5 out of 5 eggsGreat card.

Pros: Works like a serial card should.
Just plug and play and load the drivers.

Cons: None. We are using this run door security software that needs a serial port and it works just fine.

Other Thoughts: I was already using the first com port on the Gigabye motherboard and needed a second port for the door security. That motherboard has two old pci slots so I was actually able to use one of them!

5 out of 5 eggsWorked like it should

Pros: Chose these because the USB/Serial cables we had didn't play nice with the Point-Of-Sale software we were using. These worked perfectly.

Cons: PCI isn't quite as quick and easy as USB if that counts...

5 out of 5 eggsHooked to CNC machine--does what it needs to do

Pros: Bought this card to link an old Matsuura CNC turning center to a modern computer. Cheap and effective. Windows 7 automatically found the drivers. Had to set baud rate and stop bits to match machine in Device Manager. Still amazing that a machine built in the 1980s can talk to a modern computer.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy and product

Pros: Almost as easy as plug and play, install into an empty PCI slot install software and off you go.

Cons: none, not always useful.

Other Thoughts: Some boards don't have any com ports this comes in handy, in fact most boards don't have com ports nowadays. Not as useful for everyday use.

5 out of 5 eggsA-OK!

Pros: Easy install. Win 7 64 drivers (and a host of other OS drivers) are included on driver CD.

Cons: MINOR: Item description on here and on box doesn't specifically say it's Win 7 64bit compatible.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to work with my older GPS which has a serial port only. Upgraded PC didn't have a serial port, only USB.
Didn't want or need to upgrade to a USB equipped GPS, so this fit the bill nicely and for a good price.

2 out of 5 eggsdead

Pros: easy to install, worked fine initially. Recognized by Win7 immediately.

Cons: I think it is dead after 1 month, no longer seen in device manager.

Other Thoughts: Going to try the usb to serial, maybe that will be more durable. Don't understand why this failed, it was only popping a cash drawer.
