Keyspan 4 -Port Print Server breaks the $100 price barrier.

Takes the mystery out of networked inkjet and photo printers


Richmond, CA - June 27, 2005 - -

Keyspan, the leader in USB connectivity*, announced its new 4 -Port Print Server that makes it easy to turn a USB printer into a network printer. Priced at $99, the print server provides four USB 2.0 full speed ports for connecting to printers from Brother, Canon, Epson, HP, Lexmark, and other leading vendors.


Unlike other low -cost print servers, the Keyspan 4 -Port Printer Server provides bi -directional communication with connected printers. It not only transmits print jobs to the printer - - it also delivers printer status information (i.e. ink and paper levels) back to the PC.

For use with USB laser, inkjet, photo, and label printers as well as plotters, the Keyspan 4 -Port Print Server lets you print from a PC or Mac on an Ethernet or Wi -Fi network. It supports static IP, DHCP, and Apple's Rendezvous. Client PCs must be running Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Mac OS X 10.3 or later.

"Until now, users have had to choose between an inexpensive print server that could not report ink and paper levels and an expensive print server that was bi -directional," note Mike Ridenhour, president of Keyspan. "The Keyspan 4 -Port Print Server delivers the convenience of a bi -directional print server at a new affordable price."
