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. Came with: * low-profile PCI Express x1 card * driver CD-ROM * high-profile bracket adapter * instruction booklet * Part # PEX1P The box says that the item has a "2 Year Warranty".
Summary: Cusa sold me the card on the basis it would fit my desktop. It didn't. They gave me an RA but kept $2.46 of my money. It wasn't the shipping amount. It wasn't the tax. It wasn't 10% restock. They just imposed some fee of $2.46. Long story short, this card won't fit in PCI Express slots.
Just what was needed to get my old printer hooked up

Summary: I needed one of these to hook up my old Epson Actionlaser 1500 to my new computer. Of course most new computers don't come with a parallel port - this was an easy and cheap way to keep using my old reliable printer. I have used these at work as well, and the product works just fine. Usually Windows will find and download the driver automatically, but if for some reason the site is blocked by a web filter, this card also comes with a CD. .
Summary: I put the card in, installed the drivers and then it didn't do anything. Then I reset my computer... computer would not boot up again until the card was removed. Tried all sorts of remedies to try to resolve the problem, never worked. ALSO the card I was sent did not look like the one pictured. It had purple where the picture is black and also there was two notches in the connectors instead of the one pictured here.
