Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 31 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 15 October 2013
