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.”
