Hi Hashemamireh,

The hardware from Leo Bodnar is very good at itself. The problem is, the support is absolutely unreachable. He once did very well, but since about one year ago, he is absolutely unreachable. I try to contact Leo Bodnar for a year now, but no reply untill now. Take hardware with continueing support.

Listen dude, the reason why he is unreachable is because Leo Receives 20,000 emails a year! He cant reply to all 20,000 requests! He does the I/O card business around his main job, give him a chance!

By the way go for the X version it is a decent card, lots of outputs compared to the smaller card, my whole sim is based on the card (apart form LEDs). Should you have a question regarding his cards, the almost all of the info is on his website, plus his forum, we are all here to answer q's too. Leo is a busy guy, so take no notice about people who cant get hold of Leo as 20k emails a year is the reason behind this!

In a nutshell, the basic, entry level card is the BU0836. You'll need to solder your wires to this card, can be a bit fiddly.

The BU0836A is esentially the same card but has more accurate? analogue inputs.

The BU0836X is the BU0836A but with push-in type cable terminations to eliminate the soldering. The cables are also easily removed.

I'm guessing and I'm thinking he perhaps has little time to but if he wanted to create a FAQ about his cards and put it here. That would perhaps save a ton of emails and free up what time he is using in answering them quite a bit. Not nit picking but trying to be helpful. He could then place a link to the FAQ here from his site? It's most likely that many if not all of his card customers are either here, coming here or are going to be coming here eventually :)
