I've used this product since January 2006, and it has worked reliably switching between my Power Mac G5 using OS 10.4.7 and my old PowerCenter computer that uses a USB card and OS 9.2.2. I tried similar products from IO Gear and D-Link, but the StarView is the only one that has worked. I believe that the reason it works, in part, is because it uses a separate power source instead of the USB connection. This product worked from moment I set it up. As it stated in the manual, there is a momentary pause in system responsiveness upon switching. It pauses for about 10 seconds when I switch to the PowerCenter and for a second or two when I switch to the G5. Highly Reccomended.
