Parallel printer ports have disappeared from most modern desk top computers and virtually all new notebook computers. This is not a problem if you have a USB printer, but many people still want to use their parallel printer or other parallel port devices such as ZIP drives or external CD-ROMs etc. This handy device replicates the old 25 pin printer socket and lets you use your legacy devices just like you would with a normal printer port. The USB interface provides up to 12Mbps data throughput, so printing is significantly faster compared with standard a parallel port (150kbps) connection.
