    It was an easy install. Took it out of the box, plugged it in an away I went. I would definitely recommend this print server. I am using it on an Mac OS X, Windows XP and Windows 7. All were easy.

    not worth the effort or money

    this device kept disconnecting from our server. it did not detect any printers even though they had been succesfully installed and tested.

      This product used to install new printers (specifically Dymo label printers) into our network. The setup is very easy and it just works! I really couldn't have anything to say bad about it. Cheap and easy fix for when network print servers are messed up and it gets us away from the "big" network print servers.

            Product worked great. I was sharing an old USB connected printer on my home network. Got to be a pain because I no longer had a wired desktop computer. I was able to turn my old USB printer into a network device with ipaddress and made it easier for all wireless devices on my network to print to it. Easy to configure.

            The setup was a minor nuisance using the software disc. If you don't know anything about networking it might be too challenging to set up on your own. The set-up wizard is filled with far more settings then what most users will need which might intimidate some. For me it was as simple as plugging in to ethernet and the printers usb, running the wizard, setting it to obtain ip through DHCP, selected my printer/driver from previous devices, and viola! It works. After that I just added the printer by its IP and my computers (osx 10.6 + win7) already knew which driver to use. Works great on the HP LaserJet P2015.

                                I had it setup and running in five minutes. The installation program automatically detected the server so all I had to do is assign it an IP address.

                                I've only had it connected for two weeks so I can not attest to its reliability yet; though it appears well made.

                                The only con that I have is that it is slow to start printing (though this may be caused by my home network instead of the print server.) When my printer is connected directly to the PC via a USB port the printer starts printing within 3 or 4 seconds. When printing through the print server it takes over 10 seconds.

                                  We have three computers in the house: my wired desktop, my wife's wireless desktop and a netbook. My computer had to be ON to print. "Is your computer on?" was a common question from the wife. No more.

                                  I must admit that you must be a little geeky to get it setup. The best advice I have is to delete your shared printer and then find the print server and re-install the printer as a network printer. It helps if you know the ISP number of the device by looking at your router info.

                                    I spent 2 frustrating days trying to get the print server to talk to my printer. After repeatedly destroying my home network mucking about with device addresses, I quit in disgust. The next day, I happened to run accross a FAQ table in their website, and discovered that my HP Laserjet 1020 printer is INCOMPATABLE with this server.

                                      I know my way around IP printing and setting static IP address. This part was easy. On my Mac I set it as under More Printer then HP IP printing. Input the static address I had set it to. It recognized my HP DeskJet 5650, auto selected the driver, and away I printed.

                                      Very happy and the price is right.
