Many of Deluo's devices (GPSes, etc) use the PL2303 too.  That's nice 
if I wanted an inexpensive GPS though.

I'm not the kind of person that wants to hack up something like 
that.  I needed a serial adapter for my Cisco routers, switches, and 
firewalls, as well as for my TNCs (D700 and the DR135TP).

As for Tiger Direct, I buy from them pretty often, but only things 
that are in stock and preferably not a deal logged on Techbargains, etc.


There's many people who have the same thing, however.
