Pros:
It works great on PCs that have no serial ports or fewer than the desired number. Works a lot better than a USB dongle.
Cons:
Well, I had to open my PC to put it in, but that's to be expected by a PCI card, I'd think. You need to restart even when software says its unnecessary. Will show you a LPT port in control panel, but there is only 2 serial ports card! Also, COM ports are starting to go the way of the dinosaur, so the future usability factor is questionable.
Other:
MOSCHIP 9635 http://www.moschip.com/ for lastest drivers incl Win7.
Bottomline:
Cheap but great quality hardware!
