Hi all. I'm going to buy an ASUS M2N-E Socket AM2 motherboard, but it hasn't LPT port. Does anyone use this port nowadays? And what hardware could to plug to this port?

Its commonly used by older printers and a few scanners. I don't think any new hardware uses these anymore. I've not had a parallel port in my rig in many years.

Mostly legacy hardware, serial and parallel have been replaced by USB.

Jakup loves that port. :Dlol

I'm sure his second favorite would be the much beloved serial port(s). :D

I still use serial - for the APC UPS I got from work for free.
