This review is from: StarTech ICUSB23216F 16 Port Rackmount FTDI USB to Serial COM Adapter Hub - RS232 Multiplexer
Pros: - Rock solid FTDI chipset (the competing PL2303 is garbage) - Well-built, easily rack-mountable - Indicator lights help identify which systems are talking
Cons: When I connected this to a Linux machine, the ports order is different between the /dev/ttyUSBX numbering and the numbering of the LEDs: Port 1: /dev/ttyUSB1 Port 2: /dev/ttyUSB0 Port 3: /dev/ttyUSB3 Port 4: /dev/ttyUSB2 ...
Other Thoughts: ttywatch is an excellent piece of software to use with this device. It allows you to expose a port via telnet, and also allows you to log all data sent to/from the port.
