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

    Pros:
    I've bought it to programming AVR microcontrollers. I've tried it under linux (ubuntu x64), using "5-wired" easy-to-make homemade AVR-programmer with buffer 74hc244n. Everything works great! I've programmed it using Ponyprog2000 program and avrdud...
    Cons:
    I've used AVR Atmega-16

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

    Pros:
    Really simple to install, just shutdown your computer, plug in the card and start your computer. Drivers are automatically installed on just about all operating systems (Windows XP, Vista, 7, Linux). Really usefull when you are trying to program a ARM devel...
    Cons:
    None really, it just works.

    Great!

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

    Pros:
    It just works! I have tested it with a lcd character display and works as expected. That means that is a real port and not just for printers like the usb-parallel converters.
    Cons:
    No cons really, the price could be a little better but still it worths it if you need it.

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

    Pros:
    Very good card, it is not a fake parallel port, it is an actual parallel port. It works as it is supposed to. I bought it to get some digital outputs out from my computer, and so I did, and it works really good. It is easy to install the card and the driver.
    Cons:
    The CD that came with it did not work, the driver is not in it or at least I was not able to find it, but here in some other re...

    Works as it's supposed to

    posted by Fossalta on 02/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Adds a standard parallel port to a PC Works better than a USB/Parallel convertor because it actually shows as a parallel port and not a USB printing device. This means that it also works for scanner devices! Very cheap compared to other manufacturers. Easy ...
    Cons:
    Doesn't use legacy I/O addresses. Some programs might have problems with that. But if you can configure the I/O address manuall...

    Good bang for the buck

    posted by DrKlahn on 02/05/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These are inexpensive, solid cards that worked on every system (W98 and XP) I installed them in. The Windows XP Control Panel driver configuration even allows you to set interrupt usage -- none, avoid if possible, or use freely.
    Cons:
    Plug-and-pray sees the card as a PCI Simple Communication Controller, not a printer port, so you do need to install the driver ...
