That looks like a bargain! Also - the picture's a little small but
that looks very much like the T610 cable I have, so hopefully same
manufacturer. (There's a little rectangular 'pod' with a PCB inside.)
If it is the same as the one I have then it has the advantage that it's
not sealed into a resin glob, but there's the disadvantage that it
needs a mod for 5V which requires soldering a tiny leg on the PL2303.
