Why do you want to use Threading or a Backgroundworker for this approach ?
Let's assume updating the GUI component with an extra row takes 10 ms, but queueing a task takes 1 ms. Then, if I don't queue the task, the event handler will be blocked for 10 ms for each packet, but if I queue a task instead then my event handler will only block for 1 ms. Of course, with the latter approach my data will show up with a slight delay in the GUI component, but that's acceptable.

For example a ListView
I've never used a ListView. Would it be a better choice than RichTextBox and DataGridView, in your opinion?
Ralf Meier wrote:
But you should realize that each and every list has an End
That's fine, I don't have infinite RAM in my computer anyways, but for sure 65535 characters is too little.

If you want to write to an Excel-Sheet it isn't necessary to know something about VBA - this work could be done complete inside your Application.
But how do I know which row I should add the latest data to, without running a for-loop to find the first empty row? RichTextBox and DataGridBox have append methods that will figure out where the end is for you.

What problem do you have with a DataGridView ?
Today I have a logging window (that supports a single Com port) implemented as DataGridview and it seems to be lagging a lot, but I guess I must be doing something wrong. Also, I had to implement my own copy-to-clipboard function and I had some problems with it because every once in a while (e.g. during boot-up and power down) there would come strange characters from my device and if a null-character was present in the middle, then only half the text would appear in the clipboard, so I had to spend time making a workaround for that. With e.g. RichTextBox, I wouldn't have to do this.
