Works Great I use it to switch my peripherals between my Desktop and MacBook Pro. Works like a champ. The switching button has a nice long cord on it (6′), so I was able to tape it under my desk. Now I feel like a gangster with a shotgun propped up under his desk, waiting for any shenanigans. Except instead of shooting people, I’m switching my mouse and keyboard to another computer. Pretty BA.

Ok, so 5 stars, maybe 4.8? Time to get rid of that KVM *UPDATE* READ THIS Excellent product for what it does…allows me to share up to 4 devices via USB between 2 computers. If you are like me and have been using a KVM switch with PS2 ports, but have a monitor with multiple inputs, like DVI – Display port, HDMI, VGA – you can ditch the KVM, use the monitor to switch inputs and use this USB switch for your mouse and keyboard. I usually leave one PC on 24/7 and the other gets turned on when needed. I have found that if you need to switch inputs to a computer that is not started, it’s best to switch to that input then start the PC.
