This review is from: Rosewill RKV-2U 2 Port Slim Palmtop USB KVM Switch w/ Audio & Mic/ Black Shell
Comes with a lot of cables. Probably would work fine as intended use.
Only USB 1.1, So don't try and put a USB hub onto it and think it will switch everything for you as I did. It is intended to switch the mouse and keyboard witch is USB 1.1.
Biggest disappointment is I use two laptops with one large LCD screen. I wanted to switch the two back and forth the easily. When this unit switches and leave the other laptop with no second monitor, the laptop turns off Dual display mode.
So if you do use dual displays this is NOT what you want!
If you are looking for a way of sharing two laptops, one LCD screen and sharing all your USB devices, then this is what I did to achieve this. Hook both laptops up to your LCD screen and use the LCD screen to switch inputs. Then hook all your USB devices to a Kensington ShareCentral USB sharing unit. Now I can switch my external keyboard mouse, scanner, printer, etc and switch which laptop is on the main LCD screen without loosing the Dual display mode.
