Very smooth and easy installation

Comments about Tripp Lite USB to Serial Adapter Cable (USB-A to DB9 M/M) 5-ft.:

I'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).

Comments about Tripp Lite USB to Serial Adapter Cable (USB-A to DB9 M/M) 5-ft.:

Many electric utility SCADA, relays and test equipment still use serial connections and of course the newer PCs do no have serial ports. This solves the problem with ease.

Comments about Tripp Lite USB to Serial Adapter Cable (USB-A to DB9 M/M) 5-ft.:

Customers of the company I work for have numerous legacy devices in the field that have had to convert from RS232 to USB. This is the only converter we support. No other comes close to the trouble free installation/operation of this device.
