    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    It works great on PCs that have no serial ports or fewer than the desired number.
    Works a lot better than a USB dongle.

    Cons:

    Well, I had to open my PC to put it in, but that's to be expected by a PCI card, I'd think.
    You need to restart even when software says its unnecessary.
    Will show you a LPT port in control panel, but there is only 2 serial ports card!
    Also, COM ports are starting to go the way of the dinosaur, so the future usability factor is questionable.

    OtherThoughts:

    MOSCHIP 9635 http://www.moschip.com/ for lastest drivers incl Win7.

    Bottomline:

    Cheap but great quality hardware!
