Thanks for the reply, Luc.

I'm OK with all of the points you posted - It's a fairly simple data logger, so wonky multiple events firing and millisecond timing isn't important (75-100ms was still occasionally creating a second file for the last dozen or two characters, so I just bumped it up to .75s) and I'm manipulating the UI by display code in another class from within the thread.

The artificial latency of the first suggestion doesn't bother me, but I don't think that will work. Although all of the data from a single burst would arrive in X ms, occasionally two data bursts may come close together, so a static wait time could feasibly end too early.

I need to figure out a way to to capture everything from the initial DataReceived event until X ms after the line goes silent. I had a ReadTimeout set on the port, but it didn't behave the way I was expecting with ReadExisting (that is, it didn't keep trying to read until hitting the time limit). I'll look into the rest of your second suggestion. Thanks again.
