Works but beware! 3/18/2016 12:44:15 PM

Pros: Simple! Fast! Affordable! Works fine FOR CERTAIN THINGS in Windows 7 with Prolific drivers. Serial signal over CAT5e cable worked over 20 feet. It ran a serial mouse for hours, just fine. Warning: see below.

Cons: I suppose it could be longer, but it's fine if you use a DB9 to RJ45 (ethernet cable) adapter. Also, the driver was NOT available over Windows 7 update. (If you lose the driver disc, search for the Prolific PL2303 drivers.) The poorly labeled item description did not indicate the chip, which didn't work for me: see OTHER.

Overall Review: BEWARE: Uses the Prolific PL2303 XA / HXA chip. I wish I would have known this. It does NOT properly work for this Toyota embroidery machine, which works fine using a PL2303-RA chip instead. See details on the prolificusa website regarding PL2303.
