What got me thinking about this is an email I received from one of our readers offering to do a review of the MicroRidge product. The following is an excerpt from that email:
"The MicroRidge AT product that I ordered from MicroRidge Systems (your advertiser) arrived yesterday. You may recall that I ordered this evaluation unit to examine its capabilities at capturing ASCII data from a controller and immediately passing it on to whatever application the user might have open....
Within 20 minutes I read the manual, connected the device to my laptop, executed a couple of simple steps provided in the CD setup application, opened Excel, Word, and Notepad and pressed the [PRINT] key on the controller. Viola! Everything worky precisely as expected. The data sent from the controller immediately appeared in whatever window was active.
Even more beneficial is the fact that any customer could set the device up w/o any additional assistance. I'm not kidding, this is one of the easiest RS232-keyboard buffer tools that I have ever examined - easy to understand, easy to configure and very easy to use."
So what do you think? I'd like your comments on how Industrial Weigh & Measure print magazine could do independent reviews of scale equipment and peripherals.
