Strong Black Thing – USB to RS232 Adapter with USB Extension Cable (41CM Length) Reviews

posted by boober on 04/21/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Tightly-molded, firm one. Works fine with my old graphic tablet in XP. Cable included is very useful because the thing is quite too large and heavy for PC's USB socket. Usual PL2303 chip inside - must work almost everywhere.
Cons:
Bolts instead of nuts - cruel mistake of a manufacturer! Maybe You'll want to twist them out and change with parts of an old D socket. Or fix it forever with an adhesive like I did with my tablet. No separate *.inf driver on CD, just a Win installer.
Other:
It's better than that colorful thin plastic ones for its durability and strenght. Useful for work, but cannot be disassembled, so for experiments that glassy plastic ones is more suitable.
Bottomline:
Good buy for serious needs.
