A very affordable way to add a serial port to a USB-only computer. Converter itself is well-built and seems sturdy.
No indication as to what the controller is inside. This is important for many USB-to-serial applications.
Extension cable is really bad quality, doesn't match the good build quality of the converter itself.
Software comes on a small CD, which is bad since many computers cannot take it nowadays. No website to load updated software??
No place to screw serial plugs. Not really a con since torque on these plugs is usually low enough it won't come loose by itself.
If you need a converter to serial, this is one good purchase. Will work in Linux. Not sure about Mac.
