StarTech.com 2-Port PCI Serial Adapter Card with 16550 UART is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly We use these cards for all our PCs that connect to scientific instruments (Agilent etc).No problems getting the drivers installed or the instruments to communicate.Solid cards that just work. Can't recommend them enough.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Suggestion for documentation An arrow showing where pin 1 is for the parallel cable would've been helpful. The stock photo provided on Amazon, CDW, and shown on the box contradicts what is show on the front of the manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy Serial Port Card For someone who needs an extra serial port or two on your PC, these are very handy. They go into a Windows 7 Pro PC without a hassle, and could even be added to a Small Form Factor box. (I did not need that, so I can't get detailed on that setup.)We use four-wire phone cabling for a machine monitoring system, and those transmissions work fine with the StarTech card (plus adapters, sold separately). We've bought two now over the last two years, and they install easily and work steadily.
