1 out of 5 eggs straps not documented but need ECP 11/27/2012

This review is from: SYBA PCI-Express 2-Port Serial and 1-Port Parallel Combo Card - RoHS Model SD-PEX50030

Pros: This board would probably work in systems older than the one I just purchased.
It was easy to install.
It would probably work for most applications.

Cons: The latest desktop does not have any bios support to configure the parallel port for ECP mode (or any mode). Other manufacturers of parallel port cards have responded by moving the straps to the actual card. This card has straps marked on the board, but they are not documented. I will seek the answer to this issue, but may have to return for a more recent or bettor documented board.

Other Thoughts: wish I knew what the straps on the board do. A flier could be added to the box to document it? Or is it protected info?
