Many of us are happy with the Prologix.  The USB version is $150.  That's 
more than I really want to spend but less than $300 and you don't have to 
maintain an old PC.

The USB version uses one of the popular USB-RS232 chips so there is no 
problem with drivers.  I haven't tried the Ethernet version.
