Sharing files between Windows based computers is made easy with the High Speed PC-to-PC Share Cable, model TU2-PCLINK (to share files with Mac computers buy TRENDnet's TU2-PMLINK).
No installation required. Simply connect both computers with the 1.8m (6ft.) cable and an icon automatically appears. Launch the dual file share windows and drag and drop files over the high speed 160Mbps USB 2.0 connection. It's that easy!.
Gone are the file size limitations and hassle of transferring files using CDs, DVDs or USB drives. No external power is required, power is provided by the connected USB port. Drag and drop HD movies, music and more from one computer to the other-fast.
Pros: Very simple to use. Plug in to two PCs and a File Explorer look-alike program opens. Can move files back/forth w/o issue. If you want to do an occasional file move this probably will work for you.
Cons: Pretty basic. Once you close the Application on either end, you have to plug/unplug the device on each end to get the application to open up and establish a new connection. You can not leave this device plugged in and hope to share files. The application has to be open on EACH end all the time. Also, you can not "safely remove" a USB device while the Applications are running... the USB device is always "in use".
Other Thoughts: Tech support was nice, TRENDnet is a good brand. This item was made to xfer files and then disconnect..... I was looking for a point-to-point application that would share files w/o the exposure of a full Network environment. Oh well.
