5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Have used this and the StarTech parallel card for years. First in Win98 boxes, currently have several hundred deployed in XP boxes. Never an issue until the device that's connected to it gets hit by lightning :)

Cons: None - works like it's supposed to.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: As usual, great service and shipping from NewEgg.

Cons: Can't install the XP 32bit driver successfully (from the CD or as downloaded from manufacturer's website). Of course, the manual and instructions are essentially useless.

Other Thoughts: Usually I use StarTech products on Linux machines and have never had a single problem getting them working (or keeping them working). So it's probably XP's fault.
