This review is from: Sabrent USB 2.0 to serial cable adapter/USB A- male &serial 9 pin male with thumbscrews connector (CB-FT1K)
Pros: Uses the FTDI chipset
Cons: My computer would not recognize the drivers on the included disc
Other Thoughts: I needed usb to rs 232 adapter, to be able to use my programing cable for my Icom ic-t90a hand held amateur (ham) radio transceiver. The reason i wanted the FTDI chipset adapter cable was most cables use the Prolific chipset and many are counterfeit and they also have driver install problems that can't be fixed as easily as this was (look at the hundreds of adapters on the big auction site from china)
The biggest problem was the drivers. The included disc was not recognized by my windows xp computer.
I thought about it for awhile and went to the FTDI website and the driver for the chipset was there. I downloaded it and was up and running in a few minutes
