Absolutely none!  Save your money.  Run RS-232 from computer to Omni.  Run
audio-in and out from Omni to computer sound card.  Build a one-transistor
CW interface.

Many people who buy the supposed plug-and-play interfaces end up pulling
their hair out with both hardware and software configuration problems.

You're a ham.   Do it yourself.  Save time.  Save money.  Gain
satisfaction.  Have more fun.
