Summary: There's not a whole lot to say about a print server. This one is nice and simple. I do wish set-up was easier, however. Unless I'm missing something, you have to use the setup file included on the disk to install the printer on a new computer.
Pros: Small and efficient. Seems to print with no trouble.
Summary: I can confirm that this item works with the Dymo Twin Turbo label printer. I didn't see this printer on the hardware compatibility list, nevertheless, the unit is working as we need it to.
Pros: I bought this print server to share a Dymo Twin Turbo label printer. Prior to purchasing this item the printer was shared on a Windows box, and the workstation's sharing service and print spooler service were giving us problems. Using this print server, workstations can print directly to the prin...
Cons: None. It doesn't make any difference to me, but this item is not wireless. It needs an wired Ethernet network connection.
Summary: This replaced an old HP 10MB Jet Direct that was beginning to fail.
Pros: Not sure why some people have trouble setting this little guy up. My network IP schema does not match the default IP on the product, but that was not a problem. I connected network and power, popped in the CD, the Wizard found the unit on the network, I set a static IP that matched the IP port th...
Cons: Time will tell. As long as it keeps passing on print jobs, I'm happy.
Summary: Excellent printer server for reviving an old printer. A basic understanding of network IP setting might be helpful. Knowing how to log into your router to determine IP range and default gateway. Installed on two Windows 8.1 and one Windows 7 machines.

Summary: Setup worked pretty quickly but for some strange reason it killed my network. I have to troubleshoot to see what happened, but after I set it up to use DHCP and successfully sent a print job to it, it shut down all my Ethernet. No communications would work from any node.
Summary: This is a great print server and it should get 5 stars. However, someone in there infinite wisdom set the Ip to static instead of DHCP. The IP address is set to 192.168.0.10. If you are like like most of us our IP is 192.168.1. Once you can get the IP changed it is easy to set up.
Summary: If you follow the directions and you know what IP address is available outside the DHCP range on your network, the setup is easy. Because the device is so simple and uses an older but universally supported protocol, you have to get every detail right on both the device setup and the computer printer...
Summary: it wasn't as easy to install as I thought. I wanted something easy and quick to install. Not because I'm not tech savy but because I didn't want to mess with this printer, instead I had to and still have to do some trouble shooting to try ti figure out why my printer doesn't work.
