Rated 4 out of 5 by loggertech Solid no-nonsense serial ports
I use this 4-port device on a Win7/64bit desktop for testing and configuring dataloggers in a workshop/R&D environment and it's exactly what I needed. I was previously trying to use multiple USB-RS232 converters and occasionally having trouble with COM number auto-assignment and dropouts.
No problems with this card. The Brainbox driver's control panel allows you to easily select which COM numbers to allocate to each port, and they just stay allocated. Conveniently, mine are COM1/2/3/4.
My only gripe is that the supplied breakout cable is not long enough for me. It's 1 metre which probably suits many users, but I need extension cables to reach equipment spread around a workbench.
