Great, if u have the time and knowledge to find and install the drivers that this cable requires.

I've had one of these cables before, a few year back. No problems. Programmed radio fine.

This one however is a different story.

When plugged into laptop (windows 7 or 10), a message comes up saying device not known or malfunctioned.
I spent hours reading up on how to get it working and the finding relovent drivers required.
The drivers on the disc didn't work either.

The previous able I had wasn't anymore expensive than this one. I must have been lucky.
My advice would be to get a more expensive one that has the FDTI chip in it.
I have read these work straight away, no messing about for hours.

Hope this helps/saves you time.

My rating of the product reflects as per head line.

Caution when using CD software on Baofengs,

The CD was put into my PC and the brand new radio connected to it. It damaged the Radio which no longer works properly. It transpired that the CD was for a mush earlier version of the Baofeng and although a warning comes up saying it will damage your radio, it was too late. The cable works fine, but the CD is useless.

Good value - great quality

Good quality at very reasonable price. The cable fits the 2pin radio connection perfectly. The software is basic and I found using Chirp easier but I needed to use the usb drivers from the disc providedRead full review...

CD software

The lead works very well but unfortunately the CD software is a load of rubbish you can download better software on the internet and believe will work very well
