I purchased this after looking at the USB FAQ for opensolaris. It worked right away and I was able to use kermit to connect to my old ultra 60. The cable is a little short, though.

I was expecting a /dev/tty type of device but it actually creates a /dev/term/0 and /dev/cua/0 .

This was the recommended USB to serial adapter for my LG TV, it works fine. I needed it for control through my home automation setup.
This is a cable/interface I always wanted as a service engineer - since notebooks are not fitted with a RS-232 port anymore during the latter part of last decade. I finally got one and was very happy with the build quality and functionality of this RS-232/DB9 - USB converter. While living in Australia - shipment was also very quick.
