5 out of 5 eggsproduct works - drivers asix.com.tw

Pros: PCIe x1 single channel to Parallel Port. Simple to install. Legacy use hard to replace otherwise.

Cons: IO Crest Mfg is out of business. Driver disk for newer O/S (Win 7 64 bit) info file directs to new owner - but their site says PCIe bridge products sold to Asix.com.tw. Look for Moschip9901 SY-PEX10008 there for driver download.

Other Thoughts: This is not an unusual problem for legacy hardware.

2 out of 5 eggsDOS driver sucks

Pros: 64 bit Win 7 AMD driver works fine

Cons: Dos driver sucks. Will not co-exist with an onboard LPT1 port, command switches do not function as advertised,. Inspite of the included test function verifying operation it does not print to a printer that works fine with the onboard MB port. Total FAIL in DOS. Removed the card and used a manual printer switch.

Other Thoughts: I am guessing all cards with this chipset are using drivers from MOS and will function the same, that is to say, NOT AT ALL.

1 out of 5 eggsdidn't work for me

Pros: price, reasonably fast response from tech support emails; that gets it 1 egg.

Cons: It didn't work for me on Windows 8, HP, AMD A8-5500, 8 GB, Quad core machine. Kept getting "Page fault in Non-page area" (BSOD) message. Even tried manual install per other notes and relatively fast response from 2 tech support emails. Error screen kept coming up before I could finish installing; finally just gave up, got tired of constantly removing & adding the card (and the risks involved). Now, it's beyond return period and I'm stuck with something I can't use; won't even look good as a paperweight. Will need to reconsider future purchases from this company.

Other Thoughts: I may have fixed the big picture concern of using older printers by converting my parallel cables to USB by adding USB adapters on the end. Now my parallel printers connect to USB ports. But, I'm still stuck with something I can't use, doesn't seem to work, and can't return. It's a good thing it didn't cost very much.

1 out of 5 eggsNo Go with Windows 8

Pros: None

Cons: Would not install drivers on Windows 8 PC. Started install program, when I clicked Install it just gave me the message, "Installation has been aborted", with no reason, no description, no nothing. Newegg listing says compatible with Win8 but the actual package only says up thru Win7.

Other Thoughts: I should also note that: (1) the actual brand is I/OCrest, although there is a sticker on the box with the SY-PEX10008 model number, (2) the actual install filename doesn't match what's shown in the manual, (3) the manual first directs you to install the card, and then at the next step (software install) it starts off by saying, "Make sure that you have not inserted PCIe card into PCIe slot" (it tells you to install the card later on!!), (4) the I/OCrest website doesn't even show this card as a current product, (5) the I/OCrest website offers NO support information at all, and (6) clicking "Contact Us" on the I/OCrest website gives you the phone number for the factory in China!! AAAARRRRGGGG!!
I must ALSO note, however, in fairness to Newegg, that when I contacted them via Chat and spoke with Katherine, she went ABOVE AND BEYOND to take care of me, giving me a complete and total hassle-free refund!! Wow!! What a relief!!

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsWorks!!! Hallelujah!!!

Pros: MosChip works great! I can finally trust a chipset that is affordable and works with Windows 8!!!

You just need to know what your doing though.

Cons: For those not able to install it, I advise you to consult Customer's Support for instructions to install the product "manually".

Not really a con, but more advising to contact them first before giving up like most people.

Other Thoughts: Surprisingly, Syba has great customer's support! They don't take a week to answer a question, only an hour or 2 during a business day.

And thanks to emailing them, I don't have to spend lots of time on the phone...

1 out of 5 eggsAwful - do not buy

Pros: Absolutely positively none.

Cons: Doesn't work - locks up computer

Other Thoughts: Got the card, installed it and computer wouldn't get past POST (Note: I've fixed computers professionally for over 15 years). Removed card and everything works normally. Tried to do an RMA but it would cost me as much as the purchase price to send it back WASTE OF MONEY!! Wish I could give it a zero.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Perhaps the PCIe slot on the motherboard is defective, try using a different PCIe slot if available.
