5 out of 5 eggsServes its purpose well.

Pros: Works perfectly in connecting my old HP 1100 Laserjet to both my desktop PC and Macbook.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: As a side note, a driver download from HP was needed to get the HP 1100 working with the Macbook.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: It works 1st time and is still working fine. That deserves a 5 any day!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: i was apprehensive about these products because I heard it's hit and miss in getting one that works. I'm really glad I chose this company because their product works the first time and i'm printing away like a mad man. Also, NEW EGG ROCKS as usual in terms of awesome company, fast service, and incredibly competitive prices!

5 out of 5 eggsNot a problem

Pros: Didn't need drivers in Vista. Don't know about XP or lower, but worked wonderfully.

Cons: None I am aware of.

Other Thoughts: For selling cheaper products than the rest, Rosewill has been surprisingly good in quality in adapters and input devices I have purchased.

3 out of 5 eggsFirst one didn't work, second one works great

Pros: Now that we have a working cable, it's wonderful. And so much cheaper than buying a whole replacement cable. Just plug in to the existing cable and you're all set.

Cons: First cable we got didn't work.
If you want to return an item, newegg will not refund your shipping, even if the reason for the return is that the item is faulty. But they didn't charge repeat shipping on sending the second one.

Other Thoughts: We got one of these cables and pulled our hair out for an entire weekend trying to get it to work. Finally decided that the cable was bad, and called Newegg for a replacement. They sent it quickly, and the second one worked immediately. So if you're frustrated, saying that this product doesn't work, maybe your original cable was faulty like ours. Anyway, we gave the first cable 1 star, the second 5 stars, so came up with a 3 star overall rating. By the way, the geek squad told us that this item doesn't exist. I'm so glad I decided to look at newegg one more time!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Vista

Pros: Works with Windows Vista. It's a HP Deskjet 672c, yep, it was a Windows 95 printer.

Cons: Wish it was black.

Other Thoughts: Drivers for this particular printer were not avaliable but used a substitute driver that came with Vista. RCW-602 didn't care. :-) Works great.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Installation couldn't be easier.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My new computer lacks a parallel port. I didn't want to give up my flawlessly performing 8 year old laser printer. This product solved my problem.
