Summary: It only has one USB port which might be a problem if using with more than one printer, but I bought it to turn my WD Passport Pro hard drive into a cloud storage unit and there was no USB port on my cable router. It took only minutes to setup and my cloud storage works great!
Summary: The Hawking unit works great. Something the seller for to mention. Every PC using the server must install the Hawking print server software. You must also manually enter the IP address for you printer. You must also configure each PC with the software for the target printer. My wife and family will not even know how I did the magic. After proper configuration it is works. Everything works as advertised for the HP 6200 multifunction printer. MAGIC ! Thanks dad.
Summary: The Hawking HMPS1U Print Server is a very good buy. Very easy to connect multi computers for a print job. I connected a HP j4580 all in one with out any problem. I highly recommend the Hawking HMPS1U Print Server to everyone.
Summary: Works with Windows 7 and 8 on a wired and wireless computer and Windows 8 on a Wireless Netbook. I connected a Samsung CLP-300 and HP Inkjet at the same time by adding a USB Hub. Both Printers appear in Windows like they are plugged into whatever computer you are on. Hawks website has Windows 8 software if you need it. Don't over think it, that was my problem. Turns out you don't have to mess with any Network or Router settings or anything.
Summary: Plugged this in, connected to my network and followed the directions and works great. Have two machines, one Vista and one Windows 7 sharing my multi function Lexmark X5650 with no issues (yet). We love it!
Summary: I have an old but excellent HP Laser printer which I could not connect to with my old print server. I hesitatingly got the Hawking HMPS1U based on the reviews, but still doubting. It worked like a champ. I have computers with XP, Vista and a Win 7. The Hawking connected to each one of them with no problems. I am very pleased with my purchase and would reccommend this item.
Summary: This was used for a home network. I did not read all of its description. It cannot support Android or IOS. Otherwise this is a very good product. It worked very well for me, but I had to give it away because it does not support Android. If you want Android support, look elsewhere.
