            Comments about IOGEAR 2-Port USB Cable KVM Switch with Audio and Mic:

            I do video editing, and have two workstations, two keyboards, and enough peripherals to fill a small station wagon. I haven't seen the surface of my desk in about 4 years. Then I realized a KVM switch could get me my desk back! So I researched several models, making sure my ports were compatible and my resolutions needs were met, and found the Iogear 2-port USB KVM met my needs.
            First, it was affordable. Second, when I took it out of the box I simply had to plug everything up, including a wireless Logitech mouse, external speaker system, and it just worked. Just like that. Plug it in, turn everything on and bam. No problems.
            I have a nice little button next to my keyboard that switches my systems back and forth, and best of all tons of surface area for my arms, elbows, and lunch. It's fantastic. The device seems to be durable and of quality construction, so I'm not too worried that it's going to fail any time soon.
            All in all, a great value for a great product that I wished I had purchased 4 years ago.

              Comments about IOGEAR 2-Port USB Cable KVM Switch with Audio and Mic:

              I use 2 desktops, one for active personal business, etc and the second for storage of old documents, pics, refernce items and so on. I used to have to have 2 monitors set up so I could refer to something old if need be but that meant I also needed 2 keyboards and 2 mice. Even though the ones I have are wireless it was still extra clutter.

              With this KVM switch connecting both desktops I can work from either one at the click of a button. Plus I have eliminated the clutter of the extra montor, keyboard and mouse.

              I had a concern about it working with my 2 operating systems - Windows 7 Home Premium on one and Vista Home Premium on the other - but they both immediately worked without a glitch. I did need to get a couple of USB extensions because my old desktop is on the other side of the room but there is no degradation of the image from either source and I only have one wireless keyboard and mouse to operate both. It is small enough to fit unobtrusively on my desk behind the monitor and was a breeze to set up.

              Sure wish I would have done this months ago.

                Nice switch, but if you use it with DVI adapter changes monitor resolution every time.

                  Hooked it up and it works. You may have to unplug your keyboard or mouse and plug it back in to get the secound computer to reconise it.
