Success with Win 8 and HP-6P4/26/2013 10:53:57 AM

Pros: with Win 8, cost less than $10, and took 5 minutes. See below for simple steps

Cons: none

Overall Review: After reading about a lot of attempts by others to use an HP-6P laserjet printer with Windows 7 and 8, and finding most of them discouraging, I want to share my success. I have not yet tried with Win 7. My solution was with Win 8, cost less than $10, and took 5 minutes. Here are the exact steps I took: Turn on HP-6P Using Cables To Go (C2G) 16898 cable (NewEgg Item #: N82E16812196233): 1. plug IEEE-1284 (parallel) end into printer 2. plug USB end into Windows 8 machine (no visible acknowledgement appeared on screen) 3. manually run Windows Update (Windows found HP-6P driver for Win 8, which appeared in description for download) 4. after Win Update completes, in Control Panel check that HP-6P is installed and appears under "Devices and Printers -> Printers 5. Print

Every computer should have a front reader9/7/2012 8:48:44 AM

Pros: - Works well, reads most if not all of memory cards out there - Includes USB 2.0 port - Allows easy access to read cards from the front of your machine - Supplied with black bezel, with white and silver also included

Cons: as mentioned by others, one red LED is always on, and bleeds over to other LED

Overall Review: Why wouldn't everyone building a machine with an extra slot install one of these at this price?

Generally good design with a few flaws8/20/2012 2:04:57 PM

Pros: - Abundance of drive bays, internal and external - comes with 3 quiet fans installed. - Nice strong handle on top. - no sharp edges - front panel easy access for power, eSATA, USBs, audio, mic - good value

Cons: - no air intake filtration - horrid 'manual'. Why did they bother printing it? - no option to plug fans into motherboard for control - front USBs are 2.0 instead of 3.0

Overall Review: - be careful that if PSU is bottom mounted, air sucks from below - do not set case on carpet. - could use a few more internal cable passthru holes - have case manufacturers considered cam-type or other fasteners than cannot separate from the case for closure?
