This review is from: TRIPP LITE B004-VUA2-K-R 2-Port Compact USB KVM Switch w/Audio and Cable
Pros: Great product for its price. Hasn't failed me yet, or done anything to make me consider "disposing" of it.
Cons: The only thing I've noticed that's slightly annoying occurs when you're only running one computer and in the process of shutting it down (note: 2nd computer is already powered off). If you're in the process of shutting down Windows, and an "End Program" or other error message pops up, more than likely, you won't be able to respond to those messages as your keyboard and mouse have already been deactivated via KVM during the beginning of 'shut down'. Thus, you'll just have to wait until Windows automatically closes those messages out on its own, which of course, slows down the "shut down process".
Other Thoughts: I've seen multiple complaints about this device resembling a "cable spider" or "electric octopus". Judging by the design, I don't think it was intended to sit on top of your desk or workstation, but at the same time, it doesn't come with anything to mount it on a wall or anywhere behind the desk for that matter. I've resolved this issue with mine by applying a velcro strip to the backside of the KVM and attached it under my desk so that it's out of sight and still in an ideal location.READ FULL REVIEW
