Works well, cable short – USB 2.0 to CN36 Parallel Printer Adapter Cable (100CM) Reviews

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 computer is not sitting next to the printer, pick a longer cable.
Other:
Upon the first install in the same port as my previous cable, I had some trouble, as the printer was not detected. After I plugged it into a different USB port first, driver software automatically instlled and the printer was detected.
Bottomline:
I am happy, it is good value for money, although I would get one of the longer cables next time.
