Summary: We had a serious issue with Canon printer and it is a USB we wanted to use with 2 PCs to print and scan. OH man the printer was fine but scanner wasn’t because the printer is input and the scanner is output so you can not just share But this little USB is absolutely the best it does Auto switch between computers but you have to manually switch the scanner.
Pros: Very Good-Would Purchase Again but I only wish they can make the scanner also auto switch
Cons: hope to see this unit will come with full auto switch for printer and scanner but this one is for printer but also for scanner but you have to switch manually
Summary: i got this for my stepfather who needed it for his office. from what i understand, it had both the in and out version of plugging in, so it was perfect. make sure you use the software that it comes with, it's easy to set up! (the stuff from internet that they got at first didn't work). nice little gadget!
Summary: Item works as advertised. Using it to share Canon MF4150 printer/scanner/copier/fax with Mac running Snow Leopard and e-Machines running Windows xp. Switches between the two computers flawlessly. Thought that installation of the driver for the Mac was going to be an issue since the driver was on a mini disc, but downloaded it from the iogear website with no problems. Comes with two usb cables, which is a nice touch.
Pros: Comes with 2 usb cables, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Small
Summary: I use this auto-sharing switch on two computers to share one multi-function printer in my upper elementary classroom. I found it very simple to train my students to use. When switching from one computer to the other, sometimes there is a short delay time while the switch configures itself to print. My students learned to be patient while this happens, or they could click on a small icon before they decide to print a document to help the switch to print faster.
