SYBA Model SY-USB-S USB 1.1 to Serial Port Adapter
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Great Linux support 08/21/2012

This review is from: SYBA Model SY-USB-S USB 1.1 to Serial Port Adapter

Pros: Cheap. Flexible with external USB cable. PL2303 devices work perfectly in Linux. I've been using a couple of these with laptops (and newer desktops) running Linux to connect to serial consoles on embedded systems for years with nary an issue. I always keep one in my tool bag.

Cons: Finding working PL2303 Windows drivers took some googling. One star off for lame drivers on bundled CD. Try

Other Thoughts: What's this I hear about counterfeit PL2303 chips?
