Sabrent USB-SW30 Reviews

Works as a stand alone - not with a docking station

By Donna
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-10

I bought this to use with a Plugable Docking Station because Plugable is out of their switch (and has been for a long time). This switch makes it very convenient to switch between computers; however, the printer and scanner that are attached to the docking station don't work with this sharing switch. Not sure why not - the displays that are also attached to the docking station do work wtih the switch. It may be an equipment misfit - this switch would be AWESOME if you are not using a docking station, connecting the printer directly to the switch, and then alternating between computers.

Works with docking station

I'm using it to share a USB docking station between two laptops, a dell and an HP. Th docking station has two monitors, a mouse, and a keyboard. It seems to be working really well.

Only one issue

This works ok for what it is... a cheap switch. I use it to switch my headset on and off when working. It is only connected to one computer for that. That way I don't have to wear the headset all day to hear email or lync notifications when I am not in a teleconference. The only issue is that the leds are designed so that you have to be standing almost directly over it to see them. Basically the leds are worthless. It is a cheap switch so if that is the only thing I don't like then I will call it good.

I currently use this switch to share a monitor's USB hub between my work laptop's thunderbolt dock and my desktop PC. It carries my keyboard, mouse, audio, and webcam data without a hitch! Love the price and glad it includes both USB type B cables.

Makes life really simple. I don't know if it is a feature but it auto switches when one of my machine is off, that is really helpful.

Can I have PC A as my desktop, and PC B as my laptop, and have a USB HUB as in the USB port? There is only one, and I want to share my keyboard, mouse, and usb headphones.
Asked by: John
That could work but this item only has 2 x USB Type-B USB 3.1 for devices so one of the items would be left out. Besides that it would work perfectly for this purpose.

Can I use this switch for two USB hard drives that have their own power supply?
Asked by: Gerald
Unfortunately the Sabrent USB 3.0 Sharing Switch would be only able to handle switching of one USB hard drives with external power. You could use the IOGEAR 4x4 USB 2.0 Peripheral Sharing Switch (IOGUS404).
