Works well with Linux – USB to RS232 Serial Port Adapter (Transparent Green) Reviews

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

Pros:
Cheap.
Works just "plug and play" on Linux system I tested it with. I tested with Fedora Linux.
Cons:
I have read that this device meeds messing with drivers on Windows system. I have not tried that.
Other:
Works well on Linux (Fedora distribution tested).
Very compact device.
Does what it promises to do.
Uses well a chipset well supported on Linux systems.
I have not done any heavy testing if everything works well (RS-232 handshake line handling usually does not work well on many USB-RS232 converters), but for simple applications this worked well.
Bottomline:
If you are looking for a cheap USB-RS232 adapter to use with a Linux system this is the one to get.
