Are they clearly labelled as such? Any currently-for-sale brands
you can recommend? (its not always easy to find chipset info).
Also, how many ports do the devices have? With two serial cables per
machine, its pretty easy to get to a point where a Cyclades (or
Rocketport, drivers, sigh) starts to win on cabling count.
