    No parallel port, no problem
    I have an old Laserjet 1100A printer with a parallel port I wanted to use with a Dell laptop that didn't have a parallel port. I looked at a few options, but this cable was the easiest and cheapest. It essentially turns a USB port into a parallel port! Win7 recognized the printer and installed the usual HP drivers. No other drivers needed. Exactly what I was looking for. Monoprice, you rock!

    PROS: Simple, cheap, works

    CONS: None

    Serves its purpose
    I wanted to extend the life of my old printer. My new computer does not have a parallel connection, only USB. Easy plug and play. Computer recognized the printer using this converter. The converter is only USB 1.1 not the faster USB 2.0 or 3.0. That may be the reason why it does not support other equipment. To extend the life of printers with parallel connections, this is an inexpensive and reliable option.

    PROS: Easy connection for old printer to new computer.

    CONS: None.

    A bargain
    The usb to parallel adapter worked perfectly and is a good item to use for an office with a good HP laser printer and a new computer.

    The Price was excellent.

    Works well
    I used this cable to connect an Epson Stylus Color 600 to the USB connection on my NAS device. Everything worked perfectly, and the printer is available from all of the computers on my network.

    Well worth it, if, like me, you are tired of disposing of old printers that still work perfectly fine.

    PROS: Works as expected.

    CONS: None.

    Only works with printers
    This cable works only as a USB to printer devices. I have a robot with parallel port connection which did not work with this adapter. When I plug it in, in the device manager, under USB section a "USB printing device" appears as supposed to other parallel port adapters where they appear as a "parallel port" under ports.

    2nd one
    This is the second one I've ordered. I had an extra HP2100 Printer that I gave to my Sons and his wife to use. Since they both have Lap Tops they didn't have printer ports but USB outlets. The one I have, I've used for over 2 years. Bought a new computer with no printer port, did a search to see if there was anything like this and I found it here. NO problems at all, easy hook up just plug them together and you're done.

    PROS: It works! Easy to hookup.
