  • This device was configured automatically by my Win7 computer. Great!

    BUT: The DB-9M should have two screws to firmly attach the plug to the serial device (radio reciever). Instead, I found two female nuts STAKED to the connector. Being STAKED, they cannot be un-screwed to allow the connector to mate with the reciever serial port. This device is a waste of good money. I was able to remove the nuts, but this also removed the "D" shaped frame from the connector. It was barely usable and will surely be rendered un-usable once removed from the reciever.

    I have used several USB-Serial adapters from SPARKFUN over the past several years, and was very happy with them. Not this time. I have never seen a cable with the attachment nuts STAKED to the frame. IMHO, this is a sign of cheaply made merchandise.


No public wish lists :(
