Mostly works, but not flawless and seems to fail over time

Summary: It has been working for me, mostly, for the last 2 years. I had to disconnect my audio from it though since it always leaves a slight buzzing/clicking sound. So I've only been able to use it for keyboard/mouse/monitor switching which has worked pretty well.

Summary: It's quirky. When it works it's great. Upon first connection it is a bit of a challenge to get it working right. I can't even explain what exactly it does, because it is a little different each time. After a bit of fiddling around it works.
older monitors don't seem to wake up as quickly or as easily. So

Summary: READ THE REVIEWS BEFORE YOU BUY THIS! I did and was prepared for the odd sorts of things that one should expect with trying to switch USB keyboard and mouse, and 2 HD digital monitors. My actual setup has 4 monitors, but 2 are switched between my server and my laptop.
Summary: This is one of those rare purchases that leads one to actually think less of themselves. I bought this because I had two DVI monitors, and a laptop and desktop between which I needed to switch. For that set-up, there weren't a lot of options, and most were pretty pricey. Except for this one.
Summary: I was looking for something that would help me avoid working with multiple keyboards and mice on my desk. While pricey - this performs better than advertised. While it required me purchasing some additional wires (full disclosure: I love buying wires), once wired up, it works like a dream.
Summary: I am incredibly impressed at how someone took something that should be a simple as a mechanical switch that alternates between one set of pins to another set, and still managed to screw it up.
Pros: - Easy to use - Has lights - Easy to figure out where to plug things - Easier than having to plug cables back and forth whenever I want to use a separate machine
Cons: - Unreliable - Sometimes one of the DVI ports stops working for a month - Can get into state where you have to completely unplug it for a while - Set-up Process is a pain in the buttocks
