    Cable did the job!

    Pros: - Just what you need to make a printer SERIAL to USB connection. Didn't need to use the provided driver CD that came with the cable. Good quality!

    Cons: Non

    The USB to Serial adapter cable was just what I was looking for - and it worked flawlessly. In short, I had an older SERIAL printer and new PC with NO legacy COM port. Not wanting to upgrade to a new printer, this cable was my last resort. I shut down the PC, connected the cable between the printer and the available PC USB port and booted up. The PC, running Windows 7 did the rest - located the required drivers, etc, and the printer came on line within minutes. Thanks MONOPRICE!

    Doesn't work with Windows 8.1 64 bit

    Pros: Designed Well

    Cons: Drivers need to be updated to work with current OS's or documentation provided on how to make it work.

    Plugged it in not problem, but do not believe that it works as I cannot get it to print to parallel printer I have hooked to it. Since there is no documentation on how to make it work, don't bother if you have Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, 64 bit version.
