Gerber Scientific Serial card

I have a Gerber Scientific Serial card (two ports) that has gone bad and prevents my Apple //e Platinum from booting. I see there is one for sale on Ebay. Does anyone recommend the Super Serial over any others?

Cards based on the 6551 like

Cards based on the 6551 like the Super Serial card and clones will generally perform better than those based on the 6850 like the Apple Com card or based on bit banging like the original Apple Serial Card.  The Super Serial Card is probably about the most widely supported card by software also.  There were a few cards based on newer Intel or Zilog chips like the Z8530, but they are fairly rare and not as well supported.
