Many new PCs, especially portables, do not have parallel ports, which many consider to be old technology and no longer useful. But if you have an older printer, especially a laser printer which has a long life, the only way to connect it may be via its parallel port. This Adapter Cable interfaces the parallel cable from the printer to a USB port on your PC. It works flawlessly; just plug it in and go!
One helpful hint: Like any other printer, the old printer will have to be installed in Windows (or whatever OS your PC uses). Be aware that from the PC's point of view the printer is connected via a USB port, not a parallel port, when specifying how the printer is connected when configuring the installation.
