Solid device for legacy connections
This review is from: SIIG 1-Port RS232 Serial PCI with 16550 UART Model JJ-P01311-S1
Pros: I needed to upgrade some workstations but still have the capability to connect to some legacy devices that only have DB9 serial connections, so this was a logical choice. I've had good luck with SIIG in the past and this was no exception, as the drivers worked no problem in Windows 7 32bit. I've tried other manufacturers who make cheaper versions of this type of device and have had issues with drivers, so I'll be sticking with SIIG in the future. Also includes half height plate for rackmount hardware in case you need it, which could be useful.
Cons: I haven't experienced any problems yet.
