They are easy to setup, but force you to run a wizard rather than just get to the setting you want.
I recently purchased and returned a Buffalo print server, so I'll begin this review with a short comparison. The Buffalo had only a small documentation insert, maybe 10 palm sized pages. The StarTech server includes a quick start guide of the same length, but also on their install CD is a 146 page document with detailed user instructions. The Buffalo instructions are either consistently wrong and/or misleading while the StarTech instructions are clear and accurate. The StarTech user manual was written by a non-native American English speaker, but the occasional inelegant phrasing is a small price to pay for the information. The StarTech install CD works and all links to documentation and software work--the Buffalo CD does not work as documented and links to the documentation are broken. The most important difference for me is that on the Buffalo print server a 16 page 11MB file caused the server to fail and print only the first 2 pages with either blanks or garbage filed pages following. The same document prints perfectly through the StarTech unit.
Both units have web-base administration options, but the StarTech is more cleanly designed and offers many more features. The StarTech manual includes instructions on firmware upgrades, which I have not yet tried. The Buffalo print server instructions and web site offer nothing in the way of firmware upgrades.
I have owned the StarTech unit for only 24 hours, so there may be updates to this review should anything important develop in the future.Read more ›
ask for the password and connected. The Great Feature is that the server also has AirPrint ( a Apple Feature) that iPad, iPod uses. Thus
this Server turns a Non Wifi Printer to a Wireless WiFi Printer. Now I may print from any device Wirelessly Not having to connect to the printer.
I strongly recommend this Printer Server to anyone that wants to convert a Non Wifi Printer to a Wifi Wireless Printer.!
Cons: Windows only, custom software to get started, and very, very slow to print.
I have a Windows 10 desktop that's on a wired network, then an 8 year old Epson professional photo printer with a flaky network card on another floor. The basic instructions for setting this thing up say to do the following...
1) Turn on your printer, connect it to the print server, plug the print server into the power, and wait 40 seconds for it to boot.
2) Connect your Windows computer to a wifi access point that the print server provides
3) Run the Windows installer that comes on a CD to configure the print server.
4) Run the "add printers" control panel to add the printer.
If I could have done any of this it would have been easy. It installs any printers it finds as local printers on your Windows machine. But I couldn't because the Windows machine doesn't have wifi, and the printer isn't right next to it. So, I managed to do this:
1) Crawl under my desk, unplug my Windows desktop from the wired network, and plug it directly into the print server.
2) Run the installation software, up to the point where I connect it to my home wifi and change the IP address.
3) Unplug the print server, reconnect my Windows desktop to the network.
4) Plug the printer into the print server, and plug the print server in next to the printer.
5) Install the printer as a network printer. I have been playing with this printer for awhile, so this was easy for me, but might not be intuitive for someone who doesn't work with this stuff all the time.Read more ›
