1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Mistake

Pros: see below

Cons: see below

Other Thoughts: I should have paid more attention to the other reviews here. This thing is impossible to set up and I am still waiting for an RMA from Startech. Their tech support guy could not get any of our PCs to recognize either of the two print servers we were trying to set up -- even wired directly into the PC (forget about the network).
That is sick....avoid this thing at all costs!

1 out of 5 eggsCould be better

Pros: Small, light, simple

Cons: Default ip address not in range for most typical home routers. Would have been far more sensible to let it get an address from the router.

Other Thoughts: Comes with a default ip address of 192.168.2.2. Most home routers have a range of 192.168.1.1 - 199 or 192.168.0.1 - 199 which means for most people - you won't be able to access this router. You will either have to change your router or configure your Ethernet port to a fixed address and directly connect to it. That's what I did. However, after configuring so it would be visible on my home network, I could never access it again. Updating its settings caused it to fail. Its now in the trash can.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems

Pros: I have an HP Laserjet 3200 and this server works great.

Cons: Tricky to setup but once you do should be good to go been running mine for 1-2 years and still working I'm impressed.

Other Thoughts: They could polish up the software a little but once you get to know it it's not to bad.

3 out of 5 eggsHorrible to configure

Pros: Unlike some other cheap print servers at least this one works (more-or-less).

Cons: Stupid default IP address 192.168.2.2 ? Come on! At least default to DHCP and let me print off the config.

Have not been able to get it to work with Win 7 64 bit. Provided software will not work on Win 7. Won't work via TCP/IP and LPR. Won't work via TCP/IP and RAW.

Other Thoughts: Anyone who has gotten this to work with Win 7 64 bit care to share exactly how they did that?

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: works as a print server using Windows 7 64bit

Cons: setup was a bit of a pain and like the previous reviews say to give it a static IP they are right. For those who aren't very familiar with networking make sure your router is set to give it a static IP as well, not just the print server set to be static.

Other Thoughts: Also it doesn't work as a scanner server for those who have all in one printers

2 out of 5 eggsehhh okayyy

Pros: It's a print server that mostly works

Cons: Sometimes it's funky about things. Sometimes you have to unplug it in order to get it to accept print jobs. It's easier just to buy a printer with a network jack and hook it up to your network directly.

Other Thoughts: Just spend another 50$ and buy a new printer that you can plug into your network. It's easier and will be less hassle than dealing with this.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works well with almost any printer & O.S. including both Vista 32 & 64.

Cons: Can be a little tricky to setup when the printer & Windows can't find it. Important to give it a static IP address from initial setup & locate it by the IP. Can be called a generic print server & Windows will use it. Don't ever turn it off after you have it setup.

4 out of 5 eggsMac compatible

Pros: supports appletalk; claims to support lots of protocols

Cons: couldn't get anything but appletalk to work on my Mac

Other Thoughts: For some reason it is configured by default not to use DHCP and comes up at 192.168.2.2 (which probably isn't your subnet) so it's not exactly plug-and-play. It does have a web interface to make it more non-windows-friendly and it is the cheapest print server I could find that claims to support Appletalk. I would really like to be able to use LPD and SMB but I couldn't get either protocol to work from my Mac. Next time I hook up a PC I'll see if their configuration software (windows only) helps.
