StarTech ICUSB2328I 8 Port USB to DB9 RS232 Serial Adapter Hub – Industrial DIN Rail and Wall Mountable
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I purchased this for my Cisco lab environment. Swapping console cables is generally a pain when doing Cisco labs or mocking up test environments.After looking at various adapters and the chipsets they use, I chose StarTech based upon previous product purchases & satisfaction along with the fact that this uses the FTDI serial chipset. Plus it's rated for Industrial use, so it well built. I also like that it retains the COM port settings should you unplug it or use a different USB port.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: Newegg rocks as always!

5 out of 5 eggs Great for Xbox Media Extender (Update) 03/01/2013

This review is from: SiliconDust HDHomeRun Dual HDHR3-US HD Digital Network Attached TV Tuner Device

Pros: I solved the 3-5 seconds skipping forward & rewinding on LiveTV & DVR content: enabled Flow Control on my PC's network card. Problem solved! The PC was sending data to the Xbox at gigabit speeds, but the Xbox was only 100 Mbps. Hopefully this helps someone else out!

Cons: None after enabling Flow Control~!

5 out of 5 eggs Great for Xbox Media Extender 01/16/2013

This review is from: SiliconDust HDHomeRun Dual HDHR3-US HD Digital Network Attached TV Tuner Device

Pros: For an old HDTV projection TV without a HD tuner integrated, this device is perfect when combined with an Xbox! Being able to have an EPG and full DVR is perfect. I was looking at other devices to do similar content (The original DVR company), but didn't want a monthly fee.

Cons: Channels initially tune a bit slow 3-5 seconds. Initial video delay of 3-5 seconds when changing channels, even over a gigabit network. When watching DVR content, skipping forward 30 seconds takes 3-5 seconds, but once you're a few minutes into the show, it's flawless. My Win7 PC has SATA2 drives meant for video processing so I feel it's a limitation within the Media Center & Xbox 360 Extender. It's really not that bad for the few hours a week of TV I watch. No different than the delay for NetFlix to buffer to HD quality.

Other Thoughts: Overall it's very similar to the AT&T U-Verse guide I've been familiar with for the last 3 years. I'm very happy with the purchase and the ability to watch TV on my other Win7 PC's in the house is an added bonus. If you're looking for a home DVR to use with OTA TV and you have an Xbox or HTPC, this is a great setup!
