- A cable adapter I wouldn't be without- July 21, 2011
This product was purchased to help my husband download his topographic maps onto his gps. With our desktop computer going down, all we had left was our laptop without a port to support his gps. When my son told me the type of adapter I needed, I was able to search the web and find this DB9 adapter. It was able to be purchased in 2 lengths but the shorter cable worked great with our laptop. My husband was able to once again downloaded his maps and the talk of buying a bigger and better gps was over, saving us hundred of dollars. The cable and adapter was just what was needed to help use his prior gadgets without having to buy new.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent product- May 4, 2009
I needed this adapter to connect a (home automation device) CM11A X10 serial interface to my Vista machine which had no serial ports. This works flawlessly and I felt was purcased for a fair price. The only negative comment I can make is that it did not come with software drivers. My Vista Home Premium machine was able to find the driver for me online as part of the "found new hardware process, however I feel that someone other than a "power user" may have not been successful at that point and would have needed support. All in all a great product however and I continue to be happy to do business with this company.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Did Not Work- May 24, 2018
I purchased this UART converter cable to connect to two new HP 1950 12XGT switches via their console ports. It will not connect from my laptop to either of them, connecting this adapter cable to the serial to RJ45 console cable that came with the devices. I cannot say that the adapter cable is bad, because it might just be an HP serial cable pinning issue, so I will not return it. Hopefully that is the case, because if I knew the cable was bad for sure, I would return it. Since serial connections are SO obsolete, I have nothing to test this cable with, so I am stuck I guess.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
