I purchased this adapter after fighting with the PL-2303 based adapters which cause BSOD in Windows 7 64-bit. While it was a bit more expensive, it's a well made unit with a nice long cord with a TX/RX led embedded in the housing. Windows and linux work great out of the box due to the ftdi chipset which is the best usb to serial chip available.

When I got a new computer the OS was Windows 7 (64 bit machine). My USB to RS232 Serial Port adapter that I had previously purchased elsewhere that had the Prolific driver failed to work. After numerous downloads of drivers that were supposed to work on a 64 bit machine I gave up. I use my serial port adapter to connect my Yaseu FT-950 Amateur Radio to my computer. After about six months I tried the drivers again and the original serial port adapter still didn't work. I then searched Amazon and found this one with the FTDI Chipset and drivers. I replaced the other one with this and it works perfectly. I am able to control my radio via my computer and read the frequency information directly into to radio logs. I highly recommend this to all.

I bought this cable to connect my laptop to network equipment via the Cisco console connector. My previous experience with a cable based on the Prolific PL2303HX chipset has not been good (hard to find Windows 7 drivers, frequent BSOD, etc.) so I opted for this somewhat more expensive cable that uses the FTDI chipset and have not been disappointed. Upon plugging the cable in the first time, Windows 7 automatically located and loaded drivers and then updated them to the latest version without any intervention. The cable works as expected and I have yet to experience a BSOD since switching from the old cable. Shipping was free and immediate. What more could I ask?

This cable works really nice, I plugged it to my Win7 x64 and the Serial port was detected right away, I didn't have to download 3rd party drivers or anything. I don't get BSOD, no crashes, the cable just works. Totally worth the money.

I purchased this cable to tether my TS-60 Morningstar Solar Controller to my laptop. This needed to be done so I could upgrade the firmware, get live stats on my battery and PV relay state and make fine-tune adjusts if need be. I received the package promptly and was directed to go to a website to install the proper drivers for operation. All went almost flawlessly and I am now able to connect to my laptop without a hitch. I say 'almost flawlessly' because I did have to alter the cable minutely. The RS232 port is internal on the TS-60, with very little wasted space. This being the case, I was forced to remove the outer casing from the Serial side in order to make it fit. I rate the cable five stars because I do not consider this a fault on the part of the manufacturer, and even without the security casing the cable worked fine.

This sure made my life easier and solved a host of problems. After searching everywhere the salesman at Radio Shack suggested Amazon which was the only place you could find a Windows 7 compatable adapter.

Thank You

This cable works as advertised - hate using old technology but programing cable required serial connection that new laptops do not have - plug and play
