1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Not much. I guess IF you need a parallel port on ps2 connectors it would be worth something to you.

Cons: My company purchased me a new laptop and gave me this as a docking station. It will not do anything to connect you to anything that you would normally need a docking station for. No video, no audio. In you have a newer laptop you should have enough USB ports and this will only add one more port than you already have. Just seems like a waste of money.

Other Thoughts: This WAS NOT purchased at NewEgg. If it had been I would send it back.

4 out of 5 eggsPowered PS/2 Ports!

Pros: I had a piece of legacy equipment that requires a PS/2 port to provide power. Unfortunately, it is getting hard to find any computers, especially laptops, that have any of those these days. Using a standard USB-PS/2 adapter was not an option, as those can only draw as much power as the USB standard is written for, whereas PS/2 is rated for much more.

I bought this unit to try and future-proof my shop, so that we would be able to calibrate our legacy equipment for as long as USB remains standard.

The PS/2 ports powered up my equipment as soon as I plugged in the wall wart. Driver installation from the CD took about 3 minutes (XP Professional SP3). Everything except the parallel port is working fine.

Cons: The parallel port driver does not seem to want to install. I've tried installing it with the main installer, and doing it manually, but neither parppl.inf or parupl.inf are working.

Other reviewers have said that Vista/7 support is non-existant. I don't have either of those installed at work, so I can't check for myself.

Other Thoughts: The drivers take up 12.4MB on the installation disc, Adobe Reader takes up 390MB. That's some real tight coding there, Adobe.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent unit for XP or older

Pros: replicates ports in a very usable fashion when used with the correct drivers

Cons: No Vista or later drivers for use with additional USB ports. From PL-2301 chipset driver page: "NOTE: PL-2301 already discontinued (EOL) and does not support Vista and later OS. For Vista OS, please refer to PL-25A1 product." This uses the PL-2301 chipset. Networking and other ports will work, but not the additional USB ports. Must downlaod drivers from as noted by previous reviewer.

Other Thoughts: Worked great until my Dad got a newer laptop running Windows 7. He needed the extra USB ports.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat thing if you know what you need

Pros: This is an amazing USB device for the price. In fact it is 5 different devices in a single box - USB to serial converter, USB to parallel converter, USB-USB transfer cable, USB network adapter, USB keyboard/mouse converter and USB HUB. Each of these devices typically cost minimum $30 separately. And what is important all these devices are built on excellent Prolific chipsets that have great driver support - linux kernel recognizes them by default and latest drivers for windows and mac are available at . If you're looking just for an USB-to-serial converter or USB network adapter, this is a great device. If you need a docking station, this is probably not what you want.

Cons: The software that comes with device is outdated and buggy, and one has to know about to make any use of device.

Other Thoughts: Much of negative reviews come from the fact that people were unaware about latest drivers.

1 out of 5 eggsPlease do Better!

Pros: I saw that this was the only product purporting to act as a docking station for my Macbook, and the price is low, so I thought I'd give it a try. Someone really ought to make a docking station for Macbooks. This is not it.

Cons: What mac user wants more serial and parallel ports, PS2 mouse and keyboard ports, and two USB ports thrown in? There's no support for firewire or any of the faster data transfer cables. Furthermore, I was only able to find PC drivers for it.

Other Thoughts: In the end, its not even a good paperweight, but a flimsy piece of plastic with a bad logo stamped on it.

3 out of 5 eggsXP Trouble

Pros: It does what it says, replicates ports and acts as ageneric dock for laptops that don't have a proprietary dock.

Cons: USes a bunch or odd serial port drivers that can be a pain to load on XP. I gave up and just live with no serial ports or network on the block. Also keep in mind, while the ports on the replicator are USB 2.0, you need it on the laptop too. Mass storage and external drives may not work properly when daisy chained like that.

Other Thoughts: Could have been better, good luck finding something for the price. Let me know if you do.

2 out of 5 eggsNot fully XP USB Compatible

Pros: Good price

Cons: Attempted to install and use on new high end laptop and ran into issues with all of the laptop devices being seen in XP Home on a new clean install. Reinstalled drivers and contacted manufacture customer support and they gave a half-hearted attempt to trouble shoot and then gave up claiming we have "compatibility issues" and would not RMA. Further, when installing the drivers XP gave the non-certified driver error. Manufacture supports note that the device is XP compatible due to installing it and testing it on a laptop or two at their shop and it worked. In short, StarTech advertises that this works with XP, but in my experience it does not and one should beware of this device.

Other Thoughts: As a note, I did a return/RMA with NewEgg and had to pay the restocking fee, but bought a "Txxgus" like model for a bit more and it worked.
