These work amazingly well. They are not for production use but for prototypes they work awesome. You must crimp twice and be careful or you’ll cut off the wire (the process is not easy, don’t fool yourself). But eventually you can produce great cables for prototypes.
I used the crimper on SPH-001T-P0.5L and SPHD-001T-P0.5L, part of the PAD connector series. Worked great. It is literally impossible without this tool (I tried, gave up and tried solder, and it was FAIL).

I ordered two of these in late April, and they are the Epson-derived controller. I followed all the instructions but it wasn’t until I found dstahlke’s comments that things actually blitted correctly. I highly recommend his code for this generation.
Also, I’m using the breakout board, and like others I found the inductor gets hot enough to burn, especially with +5v coming in. Less hot at 3.3v, but still.
No public wish lists :(
