I bought this product so I can use my work laptop at my desk at home without having to disconnect my home computer from the keyboard mouse and monitor. This fit the bill perfectly. I can walk in, toss my laptop on the desk, hook up one USB cable and the monitor cable and I have all the same functionality as at work. There is no visible bluring at 1600x1200 @ 85 hz on my Viewsonic P815 CRT and it fully supports my wireless Logitech keyboard/mouse combo even with the scroll wheel. Considering the lackluster performance of other MUCH more expensive KVM switches I use day to day, this is a real bargain.

Great Plug & Play product

on 9/19/2006

This switch is really compact and easy to use. I use it to switch between a laptop and a desktop. The USB ports to connect to the computers are really convenient. I initially thought they'd be PS2 and Id have to get adapters, but no. Also switch works through hot keys, so no grabbing for the switch when I want to switch computers. I really like this product - very affordable and efficient
