Perfect!

Pros: Value for Money, Features, Easy to Use, Design, Performance
I was disappointed to learn that our new Windows 7 computer did not have a parallel port for connecting my faithful HP LaserJet 5L. This 25 pin Parallel to USB Printer Adapter Cable was perfect. The computer had no trouble finding and installing the printer.

Cable good, but printer not compatible w/Vista

Pros: works just like you'd expect it to
Cons: printer just too old
The cable is fine, and made the connection from my old printer to my newer computer. At which point I discovered there is no driver for this printer for Windows Vista. I was only focused on hooking up the printer, and it never occurred to me that the printer itself was too old for my operating system to deal with. So before you purchase this cable, make sure that your computer can talk to the printer. And if any techie can tell me how to get an HP OfficeJet T65xi to interface with Vista, I'd be so grateful! I can't find anything online.

Would definitely recommend

Pros: Easy to Use, Performance, Value for Money, Quiet
I am not a tech person at all. I purchased this adaptor to use on an old HP printer to link it to my new HP Vista. It works beautifully and I love it!

Easy and Economical

Pros: Easy to Use, Value for Money, Design
I was ready for problems when I hooked up my old parallel printer cable with this new adapter, but I couldn't believe how easy it was. The minute I plugged it into my USB port it automatically installed by old HP printer without any problem. Package says it has an installation CD, but none came with mine.... didn't need it. I highly recommend.

Good Experience

Pros: Easy to Use, Value for Money
I had looked for a cable that would work on my new computer, and it was either not available, or too expensive. I tried Office Depot, and found exactly what I needed at a great price! The cable was delivered to me very quickly, and I would certainly consider Office Depot for future needs.
