This USB to serial cable uses an FTDI chipset! Why is FTDI recommended by software developers? Because it's easy to setup and just works.
Microsoft WHQL certified drivers are already included in your Windows 7 or newer operating system and are updated with Windows Update (No driver CD included with cable). Plug and play! Works with 32 and 64bit OS as well as Mac, Linux, and others. Latest drivers can also be found HERE.
Molded connectors on both ends. RX TX activity LED's in the USB molding.
You can find less expensive cables, but you get what you pay for.
Works great with Chirp and Kenwood's MCP-2A programming software (No software included).
