Watch out for this driver!
Authored by: _merlin on Jan 10, '06 06:37:21AM

The Prolific USB-serial driver is very poor quality. It consumes way too many clock cycles when heavy transfers are in progress, and it will cause a kernel panic if software attempts to select an unsupported baud rate.

I had many problems with the drivers that shipped with the adapter, but I haven't had any problems with these drivers.
