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. Haven't had time to check for firmware updates, but this was a little irritating. How hard is it to make a web page work in all browsers (i.e. not hard). Besides this, I'm happy with the device, and would recommend it.
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., 192.168.0.100), or the setup utility cannot find the print server. That part is not explained in the documentation. The rest of the setup is straightforward. Once finished, you...
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.
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 is a very slick little device. It attached to the back of my HP LaserJet 4Plus printer and took up no more room than the parallel port cable connector it replaced. I plugged in power and cat 5e cable and turned everything on.
Pros: As small as a Centronics parallel port connector
Summary: It takes a bit of futzing to get this to work, and setting up the printer on your various PCs can be a little bit of a chore, but once you get through all that it does work seamlessly. The only real problem I have had is that I get print timeouts because I'm having a network problem but the printer shows as online - in other words, there is not remote status reporting via the Windows print dialogs.
Pros: - Small
Cons: - Uses a separate AC adapter instead of using power from the printer.
