When I bought this card, I was expecting all kinds of issues with installation, drivers, and such. I had not a single problem...
Steps: - Add the card to the PC. - Boot Windows 7 - New hardware automatically detected and driver installed. - Plug Printer into parallel port. - New printer automatically detected and driver installed.
Overall I'm satisfied with this product. Wish the documentation was more clear.
PROS: Works great, did what it was advertised to do. Needed it to be able to use my serial printer. My new motherboard that doesn't support serial printers.
CONS: Had a little problem loading the correct drivers, the documentation didn't really specify which drivers I needed to use for my system. After several trial & error I got the right one loaded and it worked great.
I used this in a friend's new computer system for a 10+ year old printer they didn't want to replace. It worked like a charm, however creepy it is seeing Windows 7 operate a printer started on Windows 98.
