            I was very impressed with the usb parellel printer cable how fast it connected to my computer....I connected it to a laptop and it spun a few times and found the drivers....I was so happy because my printer is a deskjet I got around 1999....very old and I figured it may of not worked ...but it did.

              Connected easily. Worked for 2 weeks then just quit. Too much money for only 2 weeks worth of printing. Paid for next day shipping and didn't get that either. Never again.

                  This adapter was immediately recognized by Windows 7. Had no issues with drivers or set up. Was truly a "plug-and-play" experience. The printer that I thought we would have to replace due to compatibility issues is working great now.

                    I used this cable with a laptop and an HP Laserjet 5. An old model I know but it is very reliable and gives extremely good prints. I did not have a parallel interface but when I plugged the cable into the USB port and installed the printer it worked right out of the package.

                      I ordered this for an HP 4050 printer that I just couldn't get to work with the parellel cable to a Windows 7 desktop computer. Hooked it up, it found and installed then drivers for the cable then for the printer. The printer worked perfectly.

                      The only problem I had was that I ordered this to be shipped to the store. It took over two weeks for it to be delivered!!!!

                        I had the help of the salesperson ordering this item, but I didn't have the right specs on the very old printer, so I didn't order the right equipment. Also I am having trouble finding a compatible piece that will fit this printer.

                            This allowed using a small Pentax Pocket Jet II thermal printer with a new Dell LT.

                            Installation of the adapter consisted of plugging it in under the Windows XP OS. Very pleased with the plug and play ease of the unit and ease of operation.
