This review is from: IOGEAR GCS1724 4 Port VGA KVM Switch w/ PS2 & USB
Pros: Well-designed, compact unit. Attractive, functional. Allows any combination of PS2 and/or USB inputs and outputs --- and, unlike many other products, it actually works. Receives power from client computers, alleviating the need for a separate power supply. The product comes with two 4-foot cables and two 6-foot cables (contrary to the manufacturer's product description which say four 4-foot cables).
Cons: 1) Because it obtains its power from the attached computers, you have to power them all down when making any wiring changes (i.e. adding or subtracting a computer, or changing cord lengths, etc.)
2) The "auto scan" and "next port" functions do not automatically bypass unused ports.
3) There is no "previous port" function (which would be far more useful than "auto scan")
4) The proprietary cables are ridiculously expensive. A six-foot (combined) VGA/2*PS2/USB cable costs $20-50, depending where you buy it. In contrast, you can buy each of these separately for $1-2, for a total of $4-8.
5) One of the four cables included with the product came with a bent #6 pin.

This review is from: USB 2.0 2 Ports Female Type B Sharing KVM Switch for Printer
Cons: see below
Other Thoughts: This is NOT a KVM switch! KVM means Keyboard-Video-Mouse. A KVM switch, by definition, must switch THREE devices. This obviously is a USB switch, switching a single device.READ FULL REVIEW
