Doesn't work well at all!

  • Summary: I'd hoped some of the negative reviews were unique to uniquely-challenged Mac users, but even used with Win7 workstations (with Quadro graphics cards) this device isn't reliable, can't handle the monitor's being put to sleep, and makes the computer it's switching away from think there's no monitor...
  • Pros: Sometimes works for switching between two computers.
  • Cons: Sometimes doesn't. Can't handle monitor falling into sleep mode on away machine. 'Away' machine sees monitor as disconnected so resolution changes. Every switch is a PnP add/remove event even without using the USB hub functionality.
