Re: Serial <-> USB adapter



Thanks to all for the suggestions on Serial <-> USB adapters - I bought an
IOGEAR GUC232A locally for $29.99.  Searching the web I found about two
dozen different brands/models which ranged in price from $18 - $60 plus
shipping - decided on the local unit in case I needed to return it.

So far the IOGEAR unit has worked flawlessly, but was a PITA to setup until
I finally discovered the serial device I was testing needed "hardware
handshaking".

Anyone bought an inexpensive USB<->Serial adapter cable lately, that they
would recommend.

I need to test one with a new serial based tracking/tuning system that is
soon to be released.
