WORKS WITH WIN 10 HOME 64bit OS - HP LaserJet 6P 6/19/2017 1:02:56 PM

Pros: Driverless installation - just plug in and install *

Cons: None but software setup under Windows should be done in specific manner

Overall Review: Some negative reviews cite that that it doesn't work under the older HP LaserJet series printers. I took the gamble and won using the HP Stream 14 laptop. I do believe the problem for not working with others is improper setup. You should be connected to the internet as I waited for some time for Win10 to connect to Windows Update to find the HP LaserJet 6P driver (the driver database is quite large to download and refresh). The method of install was to enable the Parallel Port of the printer to point to the right USB0 or USB1 port. One way is to just let Windows partially install the USB cable adapter driver and go to device manager. Look for the LaserJet Printer icon that shows up as other device after doing a full scan - update it's driver via Windows Update. After that the printer should come up under the Printer and Device section in Control Panel. Did test print and I was jumping for joy. I'm quite certain this would work for older LaserJet 5P printers too.

Eventually this USB - Parallel port adapter will be in long term use when docking stations no longer support parallel port. In fact newer drop dock stations and silly USB-C docks don't have a parallel port.

Works with Windows 10 and old HP LJ4000 9/30/2016 11:22:28 AM

Pros: Hardest part of the installation was opening the plastic packaging. Just plugged it into the computer, then connected it to the printer. Windows10 automatically recognized the printer on a USB virtual port. All I had to do was select the printer as the default and it was ready to use.

Cons: none

Sabrent Parallel to USB Cable 9/16/2015 2:48:25 AM

Pros: Works great with Windows 8 and my HP Laserjet 6L, however, I had to perform the following steps first:
1. Control Panel - Devices and Printers
2. Click on "Add a Printer"
3. Click on "The printer that I want isn't listed"
4. For USB connection, choose "Add a local printer or network printer with manual settings"
5. Pick an existing port. I use a cable that has LPT port at one end, USB at the other end. So my choice is USB001 (Virtual printer port for USB)
6. Now you see the list of manufacturers and models. Before doing anything, click on "Windows Update" and let it run (takes a few minutes)
7. Once the update is complete and you're back to the list of manufacturers and models, select HP as the model, and select HP LaserJet 6L as the printer. Without Windows Update, it will only show "HP LaserJet 6L PS Class Driver", which causes the problem. Stick to "HP LaserJet 6L"
8. The rest is straight forward. Print a test page and check if it comes out right. Good luck!!

Cons: None!

Pros: None

Cons: Did not work for me. There is a very short list of compatible printers you can get from support@sabrent.com. HP laserjet 5 is not on the list and they don't provide support if your printer is not on the list.

Overall Review: Don't buy if you don't have a printer on the short list.

Pros: Quality looks fine - well built.

Cons: Not for 26-pin printer cables.

Overall Review: Didn't realize there are different types of parallel port cables. Count your pins and look closely at the photos of this item to make sure it will match with what you have.
