They're never long enough. It almost makes it to my computer, but an inch in front of the plug I run out of cable. That's why I'm glad Belkin makes an extension cable to keep life simple.
The Extension Cable Straight-through, 25 Conductor is most commonly used to extend the length of an existing DB25 cable assembly, but it can also be used as a PC to serial modem cable.
State-of-the-art wiring design ensures 100% compatibility with all devices 100% of the time;
Gold plated copper contacts provide maximum conductivity and keep data loss to a minimum;
Oversized ergonomic thumbscrews make installation a breeze;
Flextec PVC rubberized cable jacket is extremely flexible for use in tight areas;
Molded strain relief and PVC overmolding to ensure a lifetime of error-free data transmission;
28 AWG stranded tinned copper conductors are individually insulated in polypropylene to minimize cross talk, ensuring high-speed, error-free transmission;
Ground indents provide excellent conductivity and retention with mating conductors;
PVC premold encapsulates individual conductors to ensure electrical isolation and relieve stress;
Aluminum undermold shielding helps to meet FCC requirements on EMI/RFI interference.
