From the PC-cable one can see that this tool is not a "genuine clone". I wish you luck with it.

Would be nice if you could take photos from the circuit boards of the multiplexer, that is very important when estimating the tool quality.

PS. why does it not have all AddOn's installed?
Which addons are you talking about? And I'll see if I can get some pics just for you later this week

Ps: the interface box is not empty, they unit work perfectly and cant complain for not being an original piece.

On your last screen capture you can see DAS reports at the bottom of the screen a single AddOn, is it 1732, you should have tens of these at the moment for the 03/2011 release.

Can you give me a photo of the circuit board on the RS232 converter. If I got it right from your photos, you have an extra D-connector at the cable and a short cable from this D-connector to the round connector at the mux. Every time I've seen this cable it has been the "C4" cable with the small adapter from a D-connector to the round one.

This tool works perfectly well, as long as it works. The problem is that these tend to die pretty randomly. I do hope this does not happen to you, it could live a year or more with good luck. Someone at this forum reported the average age being a month.

PS. you can take care of those missing AdOnns yourself, just be careful to pick up the correct ones from those that are available.

I think you said above "it doesn't need the addons"-

Anyway, it isn't even the latest release, 05/2011 has been released quite some time ago.

It is reasonable to make mistakes but it would be better to add "I think so" when stating something one is not exactly sure about.

Can we see photos from your mux circuit boards now please?

Thanks. You have just proven yourself that you do not know much about the difference between good and crap tools. Never mind, this tool is good as long as it breaks and if you are not using it in a workshop, it could be OK for a long time. Just install the necessary AddOns and enjoy to tool as long as it lasts.
