    This cable worked on the first try connecting together some old Macs. It was an easy (albeit slow) way to transfer files, and even get an ancient Performa 600 on the Internet.

    While searching for this product you may see a cheaper one from Monoprice. I tried that, it didn’t work. DON’T BUY THE ONE FROM MONOPRICE.

    If you have two or more classic Macintosh computers (those running on Mac OS 9 or before), this cable is a very simple networking cable that connects the older machines.

    Setting up networking on those older Macs is a cinch, and it makes me miss such simplicity on newer machines. Just use this cable to connect printer ports between the two machines, and launch AppleTalk.

    Moving files between the older machines is very slow this way (about the same speed you’d expect from an old floppy disk), but it works quite well.

    Good quality cable, January 12, 2010

    A quality cable; standard mini DIN 8-pin male connectors on each end. ( […] ).

    I have no doubt that it works for its intended purpose. For any other use, note that I believe this cable is NOT wired “straight-through.” That is, a given pin “n” may not be connected to the same pin “n” on the other end. I’m about 85% sure about this, but it may be I got myself confused testing it! A ‘net search didn’t answer whether a Mac Serial Printer Cable is wired straight-through or not.

    Unfortunately, through no fault of its own, this cable wouldn’t work with my Yamaha YST-MS50 “powered multimedia speakers” to connect the right satellite speaker to the subwoofer/amp unit. The plugs fit fine, but the +12 and -12 pins appear to be crossed within the cable.

    Would be nice if the manufacturer labeled this product a little more completely as to its wiring, but otherwise I can’t complain as it seems to be a good quality cable.
