C2G 16898 overview

  • 1Description

The 6.0' USB IEEE-1284 Parallel Printer Adapter from C2G uses the USB port on your PC or hub, so your parallel port remains free for a zip drive or scanner. If you have multiple printers, you can eliminate the need for a switchbox by connecting each printer to a USB port. The device is fully transparent to the user, and is ideal for true bi-directional communication. This adapter auto-negotiates hardware recognition for faster protocol setup, and is fully plug-and-play compatible.

    USB IEEE-1284 Parallel Printer Adapter (6.0') is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does not work on some printers. When I bought a new computer, it didn't have a parallel port for my HP 6L laser printer. This cable appeared to be the best option to keep running my old laser printer. But I find that this is one model that these cables evidently are ineffective on. Do a web search first to see if this cable will work on your printer. I searched after finding it wouldn't work, and it became obvious that there is something about this model of printer, and evidently a few others, that is incompatible with these types of cables. Nothing against this cable, I just should have done my homework first.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works EXACTLY as described I saw some comments saying that it was incompatible with their HP LaserJet printers. I wanted folks to know that it absolutely, positively works with LaserJet 4000 & 4050 printers. Bought 2 cables. My only con is that it is 6' so I had to rearrange one of the work areas. If you read and follow the directions to the tee, it will work exactly as described. Pinky swear. The first installation I did, I skipped a step and it didn't work. Note: use Windows Update to grab the printer where applicable if it isn't on the list

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from i would buy this product again does exactly what it was supposed to do
    Date published: 2015-10-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would heartily recomend this product. Good performance! It is being used to connect an older printer to my new computer via a USB port.
    Date published: 2017-05-26
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Windows 8 Compatible A quality product, not sure about its future as parallel ports are rapidly disappearing from all products & being replaced by USB ports. I bought this to connect an old workhorse printer; unfortunately, the manufacturer no longer provides updated drivers that work with new PC running Windows 8. Thought this cable would provide the solution, but it didn't.
    Date published: 2014-04-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Wrinkle to Using an Old Printer I installed this for an elderly lady who had an older Epson parallel printer that she wanted to use with a new Windows 8.1 computer system. It worked just great!
    Date published: 2014-06-26
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1 every 10 cables works Ok, System does Our company have bought 50 of this cables and no more than 20 units were able to work. Are detected by the OP. Sys as a USB plugging in but not the Printer (HP LaserJet 5)
    Date published: 2010-11-12
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not work on Windows 7 A good product for Windows XP but not Windows 7. It shows up as an "unspecified device" and will not print to a Laserjet 4M.
