Summary: Works exactly as expected. I use four PCs on my workstation, but I have room for only two keyboards and trackballs; so I purchased two of these KVM switches, then connected two PCs to one, and two PCs to the other.
Summary: I purchased two of these to swap two of my monitors and my Keyboard and mouse between my work and personal computer (I know there are single devices which will do this, but this option is less expensive).
Pros: Device had long cords, the led indicators are easy to see and identify, buttons are on wires so they can be moved from the device.
Cons: Would be useful if the usb cables were labeled. The device does not work with ALL usb devices.
Summary: A very good KVM switch, with a couple of very minor issues 1) The usb connections on the hub for the mouse and keyboard are reversed. 2) Some significant lag time on the mouse when switching from one computer to the other.
Summary: This is my third KVM switch, and definitely the best for switching between Mac and Windows machines. I use a ThinkPad and a Mac Pro tower that share a second monitor and the Mac keyboard. The first switch I tried would not work with the Mac keyboard at all.
Summary: Great KVM switch for the money. I especially love the integral cables and the little switch that I have stuck to the bottom of my desk for quick switching. As others mention it does take a little while to switch back and forth, but I switch between my work laptop on a dock station and my home...
Excerpt: I have 2 older HP computers with windows XP on them. I wanted the get a newer one with windows 8 but I had no room on desk in my office for a third computer. So I was checking out to see if there was anyway possible to hook up 2 towers to one monitor, so that I could still use my older computers.
Summary: I was happily surprised to find this just as easy to connect and EASIER to use, and just as reliable as the older versions I've used. I had to update to match hardware and was concerned about quality as it often seems to get poorer as time goes by. Not with this.
Summary: The switch is so easy to install with the enclosed directions. I was able to hook it up in a matter of minutes. Cables are long enough to make it easy to reach my two computers for the hookup. Only draw back is that there is some hesitation time (several seconds) when I switch between the computers.
Summary: Tried to file an RMA for this item, but the return shipping costs more than the part itself.
Pros: Very easy setup
Cons: Doesn't work. When switching PCs, screen resolution can get lost and cannot be restored (to external monitor). The mouse on the PC that is not currently "active" can get lost offscreen...as though it still thinks it is connected to the external monitor
