Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Only Cable That Would Work We tried several different cables from different vendors and for some reason this was the only cable that provided us continual connectivity to our radio modems and Computer Aided Dispatch software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A cable adapter I wouldn't be without This product was purchased to help my husband download his topographic maps onto his gps. With our desktop computer going down, all we had left was our laptop without a port to support his gps. When my son told me the type of adapter I needed, I was able to search the web and find this DB9 adapter. It was able to be purchased in 2 lengths but the shorter cable worked great with our laptop. My husband was able to once again downloaded his maps and the talk of buying a bigger and better gps was over, saving us hundred of dollars. The cable and adapter was just what was needed to help use his prior gadgets without having to buy new.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product I needed this adapter to connect a (home automation device) CM11A X10 serial interface to my Vista machine which had no serial ports. This works flawlessly and I felt was purcased for a fair price. The only negative comment I can make is that it did not come with software drivers. My Vista Home Premium machine was able to find the driver for me online as part of the "found new hardware process, however I feel that someone other than a "power user" may have not been successful at that point and would have needed support. All in all a great product however and I continue to be happy to do business with this company.

I want to add a second monitor, to my computer. My problem is two-fold. 1)-I only have 1 port on my computer 2) 2 people that know computers, recommended, that I get an adapter from USB To VGA. I found what appears to be the answer with this Adapter. I have a 32 bit system. Is this the correct one?

No. This is a USB to serial adapter so it will only send data not video. You would need a product like our USB to VGA adapter (#30545).
