USB / Serial adapters
Belkin is also cursed by many
folks because their USB adapters just DON'T WORK
WELL if at all for them. Over
many months and many list groups, I've heard the
same thing every time: The
only two brands you can be sure of, are IBM and
Keyspan USB/Serial adapters.
They are also the only two that have been tested
and awarded logo
certification by MS. This means, after extensive testing, they
are DOCUMENTED to have worked
and worked correctly.
Everything else works
"sometimes" in "some situations" for "some folks" with
"some equipment". For emcomm
gear, who wants to rely on that, when there's
documented stuff available
for the same price, or damn close to it?
