Cost of Link for 3a - help?

Post by Andrew Barnacl » Thu, 21 Jan 1999 04:00:00



Hello

I have a Series 3a  and need to backup to my PC. The 3Link cable +
Psiwin 1.0 is 79.99 uk pounds (ukp) via Dixons - just about what the 3a
is worth. I would prefer to use a 3Link-PsiWin 2.2 combination because
of its improved functionality. I can get a cable for  49.99ukp and
Psiwin 2.2 (complete with the non 3a link) for 49.99ukp. The Psion
company web page has confirmed that 2.2 works with a 3a. As you can
guess, Iam reluctant to pay  80ukp or 100ukp on a machine worth only
70ukp. I have been  searching for a week to find a more economical way
of saving the Psions data to PC. Can anyone please suggest an
alternative?

Cheers
Andrew B.

First of all, you can get PsiWin version 2.2 software only, which is a bit
cheaper at 30+vat, from Clove Technology; I can verify this as I've just
bought one to upgrade from version 1.1  Why not ask them if they can supply
the older cable with the new software as I'm sure you'll find them very
helpful.  I have no connection with them other than being a satisfied

If you buy 2.2, you can undoubtedly sell the new cable and maybe even buy a
secondhand 3Link on comp.sys.psion.marketplace or 3-Lib's classifieds.
