    Purchased for use in Ham Radio applications. The board installed easily and the drivers were automatically installed by Windows 10 Pro. This board has served me well for several months. I would have no reservations about recommending this product for any serial port requirement.

    Well it works good. I use it for a Celestron telescope. I also have a Davis weather station plugged into it. Worked with Windows 7 and 10. Drivers auto installed.

    Very nice to additional COM ports for a system with only one. I use the additional ports with my Hamradio equipment; radio, amp, etc.

    Communication ports working as expected after two years. Easy installation and no drivers required. I will recommend this buy anytime.

    Installed the serial port and it created an LPT3 that was unusable. Same problem as another user had (see other reviews). Hope this is not an XP issue and will return mine for another one. Hope this is just a bad one.

    Unfortunately, there are no Windows 10 (64) drivers for this adapter. I had made a faulty assumption. They do exist for many of the PCI-Express adapters that are similar in function.

    We had a little problem getting it to work in our old computer, but the tech support was excellent. We called them on a Saturday and the tech walked us through the installation and stayed with us until it worked. I can't say enough about the tech support.

    Plug-and-play on Ubuntu Linux. It Just Works (TM). I actually bought this for an operating systems design class to augment my Pentium I (don't laugh) PC with extra serial ports. However, the card grabbed a strange IO base address (0xA000) and I didn't have the patience to write my own drivers for...
