Prolific chipset ! The adapter works great. I tried it on an HP laptop running Windows 10, it found drivers right away. I was able to use the update feature in the Device manager and it found updated drivers. I also tried it on a Dell desktop running Windows 7 and it worked great there as well. The only drawback is the female threaded studs on the side. I wanted to use it in a rack where the PC and the device with the console port were in the same cabinet and the 2.5ft length would have been just right. With the female threaded studs, you cannot directly attach it to the console port of the device. The console (DB9-Female) have the studs also. I had to use a male to female extension cable, I wish the studs were removable. Other adapters sold here have the male threads that will directly attach to a console port. I suspect it was designed to be used with an extension cable with the length at 2.5 feet. Still the product works great. I have tried adapters with other chipsets or fake Prolific chipsets that do not work correctly. Nice to see the real thing. 5Works for MicroWizard gate to pinewood derby software on multiple Windows 10 systems Several cub scout packs in my town share a pinewood derby track with a MicroWizard gate. The serial to USB connection we bought 9 years ago would not work at all with Windows 10, and had issues with Windows 8. The driver on the provided CD worked fine for me, and another pack reported no issues with downloading a driver. The cable communicated with at least 3 different derby tracking software titles with just adjusting COMM port settings to match. 5Simple product, simple design, simply works. Ordered another one for my "moonlighting" kit. Used it to access the console of a brand-new Brocade ICX-6610p from a Toshiba Z30 running Windows 8.1 with puTTy. Updated the firmware on the switch over tFTP using said console connection.That's pretty much "geek" for "It works really good".I didn't do anything with drivers or anything, just plugged it in with the laptop on, fired up puTTy, set up the com port (can't remember what it was called, but if you're using a terminal console, you know how to check and set your COM); then I fired up the switch and it all started talking.Made me much happier than dusting off a machine old enough to have a serial port, installing win7 or ubuntu on it, and using it for 4 hours while I configured a few switches. Probably would have taken me longer to do that than it took to ship this to me. 5Make sure you get a converter with the right chipset Purchased to connect an older HP Agilent data logger to a new computer without a serial port. Would work great, but crash intermittently (wiping out the data file - no good). Installed updates for everything, reinstalled USB drivers, nothing worked. Finally read that prolific vs. FTDI chipset may be the problem. Purchased an FTDI chipset converter, and problem was solved. So - this device may work just fine, but it didn't work for me, and I will be sticking with FTDI chipset devices by default going forward unless I'm using equipment that specs prolific. Again - problem could have been with the user - maybe I should have known better, but none of the troubleshooting guides suggested I might need the other style. Plus - it was easy to install! And it was inexpensive. Their online tech support wasn't bad either, but it never ID'd the real root cause. 2Complete junk. Windows bundled driver doesn't work with it ... Complete junk. Windows bundled driver doesn't work with it. The installation cd asks you for the Operating System, and then attempts to install the appropriate driver for that OS. I have Windows 10. After installation, it didn't even detect the cable. In Device Manager, if I scan for hardware changes, it then detects it, but it errors with failed to load driver. I've attempted using the Windows driver and the Prolific driver, and both fail with Error 31. I tried different USB ports, and different computers. This is junk. Unfortunately I've seen this issue over many years with Prolific chipset USB to serial devices. 1Only people having issues seem to be the people like me that use this in a USB3 port Works in Windows 7, 8.1, and Windows 10. Using it to control multiple telescopes from Astrophysics, Celestron and Synta (Orion and Skywatcher).Windows 10 1803 update broke the Serial to USB driver, here is how I fixed it on my MSI gaming laptop. Reboot with the item not plugged in, then reboot again. Once my laptop rebooted clean I removed the old driver, rebooted again and then plugged the adapter into the USB2 port on my laptop and it worked. Only people having issues seem to be the people like me that use this in a USB3 port, or a USB3 powered hub connected to a USB3 port on the machine. These devices do not need the speed or power of USB3, so don't worry that you are losing anything by downgrading the ports.For anyone out there that reads this and needs more info, I am using an Intel based laptop, older Intel chip-set with integrated USB2 and USB3, and an ancient 7+ year old laptop that has a "not certain" chip-set and only USB2 ports on it and the adapter works fine on each. 5If you are connecting to a male console port of a managed switch, there are alternatives. Got this to connect to a Cisco SG300-10 managed switch / router. What I failed to notice was that this had a male end to it and I needed a female end. This ultimately worked with I paired it with a DB9 Male to Female converter that I purchased at Fry's.But if you need to connect to a male managed switch console port as well, you may want to try one of these instead: TECHTOO USB 2.0 to RS232 DB9 Serial Cable FEMALE Converter Adapter with Prolific PL2303 Chipset. It doesn't need to be that exact brand / model but this type of unit will accomplish the same thing without a converter cable. 4Seems to be fine I didn't want to spend too much money on a USB to serial converter because the last one I had, which also contains a Prolific chipset, got bricked. Apparently Prolific has no qualms about bricking your products via their drivers.I didn't really want to reward them for bricking my chip, but the only alternative is FTDI who also has gotten caught bricking converters. So, yay, another Prolific RS232-to-USB converter!Seems to be a correct implementation of RS-232. I was able to connect it to my AVR STK-500 that dates back from the era when computers had serial ports and it worked perfectly.I kinda wish that it was a little box thing where I could plug in a longer USB cable instead of a cable. Or some activity lights. But this isn't exactly a high-end product. 4Need a console connection to a switch, but don t have a serial port? This is your answer. Four stars because the driver situation was a little sketchy, but it s an invaluable addition to my toolkit. It came with a driver CD, which seems a bit archaic since a modern laptop is about as likely to have an optical drive as it is a serial port. So it redirects you to the Sabrent website, which is fine, and they have 32- and 64- bit drivers for all your modern OSes, which is good and proper. When I went to download one, it took me to a third-party website that contained a warning about counterfeit products and helpfully had a list of authorized vendors...which did not include Sabrent. Well then.But it works, so if it s a counterfeit, it s a good one. Installation was a breeze, and I was merrily programming switches like it was my job within a few minutes. Come to think of it, it is my job, so that s worked out well all around. 4Good enough for the PS1 Dexdrive I bought this USB to Serial adapter to use with a PS1 DexDrive. (It backs up PS1 memory cards to your PC)I also bought the DexDrive and a new Retrobit PSI memory card off Amazon for this project.The USB to Serial adapter software was easy to install using the included DVD.After the software was installed, I connected the adapter physically.The adapter LED came on and I could see the new device in Device manager.I searched youtube and typed "dexdrive". I looked at an older video by Chris Fox.I pulled the Dexplorer software from a website using his instructions.I installed the Dexplorer software on my Win7 PC.I copied all of my data from my OEM memory card to my Retrobit memory card using my PS1.My PS1 can read/write/copy to both memory cards currently.I tested both memory cards using the DexPlorer software.The DexDrive DID NOT see my OEM PS1 memory card. (It works on my PS1 though)The DexDrive DID see my Retrobit PS1 memory card. (Successful backup + restore using my PC)I am glad to be able to backup my PS1 memory cards. (In 2019, really??)This is good in case my OEM card finally dies, a natural disaster occurs, or some evil person steals my PS1 stuff. 4
