    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. The included USB extension cable doesn't work. It only works if I plug the dongle directly to my computer'... Read more

    Easy to use under linux OS (plug & play) (that is what I needed) Provides virtual com interface - easy to use with putty/minicom. Little struggling with windows driver, but no problem either Little bit loosy plastic cover. Electronic can be lost, when one is not cautious, but doesnt mean big problem Great tool, when you need rs232 using with your ... Read more

    Works stable with Windows XP or older. Indispensable for connecting newer PCs with older devices with RS232 interface. Lightweight. Decent build quality - not spectacular, but good enough for what it is. 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 screw connections are ... Read more

    this is my third batch purchase of the same adaptor. Easy to use, works with our custom made serial printers. Windows automatically locate drivers from the internet when plugged in. And even if you dont have internet, the CD came with it can install drivers. the batch we had this time had a few broken ones. The plastic casing was flimsy and not durable.... Read more

    Well built, and easy to use. Works well under different operating system (WIndows, OSX, Linux as well). Im using this adapter to communicate with network equipment with serial management port (like MICROTIK routers) through terminal. Peace of cake :) The case is bulky around the connector, hard or impossible to connect next to a populated USB port. ... Read more

    Price unbeatable, these kind of adaptors on M**k cost about 4 times more. It comes with a small cd with a lot of drivers, you get confused what to use , but if you go to control panel and you leave to browse on that CD, it founds the proper driver inmediatelly. The package also includes a male-female cable ( 0.5m), recommended for long ang confortable ... Read more

    It's cheap. It's simple to use. Lookslike it's plug and play under windows seven. 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 didn't have enough ... Read more

    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 for x64 on ... Read more

    This device is easy to use. In my application I used this converter to access the CTS and the RTS pins on RS232 level. Found it easy to work with, and the drivers does work with windows 7. Functionality wise, this product is excellent. Cheap, but that is why you will buy this product. i.e I received one device with different screw cap colors. If you ... Read more

    Cheap and very usefulness , working, nice to have a CD and cable for it's price. worked at first time. Low quality building, USB connection on PCB can be damaged easliy if not taking in care, better to connect through cable than direct PC-USB connection. Too many drivers on CD. Not yet.. Soldered and guled USB-connector on PCB in the case myself, works ... Read more
