    Parallel Ports

    It's been about five years since I bought a printer. Do they still use parallel ports or are they all USB now? This one doesn't appear to have a parallel port connection:

    A lot of them still tend to have parallel ports as well. There are some however that just use USB.

    Well, some printers have got parallel and usb. Some only have a parallel port or an USB port. Some even have both + a network connection (RJ45 or AAUI). It really depends on the manufacturer and the kind of printer it is - most inkjets are USB today, most lasers (> SOHO-size) are usually parallel and/or network-enabled...
