Pros: Excellent tool to connect one computer to two parallel-port printers. No fuss, no muss. Great price, too. I love the easy A/B buttons in front to switch back and forth between printers, which I do constantly.

Cons: The only reason I don't give this A/B switch 5 stars is because they placed the I/O connection in the front. That makes it rather cumbersome to connect a parallel cable there and then wrap it around the back of the box and off the back of the computer table, out of sight. The boxes that have the I/O switch in the back, along with the A and B switches, are better designed. But it's really not that big of a deal.

Question:

I have a HP Laserjet 1100 printer and a Fargo Persona C16 badge printer that both need the 25 pin port on the back of my computer. Will this device work for me, so I won't have to keep going under my desk and switching the cables when I need to use either printer?


Answer:

Yes, this item will allow you to simply switch between each device. It will just change which device is communicating with the 25-pin parallel port at any given time.
