5.0 out of 5 stars USB Programming Cable for Baofeng UV-5R/666S/777S/888S Radio
Ordered 21st February (supplier is Hossen), airmailed from Singapore on the 22nd and in my letterbox on the 28th, despite a 2-23 March estimated. Fits the radio (uv5r) snugly, and no connection problems that others have reported. Windows 8 recognised the Prolific chipset, so up and working in 5 minutes after a quick reboot. Prompt delivery and it just worked; 5 stars

3.0 out of 5 stars Does not work with Mac but Windows 7 is fine with specific drivers
Note that this is a Prolific cable and most likely has a counterfeit Prolific chipset, please see the CHIRP wiki entry for this for why this is frowned upon; http://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/CableGuide#Cable-Buying-Advice

I have tested this cable with both Mac OS (Mountain Lion 10.8.5) and Windows 7;

5.0 out of 5 stars Also usable with the UV-3R+, 9 Jan. 2014

This review is from: USB Programming Cable for Baofeng UV-5R/666S/777S/888S Radio (Electronics)
I picked up one of these cables to program a pair of UV-35+ units. The cable itself is good quality and fits snugly with the handset. the cable comes with a small CD containing drivers and a manual. I used this in conjunction with Chirp so I can't comment on any other bundled software, but in using it with Chirp everything worked perfectly.

For £6 its worth it if you're setting up more than a handful of memory slots for one or more HT's.

This review is from: USB Programming Cable for Baofeng UV-5R/666S/777S/888S Radio (Electronics)
Tried many PC's (including 32 bit win xp).

"Unknown device". It is not a prolific, just some unknown faked chip.

Not very impressed with the cable, could not download drivers for windows 8.1 and could not find a download for software for the radio either. Not very good, i guess you get what you pay for.

This does what it is supposed to do, but as the program for the radio is rather clunky and keeps reverting to chinese.

5.0 out of 5 stars Programming cable that works., 29 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: USB Programming Cable for Baofeng UV-5R/666S/777S/888S Radio (Electronics)
Having tried a cable sent from Chine, struggled and failed to get it to work.
Purchased this from a UK supplier and using Baofeng own software not the
disc issued with cable, easily programmed 5 X BF888S units to use
public unlicensed frequencies.
