Prolific PL-2303 and Chinese  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I bought the Chinese equivalent of this cable for 6 bucks--shipping included. I did have some issues at first, but found that I had to fix the baud rate to 9600 bps.

This has the Prolific PL-2303 chipset, as others have been discusted about. I use it to interface an Icom 718 to my cheapy eMachine laptop.

Learn to tinker with this stuff and you can save a lot of money. The Icom CT-17 is $149 and REQUIRES an RS-232C port.

Great product. Works with Windows 7 64bit  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
USB CT-17 replacement for ICOM works great with WIndows 7 64bit or any version for that matter. It is based on the FTDI Chipset instead of Prolific which had caused problems with my IC-7700. This cable works like a dream. No glitches and instantly installed. Joe is a pleasure to deal with and communication was great. I got the product the next day!
