Worked great at first 6/29/2020 1:31:43 PM

Pros: Simple easy set up, ideally works well

Cons: May have defective unit, unsure just yet. My main desktop has no problems with this unit, but my work laptop and docking station often struggle with it. The keyboard glitches out, repeats digits, or won't respond, and the mouse stops working until I click a button. The problem is hard to nail down.

I tried switch the USB inputs from my home machine to the work machine, but no change.

I am using a Soarer's Converter on a Teensy to run my keyboard - it's one of those old M style keyboards from the late 80's and I love it. Again - home machine works fine, but the work machine suffers. Both running windows 10.

The mouse is a death adder elite and it only glitches on the work computer side as well. The peripherals work fine when plugged directly into the dockign station or the laptop itself.

Web cam and Yeti Snowball work fine through it all the time - no glitches there.

Weird....

Overall Review: Generally, probably a good product. I either have a one off defect, or more complicated issue that I can't quite prove is this hardware.

Worked alright for a few weeks, then downhill. 6/12/2020 7:28:13 AM

Pros: Inexpensive and has long cords.

Cons: Poor reliability.

Overall Review: This product was functional for a few weeks, but after some time I started getting some really weird behavior with my connected devices (a keyboard with backlit keys) and a mouse. Nothing extremely-high powered. It started with my mouse; the cursor would lock up for a second every now and then. This was really terrible when playing games online. Eventually, it got to the point where my keyboard itself would reset.

When it started getting really bad, I tried to supply additional power through the auxilliary 5V-in port, and the unit gave up the ghost. My devices would receive power but would not be identified by either system.

Simple and works well 5/22/2020 5:31:08 PM

Overall Review: Easy to plug in. Cords are long enough to reach where needed. Not much to go wrong and it hasn't.

Product quit working after a few weeks of use 5/17/2020 6:01:32 AM

Pros: Did what it was supposed to some of the time.

Cons: -Product quality is cheap. The switch felt like it would break any minute.

-Product never switched easily. Always required multiple presses of the button.

-Never sure if the product was going to function correctly.

-Stopped working after a few weeks, right after the return was no longer a valid option.

Overall Review: DO NOT BUY!

Buyer Beware.

Great when it works, annoying failure modes. 5/14/2020 1:46:04 PM

Pros: - Unlike other products, has a "remote" (a button attached to the unit via a wire) which conveniently lets you move your usb wires out of sight.
- Switching from one machine to the other often works.
- Haven't had any difficulties with the trackpad that is attached to it getting properly connected to the new machine when switching.

Cons: - Sometimes, switching from one machine to the other does not succeed. I have a powered keyboard (Ergodox EZ) that sometimes does not get properly connected to the switched-to machine.
- Switching machines takes a bit longer than you might hope (several seconds).

Overall Review: Pretty good, likely better for simpler USB devices.

Nice little KM Switch 4/13/2020 3:56:42 AM

Pros: I got this to be use as a keyboard & mouse (KM) so i can use the ones from my home PC while working from home. This device is not limited to this purpose but works great for it. I have a Razor Black Window keyboard which requires 2 USB plugs but that is not an issue since this is a 4 port switch.

Cons: There is a slight delay of 2 to 3 seconds when switching over from one device to another. So if you need to frequently switch between devices (for some reason) you should be aware of this. Also, as already stated in another review, the switching mechanism feels a bit flimsy.

Overall Review: Overall, i am very pleased with this device for my personal needs, and would recommend it for use as a KM switch.

Great Idea, Very Annoying Issues 4/7/2020 10:47:37 AM

Pros: - When it works it works as advertised.
- Cable length is sufficient for USB connectors and button switch

Cons: - Very annoying and consistent issue causes keyboard to freeze.
- When I have 3 devices plugged into it, the keyboard freezes every 2 minutes.

Overall Review: - Look the concept of this is great, but the consistent issue with devices not working correctly makes it essentially useless.
- The solution to this problem is basically to reset the system. Having to do this every 2 minutes while working is impossible.
- If the keyboard / mouse locks up during a game or some critical operation you have a major problem.
- I am going to seek out a different brand and see if they have the same issues.
