4 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Works as advertised, though I have not tried the Windows management software that came with it. I have connected from Linux (9600 baud, 8n1, Hardware Flow Control ON).

Cons: To discover the appropriate serial port settings, I had to look through a lot of the manual. The firmware update instructions (suggesting the use of Windows HyperTerminal) included the serial port settings.

Other Thoughts: Just a few short blurbs at the beginning of the documentation, or stamped on the device, would save a moderately experienced admin a lot of time.
