I've used a number of USB to serial adapters with my Mac over the years. Each couple of OSX updates seems to break support and require new software and/or drivers. This unit installed easily and worked right away whereas many other ones I have failed to work under the current OS (Yosemite 10.10.2).

Product in the box not the same as description.

Cable is only 1.5ft long instead of 5 ft.

Will only work on Windows PC - not Linux and Mac as description says.

Many electric utility SCADA, relays and test equipment still use serial connections and of course the newer PCs do no have serial ports. This solves the problem with ease.

Comments about Tripp Lite Usb 1.1/firewire serial adapter, 17"":

The Tripp Lite USB-RS232 Adapter was simple to set up and works perfectly. I am using the adapter to connect serial Amateur Radio equipment to my Windows 7 computer for the purpose of memory programing and Firm-Ware updates. The adapter provides an easy to use and effective tool allowing me to connect my older serial equipment to my Windows 7 computer's USB port.
