I have had very good results with the Sabrent brand.  Be sure you buy the FTDI chips as Sabrent makes both.  I buy mine from Amazon.

I’ve been using a Keyspan USA-19HS for years in my station. It does a great job, has been totally reliable with absolutely no problems.

It’s now a TrippLite product, available now from Amazon for $23.95


Hope this helps.
