5 out of 5 eggsDoes its job

This review is from: Tek Republic TUS-400 4 PC to 1 USB Sharing Switch box between four computers with 2 x 6 ft usb 2.0 A/B Cable

Pros: Plugged right in and started working. Use it as a switch for my wireless keyboard/mouse combo which just has 1 dongle to control both items so it works perfectly. I currently have it connected to 2 computers with plans to add a third down the road.

Cons: Sometimes when switching back and forth a lot, one of the computers will stop recognizing the dongle. But I think its an issue with the computer so no reason to knock off an egg.

As others have noted, it only comes with 2 cables, so if you are using 3 or 4 devices, you will need to make sure you have the additional cables.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with 2 out of 3 of my computers

This review is from: Tek Republic TUS-400 4 PC to 1 USB Sharing Switch box between four computers with 2 x 6 ft usb 2.0 A/B Cable

Pros: For the price it mostly does the job. The buttons give a nice "click" to indicate that it has been switched. Small form factor, can be positioned vertically or horizontally. I use it for a keyboard/mouse switch.

Cons: Only works with 2 of my 3 computers. Does not work with my 2011 MacPro. Works with my MacBook Pro Retina and my 2013 MacPro (trash can), but doesn't work with the older Mac Pro. I can hot-patch the keyboard and the computer sees it, but not when I use the switch. Very odd.

Other Thoughts: Unless you have a MacPro tower, it works great.

I wonder if the fact that the two computers the do work have USB 3 and the tower only USB 2 have anything to do with it?

2 out of 5 eggsbroke in 6 months

This review is from: Tek Republic TUS-400 4 PC to 1 USB Sharing Switch box between four computers with 2 x 6 ft usb 2.0 A/B Cable

Pros: it worked for 6 months
it was cheap

Cons: It only lasted 6 months

Other Thoughts: I used it daily. It uses a mechanical switch so when you push one button down the others are supposed to be forced up. That part broken no two then eventually three and today on all four. If you can find an electric switch do it.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks for switching keyboards

This review is from: Tek Republic TUS-400 4 PC to 1 USB Sharing Switch box between four computers with 2 x 6 ft usb 2.0 A/B Cable

Pros: Does what I wanted: switching one keyboard between several computers. (I dont want a KVM because they have different monitors)

Cons: Does not switch by just looking at the right monitor. I have to press the button :-)

5 out of 5 eggsWorks, but...

This review is from: Tek Republic TUS-400 4 PC to 1 USB Sharing Switch box between four computers with 2 x 6 ft usb 2.0 A/B Cable

Pros: Simple, cheap.

Cons: It's a bit lightweight, so the cables kinda pull it around that desk, and there's no way to secure, except with double sided tape I suppose.

Only comes with 2 usb cables... yet it's a 4 port switch, why would I buy a 4 port switch if I didn't have 3 or 4 things to connect to it?

Other Thoughts: An issue arose however, which isn't really this KVMs fault, but might be more related to the type of KVM it is (there are 3 different types).

I have 3 computers, 2 with Win7, 1 with Win8, each has a different motherboard.

Only on my new one with an z87 ASRock motherboard, after switching between systems a few times, Win7 reports that i've exceeded my USB bandwidth, and this prevents my keyboard and mouse from responding, but i can switch to any of the other computers and it sitll works fine, so I'm currently contacting ASRock to see what they can do about it, cause it's not the switch's fault clearly.
