  • There are 4 color variations of this product. They all look cool devices on your workdesk.

  • C.Itoh was a Japanese company manufactured early age Computer peripherals like video terminals and printers. I can reverse guess how the original Japanese instructions were written from the badly translated ones.
    The company had a sense of humor indeed. It manufactured video terminal named VTIO1 (donot get confused with VT101) which exactly looked like and worked like a certain US product.

  • I noticed this “red PCB” version has some differences from the previous “green PCB.” The improvements should be mentioned in product description.
    - two LEDs for Tx and Rx added,
    - pin layout and pin description on back were changed,
    Nice changes, I will add the new batch next my purchase.

No public wish lists :(
