USB to Serial?

I'm looking at buying a new desktop, but none of them seem to be including serial ports these days. The one I'm looking at only has one empty PCI slot, and I'm going to fill it with a high-end audio card.

I've seen some USB-Serial adaptors. Has Amiga Explorer been tested with any? Do they generally work just as well?

Thanks.

Yeah USB to serial are no problem at all and will work just fine.
The only issue you'll have is via an USB to parallel which ONLY work with printers.

Be careful: the cheaper you will find can't be compatible with Windows Vista/7. Search for that if you need it.

Like i said the one i use is the cheapest i could find and have it running on windows 7, though I think i did have to do a bit of searching to get an appropriate driver.
