I have ordered two of these, and both have come from the seller GEARMO. The first cable works as expected... however I needed a second cable so that I can debug multiple micro controller devices communicating at the same time. The second cable that I ordered recently (several weeks after the original) does not work at all, it has a problem or issue of some kind - and currently I am dissatisfied with this order from GEARMO and the problem I am having with the cable they sent me.

Sometimes after plugging in the cable it lights up with a solid red light, sometimes it does not light up at all, but it's never recognized as a USB device and never shows up on the system as a USB device as is the case with the original cable I purchased (which still works). I know this second cable that GEARMO shipped me is defective as the first cable I already have works fine and these are supposed to be identical cables, and appear to be identical but the second one does not work - both came from the seller GEARMO.

I have filed for a replacement/return request because of a defective product via Amazon as I am a prime member, and as received this cable via a prime order, and I am awaiting to hear form GEARMO customer service, and will updated my review with their response and and indication of the type of customer service I received - either good, or bad, but I wanted other customers to be aware.

I will update this review (and my star rating) about this product from the seller GEARMO after they have had a few days to respond to the problem I am having with the cable they shipped me on this order.

Updated: I did eventually receive a refund, so have changed the 1 star back to 3 star just because of the hassle. The first cable I received that did work, is still working and I'm satisfied with it.

I build a lot of electronic projects that often need some kind of debug port. I design in RS232 level shifters to take up space and time. Then I have to find a USB to RS232 converter anyway to get the signal to the PC

Using this, I just put a header on the board an save space and design time

Not for general consumer, but good for hobbyist and engineers.

You can't go wrong with FTDI chip. They work reliably on all the platforms (Mac, Win, & Linux).
Construction is ok...

If you have any doubts about whether to get an FTDI-based serial adapter or a Prolific one (since I see a lot of Prolific-based products, especially on the Asian markets), don't waste money with Prolific: the drivers are horrible and don't work well on latest version of the OS. Get an adapter with FTDI chip.

I need this cable to configure 2 XBee Wire Series 1's. Haven't had a lot of time playing around with it but personally, I think the price for the cable is a little pricey to me! Have to get one since I need it.

My cable is defective. No +5V output at the connector. By the time I got to use it it is out of the return period so it goes to the trash. I had good success with FTDI Basic board from Sparkfun but I need now an encapsulated solution.

Needed a USB cable of this type for my old Rover's fuel injection computer. Like the fact that it has the lights to show you status built right into the plug.

Some may find that they need an older driver to get this to work with, for instance, HRS software. But the device is well made and does--and is--exactly as described. Quick delivery as well. W8OY
