Worked fine with putty accessing "com3" 2/18/2019 12:45:20 PM

Pros: Worked with windows 10, no need for hyperterm, just the free download of putty

Cons: requires adapter to get to console port of most managed switches.

Excellent product, just plug and play 4/20/2018 9:12:13 AM

Pros: The adapter cable is great. It has everything integrated into the DB9 connector. I just plugged it in and went to work.

Cons: It isn't the least expensive, but is worth it if you use this kind of a setup often. Would like to see a gender changer included, that would complete the package.

just what i needed! 1/19/2018 9:45:22 AM

Pros: new motherboards seldom provide for old 232 devices, so get this adapter and use a USB port. (I have an old, temperamental PDA/Phone and this adapter did the trick when more expensive PCIe cards failed!)

Cons: none

Worked Perfectly with Windows 10 Pro 9/5/2017 7:18:24 AM

Pros: System automatically detected and installed drivers for the cable as soon as it was plugged in, I just needed to locate the new COM port in Device Manager

Cons: Installation was so fast I wasn't sure I needed to load drivers from the provided disk or not.

Overall Review: Purchased from another retailer due to shipping needs; otherwise if you need a null modem DB9 style connection, this should work without issue.

Works well in Win7 and Win10 1/20/2017 10:58:21 AM

Pros: Once they are set up, they work without problems.
Works with Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit), and Windows 10.

Cons: In almost every case we have to manually install the drivers which is a bit of a slow process if you have to search for it every time. We ended up saving the files to our network to keep using. We have purchased at least 20 of these in the last year.

I bought the adapter to connect a Ham radio to a laptop with no serial port. 7/3/2016 4:27:13 PM

Pros: nothing so far

Cons: Unfortunately the drivers for the cable don't load onto my Windows 10 machine. So the cable is useless to me.

Just fine. 8/30/2015 8:54:06 AM

Pros: It worked, the cable is pretty solid.

I didn't need to register an account to get the drivers.

Cons: Win7 needs a driver you download from StarTech website.

Overall Review: Connected to a Misomex MP5000 plotting table that's ~25 years old. The cable/drivers worked fine, set it up exactly as I had the 10yearold D*** PC setup.
