Good card

Strengths of the product

Serial ports individually configurable to operate in either RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485 modes via stock drivers. Serial ports can be individually configured using HW jumpers to enable +5V, +12V, or disable DC power output on pin 9 of the DB9 connector. Works on Windows 8.1 64-bit. Low profile brackets PCI-Express

Weaknesses of the product

installation manual does not say that you must install the driver before adding the hardware. If you do otherwise you will get a blue screen. A newer driver is available on StarTech website.

Additional Comments

Good features, Works for me under Windows 8.1 (64-bit).

I'd order something somewhere else..

Strengths of the product

It has low profile brackets and full height brackets. It works when powered by 4pin molex.

Weaknesses of the product

If you don't have a 4 pin molex power connector the printer port on this card is useless. So, on top of spending the $ on this a power splitter is required to go from Sata to Sata/Molex .... It's a shame at this time MemX doesn't stock any other low profile parallel Cards. The lava ones work quite well.

Works for me

Strengths of the product

Works out of the box on Linux. Modern PCIE makes it somewhat future-proof. 16550 UART is very very well known.

Weaknesses of the product

Seems really really expensive to me.

Additional Comments

I got this card for a fairly commercial application and I was pleased that it worked out of the box on Ubuntu Linux 12.04. I expect it'll work with any OS, as the UART is super standard. The price just seems really really steep to me, hence the 4/5 and not 5/5.
