Replacing Obsolete Printers

The current Dell OptiPlex 7010 PC configuration that we are going with does not include a parallel port.   If you are replacing a PC that has a parallel cable-connected printer, you will no longer be able to use that printer.  Another problem with these older paralell printers is that they often do not have Windows 20130315_1548217 compatible print drivers.  The Epson TM-u200 receipt printers are one example. 

If you are replacing a PC that uses a parallel connected printer, you have a few options.  You can order a new printer that connects to the PC by USB cable.  You can also print to a network-attached printer or a shared printer if you have one.

Thanks for this post. I've been looking for a printer because mine is super unresponsive.
