5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked
Kept legacy (pre-y2k) office junk functional far beyond its lifespan.

Cons: Kept legacy office junk functional FAR beyond its lifespan...which means I had to keep supporting it.

Other Thoughts: Legacy ports, sometimes you have to have them.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works, eventually. Maybe.

Cons: Echo everything everyone else has said about this not being plug and play. If it takes me an hour to figure out the driver on the CD, it's going to take you all day, then you're going to give up and buy another one. Spare yourself the trouble and keep looking.

Other Thoughts: I left the driver download from the syba site going, just for kicks. Three hours later, we've downloaded 412kb. WTG.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

For plug and play, the description was for the serial ports themselves. Not for the installation because the drivers either is installed using a setup.exe application or has the option of installing it manually.

The installation may be a little difficult for Windows 7 and 8, but it can be done. Please contact our Support team to walk you through the installation process at support@sybausa.com.

1 out of 5 eggscheap cards, cheap results.... not worth it.

Pros: None....

Cons: It just did not work.....I bought 6 and after troubleshooting three of them in three different computer(lenovo m77-1995) They just freeze at Bios....

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

This card and chipset has been on the market for years. From the issue you are experiencing, it is very unlikely to have all the cards not functioning properly.

From our experiences, it might be a driver or compatibility issue. This is a PCI card, people buy this type of cards usually for connecting to old devices. Many of the old devices offer driver for old Windows version and newer Windows might not function well. For this reason, when install the card, Windows device manager configurations are required. Feel free to contact our technical support for additional help.

Our technical support team is available to help 9am-5pm M-F. Feel free to contact us during those business hours. We can also be reached at support@sybausa.com

There is also a 3 year warranty for our cards to guarantee you a funtional product.

We apologize for any issues that you are having. As you know we are more than happy to provide our customers with a hassle free exchange when a product is defective.

Thank you for purchasing one of our products, and for leaving us your valuable feedback. We value all positive and negative feedback.

4 out of 5 eggsPCI to Parallel port

Pros: great for use with older printer.

Cons: software was hard to figure out.

Other Thoughts: was a bit of effort to get software. Suspect the best way is to install card, put mini disk in and let win 7 find the software.. but when it works it a dream.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great for controlling hardware

Pros: I'm using this to control some lights using a relay board with a parallel port connection. I was happy to find that the card acts just like a built in parallel port card in that the data lines remember their state even after the program setting them exits.

The driver for this card was loaded automatically in Centos Linux 5.7 64bit.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The IO address was different then the standard linux 0x378 address but was easily found using the command dmesg | grep parport

1 out of 5 eggsBad do not purchase

Pros: None

Cons: First of all the drivers for the card were not disk sent with card, once I found the drivers and got the card install the printer would not print through it. I put another computer to the printer and it printed so this card does not work. I own a computer store and for something that should take 15 minutes, waste of my time and not worth the shipping to send back. Do not waste your money on this product

5 out of 5 eggsWIn7 Pro - works fine

Pros: Win7 Pro & Ultimate, XP - have used this port in all and never had any issues. I just need a simple parallel port to run old Oki printers and this works great. I think on XP I had it find drvers on the disk but on Win7 it just finds and installs them.

Have read reviews here about being cheap, not working, etc...I have not encountered those issues at all. I'm a system builder and find this card to be reliable, easy to install and have not had one fail yet. I probably have some of this exact card that are at least a few years old and again, no failures.

Cons: None that I've found but again, I'm using a simple pin printer (dot matrix).

Other Thoughts: I think, using XP, just pop the CD in and when it goes to install drivers just make sure the CD/DVD is one of the search paths. As I have installed a few of these and if it was a big hassle I would switch to another brand...but it hasn't been!
