    Works as Described
    I bought this product to use a usb headset with three different sources. It so far lives up to the task. I have a PS3, PS4 and a PC computer and only one headset, this solved the need for me to have to switch the usb plug from device to device every time I wish to use the headset. On the pro side I listed light weight because it is so light that velcro can be used to mount it on the underside of a desk. I also like that I did not need an additional power brick to make it work. I have enough of these as it is. On the con side I say the lights are bright because it is in a bedroom and there is no way to make the led lights go off without unplugging all devices. I did not take away from the rating for this as it is not a huge deal to just tabe over the lights.

    PROS: Lightweight, no power supply needed

    CONS: LED lights are bright for a dark room, no way to turn off lights when not in use

    What can I say? Only that the ordering was convenient, the price was very reasonable, the shipping was fast, the product has been great since I hooked my new laptop and older PC to the same wireless mouse/keyboard set-up about 4-5 weeks ago.

    It switches quick and easy for either computer. No issues so far. The 2 to 1 USB Sharing Switch would have been sufficient but there were a couple unhappy reviews. That could happen with almost any product, but I got the switch with the least negative reviews. So far, I am satisfied. BTW, the guys at Radio Shack sent me here because of the lower prices.

    Perfectly suits my needs
    I am using this USB switch to connect an HP 5180 printer/copier/scanner to my computers. It works perfectly and saved me money and the time ad aggravation of creating a print server network. I placed my order on 2/5/09 and it arrived at the Post office on 2/9/09, the third business day. This is my third purchase from monoprice.com and their quick service and quality products have never disappointed me. I have recommended monoprice.com and I only take that step if I truly believe the service and product will meet a high standard. Kudos monprice.com, I will do business with you int he future.

    Should have bought one sooner!
    Unlike other users, I didn't want an automatic switch. I use this switch to hook up an external back-up hard drive to four workbench computers to save client data. Having to manually change the port is perfect because I often have more than one of the computers running. The device is really small and will fit just about anywhere. I love that it's USB powered 'cause the last thing I need is more wires! The only thing that would have made this product perfect would be mounting holes on the back.

    used as a print server
    confirm that it works as a print share, have all four slots in use feeding one printer. The switch IS manual, you have to select which input PC will connect to the printer, and the lights are small, so harder for people not familiar with which connection is which to use. In our family, the numbers are based upon age, lol.
    recommend.

    Great USB device for sharing printer
    I used this switch to share an HP color laser printer between 2 computers. It works flawlessly so far. It's too early to tell if it will last. I wish that there is a model for sharing between just 2 computers. With this model, I have to cycle through the un-used port to get to the desired printer.

    Works like a charm.
    This product was purchased to share one color printer with 4 public access internet stations. Specifically didn't want an automatic switch to avoid auto-switching conflicts and to better controll the printing queues. Works greats. Absolutely no issue with any of the computers picking up the printer once switched to.

    PROS: Manual Switching... may be a con to some, but manual switching has is benefits in certain situations.

    Great price.... item would be alot more at other vendors.

    Connections seem sturdy and snug.

    Works so far.
    Used to have a junky, flaky korean one I got on Amazon a couple years ago where things would randomly disconnect.

    So far this switch is working perfectly.

    The only way it could perhaps be better is if it had a button for each instead of having to press 1 button multiple times to get to the one you want.
