Never worked right

Steven H., Newegg
17 June 2009
  • Summary: I thought about buying another print server from another vendor, but I guess it is time to buy a $150 Laser printer with built-in networking capabilities.
  • Pros: Support was decent in sending replacement
  • Cons: Unfortunately, first one only worked sporatically on an HP4. Replacement unit didn't work at all.

It does what it says.

Alex G., Newegg
9 November 2007
  • Pros: I have two of these now and they are both working fine. Much cheaper than replacing a perfectly good printer with a new one or buying an HP JetDirect.
  • Cons: None.

Be Careful with DHCP

Anonymous, Newegg
1 November 2005
  • Summary: I purchased 18 of these from newegg and installed in a small corp environment. The seem to work fine, although my He**** Pac**** LJ4000 didn't work with them. Maybe I missed something. Be careful, the DHCP server is enabled by default.

26 August 2005
  • Summary: I bought this thing yesterday and It was working great until I decided to upgrade the firmware. Now the configuration wizard won't recognize the device and I can't reach the web configuration page either. Before the upgrade it was working great, it does exacly what it says it will do.
  • Pros: The wizard makes this product very easy to configure. Works like a charm.
  • Cons: Firmware on their site disables the device. Tech support number was busy when I called.

WARNING--new version is too big

Martha L., Newegg
12 August 2005
  • Summary: The new version of the HPS1P is bigger than the original one, and it DOES NOT FIT in many Laserjet printers--like the Laserjet 2300. What an incredibly boneheaded move by Hawking! Opt for the Nxxxxr PS101 instead.

HAWKING HPS1P

Paul S., Newegg
13 July 2005
  • Summary: I purchased this to replase a Netgear PS110 that was fried by a nearby lightning strike. Installation and configuration was a snap and worked effortlessly from my Windows and Linux desktops. For Linux, nothing needs to be installed.

Hawking Server

Anonymous, Newegg
10 February 2005
  • Summary: Fairly easy to set up and get working, I do have problems with print jobs locking up to the point I can not clear them without stopping the running process if the print server is not on and through all of it's set up checks before I send a print job to it. Other than that it works fine.

Hawking Tech. HPS1P Print Server

jphui, PriceGrabber
22 November 2004
  • Summary: I think the product is good for small office or home use. If you want speed then, buy a network printer instead. All I can said is that the product is good for normal use. It's not good for POS system which I'm using it for.
  • Pros: easy to connect to any parallel printer.
  • Cons: printing is not as fast as I thought.

Hawking Tech. HPS1P Print Server

normd, PriceGrabber
13 August 2004
  • Summary: The Hawking Print server is very similar to the NetGear unit although I found the latter to be a bit more user friendly. Once I installed the software on the main PC, printing worked flawlessly as did it when I installed the software on the client machines.
  • Pros: Easy to get up and running
  • Cons: Upgrading with the wrong drivers disabled it. Had to get it replaced.
