Hyperterminal had a strange bug where if you typed the same character three times in a row, the third byte would not be transmitted. It only showed up if you had a corrupted saved configuration file, so it was a bear to find the issue.

And Hyperterminal isn't very good at handling unprintable hex data.

So I use RealTerm. Its GUI is all hacked together and its documentation can be sparse, but I'm confident that when I send and receive hex bytes that I'm getting what I expect.
