I am using the USB Switch in a Ham Radio setup to switch a computer to radio interface (Timewave Navigator) between two computers to avoid cable swapping. It works great for this function and allows me to keep the radio shack neat and free of loose cables. It was the perfect size also, which was a pleasant surprise.I would recommend this product to anyone wanted to perform a similar function! WB2COY
USB Switch Works great so far. I have a single keyboard plugged into one end, and two cords going out to two different computers. I can now switch between computers w/o having to change the keyboard. To switch from one to the other, I push down a little switch, and it works like a toggle each time I push it down. An LED indicates either green (the left port) or red (the right port). I like the small size of the unit, the simplicity, and the visual design. However, I would appreciate a button/switch that feels just a little more substantial in size and heft. It's just a very small piece of plastic to push and the button itself feels cheap. The rest of the unit seems sturdy enough and I appreciate that cables are provided. Price seems reasonable enough, too.
This AB USB Switch was perfect for my application. Unit functions exactly as stated in product description. The included cables were a bonus in that I didn't have to make an extra purchase. A 5 star customer satisfaction rating from this pleased consumer.
Exactly what I needed for switching a printer between Windows and Linux computers. No competing product available at local stores.
