IOGEAR GUB211 USB 2.0 Printer Auto Sharing Switch
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Cute but Didn't Work for Me 07/15/2011

This review is from: IOGEAR GUB211 USB 2.0 Printer Auto Sharing Switch

Pros: Cute device, USB cables supplied

Cons: On the company website the description of the GUB211 is this: "IOGEAR's USB 2.0 Printer Auto Sharing Switch enables two PCs and/ or Macs to easily share* one USB printer, multi-function printer, or USB device. No more plugging and unplugging between your computers. Simply send the print job and the switch automatically makes the swap for you."
The product did not deliver the advertised functions for me. It was glitchy (intermittent malfunctions) hooked to my Canon MP610 multi-function printer (MFP) and Tech Support at Iogear, although courteous, couldn't solve the problem. And this will apply to every user: the so-called automatic switching is not automatic because it requires manually choosing a setting from a popup menu each time the alternate computer wants to print. That ain't automatic. (2 iMac dual core Intel computers, OS 10.6.8, Canon MP610 printer)

Other Thoughts: I believe the Iogear product description should disclose that the GUB211 MAY NOT work with your MFP printer.
