The U209-000-R USB-to-Serial Adapter Cable allows you to connect a 9-pin RS-232 serial device to a computer or laptop with a USB Type-A port. It works with modems, digital cameras, PDAs, ISDN terminals and other devices with a serial port. The U209-000-R supports data transfer speeds up to 230 Kbps - twice as fast as a built-in serial port. No external power is required, and the compact 1.52 m (5-ft.) cable tucks away conveniently in your backpack or laptop bag for easy traveling. Doubled-shielded design with gold-plated contacts, tinned copper braid and aluminum Mylar foil shield eliminates crosstalk and reduces EMI/RFI interference. Compatible with Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista, 7, Server 2008, 8, 8.1, Server 2012, and 10; Mac OS X 10.6 through 10.10; and Linux Redhat 7.3, 8.0 and 9.0. Also works with Android tablets and smartphones with the addition of a USB Host Mode (OTG) cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with 8Works ok with older OS, but causes BSOD on Windows 8. Uses a cheap knockoff chipset that isn't completely compatible with its own drivers. Use at your own risk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality of constructionThis adapter cable definitely exceeded my expectations where quality of construction is concerned.In all other respects, it was just what I needed and wanted.It would've been ideal if I could've found a DB9F version of the same cable, but that's my only possible quibble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have to unplug and replugThis converter needs to be removed from the USB port and replaced into the port sometimes for the PC to fully recognize it. For the price, it is OK.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very smooth and easy installationI'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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from USB to Serial Adapter Cable (USB-A to DB9 M/M) 5-ft.Our organization uses amateur radio for redundant communications. Part of those communications utilize RMS Express. In order to connect our laptops to the radios we now only use the Tripp-Lite U209-000-R. The drivers load quickly and we don't have to worry about making sure that we have the same cable with the exact same radio. We have tried a number of other connectors over the years, but none deliver the consistency and reliability of the Tripp-Lite. When an emergency strikes, it is good to know that we can still communicate no matter what happens. Thanks, Tripp-Lite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great!I've had other USB/Serial adapters that would pick a different COM port every time you plugged it in. This one is the same every time. I've had no issue programming RFID readers and RFID tags using this adapter, or communicating with devices at work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as it should once correct drivers are installedThis is just a typical USB-Serial adapter that works great for those old Serial devices or as a console cable connectionIt does include the newer generation Prolific 2303HXD chip.If you're using this on Windows 8 or 8.1 download the drivers from the Prolific website and manually install them. The drivers that Windows installs cause crashes when using Putty. And the drivers on Tripp-lites' site didn't work at all.
