    Pros: It is cheap and it works. Plug and play in Windows 7. Windows automatically downloads the drivers from the internet with Windows Update. Automatically assigned it as COM3 for me. I don't know why it's COM3 but as long as it works it doesn't matter. Cons: The included USB extension cable doesn't work. It only works if I plug the dongle dir... Read more

Decent build quality - not spectacular, but good enough for what it is. Cons: I could not get it to work with Windows 7. The cable that came with it is of poor quality. I replaced it with a better one. The sc... Read more

    Pros: It's cheap. It's simple to use. Lookslike it's plug and play under windows seven. Cons: The plastic casing fell off when I plugged it the first time. It turned out to be badly glued. Once the plastic case was removed I discovered the mess. I never saw a soldering job that bad. A lot of flux residues and cold joints everywhere. Some joints... Read more

    Pros: this is the second time I am buying a punch of these dongles. Does the job, quite sturdy. Dont expect too much due to the price. The one thing I like about this was that win7 just pick it up and able to look up drivers through the internet. no need to use the flimsy CD that came with it. And the latest batch I had did not have the drivers... Read more

Microwin Configured on that port and communications work without problem. Also works on WinXp with virtualbox, capturing both the usb serial port as a who... Read more
