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

M. Prentice, Amazon
1 April 2016
  • 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.

Not very well made, especially for the price.

  • Summary: Have to constantly reboot it, and no easy way to do that. Rebooting requires pulling the power and both USB cables going to the PCs. bumping it causes the screens to flash and crackle.

  • 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

Xenphibian, Amazon
24 January 2016
  • 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.

Developed problems early, then went downhill

Dan Ziemecki, Amazon
22 January 2016
  • 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.

Multiple computers, one desk - great solution.

Thom Nealssohn, Amazon
1 January 2016
  • 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: Does not work with wireless mouse and keyboard. FAQ on their website solution is to use wired devices. I wish I had done more research.

A complete mess

Val G., Newegg
17 November 2015
  • 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
