5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 20 Jun 2012
By stilgar

I'm using this USB switch to connect a keyboard and a mouse, through a USB hub, to two separate computers.
This switch works exactly as one would expect - a single press of the button disconnects the USB device(s) from one PC and connects them to the other.
The switch did not act up and presented no compatibility problems - it was used with Mac, Linux and Windows machines. It even worked with a Raspberry Pi (although in that case I suspect either the USB Hub or this switch interfered with a USB Wireless adapter).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Workable Buy 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase
Have 2 PCs sharing a 7-port hub and needed one hub that embodied a sharing switch, but unable to locate a suitable product. Hence the need to use a 2-port switch. The Konig is well made, nicely priced and worked first time - on 2 sets of PCs & hubs. Hence the purchase of a second hub.

4.0 out of 5 stars A simple switch 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
My observations:

The unit is relatively large for a simple switch.
It has a USB-A socket which can be switched with a press button on top to either of the USB-B sockets, which are labelled PC1 and PC2.
There are two lights on the top that show either PC1 or PC2.
There are no cables supplied.
It defaults to PC1, the left-hand socket, when powered on.
The sockets are a good fit.
The whole thing seems well made.
There are four rubber pads on the bottom.

-1 star for me for not using the connection it had previously, as I said it defaults to PC1.

I use mine to switch network USB hard drives from my router to my PC for maintenance, which it does without problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works fine 9 April 2014

Happy with this, works just fine with a Logitech wireless connector (mouse+keyboard).

Here is just a couple additional details:
If unplugged it will default to PC1
Standby power is sufficient to keep it powered.
It still allows to wake up a PC left in standby (using mouse or keyboard).

5.0 out of 5 stars Working great with PC + Mac 25 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
Working with my Dell XPS 15 laptop and my Mac Min 2012

I plugged my Dell monitor usb hub cable into the switch, and it changes practically instantly.

Very surprised at the speed it switches. 1 second or less.

Feels decently constructed.

The reason I bought this was to be able to switch between my PC and my laptop when docked. Once I disconnect my laptop, the keyboard and mouse is no longer available to the PC. Read more
