(5 stars) Good card plus continued support

By:
Bought this just under two years ago to keep my beloved HP LaserJet 5 going. I fitted it myself (and I'm not famously good at hardware!) and it's been absolutely fine. I've just had to reinstall Win7 from scratch, and the OS didn't install the driver for the card, but it took me less than two minutes to find this page, download the driver and install it. Excellent.

Barry, Customer Support
Hello, Thanks for your review. We wanted to offer some clarification and assistance. The product, PEX1P, is not a discontinued product. Do you by chance have a different product? As for installing the drivers, here are some helpful installation guides. Windows Vista through 10: https://www.startech.com/faq/oxford_parallel_install_windows_v7810#PEX1P Windows XP: https://www.startech.com/faq/oxford_parallel_install_windows_xp#PEX1P Hopefully, that helps, but please get in touch if you still require assistance. Thank you.
