To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I used this to connect an FTDI USB to serial converter to an APU4 router, but it would work anywhere you need a standard null-modem cable, i.e. connecting two DTEs (computers, etc.). I would have made up my own cables for this in the past, but there doesn't seem much point at this price.
