Works but Drver is hard to find7/8/2012
The adapter does what it says it does, but the included driver disk has a number of drivers for different OS's and different products. There is no documentation to tell you which driver to use.
May be better for an older OS5/23/2012
We encountered trouble installing the provided driver on Windows 7 x64. I suspect this device would work fine on an older operating system such as WIndows XP or mac/linux, but I have not tried. It's price makes it worth a try, but we haven't had success on our newer laptop.
Worse device I ever bought3/15/2012
This usb to serial device came with old drivers (Vista) & didnt work on my new laptop. To make things worse, windows replaced it with a win7 driver that did nothing but error.
Says it supports Mac, doesn't say you have to find the drivers yourself. Still haven't had any luck. I now have a router that I think is secretly laughing at me for not using windows to connect to it like a normal person.
After installing and reinstalling the drivers from the included cd (file names are full of Chinese characters) I finally got this adapter to work, once. After that my software would either fail to connect to my Garmin GPS attached to this adapter, or the data transfer would fail halfway.
Comes with a driver CD and once you install it, everything works. (Check device manager to locate which COM it connected to).
