Default multi-pin solderless connectors

I've finally found the solution to multi-pin plugs without it requiring a really fiddly soldering job or costing the earth. . There are many about - solderless. 25 pin plugs ("D "connector, parallel ports) that use screws instead of solder. There are some advertised that use a modified terminal block, but these tend to be big, high-current rating, only 10 pin, and also a bit pricey. Check out the 25-pin ones

I'm sure they have been discussed on here before. I think they are a good product.
