Excerpt: Using this hub to share a printer between 2 computers (pc laptop and iMac ) I haven't loaded the software yet for the automatic switch feature. We are just using it manually. It works great. I was looking for a cheap switch from a discount store and bought his from B&H and so glad I did.
Summary: As a simple switching device for sharing a printer between two computers this works great. When the included software is installed it becomes problematic. On my computer the software would lock the printer to my computer on every use.
get Windows 7 driver from iogear before you install

Summary: Working well. You need to open the Installation Guide and follow the instructions so you understand how to get the switch working automatically. Using this for an HP all in one printer shared by a Mac with Lion and a Windows 7 PC.
Summary: I am completely satisfied with the IOGEAR 2-Port USB 2.0 Automatic Printer Switch. It took about five minutes to install and operate. I did not install the software so I just push the switch to go back and forth between computers. It is being used on XP and Vista computers.
