4 out of 5 eggsWorks with AKS HASP HL 3.25

Pros: Works with Husqvarna Viking 4D/5D/6D Embroidery USB dongle key (manufacturer: AKS model: HASP HL 3.25) as well as AutoDigitizing 4.0 USB dongle key.

Cons: I have two USB dongle keys. I cannot put a USB hub on the USB Net share station and have both keys work. The hub gets recognized but only allows one USB device to be used. Bought a second USB Net Share Station to have both on-line.

Other Thoughts: As other reviewers pointed out, it is a point-to-point connection so only one software app one one computer can be used at one time, even if the same app is installed on a desktop and laptop. It would be nice if it was a solution like SmarterX where your app could be installed on more than one computer (desktop and laptop) using only one of your USB dongle keys. But still worth the money not to risk loosing a USB dongle.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless

Pros: It showed up in one piece.

Cons: Requires a DHCP server to set a fixed IP address, despite the software making it seem otherwise.

Does not talk to a Makerbot 2X.

5 out of 5 eggsIt Works!

Pros: It works and works well as a USB print server in a Hyper V environment where a USB device was needed to be moved to network. Web interface, password protection (minimal) and simple software works.

Cons: Only con has do with aesthetics... like all BYTECC products they look cheap. LED's are old dome style and ultra bright. This does not effect performance and so no star was taken.

Other Thoughts: After returning IOGEAR GPSU21 1-Port Print Server device twice (Do NOT buy that device unless you want headaches) the BYTECC BT-UP01 was a quick, cheap and an easy fix! BTW, its a USB device and therefor by design it doesn't except multihosts, please keep this in mind when purchasing.

3 out of 5 eggsSo so

Pros: Works

Cons: Did not meet my needs. I was trying to remote an input device, like a mouse. The device sends the mouse movements at slow intervals, something like 2 samples per second. So you can't use this for any HID devices, like mouse, joysticks, touchpads, etc.

4 out of 5 eggsWork as described.

Pros: Simple to setup
Works with Brother USB label printer and Trendnet usb to serial converter
Software/driver works with Windows 8

Cons: LAN only

Other Thoughts: The main purpose of buying this device is using USB devices in a Windows Guess OS inside Hyper-V. And it works. I was able to have the Win8 VM talked to the label printer and was able to configure a firewall via the serial console port.
FW console port -> serial to usb adapter -> usb to ip device(this box) -> Win8 VM running putty on COM3 (which is the serial to usb adapter port)

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Product

Pros: Good price.
Fast delivery.
Easy Return

Cons: Documentation did not match program screens.
Only one PC can be connected at a time. If PC1 is connected, it must disconnect before PC2 can connect.
Program is poorly documented. Program worked on one PC, failed on 2nd, and 2nd then would not shut down.

Other Thoughts: Not much better than a switch box. It is not what printer sharing is commonly understood to be.

3 out of 5 eggsAdd to a wireless network to share usb

Pros: a print server for wireless routers that do not have a print server option. Share usb devices through your wireless router.

Cons: Description is not at all clear. I had to read reviews and description to figure out what it does. Good routers have built in hard drive storage and print servers already on them. If your router has a usb port on it, go to your router's website and do some research.

Other Thoughts: Since good routers have a print server and hard drive storage built in, people with good routers don't need this device. If you're using an old router or a value priced, you may need this device. BUT this is not just a print server/storage server. The UNIQUENESS of this device is that it supports other USB devices. If you have something other than a printer or hard drive you want to share that uses USB, this device would be nice. You have to have the wireless network to which you already connect.

2 out of 5 eggsNot what I thought it was

Pros: If it works, it would be very useful for sharing a USB device that is physically close to your router.

Cons: This is a device that shares a USB device over the wifi network by having a hard line into the router. At a glance, I had thought it was a wireless USB adapter. The fault is probably on me for not looking more carefully, but overall this is a counter-intuitive device. Why would I want to share a webcam that is physically attached to my router?

Other Thoughts: A weird device with limited applications like sharing a large external hard drive (which you could easily do with your desktop anyway). Not sure why it exists, and its description was not entirely clear.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth It!!!

Pros: Cheaper compared to buying wireless hard drive
Easy installation for basic user (Fast software install)
Compatible w/ (maybe larger but I have only) 1TB hard drive (Western Digital My Book)
All necessary components in package
Small device
Bright indicator light (Pro and Con)
Works behind network firewall
Simple solution

Cons: Depending on size of hard drive takes about 3-5 minutes to show up in your My Computer hard drive attachments
Bright indicator light (Pro and Con)
Instructions speak of some orange icon (I still haven't seen it) but it works just fine without it. I have grey icon.
Must have software installed on every device that you plan on using with server adapter.
Only one attached device at a time, can't pull from same hard drive from different computers simultaneously
It must be close enough your router so that it may connect into its wired port.

Other Thoughts: This is so far exactly what I wanted for the price, nothing fancy just wanted to create some wireless access with my hard drive and didn't want to shell out the clams for another large capacity wireless hard drive. You do need have it close to your router but at least your laptop doesn't have to stay connected to your hip. I would recommend this to any friend.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked perfectly for Sentinel/Rainbow SuperPro licensing dongle

Pros: P2V'ed a server with Siemens Insight that uses Sentinel/Rainbow SuperPro licensing dongle. The emulation worked perfectly. Client software comes in x86 and x64 flavors.

Cons: The client software has to run in a user session. A Windows service would have been ideal.

Other Thoughts: Buying a second one to store here onsite in case they ever become discontinued.
