Probably works fine . . . 8/19/2020 1:40:35 PM

Pros: Good price

Cons: Limitations in what can be done via USB to Parallel Port

Overall Review: I bought this cable to see if I could connect an old ZipDrive to my PC.
Didn't work -but that's not the cable's fault.

Since I don't have any other devices to use with this cable, that's the best I can say about it.

StarTech 6 ft USB to DB25 Parallel Printer Adapter Cable - M/F 2/4/2020 8:59:49 AM

Pros: Works as intended for an old, special purpose printer.

Cons: Wish they would make one with a DB25 MALE connector with thumbscrews, since the printer has a female connector. As it is, I have to use a m/m cable along with the adapter cable.

Overall Review: Works as intended for an old, special purpose printer. No drivers needed. My only complaint is the female connector should be a male (see above)
