Exactly what I was looking for

by captkrt on 3/20/2007

After struggling with a couple of IOGear switches that either didn't work or only partially worked, the StarTech switch has been a welcome change. The setup was a snap, and the performance is excellent. It works with both my Mac and PC. I'm glad I went with one of StarTech's "professional" level products, too. I have one of the "economy" level switches at work, which does work well, but there is an evident decrease in signal to the monitor, which I don't notice on this switch. It's worth the extra money. The only problem I have had is that my wireless mouse doesn't seem to want to work with it.
