Those things are POSs. Don't bother unless you want to waste your money. My friend had one, worked for 2 months, sent it back and forth for months, got a new one and died within 3 months. Save up and get the real thing.

My old serial one worked for 2 years. It finally died and now I have a usb job - has worked for over a year. The cost combined was not more than $30.

I have the ebay one and it works perfectly fine for over a year for me. I also purchased the register 409 for some of the features.

For those of you with working cables, could you recommend ebay sellers or places to buy them from?

Yup this is where I got mine

Ditto. Had it for months and used on both a B5 and a B7 and they both work flawlessly with the 311 software.
