Pros: Works with more devices than advertised. I bought this to act as a print server for a Brother HL-2140. D-Link's website only listed the Brother HL-2040 in their compatibility list so I was a bit wary of unboxing this, but I decided to try it and wasn't disappointed. Configuring new computers to u...
Cons: Setup may be intimidating for those who are not comfortable with setting up networks.
Summary: In a two story house with all the good printers on the other story, this is 50 bucks well spent. With the exception noted above, otherwise flawless integration with a DIR-655 and g/n devices.
Pros: Great print server. Once I figured the install out, everything works flawlessly. Adding a printer is very easy in Windows 7, particularly if you go through the print server's own setting page per the manual. DON'T try to set it up through Windows itself; didn't work for me.
Cons: I don't know if it was a Vista error, or just unique to my friend's computer, but the print spool kept giving error messages when I tried to install the network printer. I was about to reinstall Vistas completely (or upgrade to Windows 7) when i came across a print spool help fix from Microsoft h...
Pros: easy to setup and configure. nice small size.
Cons: Some printers are called Host-based Printers (a.k.a. GDI printers). HP LJ 1020 is an example. This print server will not work with a GDI printer. There are some print servers on the market that claim to work with GDI printers. Would have been nice to know this limitation up front. Googled for 3 h...
Pros: Does what it is supposed to. Too bad scanning is not supported on all machines but I scan rarely. This is a great investment for a printer without built-in networking. The convenience is well worth the price.
Summary: You can either mount it or stand it up vertically. That's a nice feature so that you can mount it on the side of a desk where it wont be seen.
Pros: This print server is great! The setup was very easy, and it found both of my printers (Brother laser and even an HP Photoprinter)! I haven't tried to print to the photoprinter, but the print server found it! I made sure it had the latest firmware, and then had to download the drivers from the pri...
Summary: I can't comment on the wireless end since mine is hardwired. Works great with my WinXP Home, Pro, and Win7 Pro 64-bit PC's. Everyone can print fine. With my Epson R1900, the status monitor is useless (but that's to be expected with a print server and not a con, just a fact).
Pros: Quick and easy setup, nice features for the price.
Summary: Only hiccup seems to be the setup process not always seeing that a driver had been installed previously on the pc. Also, if I point the setup to a local folder containing the proper driver, (I had copied over earlier) It doesn't actually find the driver..
Pros: 2 usb ports supporting 2 devices Web interface is rather straight forward
