Flawless with WIndows 7 -64  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
After getting a new laptop that does not have serial ports anymore, I had to research this after finding that many of these style adapters did not work with Windows Vista and Windows 7 for varying reasons.

This one works with both, and I verified it. I use mine with Windows 7 -64, Yaesu FT-950, N1MM logger, and Ham Radio Deluxe 5.0. All without any issues. You cannot beat the $18 price ($25 including shipping).

You MUST install the drivers prior to connecting the adapter for the first time.

I also twice updated my FT-950 firmware with this adapter, withou incident.
