According to common sense every printer that has drivers for OS/2 should work on the USB port, but you will have to follow some instruction to make it so, and get a driver. For these instructions, please refer to the Tips & Articles page of this section.

CommentsHeiko Nitzsche told us this device works with under eComStation 1.1, FP4 with the following Drivers:
- IBM USB Base Drivers 10.145
- IBM USB Printer Driver 10.145
- IBM Parallel Printer Driver (print01.sys) 10.70

Chipset: VIA K8T800 (Southbridge VIA 8237)
PM Printer Driver: IBM Laserjet 30.822, Brother HL-5040

Works fine with both, parallel and USB connection. The printer supports PCL6 but I use always PCL5 level which makes printing much faster because the spool file is much smaller. (PCL6 can be disabled on the job properties page)

Even though the PM driver configuration page complains about a non-existing Bidi-Connection (only for parallel ???) everything works fine.

The resolution when using PCL5/6 is limited to 600x600dpi while under Windows with GDI up to 2400x600dpi is possible.

Under WinOS/2 I installed the Brother Windows 3.1 driver for the Brother HL-1250 and redirected it to the OS/2 USB port. Works fine so far but I don't use WinOS/2 much.

CommentsThis device works fine when you configure it as an HP LaserJet III (though only 300*300 resolution). You can also configure it with LaserJet 4 to achieve higher resolutions. USB and LPT connections work fine with OS/2.
MS Works 3.0 (DOS sessioned) can only deal with it via LPT, and works fine.

CommentsDavid T. Johnson have been using a Canon i850 printer for several months with OS/2 and it works very well except for one problem. The desktop will lock up if you turn the printer power on after OS/2 has booted. Otherwise, the printer works very well. The Canon i850 is extremely quiet, very fast, and is very economical with its ink usage. The Windows 3.1 driver for the Canon BJC-8500 will work with the Canon i850 to provide Win-OS2 printing and also enables the use of the Canon i850 hi-resolution photo quality capabalities in OS/2. The only caveat is that the Win-OS2 driver settings must be set at "Auto" print mode, "auto" half toning, and the print quality slider bar must be set at one notch below the 'fine' setting for the driver to provide high-resolution printing with the Canon i850. The Canon i850 comes with both a USB port and a parallel port and either will work in OS/2. It is even possible to print to the Canon i850 from Win-OS2 when it is connected to the USB port if you 'connect' it to a virtual LPTx.OS2 port and then 'redirect' that LPTx.OS2 port to the appropriate USB port in OS/2.

CommentsDoug Bissett told us that this printer works very well, with the OMNI driver for the Canon i950 printer. Using eCs 1.1 with fix 4 and the last USB drivers.

The Canon i960 printer works very well, using the OMNI printer driver for the Canon i950 printer. He suspect that it may not support every possible feature, but normal, and photo, printing is excellent. The printer has two USB connectors on it. One for USB 2.0 "Full Speed", which works great, with USB 2.0 (OHCI/EHCI), and USB 1.1 (UHCI). The other is for USB 2.0 "High Speed", and that doesn't work. There is also a connector where you can plug a compatible camera into it, and print directly from the camera (that doesn't work with my HP Photosmart 935 camera). The automatic power control works. He had set the printer to power off after 10 minutes of inactivity, and it powers back on, by itself, when a print job is sent to it. He is using the very recent IBM USB drivers with it, with no troubles.

CommentsLouis Muollo told us this printer works fine with OS/2 Warp 4 with Fixpack 12 using the Canon i950 Omni driver. Works well in OS/2 and eCS 1.2. WinOS2 printing works with redirect pointing LTP2 at USB. Makes good color labels, excellent text printing. Maintenance available-nozzle test,print head cleaning, auto on-off power control, quiet mode. Photo quality unusable, envelope printing a problem. Top paper feed and tray feed available. Overall a great printer for $100.00 if photo printing through OS/2 not a must. Has direct camera input.

CommentsAccording to Olafur Gunnlaugsson the Epson Stylus Color 680 works fine with the EPOMNI5 driver and using the lastest USB IBM drivers. All functions are OK but the well known bug with all of the Epson drivers and older app is present and slightly annoying if you use IBM Works a lot but who does these days, and since the C84 uses RET it repots a much lower resolution in eCS than in Windows put prints an identical picture (tested using PMView for OS/2 and windows).

CommentsPeter Piper reports this printer woks fine under OS/2. IBM's USB print driver needs to be installed. Before final processing of config.sys, *if* the printer is turned on, the system will beep, detecting the presence of the USB printer. USB 2.0 MFP is detected as the device name, and my ASUS KXT-133 mobo detects the same USB storage driver: USB 2.0 MFP at post (during boot).

The USB print driver configuration is a pain to setup, especially in WSeB as I have to go through PSF/2 and create a queue, etc... so I don't know about Warp 4 or eCS.

It has a memory card reader for all formats. Below is my config.sys on the USB Drivers. If I have removables less than 9, it won't work.
