There aren't many products today that are easily turn-key or plug-and-play. I already had a bluetooth USB adapter on a desktop running XP-Home and looking for devices. I plugged this adapter into the parallel port of a dusty Canon BJC-2100 sitting on the shelf. It was discovered and printing with almost no effort. I then turned on shared and the printer was available to any other machines on my network, including wireless laptop, etc. Installations this easy are pretty rare nowadays. I have not tried the usb interface yet, but expect the same easy installation.

I used a Linksys bluetooth USB adapter (USBBT100) and this IOGEAR adapter. Connect it to the printer, turn the printer and the adapter on. Connection was simple. Printer is in another building 240 feet from the computer. Signal has to pass thru three block walls to get to the printer and it works every time I print.
