[rescue] USB<->Serial Adapters for Windows Laptops to Sun boxes

Wasn't it on this list, and only a short time ago, several of you were
discussing which USB<->serial dongles you were using to connect to
various Sun boxes from Windows laptops?

...Apparently not, since I can't find such a conversation anywhere
I've looked...

In any case, I have been asked to recommend such a device, and have no
experience with those to be able to make such a recommendation.

Since we already have the cable solutions for laptops with 9-pin
connectors, a USB dongle that provides such a connection would be most

So, are there particular brands to either look for (or avoid), or are
these things commodity items and about all the same?
