Customer Reviews

This is the *garbage* versionThis has a very similar name to the good version, but this is *not* the good version, the good version is:https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008U3OVHWGet *that* version, not this one. This one is twice the size, and is incompatible with many OSes.1No FreeBSD support, pay attention to UART -- it's non-standard/proprietary and undocumented!I've had to return the card.For the technically inclined or interested parties:No support for FreeBSD. I needed a specific targeted application which is best suited for running on FreeBSD. If you need FreeBSD support, make sure you check /usr/src/sys/dev/pub/pucdata.c or /usr/src/sys/dev/uart/uart_bus_pci.c for support. Make my mistake for forgetting to check the kernel for hardware support to your benefit.Card is properly identified under FreeBSD (you're able to enumerate the PCI bus and identify the card) but there is no driver to operate the 16C1050 UART. What is a 16C1050 UART anyways? I can't even find technical specifications for this chip. This means even if I wanted to modify the FreeBSD puc kernel driver, I couldn't because there are no published specifications for this UART to be found. This is not just this board but any board that was "compatible with 16C550" or similar verbiage you'll need to exercise caution. This and similar boards which are found on Amazon.com should be avoided at all costs because they will require specific vendor drivers which tend to be undocumented and loose support across operating system upgrades. Do yourself a favor and find yourself a native 16550A, 16650, 16750, or 16950 UART on board.Output from pciconf -lv:pcib3@pci0:2:0:0: class=0x060400 card=0x00000000 chip=0x10801b21 rev=0x04 hdr=0x01 vendor = 'ASMedia Technology Inc.' device = 'ASM1083/1085 PCIe to PCI Bridge' class = bridge subclass = PCI-PCInone1@pci0:3:0:0: class=0x070002 card=0x4d0214a1 chip=0x4d0214a1 rev=0xb0 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Systembase Co Ltd' class = simple comms subclass = UARTI ended up buying a SIIG 2-Port RS232 Serial PCIe with 16950 UART (JJ-E02111-S1) which has the Oxford OxPCIe952 chipset in it. There is listed driver support for it and is found in both the uart and puc drivers of FreeBSD's kernel. It has two native 16950 UARTs on board.You can see here the SIIG with the Oxford chipset does have support and I verified!:root@foobar:/usr/src/sys/dev/uart # grep -i OxPCIe952 *uart_bus_pci.c:{ 0x1415, 0xc120, 0xffff, 0, "Oxford Semiconductor OXPCIe952 PCIe 16950 UART"-and-root@foobar:/usr/src/sys/dev/puc # grep -i OxPCI *pucdata.c: "Oxford Semiconductor OXPCIe952 1S1P",pucdata.c: "Oxford Semiconductor OXPCIe952 UARTs",pucdata.c: "Oxford Semiconductor OXPCIe952 UARTs",pucdata.c: "Oxford Semiconductor OXPCIe952 UARTs (function 1)",pucdata.c: "Oxford Semiconductor OXPCIe954 UARTs",pucdata.c: "Oxford Semiconductor OXPCIe954 UARTs (function 1)",pucdata.c: "Oxford Semiconductor OXPCIe958 UARTs",pucdata.c: "Oxford Semiconductor OXPCIe958 UARTs (function 1)",That's all folks!1Flawless I use serial ports to control several ham radios. I switched computers from an ancient (OK, 2002) XP desktop that had a 4-port serial card to a new system running Windows 7. I was concerned about switching the OS and computer at the same time - I hoped everything would work. It did! The installation was problem-free and the serial card works great with both radios along with the software I use (which also upleveled). I was able to use the dual connector configuration, but it's nice that StarTech includes the lower profile brackets too.No complaints, it works very well and I plan on picking up a 2nd card to add in some more radios. 5Works at kernel level in LinuxLinux folks want to reconfigure the jumpers to win/dos configuration. I had an issue where only one character would transmit from Linux host to a remote. By changing the jumpers, it now works as expected. The Linux kernel has support for this device's chip set(oxpcie952). I built my system from source and I was having kernel panic issues. I installed this serial card to capture the kernel messages in a serial console. It was successful. This devices works at a kernel level.4Can be a little tricky sometimes but after initialized works great. These units were installed in our test stands from the manufacturer.One had went bad and we looked at options but decided to keep the same setup and order again.We sometimes on start up have to individually disconnect and reconnect the usb ports in windows to recognize certain devices.But other than that it does its job quite well. This issue only happens on a software or PC re-boot.Have never had issues during operation. 3Needed one on the flyI bought this for work because I couldn't find an extra one and I didn't have time to wait for them to order one. I already had the driver's installed from m the one I borrowed so I didn't have to do anything extra. Jut plug it in and attach the console and I was able to start configuring routers.5Startech actually works with WIN 8.1Initially purchased the Gearhead USB to serial converter from a local computer store, to use with my new Dell Inspiron 3000 PC running Windows 8.1. Big mistake! Should have checked reviews in Amazon first. The Gearhead unit came with a driver disk, and on the box it said it was Windows 8 compatible. Wrong. Driver loaded with a Windows alarm in Device Manager, about insufficient virtual memory. Anyway, could not make it work. Returned to store. Ordered the StarTech adaptor from Amazon, recommended by Amazon users, and known to work with Windows 8. Sure enough, when it arrived, plugged the USB end into my Dell and Windows discovered the driver automatically via Windows Update. Did not even need to load the driver from disk.. Worked perfectly, with my Dylos Laser Particle Counter, which only has a serial port. Now plotting particle counts on PC. Six foot cable with Startech adaptor is 6 feet long; important when monitoring counts in real time from the fairly large particle counter, and must set the laptop down somewhere nearby.5Updated LX200-ACF using Windows 10 flawlessly.Used to update LX200ACF 12", did so flawlessly while using Meade #507 serial cable and Startech ICUSB2321F one port USB to serial cable while using Windows 10. Updated with ASU and StarPatch. No problems listed here and no connection issues whatsoever. Was 100% plug and play.5A perfect tool for installers of equipment with serial console connectionsThis product has been a time saver. I install storage arrays for a living and these arrays have dual controllers that require a serial connection for initial setup. Being able to have a console session open to both controllers at the same time has saved me a lot of running back and forth to switch cable connections. This works flawlessly with Windows 10 Pro and has been field tested on Mac OS as well. A perfect tool for installers of equipment with serial console connections. It also works just fine with Cisco and Dell roll-over cables as well as those Compellent SC4020 proprietary serial cables.5cable and machine work fine but does not with the startech unit) Too bad ...I had issues with my computer that I thought may be causing the card not to work, I called support they were helpful in confirming the unit worked through a loop back test but could not help further (as expected).I resolved my issues on my PC and got my hardware to work on the com1 integrated Port but it would not work on any of the startech ports.I called support to explain that my onboard com1 works with my machine but their unit using the same port settings and cable does not, their advice was for me to contact my hardware vendor. (Even though my computer com1, cable and machine work fine but does not with the startech unit)Too bad I really wanted this to work to replace my siig 2 port usb to RS232 and my ugreen usb to rs232 (all of which work fine)1Works Well - Supports Uncommon (Legacy) Software (Amateur Radio) and Standard Legacy Applications (In Windows 7 mostly) Use legacy RS-232 equipement (external modem, various Amateur Radio programming hardware). Needed this hardware to continue to support these items. Works well. No issues encountered. It's been several years. Usage is sparse, but when called upon, it service me well still. Buy it. It works! 4Does the job perfectlyI'm an embedded systems programmer, so frequently I need multiple serial channels on a machine. This card does everything I need -- the 4-port spider cable with DB-9 male connectors attaches easily, the card installs under XP, Vista, or Win7 with ease, and I don't experience any dropped data. It's also worth noting that this card performs flawlessly under Linux. It has an Oxford Semi chipset which is auto-detected by recent releases of Ubuntu; you don't have to compile and install special drivers for it (unlike a different card I tried with a MOSChip controller, which we can only run in Windows). There's also a version of this card with a low-profile bracket, if you need that. And there's a power connector on the card, so if you have (for instance) a specialized point-of-sale system that accepts DC power over one of the handshake lines, you can attach a Molex PC power connector, move a couple of jumpers, and power the connected device.So, if you have a PCI Express slot and need 4 RS-232 ports, get this card, it's painless.5Helped resurrect an older scanner via a Virtual MachineI needed a serial port on my primary computer in order to use an old serial scanner. I hate to throw perfectly good equipment away just because it's no longer "supported" with more modern computers. I tried my USB-to-Serial cable that works for many of my other devices but it wouldn't work with the older software and drivers I needed for this scanner. This card solved my problem. It installed without an issue and was found by Windows 7 without a problem. I was then able to install the scanner software in a VM which could "see" the new com ports. The scanner was found on the correct com port and I'm able to use it again.5
