5 out of 5 eggsWorks flawlessly.

Pros: Awesome. Creates a virtual USB connection to the device itself which eliminates 99% of the problems that print servers typically have with compatibility. Also, the software is a pretty small install compared to may others I've seen (the Linksys print servers to be specific). Got this working with a HP Laserjet P1006 which was said to not be compatible with anything. Also have another one on an HP Photosmart 7150 and a Dell 1720.

Cons: None. Love this thing.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great but took some fiddling

Pros: Once I got it working, I was able to scan from my Canon MP780 and print to the Canon and my HP Laserjet 1200.
Has worked solidly since I got it setup.
Definitely worth the cost so far. The manufacturer's printer compatibility list is the most clear and complete I've seen.

Cons: Windows (XP & Vista) could not see the Trendnet, even with the latest firmware (2.50). (It may be because I gave it a static IP.)
Had to install as "local" printer on a created TCP port, then select LPR and USB1_LQ or USB2_LQ. That was the last thing I tried. If you haven't done this before in windows, it's tricky. Search microsoft online for adding printer with a local port.

Other Thoughts: Seemed to be the best price point for a home setup like mine that includes an all-in-1. I'm happy with it now.
With a lot of prior XP knowledge and the printer documentation I was able to get it working as advertised.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks, But Misleading

Pros: Compact, inexpensive and theoretically useful device with two USB ports supporting a variety of functions. SOund too good to be true?

Cons: It is.

Does not work with a wide number of consumer printers, like Canon and Samsung printers, some HP. If it works or not is a complete potshot. No information is available on TrendNet's site. The Knowledgebase is laughable marketing, such as the "Are TRENDnet Multi-Function Print Servers difficult to install?" document.

That's what I get for not looking before I leap.

Other Thoughts: Ironically, TrendNet's tagline is "Networks People Trust". They may want to reconsider...

3 out of 5 eggsSorta Works

Pros: I've got both of my wireless computers printing to it successfully using basic IP connections... not using the control center software.

Cons: I was hoping to get my scanner working. But was only successful doing that with the control center software. However, when I use the software, I lose the ability to print from my Vista computer... the XP machine was OK. I'm still working the problem with their tech support.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: The device functions as advertised. The directions are easy to follow, and once the device is configured, you do not need to install the server manager on other machines to get them to use the printer or network drive as some have believed. For printers, you just create a new local port and point it to the devices IP address, and for network storage, you just enable FTP. Works flawlessly so far.

For the second USB port I have WD 1TB drive hooked up. I have found that in general is is faster to FTP to that drive by enabling FTP in the device management software as opposed to using your OS to browse out to it by mapping the drive. I have been very happy over all and while FTP'ing files up to it, have averaged about 1.6MB/s write times.

Cons: The web interface for the device, while appearing to have the same functionality as the installable software, isn't very well laid out, and sometimes when you tell it to reset the device via the web interface it ignores you. Not a big enough deal though for me to knock off a star as the installable software works well enough for initial setup.

Other Thoughts: Device performs as stated. It uses DHCP just fine, though I have reserved the IP address it uses for it in my router. It would be nice if the network interface supported gigabit speeds as my internal network is all gigabit and CAT6, but as I said above, write times are speedy, and printing is instantaneous. All in all I would definitely buy again, and is much more energy efficient than leaving a computer on to share a printer on the network.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: This print server works great! I simply went to their website and downloaded the most up-to-date driver and firmware as some have suggested. I have this hooked up to a printer and a hard drive. I have a laptop with XP and another with Vista and they both workout with any issues.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this print server and I like that it has two usb ports.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Setup was easy and wife started printing. Great support from Newegg, Bravo Zulu

Cons: After about a month it stopped working

Other Thoughts: Would have been nice if all connections were on one end, to keep all cables neatly tucked away.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works Great, after uploading Firmware. Shipped to me in 24hrs.

Cons: The TE100-MP2U is somewhat difficult to setup. You have to install the printer as local printer first, then connect the printer to the print server. This can be difficult if you have a big color printer that you have to lug into a server closet. Then the print server keeps vanishing before you can hit configure. You then have to unplug the USB printer cord and the power cord. Then plug them both back in. The Print server then will appear again for a few seconds before it goes away again. Sometimes pressing the “Server Refresh” button worked for me. However, once I got into the configuration I had the option to upload new firmware. Once I downloaded the firmware from “www.trendnet.com/downloads” and uploaded it to the print server, it worked GREAT!

Other Thoughts: Another con is you are supposed to install the print server software on every computer and install the printer as a local printer on every computer by connecting it. I went around this by simply sharing my printer over the network using Windows printer sharing feature. This allowed me to easily connect the 15 PCs to the printer and print with no problems. It has been working great for about 24hrs now.

Tech support from Inndia is somewhat helpful. After about an hour they told me to ship it back to Newegg for a replacement. However I got it working soon after hanging up the phone. From doing the steps above in the "Cons" section
