Wish I had not got rid of my Signalink :(.

I started out with a Rigblaster. Too many cables, so a few years ago ordered the Signalink USB, have not had a problem with it at all, and if this one ever quits will be getting another one. 

The TX level pot is sometimes a little quirky, but i rarely ever have to touch it

I made a comment in my "goals" for 2021 that I was looking to upgrade my computer-radio interface for portable operations. Intent is to simplify the setup by reducing the cabling, and retire a 20-year-old Rascal and its associated USB-serial converter. Radios to be addressed are both Yaesus (817 and 857)--not looking for a new radio. At the moment, I'm only interested in basic digital modes, e.g. I don't need a quadrature output on the stereo pins. I'm also interested in portability, so desktop-type solutions (e.g., large boxes) would not be preferred.

One of the options I was considering was the Signalink USB. Does anyone have any comments on this? I've seen some reviews that are critical, but I'm not sure their concerns are relevant. 

How about anything else? What have I missed?
