Quality Product - Clean Workspace This switch makes my life much easier for flipping between my work and personal computer. My previous setup:- 1 monitor/tv- Home PC- Keyboard & mouse for home PC- Mac for work- Wireless mouse for Mac- Bluetooth keyboard for Mac when I felt like connecting it to my monitor/tv and leaving it shutMy new setup:- 1 monitor/tv- Home PC- Mac for work- Keyboard & mouse shared between the PC and MacNow I just need a HDMI KVM switch and I'll be all set! No more switching between monitor/tv inputs!Kidding aside, the only shortcoming I have is that my keyboard doesn't have the same keys as the Mac's, so I'll need to fiddle around a bit to get it set up correctly. The build of the switch itself seems very nice at first blush (have only had it for a couple of days), but time will tell. I guess the only 'con' I can see right now is that I wish the cables that run to my Mac and PC could be switched out for shorter or longer ones if I wanted to.I should have taken a 'before' picture to illustrate how much it has cleaned up my work space, but you can probably tell by the 'after' shot I took that I'm quite pleased. Feel free to ask any questions you may have! I'll do my best to update this post if anything changes. 4Lets say this..It wwwwww wo ow worksss!? Sort of. So I bought this device to share a single mouse and Keyboard with 4 separate computers. I only need to access the other 3 occasionally, so I figured there was no need to have 4 mice and 4 keyboards all on my desk.After doing lots of scouring of the internet (pretty much on Amazon..Thanks rewards points!!) I settled on this device. It was simple to setup and after about 5 minutes I was up and running with all 4 computers able to access a shared keyboard and mouse. There are even 2 more USB ports left for any other device I may need to hook up.All worked well for about an hour and then the keyboard started repeating and skipping keystrokes. It appears to be computer specific in my case. The Keyboard works fine for the other 3 systems but it is giving me errors on my primary system. I tried several different brands and types of keyboards including wired and wireless and they all either repeated keys or didn't work at all.For my purposes this device works as I primarily need the mouse functions and it seems to work on all 4 systems fine. I will continue to mess around with this and If I am able to resolve my keyboard issue I will post it here. For now I just have my keyboard plugged directly into my main system and my mouse plugged into the sharing switch.My Keyboards:Wired Dell 2016 fullsizeWired Amazon Basics Fullsize.Logitech Wireless K400 PlusA4 Tech Wired mini keyboard 3Perfect! I like this IOGEAR GUS402 USB switch. It is quite small and nicely made. I use it to switch my Logitech Wireless Keyboard and Mouse between my Windows XP Desktop PC and my MacBook Pro 2016. It works perfectly. There are very few units that have an remote external switch to change from computer #1 to computer #2. This is a great feature of the GUS402 which allows you to locate the main unit and wires under or behind the desk and the external switch on top of the desk. I also like the LED indicators on the unit which tell you which computer is currently selected.I highly recommend this unit. 5Ok, so 5 stars, maybe 4.8? Time to get rid of that KVM *UPDATE* READ THIS Excellent product for what it does...allows me to share up to 4 devices via USB between 2 computers. If you are like me and have been using a KVM switch with PS2 ports, but have a monitor with multiple inputs, like DVI - Display port, HDMI, VGA - you can ditch the KVM, use the monitor to switch inputs and use this USB switch for your mouse and keyboard. I usually leave one PC on 24/7 and the other gets turned on when needed. I have found that if you need to switch inputs to a computer that is not started, it's best to switch to that input then start the PC.The only negative I have found so far is that the button for switching inputs sticks, so I pried the case a little to relieve pressure around the button. No sticking.I am using this with a Corsair keyboard and a Wireless Logitech mouse...product works great.*UPDATE* 5/9/17 YOU NEED THIS...If you read all the reviews, there are people complaining about either...1 - the switch is SLOWWWWWW, or 2 - it only works well if it is plugged into a powered computer all the time.SOLUTION - there is a DC in 5v on the front. There is a reason for this...POWER! When you put a 5v power adapter in it, it works just fine and doesn't need to be connected to a powered on PC all the time, and it isn't slow to switch. I used an old Motorola charging brick. Works GREAT and I leave it plugged in all the time. (we are talking about for the past 3 years!!) 5Works Great I use it to switch my peripherals between my Desktop and MacBook Pro. Works like a champ. The switching button has a nice long cord on it (6'), so I was able to tape it under my desk. Now I feel like a gangster with a shotgun propped up under his desk, waiting for any shenanigans. Except instead of shooting people, I'm switching my mouse and keyboard to another computer. Pretty BA. 5you can't easily look and tell which number is selected EDIT: after a few months, I downgraded this to 1 star. For some reason, it will go to sleep and refuse to wake up connected devices. The whole point of having this unit is to be able to switch between PCs when I need to do work on on or the other. If it can't handle one PC going to sleep while you're not using it, then it's useless.PREVIOUS REVIEW BELOW:Fundamentally does what you need it to do, but it will sometimes lose connectivity to the right computer if you power cycle. One other annoyance for me is the light buttons that tell you which PC is activated aren't distnct enough. If you've got this unit tucked away behind your monitor and you use the remote, you can't easily look and tell which number is selected. The lights should be color coordinated.And, there should be a secondary light on the remote. For my setup the remote is kind of useless. I always end up in this guessing game of cycling through a guessed number of taps to switch to a different PC.If they fixed these 2 issues I'd give it 5 stars 1Works well except for one issue. Keystrokes randomly stick on my keyboard while typing since I started using this KVM. Otherwise it works well.Update: According to IO Gear support, these devices only work correctly with a basic keyboard and mouse. Meaning if you have anything more fancy than a generic 104 key keyboard and a generic 3 button mouse, you can expect problems. 1Great as a keyboard & mouse switch I use this with two Mac, a Windows laptop and a Linux laptop. Basically I use it as a KM (keyboard & mouse) switch for the most part. The VERY long cable for the switch is great. I have the switch mounted under my desk while the device itself is on top of my desk. The different lengths of cables are nice, I guess they could have made them all longer instead of two longer ones, but, for my needs, they work just fine. The switching is quick, all the operating systems recognize my devices. I've even used a Blue Yeti and a Blue Nessie microphone through it and they both worked just fine. I didn't even have the additional power hooked up.If I had any complaint, I think it would be that the mini-usb jack for additional power is on the front with the rest of the USB ports. I would rather it be on the back of the device. One, it gets in the way if you use it more like a hub than just a switch. And, you are typically going to have your power coming in from the rear so you can have some odd cable situations if you want it powered from more than just the computers it is hooked to. But, really, that is a minor complaint. Otherwise, it works as advertised. 5Functions as advertised, but you might want longer cables (easy enough to buy, though) Since I couldn't find a reliable and reasonably priced HDMI KVM, I decided to use the multi-HDMI/DP ports and input selection on my monitors. That just left input switching, which is where this product came in. There really don't appear to be many competing devices of this type, so I was hoping this one would perform well.ProsThe device appears to be well constructed. It came with 4 A/B USB3.0 cables, which is nice).ConsFor my arrangement, the included A/B cables weren't long enough. That's not really IOGear's fault, but it's hard to imagine many setups where the included cables would work well. I purchased some 9 foot AmazonBasics cables (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I83XF76/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_22), and they work great. This is not going to be a con for everyone, but I would have preferred if there was a way to toggle the port selection with a key combination. The included button is ok, but coming from KVMs, it would be much nicer to just hit Scroll Lock (or some other key) a couple times, and then an arrow or number. That's a bit more involved than just switching the traffic (since you're having to identify HMI devices and snoot their input), but I would have been ok with having to use a specific USB port on the front of the switch for my keyboard. The last gripe is that there's no option to supply your own power to the switch. the USB3.0 standard allows for higher draw, but it's still a single USB3.0 port having to service 4 at the switch (along with whatever amount of power the device itself may use).ConclusionThe only things I don't like about the product are things I didn't expect out of it in the first place. If the product had longer cables, or more traditional KVM functionality, it would have cost more. It just so happens I would have been willing to pay for it, but I'm probably not the target audience for the product in the first place :p 4Simply awesome After reading the reviews, I was pretty worried, so I prepared beforehand to replace the switch everyone complained about, I was also afraid the switch wouldn't work well with OSX/Win10Well although I'm a mechanical switch fan, I found the switch to be usable and decided to use it for the time-being, at one point, I'm going to move one of the leds to the switch and install a mechanical switch there, a Cherry MX one, so I will be able to differentiate things too, but not now, as the switch has been 100% persistent for meBoth OSX and Win10 recognise my custom mechanical keyboard and Logitech G602 instantly, so I love this switch, without this, I couldn't make my setup workI also checked the USB power usage with a USB-meter, there was no anomalies, at least I couldn't detect any, the power draw was no higher than the 2-devices combined, it was 0.03A, the voltage was 4.99VUpdate: I agree that the button becomes annoying with usage, going to cut the cord, open the cable and install a simple mechanical switch as soon as I can 5
