      Works just as expected based on the reviews I read. While some people might like the use of pressing a key sequence on the keyboard to change from one device to the other, I like just pressing a button. Yes, it is one extra cord but it is quite simple and it passes the wife test. No complains and it works with my wireless Logitech keyboard mouse combo. The wireless adapter only has one USB, but it still works correctly. All in all a great product for a great price.

      A needed item for switching between workstation monitors. It is a little slow, too much black screen time between displays. I believe there are also KVM switches that use an existing key stroke instead of the attached button / switch found with this devise. Seems like high quality design and execution - just lacking in speed.

      Comments about IOGEAR 2-Port USB KVM Switch:

      I needed something so that I could access two separate computers, with two different Operating Systems, to the same monitor - without having to change the plugs back and forth. This product did the job perfectly. I had to mess with the USB plugs a bit first, but finally got it right, and how easy it is now! I'm very pleased!

          Bought two. One caused monitor waves. Interfered with an LG 27" LED monitor. The other worked perfectly with an LG 23" LED monitor. Your mileage may vary.

          Switches, but Lacks Resolution Quality

                This switcher has quite a bit of delay in switching between signals, but the main issue is it degrades the resolution quality when used. I unplugged it and wired up my monitor direct as originally wired and the picture quality was great. It just does not have the ability to achieve that 1080 quality as you are used to prior to using it.

                Comments about IOGEAR 2-Port USB KVM Switch:

                I wanted the convenience of having two computers but only one monitor and being able to switch without having to get up and reattach the monitor.

                It works fine, just has a lot more wires than pictured in the image provided.

                The one thing which was not known by the tech person at Iogear, which might be helpful info to a Mac person with a short mouse cord, was that I was able to attach the single USB cord which combines my keyboard and mouse to the USB port on the KVM switch and a single USB cord from that switch to the two computers respectively. Ordinarily you have to attach the mouse to one port and the keyboard to the other, and do the same with each set of cables to each computer. That also left a USB port open on my mac mini which is a plus.

                        I took a chance buying this switch. I use it to switch the keyboard and video but I have a separate ps2 mouse on each machine. It works fine this way - and takes only a single USB slot to use it this way.

                                    After a while it is working without a hitch.

                                    Initially, I couldn't connect it to my notebook computer because the vga connector is on one side of the notebook, the usb connectors are on the other side, and the cables won't reach across. IOGEAR Support was absolutely useless. They offered to sell me more cables. My solution is to cut the cables apart so they reach.

                                    When I first installed the switch I had trouble with the display of my notebook. After switching, it would display the wallpaper but not the desktop or applications. I switched cables between the computers and have had no trouble since.

                                              Built-in cables make the unit far less bulky. I really like that the actual button you press to switch between your computers/servers is small, discreet, and on a long cable. This allows you to hide all the ugly cables out of sight.

                                              Another bonus for my particular use is that you can use either the VGA, USB, or both, you don't need all the cables plugged in.

                                              A needed item for switching between workstation monitors. It is a little slow, too much black screen time between displays. I believe there are also KVM switches that use an existing key stroke instead of the attached button / switch found with this devise. Seems like high quality design and execution - just lacking in speed.

                                                  This is a great KVM option for people who want to use a USB KVM switch without loading software. This is a simple pass-though device that works very reliably. It is also very easy to set-up.

                                                        Works great with my Macbook pro and PC connected to the same monitor, I wish the usb slots were a little more spaced apart, and sometimes when I switch back to my mac the usb keyboard and mouse don't register, but that's only sometimes.

                                                              The switch installed easily and worked from the start. I'm using a docking port for a laptop and there's no issue.
