Didn't work consistently

Bought this instead of an industrial brand from National Instruments, thought I could save a lot of money. Only one of three devices I tried to connect communicated properly. All 3 communicated fine on the native RS232 port and all 3 communicated fine using the National Instruments version of this style product. A shame, was hoping for better results.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback on our 8 port Serial card. We apologize for the issue you experienced, and we would like to help resolve it. This card really should work fine with any serial device on all 8 ports. We recommend making sure that all ports show up as installed in Device Manager, and if they do, performing a serial loopback test on all ports to ensure they are functioning correctly. Instructions for this can be found in our online FAQ, here: http://www.startech.com/faq/serial_loopback_test_rs232_windows#PEX8S952. Some serial devices do require specific chipsets to function correctly. If any of the devices you have tried require the chipset that was used in the National Instruments brand of card, this may be the reason why they do not work with our card, which uses a PLX/Oxford chip. That being said, if a serial loopback fails on any of the ports, the card may be faulty and we would be happy to replace it if necessary. We are always here to help with our lifetime technical support. If you require further assistance, please feel free to contact us any time and be sure to reference case number 303-236829. Thank You, Customer Support StarTech.com http://www.startech.com/techsupport
