Excerpt: It works ok, but its complicated to install, need to have an open program to use it and only one user can print at time, if you need to use it and there is an other user connected you need to ask him to close the connection before you print.
Summary: Works with Windows 7 fairly well; does not work with Mac 10.9 machines on the same home network. The USB interface is basic and most of the functions of the printer are unavailable; i.e., status, supply levels, printer queue, etc. I only bought this as my Wi-Fi capability went out on my Samsung CLX-3185FW multi-function printer. I was able to connect it to the wireless network via LAN cable and it works 100% better that this solution.
Summary: This was a fair-priced and easy to install print server. We only have a few computers we need to intstall and this fit what we were looking for perfect. The install-cd walked us through the steps fairly quickly and logically. No real problems and the wireless printing is working well.
Excerpt: I installed two TEW-MFP1 servers on my home network. One was attached to a Canon iP4920 and the other to a Canon Pro9000. Now my three computers can share these printers. Each computer runs on a different OS (XP, 7 & 8.1). Only setup problem was caused by my Norton Security Suite. I had to assign fixed IP addresses to the servers so that they could be configured as "Full Trust" in the Norton "Network Security Map". Now everything is working great.
Excerpt: Although i had never heard of this product brand before, I decided to try it since my old print server wasn't Windows 7 compatable. This took all of a few minutes to get this setup and working on 4 computers. Simple setup and instructions and it works perfectly.
Summary: I would have given this product ZERO STARS if possible, but web site wouldn't let me. Box says Apple compatible. It doesn't say the install software only works with a router that uses WEP. But there is a manual workaround. I spent three hours on Friday trying to get this to work. Three more hours on Saturday. I have masters degree in Information Systems from Johns Hopkins. It never did work.
Excerpt: I am the IT specialist at a health clinic and we have usb receipt printers at about 3 locations that were just not functioning as planned. After pulling what little hair I had left out just keeping these guys working I decided to try a print server and ended up with this one (TEW-MFP1) set it up on Friday still working today so far so good. on a side note if it still is working by end of week I will be buying these for the rest of our clinics.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible, Reliable
