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

    Pros:
    As most Mac users who use a lot of serial devices (all three of us), finding a good USB to serial adapter can sometimes be a pain. I've owned numerous ones and have found that the PL2303 chipset works pretty well. This little blue guy works really well with...
    Cons:

    Simple/cheap

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

    Pros:
    Small, compact, ships with drivers. If you need a bare bones USB->serial adapter it's hard to do better than this. It's cheap too, and can stand up to a bit of abuse.
    Cons:
    It doesn't have hardware flow control. That makes it difficult to use in a lot of applications. If you don't need hardware flow...
