4 out of 5 eggsGood card - Poor documentation

Pros: Inexpensive and overall good board. Well worth of price.

Cons: The documentation is poor (as it is for the whole product line). The disk and the website will direct you to load the wrong drivers. Bottom line, look at the board, record the chip type, find the drivers that match THE chip type on the board and away you go.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card, but not all ports recognized by Linux.

Pros: 6-ports, price, NewEgg service.

Cons: 1) Additional brackets take up valuable slots on a Micro-ATX board.
2) Not all ports are working under Linux. Haven't had the chance to mess with IRQs and IO ports. Ah, the good old days are almost back. :)

Other Thoughts: Syba should really think about making it 3-ports x 2 slots instead of 2-ports x 3 slots.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Use in Production Environment!

Pros: Installs well, add ons are easy to configure. Data transfer speeds are outstanding.

Cons: Drivers are horrible. Very little amount of documentation. Parts seem cheap. Baud Rates and Crystal Timing seem to be off. The data is transferred quickly, but there is a 20-30% chance that it will be corrupted when sending and recieving high amounts of data using FIFO buffers and high UART settings.

Other Thoughts: Good for personal use. Buy something more expensive for a production environment.

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work

Pros: Great NewEgg service - fast. Product is cheap.

Cons: This product did not work for us on our IBM P4 Windows XP-SP2 systems.
Crashed the moment I applied power to a serial device that was connected to any of its ports. Downloaded and used the latest drivers for XP - no help. It simply wouldn't handle the interrupt.

Other Thoughts: We found another brand and it worked fine - so it wasn't our PC as far as we can tell.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Serial Card!

Pros: Large number of serial ports.

Cons: Requires multiple brackets, possibly eliminating the use of PCI slots. Some of the header pins slightly bent (easy to fix).

Other Thoughts: Great card. My only real complaint is that headers aren't labeled and the instructions don't help in this respect. Guessed the correct orientation of cables on the header (the red stripe on the cable should be on the same side as the arrow on the PC board).

Download the drivers from the web. You must go through the windows xp driver install 6 times! One for each port.

Overall a great card.
