    This item may be useful on Windows but is most likely useless (or requires a few hacks to get it work) on most Linux distributions, at least currently. Bought it so that I could use an old Laserjet printer on Linux Mint 17. That proved to be too complicated so bought a parallel port flat cable ok... Read more

    Pros: Very useful cable. I connected my old dot-matrix printer to laptop USB port (most laptops do not have Printer port). Cons: You never van replace your Black and white printer for a color one because you Old printers (only has printer port) can be use via USB port of the computer. The printer... Read more

    Robust and resistant encasing. Won't fall apart or disassemble, even if you want to, because it is all fused one piece. Good for using some old printers, but not valid for all devices using Parallel Ports as interface (see cons). The fact that it has the two kind of connector is a pro. No need on... Read more

    It works. (Well--I just used a side of the cable so I can't confirm whether both sides are working) No extra software is needed. Cheap. The wire is stout enough so my cat would not be able to tear it apart. The wire is way too short. (Approximately 1 meter) I have an old HP LaserJet 6P printer. I... Read more

    Great cable , with this cable you can use older printers with your laptop, since most laptops do not have Printer ports anymore USB is required. You never van replace your Black and white printer for a color one because you can connect it even years after you bought it. Why did i use a old pc ( a... Read more

    Windows-7 (64 bit) and HPLJ-1100 immediately found each other! It took 15 minutes to get the printer started printing. My printer has non-standard connector (mini). So I do not fit the adapter USB-CN36. I need an adapter type USB-DM25F, so I can use my existing cable from the printer. And it is a... Read more

    - very competitive price compared to adapters sold in my country - no need to install any drivers, works plug and play, just wait 2-5 minutes for the drivers to autodownload - durable packaging - build quality of the adapter is amazing - none, everything works as expected All printers that I in I...

    Seems to have firm structure so should be durable product. About one meter cable. If I could get this to work, price is very low. Computer recognises adapter as "USB-printer adapter" and installs the driver for it but my printer doesn’t do anything. I don't know how to change port from... Read more

    Good Price. Better than others that I'd test before. Works fine for all printers I've tried, including a EPSON LX 810, that didn't work fine with another adapter. None I could expect. This adapter is really great and has a good price! No drivers needed. Just the printer ones. With a similar I'd a... Read more
