2 new COM ports just as good as the built-in – 2-Port Serial Port RS-232 PCI Controller Card Reviews

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

Pros:
Works great with industrial equipment which still requires RS-232 interface. The price is not too high and the build quality is good. Included drivers work with no problem with WinXP. The two new ports come up as normal COM ports and work as good as the built-in ones.
Cons:
None really.
Other:
None really.
Bottomline:
If you need RS-232 connection, have a free PCI slot and no available COM ports - this is your choice. Or buy one of the USB-RS-232 convertors, but most of them don't work with industrial equipment.
