  • Cool product, but useless in some cases

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - Makes it easy to connect a RS232 device to your notebook

    - Plug & play (in some cases you need to install the drivers from the disk)

    Cons:

    - No native RS232, it uses USB simulation (which is ok for the price)

    - A bit fragile, the plastic doesn't fit nice to the metal card

    OtherThoughts:

    The box says 'PCMCIA', but it's not a PCMCIA card, it's an ExpressCard, like the DealExtreme title says. Only the boxing is wrong, on the card zelf it says ExpressCard.

    Bottomline:

    Nice product, but because of the USB simulation it doesn't work with every RS232 device.
