Do you have to worry about customs? Also do not worry about the specs and the speed, everything is pretty much equal. When I tried the dealexterme one, it worked, I can not say anything about how well they work or the quality as I only tested them for a short time to make sure they could be used as backups. I am sure that some of FTA users could be interested in this piece. I ordered one of the DealExtreme adapters. There was a long thread about this here on RFD a few weeks ago http: I’ve ordered from them a few times R4 just arrived about 2 weeks ago and never paid duties or taxes.

I have had great success with prolific based converters, in North America the cheapest converters usually carry the polific chip, more expensive ones in north america tend to use either prolific or FTDI.
I’ve ordered from them a few times R4 just arrived about 2 weeks ago and never paid duties or taxes. Building a usb-serial converter is not rocket science so the chances are good that even the cheapest converters regardless of chip would work great.

From my experiences it takes about 2 weeks to ship but their customer service seems very good. I bought something different store from the states a long while ago and the price savings was killed by customs costs.
Most USB cables use either the prolific or the FTDI chips, I was unable to recognize either company when running the installer so they probably use a different chip. Drivers included with a product, but ” Rotate image Save Cancel.
