        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.

                    Had an old HP Laserjet printer. Figured it wouldn't work with the new computer. I was wrong. plugged in the adapter, Windows 7 automatically found the correct driver and the printer works fine.

                    Product technically not usable. Must protest that returning took 3 trips to the store (by phone no solution) and waiting confirmation of credit. It is close to a month.Apparently paper work at Radio Shak did not allow for processing. Suggest review the processing & credit of returns. Dr. Schwarz

                      The adapter worked greater. Connected 25pin to USB to use HP all-in-one printer with new desktop. Turns out the printer is not compatible with 64 bit processor, my bad. Will keep adapter for future use.

                      This product failed to work with our HP 8100 Printer.

                      Support tried to find a work around however it just does not work.

                      We are upset that we must pay more for the Shipping to return the item compared to the original purchase price. This has resulted in us just wasting our money and time.

IT HAS SCREW IN CONNECTIONS, SAME AS THE PRINTER. THOUGH THE CONNECTION COULD SLIDE INTO UNIT. SCREW BOLTS BLOCKED THE ENTRY.
