    Helped me a lot

    posted by leobmr on 03/02/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Can you use older devices with parallel input devices in current use with USB input.
    Cons:
    The problem is that the cable is short. Therefore the devices must be close. Could be a little bigger so would make better use ...

    Works perfectly - Average

    posted by akonzen on 11/17/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Works perfectly on my WiFi router N600-HD with TomatoUSB. The cable is a good length, neither too short nor too long. Everything worked as expected without in some exotic setting or installation manual, which is quite common in the case of routers. It was ...
    Cons:
    It is not USB 2.0, but 1.1, the announcement induces think that is USB 2.0. What compelled me to configure the router to load t...

    Just what I needed

    posted by gocho on 08/08/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Works as advertized, I connected my laser printer to the USB port of my Linksys E3000 router, no drivers needed. Now I am sharing the printer without the need of having a PC with parallel port.
    Cons:
    Non what so ever.

    posted by psamuel on 11/30/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Funciona perfectamente bien. Tengo Windows 7 Ultimate y una Impresora Epson Stylus Color 6. La P.C. no tiene puerto paralelo. Esta tarjeta que se conecta por un lado al puerto USB de la Computadora y por otro lado al puerto Paralelo de la Impresora ha permi...

    Works well in Linux

    posted by Hyvatti on 11/12/2011 Certified Owner

    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 print...

    It works

    posted by rofar on 06/30/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    On Windows 7 it works without any problem. It's only connect it and Windows 7 detect it and start to search a printer. When Windows detects the printer ask you for drivers. After installs it the printer works without problem. En Windows 7 funciona sin ning&...
    Cons:
    In GNU/Linux I'm having some problems to make it work. The cable is detected and the printer connected to it too, but if I prin...

    Works well, cable short

    posted by digi1 on 09/09/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    The cable works well, also in connection with the AVM Fritz!Box (Linux based). Compared to a different brand (it felt cheaper) it seems to handle the USB sleep state well.
    Cons:
    The cable length is probably correct (100 cm), but in direct comparison to my old cable (180cm) it feels rather short. If your...

    Works like a charm

    posted by Snapster on 04/28/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Just plug it in and you are set, no need for special drivers or any hassle (Tried with Win XP). Materials seem to be solid and build quality is very good.
    Cons:
    The cable is a bit short - nothing a USB extender can't fix :) The price could be a tiny bit cheaper.
