works as advertised in windows – Serial RS232 PCMCIA Card Reviews

posted by meridor on 04/09/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Works as advertised, with windows. Windows drivers install ok on Windows XP.
Cons:
No linux or other OS drivers, only windows.
Windows drivers not signed, but install just fine.
Identifies as RS232B, not C.
Probably not compatible with legacy MS-DOS apps (cannot choose port or interrupt for pcmcia, windows does that automatically and does not choose snatdard com i/o ports or interrupts)
Other:
Identifies as "HT RS232B CARD" by "HT TECH. Co. Ltd. Unsure of the exact chipset.
Bottomline:
Tested with winxp and an old serial mouse. Works fine. (The mouse will need a manual refresh in windows' device manager once.)
