Easy DB9 serial connector for your 10 pin serial header
Pros: It works, if you have a 10 pin serial header on your motherboard this is what you need to provide access for a DB9 serial cable at the rear of you computer case. Well made, I did not see any difference in materials and construction of this and the cables and connectors that are typical of the mother boards and cases that I have.
Cons: none for my application
Other Thoughts: These are not cons but characteristics the user should understand:
Requires a slot opening at the rear of the computer case. This should not be a problem. In recent years my computer cases come with 6 to 8 slot openings while the mother boards have (typically) 3 or 4 expansion slots.
Order carefully if you have a full size case. The one I bought came with a short bracket rather than a full size bracket. This is not a serious problem. This is not a structural item - very little strain relief is required. I found that I could securely screw the bracket to the case at the top, then carefully connect the DB9 cable. Once attached there is no problem related to stability or security of connection despite the fact that the short bracket provides no support at the bottom. If you frequently move your pc you might want to order the part number with the full size bracket.

Pros: I needed a serial port to operate an older PlusDeck 2c cassette to mp3 recorder/player and my newer motherboard does not have a serial port connection. I took a chance and ordered this cable to covert the serial port on the PlusDeck 2c to usb 2.0. This cable works perfect and I can now save all my old cassettes to mp3. No driver install cd was needed. Windows 10 64bit installed it almost immediately.
Other Thoughts: Would recommend this cable to anyone needing to add a serial port connection. Excellent price & quality!
