    Pros: Very small size. USB connector fits perfectly into the PC connector. Pins are correctly labeled , even on both sides. Comes with four cables with color codes and connectors for rapid testing. Finally it's a good price.

    Cons: No cons for the moment !

    Other: Very useful to connect to UART controlled device to a USB port and test it or program it from the PC, tablet... For first testing I used an HyperTerminal type program and read directly the signal output from the wires supplied.: I could change easily the protocol, baud rate... etc

    Pros: Good quality assempling. Once installed the Silabs drivers, this converter worked at the first attempt and it was detected as a Virtual serial port by the PC.

    Cons: There are no instructions or drivers included in the envelope, but they can easily found from the site of the manufacturer of CP2102 (www.silabs.com). Plenty of utilities can be downloaded from the same site.

    Other: With this USB to UART converter I connected easily my PC to the internal serial interface of a router that was accepting only 3.3V levels. It was then a matter of few minutes to access the bootloader to recover my router from a bad flash.

    Pros: It's a good aid to output serial port message from my Hackberry arm board. Especially for debugging u-boot, which can not be found in dmesg. I lived in the dark for a month when hacking linux kernel for my allwinner a10 device(mk802 ii and hackberry board). With the help of this little guy, I can investing the issues. The CP2102 chips are supported by Linux. I only need to plug in to my pc. It's good to go.

    Cons: None.

    Other: Highly recommend for those debug the kernel.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It is good and cheap and very useful for DIY project the driver can be easily found with a little bit of browsing. The driver works vell with win x86 and x 64 systems

    Cons: Unfortunately the driver for linux is not working properly this is related due to the chip it is using so just keep that in mind.

    Other: Can be bought price is fair and the quality is good. And I think the plastic case is a nice touch in order to protect the device.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: this item allows make a serial communication throught TX and RX pins. I use it with AVR chips and hyperterminal V7.5, this item is very imprescindible for me. Also, another feature is as power source of 3.3Vdc and 5Vdc and GND, a good extra operation.

    Cons: have wires with 4 pins but this item have 5 pins (5Vdc, 3.3Vdc, GND, TX and RX) therefore is a pin without a wire. also this item came without driver, but is easy to find it. Try usb serial2011 ftdi on you browser

    Other: install in you PC hyperterminal and try RX and TX, connect TX to RX in ftdi, if you send a word or number you can see in screen the same word or number.

    Pros: I use it to recover my IPCams firmware, from wrong firmware update. Very easy to use, if you know what to do with it. I fix the two cameras in few minutes.

    Cons: Works out of the box on Windows 7. No drivers needs. It support, a 5V and a 3.3V, usefull for mamy applications. Comes with 4pin flexible cable, so you can easily connect it to any application.

    Other: it is recommended to anyone, who need it, and know to use it.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Standard USB to serial converter (but not with RS232 levels), works out of the box with Ubuntu Linux. Probably useful to connect to the serial port on routers and other embedded devices. On Ubuntu 11.10 you need to remove the brltty daemon first (but that's their bug). A five-lead cable is included. It can supply 5V power to your doomsday device, which can be very useful. I've run it at 115200 baud and not missed a single bit.

    Cons: One of mine came with the pins bent. They could be bent back without any probems, so I guess the packaging could be better.

    Other: Buy two, you'll need them.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This is a tool that everyone which likes electrical engineering and/or hardware (and often software) hacking needs to have.
    It will not work on standard RS232 levels, which is somewhat bad, but for that you can buy a usb-serial adapter anywhere in the world, including here.
    It has, instead, a 5v and a 3.3v TTL interface, which is often needed for a lot of things. You can use that to talk to a microcontroller directly on TTL, instead of having to have a ttl-to-rs232 logic converter (read: max232 IC)

    Cons: I think the only con that I might raise is that it don't pack a FT232 IC, which as a friend of mine says, is the best usb-serial device on Windows. Since I do Linux, it doesn't change a thing.
    Besides that, there's little to no cons.

    Other: If you know what ttl-to-rs232 logic converter means, you probably need one of these.
    In doubt, just buy it, as it's really cheap, you might need it in the future.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - Simple device
    - Small size
    - Lightweight and
    - Working.
    - It includes a cable, so you can easily connect it to any application you are going to use it.

    Cons: - It could be cheaper
    - And maybe a little bit more protected, like in some kind of case... but maybe that may make it look worst.

    Other: if you know what to do with one divice such as this... then its just as good as any other one.
