MH871 USB or Serial ?

Recommended Posts

I picked up a MH871 and I want to hook it up to my Dell which I already have a roland plotter connected to via Serial Port,   Now I would like to hook up my MH871 to this same computer,  I was thinking of running the MH871 via USB but have read of issues of the USB not being reliable.  

 

 

So my question is do I try the USB or can I buy a Switch box to switch between the two plotters via Serial cable?

add a serial card to the dell for a second serial port - will be much better as the mh has a pretty flaky usb to serial chipset internally
