    As the title says...has anyone tried one under Bootcamp?
    I have an eeprom programmer which runs from the serial port and I thought of buying a converter to run it via a USB port on my MacBook Pro.

    I'm on a FIRST robotics team, and a member has a USB converter, and says it runs very slow under Boot Camp.

    Hope this helps

    The one I have works great. I use it to purchase some handheld radios. To be, it works better than an actual com port. LOL If you need the name of the 1 I use, let me know and ill look it up..

    I have a Keyspan US-19HS I use with my iBook, but I haven't tried it under Boot Camp on my iMac. They have WHQL Windows drivers for it, so I don't see why it wouldn't work at full speed.

    It wasn't cheap, but seems to work well.
