Cryptic instructions, doesn’t work (yet) 6/24/2019 7:36:38 PM

Pros: well-packaged, arrived on schedule, good quality

Cons: difficult to install; poor instructions; did not work with Sharp organizer.

Overall Review: Still trying to get this to work with Sharp organizer. Error msg “incompatible device” yet the organizer works with other Win 7 x 64-bit PCs. Will try reinstall and search problems.

Driverles. Works as advertised 11/12/2017 5:20:13 AM

Pros: Driverless. Serial. Connects to networking equipment...

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: I use this, like most people now-a-days, for putty. I connect into networking equipment with this (and a serial rollover cable) and it works. I think this is just a generic device using a Chinese chip, but it works. If you need one, get it. If you don't, don't.

Great for Cisco routers 9/30/2016 4:40:30 AM

Pros: This USB/serial port was easy to install, it came with the classic MP3 disk. I needed a serial port for my Cisco router because I am practicing for my CCNT. This works great because I just used a USB port in the front of my rig and connected into the routers cord, so I didn't need to do much as far a hardware for my PC. I use PUTTY and the response time is great, no issues on my end. Shipping was fast and I had no issues, plus I got this on the cheap so its great.

Cons: None so far, its been working like a champ.

Full Win 10x64 Compatibility 1/30/2016 1:33:44 AM

Pros: Supplied driver disk has the correct latest driver on it.
Plugged it in, installed the driver from the disk and it works, works right and continues to do so.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I have tried several other com adapters with Win 10 and they were finicky at best or just didn't work. This one works.
