1 out of 5 eggspiece of CUH-RAP!

Pros: relatively cheap

Cons: totally CHEAP! waste of time...

Other Thoughts: HP M1319l--no response whatsoever. Tried it on two other Laserjets with same response. Certainly NOT worth the time wasted or money spent...

4 out of 5 eggsWorks for me in Windows 7

Pros: Fast. No delay in print jobs. Works with XP, Win7 and Ubuntu 9.10.

Cons: Much easier to set up in Ubuntu than in Windows 7. You will learn a lot about networking whether you want to or not. I followed the Vista set up instructions and got it to work in Win7.

Other Thoughts: Have this little box for over a year. No problems. Have Win 7 and Ubuntu wired in the router and a wireless netbook on XP all printing to one printer Samsung ML-2050.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with my printers but can be tricky to configure PC

Pros: Not a lot that needs to be configured in the device. You can always access it in Network Neighborhood even though you forgot the IP you hardcoded into it. Works with my printers which are not listed in the compatibility list. Supports my new D1660 HP deskjet under Windows 7. Also supports an old HP LaserJet under XP and Vista. Also an HP all-in-one; but didn't try scanning only printing. I own 2 of these.

Cons: Method for adding LPR printer for Vista and Windows 7 is not documentation with device but can be found at the manufacturer's website.

Other Thoughts: With this device, adding my new HP deskjet printer in XP is different than adding it in Win7. With XP, I was able to install it as a TCP/IP printer with a RAW port. But with Windows 7 I had to add the same Deskjet printer using an LPR port; otherwise the test page would print halfway, stop, and then hang up in the queue.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy as Plug-n-Play

Pros: Very easy setup. The included CD setup will hunt your home network, find the print server and walk you through the setup process. It took all of 15 minutes to go from unboxing the device to printing my first page from the printer.

Cons: The documentation isn't the most user-friendly, but the CD wizard makes up for that.

Other Thoughts: I've heard that some printers don't like these USB print servers, but my HP all-in-one worked just fine.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks Great - once you figure it out on your own

Pros: -Saves power at home by freeing your desktop from having to always be on to share printer.
-Compatible with multiple networking protocols (appletalk, IPX, etc)
-Configured via web browser
-fast device boot times (doesn't forever to restart like most routers)
-PJL compatible
-Nice alerting features (via email, etc. would work great for small office print server)
-MAC address based ACL ability

Cons: NO RELEVANT DOCUMENTATION. I cannot stress this enough. I would've given it 4 or 5 stars, but the documentation sucks so bad, it's inexcusable. How can a company continue to sell a device without letting the consumers know how to install it using a modern OS/printer.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you enable LPR Byte counting via windows, otherwise you'll have serious windows spooler problems. Ridiculous spooler problems....The last page won't print, your cpu will max out at 100%, it'll stop printing half-way through a job, etc.
Don't go my route and disable windows spooling, that makes the jobs print incredibly slow and can cause problems when multiple jobs are submitted - Just turn on LPR byte count. It'll fix everything.

1 out of 5 eggsWatch Out: Limited Printer Selection

Pros: The installation is complicated, but at least the instructions for installing for Windows XP are reasonably clear.

Cons: BEWARE: This is a five-year old model, which is not compatible with many new printers, even if they have a USB port. For example, it is not compatible with my Epson Stylus CX4600 and CX4800 printers, or my Epson Stylus Photo R2400. Check the D-Link support page before you buy this, or you will be sorely disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine for me

Pros: I got this for cheap after rebate from a retail store a year or two ago. Works just fine with my Samsung ML-2010. Setup was easy if you understand networking.

Cons: It is not exactly fast, so there will be some pauses between complex pages. (Simple text pages are just fine.) I would not recommend for a photo printer, or other high-bandwidth printer.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Telnet interface for basic config, in addition to a web interface.

Cons: Does not allow printing from different subnets. IOW, if the print server is on a 192.168.20.0/24 netwrok and you are on 192.168.10.0/24, it will not allow you to print to it. DLink tech support claims this is a "feature", but it is not a feature that can be disabled. I consider it to be an obvious bug.

Most DLink print servers I've ever used tend to lock up occasionally, requiring the device to be power-cycled in order for it to work again.

Other Thoughts: This is fine for home use, if you can justify spending $50 on it, but for anything else, try a different brand

4 out of 5 eggsWorks 24/7 for me

Pros: Very small form factor is easy to place almost anywhere. Indicator lights are easy to see from a distance. Set it up and forget it.

Cons: Power supply end connector has a right-angle elbow which sticks out beyond the side of the case in one direction or interferes with the other connection because the connectors are closely spaced. Hey D-Link... loose the elbow on the power cable and just have a straight-in end piece.

Other Thoughts: It has been available 100% of the time, 24 hours a day 7 days a week as a household print server connected to a Canon Bubblejet S400 printer. We just keep filling the printer with paper and occationally change ink cartridges, and ignore the fact we have a print server because it always works. My kids use it for school work, my wife uses it for work, etc. Currently 2 laptops and 6 desktop computers all share the same printer so it is used daily and frequently. The setup is not as simple as plug and play, but that is the nature of networks and making all network devices play well together can be quite difficult, what with wired and wireless devices from laptops and desktop computers to Tivo's, Nintendo Wii's, Nintendo DS's, networkable hard drives, print servers etc. It is a wonder to me that it works at all much less that it works reliably. Follow the instructions, they are fairly clear and concise. If that doesn't work there is always tech support. I didn't need it. Mine works fine.
