The Lava Octopus-550 provides the easiest way to add eight 16550 UART serial ports to a PC system while using only one system IRQ!
This eight-port board is one of the most dependable multi-port serial boards around. It is an ideal communications solution in an ISP or remote access system environment. The Octopus-550 is also popular in Point-of-Sale systems, where it is a very cost-effective alternative to many other eight-port boards on the market.
This review is from: LAVA Computer 8 Port Serial Card (PCI Bus 16550) Model OCTOPUS-550
Pros: After installation, it works just fine.
Cons: -Works on Windows 7, but it's not plugNplay. There's a trick in the system files that's too complicated to explain here. For this, contact Lava.
Other Thoughts: -Would like to have much better PlugNPlay for Windows 7.
