    Great Full Function RS-232 Serial Port

    I was leery, that at only $10, if this converter would support all 9 pins of the serial port. Much to my delight, each pin is fully functional. Some of the lower cost converters only enable pins 2 & 3 for TX & RX, pin 5 for GND, and sometimes pin 7 for RTS. With this converter, I tested all pins (DTR, CD, RTS, CTS, etc...) and they work great. This product was the perfect solution for my HAM Radio and hobby electronics projects. If you were nervous about purchasing this converter based on full RS-232 support, rest assured this converter is good to go.

    You need to download the drivers first from this site for full functionality: http://www.prolific.com.tw/eng/downloads.asp?id=31 It works for my Wideband DataLogger Innovate LC-1 (Car Tuning). Just make sure you don't have any other serial or usb devices when using this thing! Plug it it, then start your program that uses it without delay. Try again if it doesn't work.

    Perfect for my PSK-31 Interface (Ham Radio)

    The Vantec USB to Serial adapter cable was the perfect solution for my ham radio problem. I have a PSK-31 interface that I made a few years ago that connects to a computers serial port (RS-232). After purchasing a new PC, I noticed it has no serial ports; everything is USB. Therefore I had no way of connecting my PSK-31 interface to the PC until I saw the Vantec cable here on the Wal-Mart site. Once connected to my desktop HP PC with Win7, it immediately searched for and found the Prolific driver it needed. This cable was the perfect solution for my PSK-31 Interface. If you use Digipan 2.0 make sure you use the comm port associated with the Prolific driver.

    The product works but, unfortunately it didn't allow me connect my PDA to my laptop. I am sure it is because of the vintage of my PDA not the fault of the USB/serial adapter. I was hoping it would solve my problem but it didn't.

    After I remembered to install the included software, it worked perfectly. I am using it with a TS600 smart board for my classroom. If it is plugged in when I am turning on my laptop, it recognizes the board automatically. If I have to plug in the usb adapter after the laptop is on, I just use my smartboard software to seach for a "new serial board" and it recognizes it right away. I never have any connectivity issues at all.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I'm using Windows 7 and I had no problems with this adapter. In fact I didn't use the CD to install the drivers. Just plug-and-play (I guess my computer is updated with all drivers). It needs LED activity for status then I rated 4 starts. I'm working with microcontrollers and my laptop doesn't have a RS232 port. This is a very good product for serial communication. Using teraterm as VT

    The product worked just fine, but the instructions and CD that came with it were wrong and worthless. Windows XP and 7 both install the USB drivers for this without doing anything. The enclosed CD says one must use it to install drivers, but there are none on the disk. Pretty stupid documentation! But the price was right!

    Just what I needed and at a great price. If you are running Windows 7 you will need to go to the Vantec website and download the drivers, but even that was really easy. (It comes with a CD with the drivers for XP and 2000). I used it to reprogram my Innovate wideband controller also. Worked great.

    I needed to hook up a Serial device to my Windows 7 computer, that has no Serial COM ports. I installed the drivers from the CD, plugged in this adapter, and there it was. A new Serial Port. It works great and the price was very reasonable. Thanks

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I used this adapter to interface my radip transceiver to my laptop. After I installed the included software, I only had to change which COM port for it to use and everything worked smoothly after that.
