Netgear PS121 Mini Print Server

Share a Home or Office Printer Without Sharing Your PC
Multi-user access to your printer is now simpler than ever. NETGEAR's USB Mini Print Server does away with the hassles of sharing your printer among multiple PCs. Its easy external USB connection links one USB printer to as many as three PCs, so different network users can run multiple print jobs at the same time from anywhere on a home or office network. The attractive case design looks great in any environment, and its compact size allows you to place it close at hand or out of the way to open up your work area. Easy setup with NETGEAR's Smart Wizard install assistant saves you time and effort so you're up and running in minutes. Since no parallel printer cable is needed, it saves you money, too.

Lets you share a printer among multiple PCs. You can place your printer right where you want it for most convenience. It works with wired or wireless routers from any vendor, and it's compatible with most USB port printers (including bi-directional printers) from HP®, Canon®, Epson®, Lexmark®, and others. Supports all major Microsoft® Windows® operating systems.

Time Saving
Removes the performance bottleneck you'd have with a dedicated, always-on PC acting as the print server. It supports multiple print jobs simultaneously, gives you a speedy 12 Mbps USB connection, and is equipped with an on-board memory buffer for quicker printout delivery.

Easy to Use
The external USB interface makes connecting a no-brainer. Smart Wizard install assistant makes it simple to install on all popular versions of Microsoft Windows. You can manage the print server remotely with an easy, Web browser interface. Then you can share a printer on your LAN without sharing your computer.

Cost Effective
Saves you the price of an expensive parallel printer cable – the USB Mini Print Server doesn't need one.
