  • Works well in Linux

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Worked right out of the box without any fiddling with drivers with Fedora Linux. The short 85 cm long cable good when you are using a printer occasionally with a laptop and it does not take too much storage space, as a longer roll of cable would.

    Cons:

    Cable is only 85 cm long, so it is shorter than 1 m specification and quite short for any fixed installation. Usually the printer is not so close to the computer. But an extension cable will fix that. The 3 m USB extension cable 34023 works well with this adapter.

    OtherThoughts:

    Nice that there is a product with this price so that I can use an older printer with centronics connectors and new laptops and desktops that do not have the parallel port any more.

    Bottomline:

    Get this if you need USB to centronics printer connection.
