Best is not often the cheapest. :)
It is well known that USB to serial adapters that use the FTDI chipset
are, by far, the most reliable and troublefree. Be careful though --
it's easy to buy counterfeit products on the internet. Elecraft sells a
known good adapter cable that uses the FTDI chipset. Not the cheapest.
Don't buy an older one of their units used -- they used a different
chipset, and it had problems. They changed a number of years ago.
Edgeport is a known good mfr of USB to serial adapters.
