Great Product

Connected 2 Windows 10 machines together with no problems. Software even downloaded an update immediately. Using it for a week now and I'm a programmer. I switch back and forth between the computers hundreds of times during the day. Definitely work the money. Only issue I had was the num locks key does not seem to be holding on the 2nd computer. Otherwise, love the product.

Works flawlessly most of time

Been using for over 6 months, between a windows 10 machine and a mac mini. Works 90% of the time. The mouse gets stuck at times and will not switch. Keyboard works on both machines but caps lock and num lock do not work correctly as you switch machines.

Upgrade failed

I've had this for a couple years. Recently got a new mac 10.14.6 but when I tried to upgrade, the cable stoped working completely. Is there a way to reInitialize from scratch ????

Ultimately, It Works

Not intuitive. Instructions get Martian at just the wrong motion. Eventually, if you label your machines correctly, you notice the cursor moves from one computers' monitor to the other. Then it gets easier, though it should be considerably better all the way around. A step above ASCII.
