This is my 3rd print server. My first was a linksys, and worked great, but didn't support USB. My second was Hawking, and I never could get it to work properly. This one works great. It is completely glitch free, even though they don't specifically support my printers. I had some problems installing (under Windows XP) because their instructions only work for one printer. They tell you to accept the default name when creating the printer port - basically the TCP/IP address with an extension. If you do this, when you try to add another printer port for the second printer, you will run into problems creating the port. If you give them different names, it works fine. The tech support tried, but wasn't able to help me with this problem. I still really like this because the pain was temporary, and the efficiency goes on and on.

This is a great product at a great price. Very easy to set-up and get printing within minutes out of the box. I purchased this mainly because I wanted the other computers on our home network to be be able to print if my Laptop(configured as the print server) was turned off, or I was away on business. I have two printers, 1 USB and 1 parallel, and this supports both of them, with room to add one more printer in the future!
