotSync offered me enough flexibility that I could simply
switch over to the serial cable. The USB connector also
works with Macintoshes, although the Serial connector doesn't work with
It's a fairly well-made cable. The USB connector and the connector that
hooks to the Visor are very sturdy and will standup to rough treatment. My
only complaint with the cable is that the Serial connector is made of two
plastic halves that snap together. This in itself isn't a bad thing, but
because the connector isn't made of one molded piece of plastic or hard rubber,
it feels a little light and could possibly break (if anything were to break).
This is a no-brainer. If you are a Visor Power user like me,
you never know where you are going to HotSync. This cable offers
the most flexibility for HotSyncing on the go. I suppose the only
other thing I could ask for (as I am a Prism user) would be a place to
plug in my Prism AC Adapter so I could charge and HotSync at the
same time without a cradle. If you're thinking of being buying a
second cradle, and aren't sure if you want the Serial or USB version,
consider a NxCable-Hotsync first.
Overall (not an average)
- The obvious: Gives you the flexibility to choose how to HotSync
- Very long: 4-plus feet
