Works first time with Alfadiag and Unidiag - good quality product and speedy delivery but would get 5 stars if the cable were long enough for a laptop sitting on the passenger seat.

The cable worked with Alfadiag! It is nice to find the right cable first time.

Very speedy service, worked first time with AlfaDiag (once I got XP to stop complaining about driver install), no problems and have used it on approximately 10 different occasions in the last month.

Really impressed with the quality of this product and the service and helpfullness from Andy. Had a few of these from other sources in the past that just do not match up to this quality at a very affordable price for an invaluble piece of kit.

It hasn't even arrived, just ordered it, but have found the site to be brilliant, and Andy to be tremendously helpful. (Don't need to wait for delivery for review, I know loads of people who have the exact same cable, and are very satisfied)
