    Great, reliable product

    Posted by nick on 28th Sep 2020

    Ordered this product to connect my process valves to the computer for remote, automated control. The product was straightforward and the manual enabled connection of the wires to the correct receptacles. As soon as I clamped them in, it worked and I've had no issues over the last month. Great, reliable product.

    This product is great for its use. I purchased it to learn about data acquisition in circuits and many other things and it works beautifully. I'm learning a lot and definitely recommend this product.

    We own four units -- work perfectly

    Posted by Good Deal on 22nd Sep 2020

    For us, the USB-1208FS is an indispensable development tool used in conjunction with the DAQami software package. The 12-bit resolution and high sampling rate, along with the sufficient (for us) number of analog inputs, provides us with the data we need to assess how our system is performing. As a startup company, we appreciate the favorable price/performance value.

    It has been years that we had to purchase a new one. It has lasted us a good time and is still working. Great product for the price!

    Compact unit, low cost, feature rich

    Posted by ROK56 on 14th Oct 2019

    We have been using this product flawlessly for years and use just a small amount of I/O. Would be difficult to locate a better product at a lower cost.

    Labview driver problems

    Posted by teknikal2 on 29th Sep 2019

    When I last wrote a Labview program for one of these several years ago, everything was good. But when I attempted to use the latest Labview drivers about 6 months ago, I had problems. Every time I would write a new digital value to a pin, the other pins would also change. To work around it, I'd have to keep track of what all the outputs should be, and re-write everything anytime I wanted one pin to change.

    Reasonable price and stable performance

    Posted by Coco Z on 24th Sep 2019

    The product is good in price and the quality is comparable to others with similar specifications. We used the item for 2 years now and have not experienced any real problem. The connections sometimes have problems with the LabView due to the software issue, but the hardware performance was stable.
