Works great, doesn't fail. can easily swap RS232 programming cables with it and it still works.
The original drivers on the CD gave me a lot of problems. I would have to reboot windows all the time to change cables. reinserting the card wouldn't work.
I installed drivers again and it works great now but I cant remember if im using the same of different (newer?) drivers but whatever they are its absolutely flawless now.
feels a little bit flimsy as the RS232 end is a lot bigger than the rest of the card.
Ive never tried USB to RS232 cables but have just ordered one that I will try. They use virutal COM ports while this via PCMCIA is on a hardware level so no virtual or emulation crap.
This is very reliable, get one if your laptop has no RS232 and you need it.
