  • Summary: I put this card in a Dell desktop system running Windows 7 (64-bit). Our printer, an HP Laserjet 4050 (I know!) works with no problems. The card came with a CD-ROM but I did not bother to even look at it. Rather, I downloaded the driver from the StarTech site.

Could not Use in Intended Application

28 December 2013
  • Summary: I do not require 2 way parallel functionality so I don't know how well that works. The driver download zip includes a PDF with procedures to create a Linux device for it too. http://www.startech.com/Cards-Adapters/Parallel/1-Port-EPPECP-Parallel-PCI-Card~PCI1PECP I have not tried it with Linux yet.
  • Pros: Simple product, where the expectation is that it just works, and it does. I have installed this card in 2 different systems, and used it under Vista and Windows 7 I connect an old HP laser jet to it.
  • Cons: none

Arthur F., Newegg

  • Pros: Installed as LPT1 and LPT3 and works on LPT3 only - works well
  • Cons: Doesn't recognize LPT1 Port
