[OTZ80] [Poll] 2.5 mm or 3.5mm Link Cable?
« on: August 19, 2010, 01:23:04 am »
As the title says, vote on either having a 2.5 mm or 3.5 mm link cable! :)

Consider the options carefully.
2.5 mm = good old cable, also very small, TI-8x compatible, needs adapters for sound
3.5 mm = good cable, not TI-8x compatible, can have headphones = sound

Happy voting! :)

Headphones can be used with either actually, many cellphones use 2.5 or offer a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter. Just thought I would point that out. :)

It depends of how you would use it. Do you want to make the calculator link with an actual TI-8x? If so, 2.5mm is a good idea. If not, 3.5mm would suffice, since the average person always have 3.5mm headphones lying around. (Personally, I don't have any 2.5 to 3.5 adapter or 2.5mm headphones :() But still, 2.5mm jacks is easy to find.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

i say make the 3.5 standard, and then, for the few people who for some reason wish to link with a TI, explain how to obtain a 2.5 mm converter(or maybe have the option to include one in order for a bit more money?)

3.5. I've never found any 2.5 cables except the I/O cable.
Then again, maybe not...

3.5.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

3.5-cables are easier to find, and is compatible with headphones.
