Performance

The drivers are not signed or certified for XP, probably for good reason. XP drivers v1.4 from ATEN's Website BSOD'ed both WinXP Home and Professional on a Medion laptop when connected to a Garmin GPS sending NMEA codes. CD drivers v1.3 did the same thing. The CD Win98 drivers did not work on a Toshiba 320CT. The Website Win98 drivers do seem to work. Short answer-- There are better products out there. --NLG

My computer has only one serial port, which I use to connect to my Belkin UPS. Then I bought a Pinnacle PCTV card with remote control. The remote control receiver needed another serial port. That's why I purchased this adaptor. Yes, it's driver is not certified for Windows XP, but I installed it anyway, and it worked fine. As you can see, transmitting remote control signals does not need high data rate. So the bottom line is: you will be satisfied by its performance as long as you don't put too much work load on it.
