    Pros: As most Mac users who use a lot of serial devices (all three of us), finding a good USB to serial adapter can sometimes be a pain. I've owned numerous ones and have found that the PL2303 chipset works pretty well. This little blue guy works really well with the PL2303 for Mac drivers that are out there and is super cheap. I'm gonna order probably 10 more just for peace of mind...

    Cons: The blue plastic trim is a little sloppy... but I really don't mind.

    Other: BUY TEN.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Small, compact, ships with drivers. If you need a bare bones USB->serial adapter it's hard to do better than this. It's cheap too, and can stand up to a bit of abuse.

    Cons: It doesn't have hardware flow control. That makes it difficult to use in a lot of applications. If you don't need hardware flow control this is not an issue.

    Other: I am probably going to order three or four more. It's cheap and simple, and it's missing some features, but at $3 it's hard to pass it up. A must have if you work with old computers.

    Pros: -Excelent price. The same product on other stores can cost more then $15USD. -The converter and the extension cable are separated, so you can use the extension cable if you need it. If not, you can use only the converter. -Compatible with Linux (pl2303 kernel module)

    Cons: -I haven't found any bad thing to comment.

    Other: You can use the minicom application to work with it: http://alioth.debian.org/projects/minicom On Gentoo you can install it doing: emerge minicom

  • it works ok with driver provided on CD

    posted by dan4stone on 08:18:58 G3T 03/03/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Price is very very good. he device woks ok under different operating systems.

    Cons: The quality of plastic case is medium to low. Because of strange Prolific's policy the adapter does not work with latest version of drivers downloaded from Windows Update or Prolific website. You can read the full story here: http://vk1od.net/software/ATB/PL2303.htm This is not a dx.com problem. This is the prolific market (bad) strategy. As I have already mentioned the adapter works very well with drivers provided on CD.

    Other: Overwall this is an usefull and very chip device.

    posted by fabecker on 15:29:37 G2T 24/02/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: I bought 3 units 10 months ago and I regret not having bought more. The price is unbeatable and it works perfectly on Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 64bit. Use with serial cable connected to the (at 9600 bauds) Casio agendas, and runs 100%. Simple and cheap, a tool that everyone should have.

    Cons: None at all. Maybe CD could be more organized - content only its driver.

    Other: Do not think twice, buy one!

  • Windows 7 Installation is a headache

    posted by ampaiva on 05:51:35 G2T 18/02/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Good color Easy to use Very useful since RS232 ports are extinct from new computers Very easy to install and use under WINDOWS XP The price is unbeatable

    Cons: I was not able to install this item under Windows 7. I understand that this is possible. I did some research among tons of forums. However, the installation is not straightforward. The prove of that is that there are tons of forums with this subject. I have already spent more than one hour and no success yet.

    Other: As stated above, it is not easy to install under Windows 7. I am sure the procedure is simple. However, I need some more time in order to figure this out.

  • Difficult to install over Windows 7

    posted by MuriloAndrade on 10:59:38 G2T 16/02/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Well done, works as expected, comes with mini-cd with drivers.

    Cons: Very difficult to install over Windows 7, but still, it is possible. Comes with mini-cd with many drivers, but the right one is the PL2303, although it does not work on Windows 7.

    Other: After all, it works fine for me.
