- which is a lightweight legacy port solution. I have used this with both Latitude E6500 and Precision M6500. Serial works where some USB to DB9 converter will not. Lightweight. In the field I often leave this connected for high table ergonomic and laptop cooling ventilation reasons. This unit goes connected with the laptop into a padded sleeve into bag - i.e with legacy port still attached. What it is not is a full desktop docking station solution with HDMI and USB3 which is something that DELL is sorely lacking. This is a most excellent product however and has the exacting utility you may need for its given purpose.
Pros:industrial automation engineeering, software enginnering, general use

Review 2 for E-Legacy Extender for Select Dell Latitude E-Family Laptops / Precision Mobile WorkStations
Duration of Product Use:Less than a month
Level of Expertise:Good
Fits My Requirements
PostedAugust 16, 2010
Yes, I would recommend this product
I purchased this as an add-on for my Latitude E6510 - primarily to be able to have a serial port available instead of using USB <-> Serial adapters.
So far, it has worked perfectly for connecting with Crestron products, including their OEM'd MT-500t touchscreen remote.

Review 3 for E-Legacy Extender for Select Dell Latitude E-Family Laptops / Precision Mobile WorkStations
Good, but not for Cisco serial connectors

No, I do not recommend this product.
Overall a good product, but not what I needed.
Pros:2 usb ports; locks securely to bottom of laptop; has 2 angled rubber pads underneath to provide laptop stability.
Cons:recessed serial and parallel do not allow for "non-standard" connectors to be attached (i.e. Cisco serial terminal adapters which have a rectangular flange protruding around its connector)
