    Nor Ready For Prime Time

    I was on the list waiting to get one of these several months ago when they first came out. I bought it directly from Lantronix. One of my printers a Canon MP640 was on their approved list, but printing to that printer was painfully slow and many times graphics wouldn't print correctly from my iPad. One day it stopped working completely, so I called Lantronix tech support and the guy they decided to "pull the Canon drivers out", so they would no longer work. They finally offered me a refund. Check the Lantronix site to see if your printer is on the approved list, you have no shot if it isn't. If it is, you have a 50-50 shot, in my opinion. I think this will be a great product once they get the bugs out. It looks like it may be awhile though.

    Works Exactly as Advertised!

    This product works extremely well! I love it and my family thinks it is great, too. We have an older printer that was on the supported list and it works very well. Even if we didn't have iOS devices, this would be an easy, cost-effective way to wirelessly print with an OS X computer. I got it at a great price several months ago as a Deal of the Day, so that made it even better. It is also very easy to reset if your Internet service goes out. Once your router is working, all you do is unplug the power adapter from the back of the xPrintServer, wait 10-15 sec, then plug it back in. The server automatically resets after 30-60 sec and is good to go. Of course, it is fantastic for printing from iOS devices, too. Much better than having to buy a new printer.

    I eagerly purchased and installed. Install was simple and quick by the way. Directions are short, clearly written with illustrations. Five stars for that. iOS devices didn't print. Uninstalled and reinstalled five times. Called two "tech" sons they each tried and at one point the mini iPad printed a page at a painfully SLOW rate and then not all was printed. After my failed attempts, my two sons failed attempts I phoned tech support and was told sometimes it takes five minutes and sometimes hours to get this running. By the way another five star for tech support. Gave up after nearly one hour with tech. Sadly returned the device.

    After I went to the product website to confirm this supported our printer I bought the home addition and couldn't be more pleased. Super easy install, literally plugged it in and it worked! We have iPhones and iPod's and now we can print from all of them with no issues. No setup was required on any of our iPhone's or iPod's at all. This is the first hardware install that wasn't a daunting project. Easy breezy and does what it is designed to do. I have confidently recommended this product to all of my friends and family.

    I bought this to enable easy printing from iPhone and iPad devices from my home network. It works perfectly. I am using a slightly older printer that wasnt on their supported printer list. So I was able to easily configure it manually with a quick call to Lantronix tech support. The support guy was very helpful, and we had it running in less than 5 minutes. The device just works. So far so good.

    Received the xPrintServer Home Edition as a gift and love it! Simply connected it to my Ethernet network, it found my 2 wireless (non-AirPrint) printers and I was printing from my iPad. Did have to call tech support about printing speed and within minutes was talking to a US based live person who walked me through a driver change and verified I was good to go before we terminated the call.

    It works with any USB controlled printer. A lot cheaper than having to buy a special printer. Will basically print anything from the iPad iPhone, not just web pages for instance. Very easy to instal, using a Windows PC requires a download & install to allow PC to print. Don't even need a PC to print from iPad.

    No a plug and play as advertise. You need to know computer to may be Used. Don't ever think of call tech support. They are there just for being There only, so don't wait your time and money to send back and deal with The return refund.

    Plugged the xPrintServer into my router. It scanned network and configured two network HP6800 printers (one wired, one wireless). Can now print to either printer from iPhones and iPad. All done with no user intervention.

    Easy set up. I had to set it up using a second router because there are known compatibility problems with Verizon Actiontec routers. Would recommend as long as the price paid was low enough to not justify buying an AirPrint printer.

    Works great and sets up easy. The only problem I have had, was trying to print from my HP inkjet that is on my network. Brother laser printer hooked right up and works fine so I have not worried about getting the HP working.

    Did not want to by another printer just for my IOS devices. The xprint server works with 100's of printers. Would reccomend this unit to everyone!
