Rosewill RC-304 - 2-Port Parallel (SPP / PS2 / EPP / ECP) Universal PCI Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Adendum to my eariler review 03/23/2015

This review is from: Rosewill RC-304 - 2-Port Parallel (SPP / PS2 / EPP / ECP) Universal PCI Card

Pros: Great add on LPT card

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: I figured out how to change the LPT designation to LPT1.
It was a lot easier than all the googling and reading stuff that didn't work. Why people in the forums take 30 minutes finding links to post rather than taking 5 minutes or less to answer a question. This turned out to be easy as pie. Use device manager to disable LPT1, then change LPT3 to LPT1. Viola. Working fine now. You may have to re-install your printer driver to recognize this change.

4 out of 5 eggs Rosewill RC-304 Printer Port Card 03/22/2015

This review is from: Rosewill RC-304 - 2-Port Parallel (SPP / PS2 / EPP / ECP) Universal PCI Card

Pros: Finally got around to installing this card.
Works great on LPT3.

Cons: This card works great on LPT3.
Can't get it swapped to LPT1.

Other Thoughts: I needed a LPT port on the back plate. The cable supplied with the MB would not reach the back plate when plugged into the MB printer header.

Problem is, I have a software program that looks for my dongle on LPT1. Plugging the dongle into the supplied cable lying inside the case doesn't work because software program will only print to LPT1. I haven't as yet been able to switch this card from LPT3 to LPT1. Can't find anything in the Bios or on the card that allows port changing.

Googling it is no help. Everything I find leads me to the same spot in device manager wherein I don't have the option the directions tell me to select. Running windows 7 ultimate.

I only gave it 4 eggs because of this problem.

Mediasonic HP1-SU3 USB 3.0 2 Port External USB 3.0 PCI Express Card - LINUX Software RAID supported
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: So far so good!!!!

Cons: None as yet thou card has only been installed less than a week.

Other Thoughts: This was my first experience with a PCIe add-on card. This card has lain around for just over a year before I actually installed it in my machine and like most men, I didn't read the instructions first. After fussing with the card and driver for a couple of days I finally did read the guide. I had become frustrated that I repeatedly was getting a USB power bus error. I had to be missing something. I plugged in the SATA power connector and VIOLA. The card works better than my expectations. Allows me to transfer files to my external network backup drive in a flash.
