Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnW1 The PCIe worked perfectly and was straight forward to fit.
I installed the StarTech.com 1 Port PCI Express DB-25 Parallel 25 pin Adapter Card so that I could run an old printer. I had tried using a USB to parallel lead but this proved unreliable. The PCIe worked perfectly and was straight forward to fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JP55 Works with Windows 7 and an old laser printer
I bought an old HP Laserjet printer and wanted to run it on my pc which has Windows 7 Ultimate and no parallel port on the motherboard. I tried a USB to centronics cable (also from Scan) but found that, although it recognised the printer was there, it just wouldn't print for some reason. I tried everything I could think of but couldn't get it to work...
In the end I bought this PCI Express Parallel card and a parallel to centronics cable and it worked first time.
If you've got an old laser printer and want to run it on a pc with no parallel port on the motherboard, I reckon this will do it for you.
