There are some of us that have less than wonderful results with dxtreme and therefore no longer consider them an option... no matter the price.  Heck,  for me...  even free would not bring me back as a customer to dx.

If you look carefully, you'll see they almost all have different pinouts on the 6-pin
headers, and none are consistent with the adafruit FTDI Friend, if that matters.

IOW, headers on pcbs that currently accept FTDI Friends, or the std FTDI Cables
[ie, the first original devices], may not accept those not-quite-a-proper-clone
boards.

How? A CP2102 is a CP2102 and to the best of my knowledge supports the RS232
TTL Standard 0 - 5V... What could be different?
Are you trying to say that we will blow up our boards if we don't use the Official..

How is any of this relevant? If I build a board I make provisions for jumpers only
it is my take that most do as that is what I see in 90+ % of all the pictures presented
here and it is useful to me to NOT be tied to a pinout... I make my own.
When and where I need them.

Interesting statement of delivery time..

Delivery:   
Typically ships in 7 - 10 business days


I don't quite know how to read that but regardless of the price I'd not order there...
If that kind of error is in front.. What's going on inside?
