To put it simple, this KVM works!!! I was able to connect both computers without powering them down.

I had been using a PS/2 KVM switch between my Inspiron 8000 laptop and my desktop. Over time, the PS/2 port on the laptop has become unreliable (mouse position drifts). Using an external mouse and keyboard via the single PS/2 port also requires a Y-adapter cable, which tends to be a nuisance. With this USB unit, I no longer need the PS/2 port. No more wandering mouse pointer and so much easier to plug in. Fantastic value.
