The IOGEAR GUS434 sharing switch is a convenient solution to share four USB peripherals between four different computers. It supports plug-and-play functionality with no need for software installation, while also letting you easily switch between those four computers with a simple button press. Complaint with USB 3.0, this switch offers data transfer rates up to 5Gbps and is also backward-compatible with USB 2.0 & USB 1.1.

How It Works
Features
USB 3.0 Compliant

Being USB 3.0 compliant with a data-transfer rate of up to 5Gbps, this 4x4 USB 3.0 peripheral-sharing switch works well with high-bandwidth devices including hard drives, high-resolution webcams and more. Connect a keyboard and mouse to the GUS434 and use it as a simple USB dock or limited KM switch, to serve as a simple means of controlling four computers from a single control point.


Backward Compatible

The 4x4 USB 3.0 peripheral-sharing switch is also compatible with older USB devices.


LED Indicators

You will always know which computer is active at a glance via LED indicators.


Hot-Plugging

Hot-plugging allows you to easily add or remove computers connected to the switch without having to power it down.


Support for Additional Power

An optional Micro USB cable can be connected to support additional power. Get up to 2.5W via the USB 2.0 port or up to 4.5W via the USB 3.0 port.


Over-Current Protection

IOGEAR GUS434 offers over-current protection, meaning you can use it with full peace of mind.

Great Switch 5/31/2019 11:16:06 AM

Pros: Use to share external hard drives between three different computers - works perfect.

Cons: Wish the switch button was on unit - not a wire which plugs into unit

Overall Review: I am sharing hard drives between three computers - one with Windows 10, one with Windows 7, and one with Windows XP - it functions correctly with all three systems.

Great solution for multiple computers 1/18/2018 5:53:40 PM

Pros: This just works, which is the best you can hope for. The toggle switch allows you to tuck all those cables out of sight and have a clean desk. 4 USB inputs and 4 outputs gives me room to upgrade in the future if I have more USB devices, or add more computers.

Cons: It would be nice had the switch operated like the old school KVMs with a keyboard shortcut (like pressing scroll lock twice) instead of having a dedicated button. But its a minor complaint.

Overall Review: My setup is a desktop (games) and two laptops (work and personal) and a USB keyboard/mouse/headphone combination. I used Synergy for the keyboard/mouse switching for about a year, but there is input lag, and Synergy does not yet support Wayland on Linux. I physically moved the headphones around when switching which wasn't ideal. This solution solved all those problems, and gave me much more responsive input. Good product

Pretty straight forward 9/28/2016 6:41:27 PM

Pros: I can hook up 4 devices to all my machines. This is only product I could find that does this.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Editing my review after further testing of my previous issues. Issue isn't the hub, but other USB devices that were plugged into it. Changed my review to 5 stars because once I narrowed down my issues, the device is flawless.

decennt usb3 switch 3/30/2016 10:04:18 AM

Pros: Seems to switch reliably.
Comes with a full set (4) usb3 cables for hooking the switch box to the computers.
usb powered.
It has a remote switch so switch box can be located elsewhere (maybe, see cons).

Cons: minor issues mostly:
- Switch has to be cycled through all positions even if there isn't a computer hooked to a port. e.g. if you only have 2 or 3 computers sharing devices, you have to cycle through all 4 positions to get back to starting point.
- Display leds are on the top of the box and laid out as a box matrix. row 1: 1-2, row 2: 3-4 which makes little sense as all the ports are linear left to right 1-4. So the layout makes it difficult to tell what port is active by looking at the box (if you can see it). e.g. if #3 is selected at a glance you can't tell if it is #1 or #3.
- Also with the having to cycle through all the ports it is easy to get lost as to what port is currently active. Would have been better to have a linear row of leds, perhaps with numbers to show which port is active.
- The remote switch is lightweight and is too easily moved around (I ended up doublestick taping it to a fixed point on my desk).

Overall Review: So upshot is box needs to be visible, even though it has a remote switch so you would think that wouldn't be rquired, to ensure you are on the right port and even then it isn't quickly obvious what port is active.

It's a good switch and functionally works well if you require usb3 switching which I did. Perhaps over time there will be others that are a little better thought out from a UI point of view.

I'd buy it again simply because it offered >2 devices shared between >2 systems which is what I needed.

Excellent so far 2/14/2016 9:57:30 AM

Pros: Works as described. I only attached a keyboard and mouse so I don't know about behavior with printers and external drives. But it was simple to set up - just connect the wires and let windows recognize the peripherals, and I can play online games with no delay or any other problem. It takes a couple of seconds to switch computers after pressing the button but I can live with that. I think it's a better solution than software like synergy. This is plain hardware switching that does not interfere with the computers. I looked at other solutions also thinking that it might be better to click a keyboard key to switch computers but I attached the external button they provide with velcro on my keyboard and it is perfect - no confusion with power down, just switch to another computer.

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: I hope it will behave the same way when I attach a smart tv. We'll see.
