1 out of 5 eggsShoddy, rebate denied

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Shoddy quality
Rebate was not honored

Other Thoughts: Figured I'd give it a try since it was practically free with the rebate. First the product was very shoddy, and to add insult to injury, the rebate was denied.

Don't bother with this one.

5 out of 5 eggsHave Patience - Does work with Win7-64

Pros: Long cord. It works!

Cons: Most folks do not have patience to install correct drivers.

Other Thoughts: My system is Windows 7 - 64 bit. Windows 7 wants to install the driver it thinks you need. If you go to the Prolific web-site, it will give you a different driver. Just do this - before you plug the adapter in the USB port, install the driver that comes on the mini-disk named WIN7 ... Restart your computer and then plug in your adapter. If it still does not work because Windows 7 still thinks you need an updated driver, simply roll-back or manually select the driver 3.0.1.0 dated 2/12/2007. None of the others worked, but this one does. Have patience. It does work. Regarding the "counterfeit chips", cannot say these are or are not, but after I got the correct driver loaded, I ran the chip-check program supplied on the Prolific website (comes with their driver download) and it reports it as a genuine chip.

Good product. I am satisfied for 99 cents after rebate.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine with correct driver

Pros: The correct driver is on the vendor website:

http://www.kingwin.com/download_center/index.php?act=view&id=46

I installed the driver, and plugged-in the USB side and it came right up "This device is working properly." Driver tab shows: Prolific 2/12/2007 Driver Version 3.0.1.0
That's it - works fine.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: none

1 out of 5 eggsShoulda read the reviews...

Pros: Inexpensive, quick shipping.

Cons: Never worked, multiple PCs with several different approaches to loading drivers.
The chipset in this device is clearly faulty as we tried for days on end to get the thing to install... I bought another brand at a higher price point and it loaded almost instantly.

Other Thoughts: Read the reviews... they aren't kidding.

1 out of 5 eggsCounterfeit IC, windows compatibiliy issues

Pros: Shiny? New? Can't think of anything else that's good about this awkward paperweight.

Cons: Made in China. Uses low quality counterfeit chinese IC that causes compatibility issues.

Other Thoughts: I could not get this thing to work at all. Windows 7 64 bit finds it just fine but gives code (10) errors. I tried the kingwin driver and the Prolific PL2303 driver with no luck. The Prolific manual specifically notes the counterfeit ICs and warns against it.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Does what it says, its just a cable.. lol

Cons: I did have a issue with it working under Windows 7 Pro 64bit as i read in someone else review but i never tried kingwin driver, just let Windows do the automatic thing and never worked. But i swapped it with one on a XP machine so it all worked out for me.

Other Thoughts: I would suggest that newegg puts up a link to a correct driver for this with Windows 7 and/or 8 as most of us now are on to these platforms.

4 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: It's free after MIR. It works with the supplied drivers in Windows 7 x64.

Cons: It's not compatible with Windows 8/8.1

Other Thoughts: Install the drivers from the mini CD first before plugging it in. Don't use the drivers supply by Windows Update. Driver version 3.0.1.0 dated 2/12/2007 works. Set the port speed in the driver property page. Prolific PL-2303 XA/HXA chip.

1 out of 5 eggsAbsolute Disaster for me.

Pros: None.

Cons: I bought this as it had a 5ft USB cable which is more convenient than the serial-usb converter I now use.

Windows 7: I tried both the Kingwin drivers and the Prolific v1.9.0 drivers. Neither worked properly for me. If you do get the converter to enumerate on your PC properly it loses characters at 115KB, at least it does in my setup.

Under Window 8 I couldn't get it to work at all.

1 out of 5 eggsDrivers, Drivers, Drivers

Pros: -Not sure

Cons: - Due to many a driver problem, I've never got this thing to work, tried it on Win XP, 7, and 8. Multiple computers of each OS too.

Other Thoughts: Find another one, and for less money,

The driver problem is known though, so maybe down the road this guy will start working after they fix it.
