If you’re like me one of the biggest complaints about the iPad is the lack of printing ability. Sure there a a few select printers which support AirPrint as well as a couple of software workarounds but for the most part, printing directly from an iPad is a royal pain.
The folks at Lantronix have been listening to disgruntled iPad users and invented a little magic white box called the Lantronix xPrintServer … a wireless printing solution that allows iOS device printing to almost any networked printer.
Set up of the xPrintServer is simple and easy just plug the xPrintServer into your network and instantly you’re ready to print from iOS devices. There’s no complicated software to run, no elaborate configuration, an no Host PC or Mac that needs to be connected to the printer, xPrintServer works directly with any ethernet connected printer, just plug n play and Presto like Magic you’re printing directly to your network printer from your iPad!
The Lantronix xPrintServer supports more than 4,000 network printers from HP, Brother, Epson, Canon, Dell, Lexmark and Xerox. XprintServer works with iPhone, iPod and iPad devices.
At $152 CDN the Lantronix xPrintServer is not cheap but when you consider the ability to quickly, easily and reliably print from any iOS device to thousands of network printers the xPrintServer’s value is clear.
We recommend the Lantronix xPrintServer hands down for both residential and business clients who require iOS Device network printing.
