"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

Get more out of your equipment with the IEEE 1284 Parallel <-> Serial Converter from Black Box. Use your speedy IEEE 1284 laser printer with your async RS-232/423 hardware. You can use this converter with all your hardware equipped with an IEEE 1284 Bi-Tronics parallel interface. This tiny box gives you lots of operational options because it works in either Level 1 Compatible or Nibble modes (according to the IEEE 1284 standard). So it supports the high speeds - up to 115.2 kbps - necessary for graphics-intensive laser-printer applications. Depending on your equipment, all you have to do is set a switch to change modes. Conversion is simple. On the serial side, the converter translates Nibble operations into standard HP LaserJet IV serial printer escape sequences. This enables operation with standard printer drivers. On the parallel side, the converter translates all commands received from the PC or other serial devices into Bi-Tronics Nibble operations or Compatible operations.
