This review is from: SIIG 2-Port RS232 Serial PCIe with 16950 UART Model JJ-E02111-S1

Pros: Came with W8 drivers. Nearly plug & play. Newegg beat other retailers on price.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggs What were they thinking? 04/01/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 64-bit (Full Version)

Pros: Boots quickly

Cons: Just messed up. No start button, the very effective one stop shopping that most were used to is gone. I can't believe how many legacy devices don't work & do not have W8 drivers. And the drivers that are out there seem to be problematic. Some have taken my computer down & I couldn't restart. I had to S/D & Reboot. Try to find a PCI - serial port card that works with W8 (yes I have some very expensive devices that run DB9). Frankly, I did not believe all the complaints. But now I know first hand. It really sucks. No wonder new PC sales are down. Maybe I am just an old dog.

Other Thoughts: Don't do it. Get W7 if you can.
