Works with "non-GDI/CAPT"

Frederick L., Newegg
17 January 2014
  • Pros: None yet
  • Cons: The description fails to specify this device works with non-GDI/CAPT printers. Do a search to verify your printer is not one of the non supported printers. Many common low priced printers are in this category.

Meh

Benjamin T., Newegg
19 December 2012
  • Pros: When it works it's fine, it's a print server and it seems to work with a lot of printers
  • Cons: After it has been on for a few days it freezes and the only way to get it back is power cycling. I don't print that much and it seems more a nuisance than it's worth to have to cycle power every time I want to print something. Even with the latest firmware it still has this problem.

  • Summary: It took me a few hours to get it working. The hangup was in getting the wireless printers parameters to EXACTLY match my router's. After that, it worked fine. If a printer dies, I can simply unplug the wireless print server and move it to another printer. Negative: there is no email tech support. No response whatsoever.

Junk

Anonymous, Newegg
26 March 2012
  • Summary: After scratching my head for an hour wondering why nothing is working on EITHER printer, I call the tech support. The first guy I get was about usless and smug as they come. Then I called back and got one even worse. I couldn't understand a word she was saying and on top of mumbling, it sounded like she was standing 10 feet away from the phone.
  • Pros: none I can't think of when they don't work.
  • Cons: I bought two of these to connect a Oki printer and a cannon for a customer.

Small compact size wireless printer server

Gabriel R., Newegg
1 January 2010
  • Summary: -USB connecting cable is very short, I would recommend to include a velcro tape for fixing the WPS to the printer.
  • Pros: -Very small compact size
  • Cons: -The level of technical documentation will not help somebody with existing wireless setup and no IP/wireless networking experience.

home use only

  • Pros: it's small and is perfect for personal printers.
  • Cons: the extension isn't made well so the contacts won't touch unless you cram paper in to make it fit - even then it's spotty. after i got it to work, i put the machine that originally set up the printer on the server to sleep - and viola! the printer disappears! i tried to use it on a brother laser color printer. truth is after spending about 4 hours of jacking with it i decided to just run an ethernet cable to the printer..luckily it was in the same room. don't get this...
