    Hi, I would like to ask what cable do you use to connect the PC via USB port? Is it included in the printer box? Thank you!

    • Hello Rui,
      If you mean by making the printer a stand alone printer and connecting it through the back panel then it is a typical 2.0 USB cable. YOu can not connect a USB cable from the front USB slot. You can only insert a USB flash drive from there.
      On your second question, Yes, it is included in the box.

      You get all these items in the box:
      - 2 x Flanges
      - 2 x Spacers
      - USB Cable
      - CD With Printer Drivers and Electronic Manual
      - AC Power Cord
      - User Manual
      - 1-Year Manufacturer’s Warranty and Notice Sheet
