I've used one on a Linux laptop, it "just worked" but the OS wasn't CentOS 7.

I need to connect an older APS UPS unit to a machine running CentOS 7. Unfortunately the UPS only has a serial port whereas the computer does not. I am aware that there are USB-serial adapters but that the hardware or the drivers might fall short of expectations.

Does anyone have positive experience with such an adapter? Or, conversely, would recommend avoid a particular adapter?
