SerialPort does enumerate all serial ports as it should, there is no problem, except it does not know about the underlying hardware, so for instance you can't differentiate motherboard vs USB ports.
Then it was a performance issue, I remember I couldn't use this class for a reason. I also refresh the list on the fly each time a USB-cable is connected/disconnected so if I remember correctly it was annoying.

I trust USB is called USB in all languages that use latin character sets, so you could use String.Contains on the friendlyname.
In my case it's not enough to find anything that contains "USB", I also need to categorize the cable/device and distinguish "USB Serial Device" from "USB Serial Port", my C# application supports products that show up as either one of these.

I have my own class enumerating all serial ports, its underlying technology is somewhat similar to the class you referred; here it is, use at your leisure. It returns a list of struct ComInfo which holds the friendlyname as well as the location (for USB serial ports this is a concatenation of port numbers, pointing to the USB port actually used).
It has a lot of similarities with the code I'm already using (I slightly modified this code: Svetlin Nakov – Official Web Site and Blog » Enumerate All COM Ports and Find Their Name and Description in C#[^] ). Are you saying your code will always return a description string in English, even if the operating system is non-English or what would I gain be switching to your code?
