Ease of Use

Product is great, with one exception which someone noted on using PS2 keyboard and USB mouse - I also had Microsoft adapter for mouse (male PS2 to female USB) and did not have much room to squeeze mouse with PS2/USB adapter connector in next to video connector... a little plastic trim work on the PS2/USB adapter with a Swiss Army knife, and a tie-wrap to secure adapter to video connector did the job. The product works great... very happy I got it !

I setup this as soon as I got the product. Takes about 10 minutes or so. For the most part, it is quite easy. Just push the scroll key twice to switch. It is much better than using push botton. I use it on a Linux box and a XP machine - Not a problem! The only thing is that I am looking for something that would work with both USB and PS2 keyboard or mouse. This only works with PS/2. Hope they make something like that soon.

Works great out of the box

I got this for my dell computers. Setup was easy with no software installs and the built in 6 foot cables helped. No problems so far. The keyboard sequence to switch between computers function fast and reliably.
