Excerpt: This device is not really a print server - it is more like a USB server. You can operate up to 4 USB devices from an attached USB hub (sold seperately). The device comes with server software that is run on a host computer. When the host computer is powered off, access to the server is also off.
Excerpt: This product description is incorrect....it doesn't have 4 USB ports; only 1....there did not meet my needs at all as I needed to connect multiple printers to the server! Very disappointed as I also had to wait almost a week for the part to arrive!
Summary: Useless ! I purchased this to connect to my hp laserjet 1020 in my office. The printer server comes with a small software which is to be installed on each computer to make it work. Thats acceptable , provided that if it works!
Summary: This is a small box, but has bigger effect. Converted by regular HP Laser printer in to a Network printer in seconds. No need to unnecessarily keep computers ON, as its directly connected to the SWITCH. Great Product.
Summary: I got this for connecting a non-network printer in my office. To my surprise, this doesn't just connect printers, i could connect my camera, usb devices and possibly many more (I tried the two only). So though the name says, its a print server, i would say that it is a network usb port.
Summary: Works perfectly with our Samsung SCX-4200 (multi-function mono laser printer) for printing. I haven't tested how well scanning works. Allows us to print via our wireless network from any connected computer and move the printer to a less visible location.
