printer and cables

  jospar 16:59 08 Aug 2003

I am now running two printers from my computer. My older all-in-one Lexmark x73, which is a usb 1.1 connection, and I've just brought a epson photo 900 printer which gives me the choice of usb or parallel cable.

My question is if I use parallel cable for connection on the Epson will this have a effect on my printing speed? or is it better to purchase another usb cable?

Get another USB cable - only £2 and much faster.

Jester where do you get a £2 usb cable from, around here they about £9 for 1.1 and the 2's are between £15 and £20 quid?

The last USB cables I purchased some time ago from Micro Direct (from their Manchester shop) and they were around £4-50 each. In various colours I might add. Yet this week in our local Poundland store they have USB cables 2M length (made in China) Only £1 as is all the other stuff they sell.
