1 out of 5 eggsLocks up application

Pros: None in my case, might work for some things

Tried drivers from CD that came with it and downloaded the driver for the PL2303 USB to Serial bridge from the Prolific Technology website.

Cons: Will not work with HD SERT application in Windows 7 Pro 64, will not recognize or communicate with interface device.

Locks up the application in Windows XP SP3 although it does start to recognize the interface device.

Other Thoughts: Another $10 item to throw in the stuff that doesn't work for me box

4 out of 5 eggsworks with Windows 7

Pros: Works fine with Windows 7/XP. Use for dial up modem on my laptop when no VPN available. Tried no-name adapter first but ended up wasting my time and throwing it away.

Cons: none, did what i wanted

Other Thoughts: no-name kind may have knock-off chips that aren't compatible with latest Windows drivers. Stick with a name brand and Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good quality for cost. Does everything it was intended to do. This gives access to serial devices for boards w/o a serial port.

Cons: Doesn't cover every device and is not exactly what I expected. Does not auto detect every device.
