Pros: I chose the TP-Link TL-PS110P because someone said it worked with Windows 7 64bit. I took it out of the box, hooked it up, and followed the instructions. The installation wizard that came with the port wouldn't run so I downloaded the installation wizard from the web site. It ran and installed th...
Summary: If the device worked, it would be great, but crashing twice a week isn't an option. Their support could also use some improvement.
Pros: The device is quick to connect, and easy to setup. We were up and running within minutes. In theory it's a great device to keep legacy printers up and running
Cons: I believe we got a defective product. About 2 times a week, more or less, the device will stop communicating with the network. There is no rhyme or reason that we've found but suddenly the device stops responding to pings and stops printing anything. The only fix is to do a hardware reset, which ...
Summary: The TL-PS110P works well for windows documents, but fails to pass through some of simple printer control commands (form length, to be specific). I'll take this one home for the kids, but it's not for serious business use.
Summary: This print server works on both my Win XP 32-bit and Win7 64-bit machines. I had to install these because my Hawking print server ports were not recognized by my new Windows 7 PC. I was hesitant about replacing my Hawking print servers, as they have always worked well with no problems.
Pros: Allows me to continue using my old Brother and Canon Printers on the network with both Win7 and Win XP. An inexpensive upgrade.
Cons: None really. Easily replaced my Hawking devices.
Summary: The fact that the web based admin interface didn't work with Google Chrome made setting this up take much longer than it needed to. I ended up using telnet to change the devices settings before realizing that the web interface works with Internet Exploder.
Pros: Full featured print server, low cost.
Cons: Web based administrative interface browser compatibility.
Summary: When I installed the first server, I didn't have to configure the Windows machine with a static IP. That may only be necessary under Windows 8.
Pros: Tiny - easily fits inside cable compartment of HP 6P. My first server failed for reasons unknown after 1+ years, but it had worked fine in the meantime so I bought another to replace it. I needed help getting it installed, but the ladies on the help desk were knowledgeable and patient.
Cons: Setup is awkward. It comes with the static IP address 192.168.0.10. You have to use the setup utility (a Windows program from the included CD, or downloaded from the TP-Link website) to reset it. But you first have to configure your Windows machine with a static IP address on that subnet (e.g., 1...
Excerpt: I had to print out the manual to do the setup because the quick guide font was to small. Onec I had the manual the setup went quickly and has it has worked flawlessly. I will be purchasing a second print server soon.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Efficient, Quality Construction, Reliable
Summary: Great idea which saves you from obsoleting your decades old printer!
Pros: I am using the paeallel version with an HP4P Laserjet which was NOT listed in the compatibility table. However, it works like a charm connected to my Ethernet-connected router (hard-wired). If you have the option, the USB may provide a faster data transfer if that is a consideration for you.
Pros: Good once it's setup. Don't use the CD. Download the latest software from their website.
Cons: I was pulling my hair out trying to set its IP address. Using the software on the CD I couldn't get my changes to stick. It kept reverting to the wrong IP. I read some comments and one said CD software was no good and to download it from the website instead.
