Close but no cigar,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: StarTech.com 4-to-1 USB 2.0 Peripheral Sharing Switch (Personal Computers)
I have three laptops and up till now I had Wireless keyboard and mouse for each laptop but this have slowly driven me insane with the clutter of three mouses three keyboards. I saw this item and it ticked most of my requirements. What I liked about it is there is no requirements for software just a manual switch to take care of things and no software. No one has mentioned anything about Wireless keyboard or mouse use so based on the review I bought the item.
Unfortunately the manual facility does not work when you try to use a wireless keyboard it is almost like a some protocol overides the manual switch facility avoiding you from manually switching it. This forced me to use the software and retain connection of the wireless mouses to use the software to force switch the KVM however here in lies the problem if you use a password or your PC have a power up password you will not be able to switch to PC manually.
If you have multiple wireless keyboard and mouse Combo's then you can retain their connectivity and add one to the KVM switch leave the rest in storage however you will still need the mouse and the software for each unit to switch the KVM. No good for job entended.
Cabling is well thought out and if you have the urge to have neat cabling then this unit is a definate buy. I have not tested it with with Wecam's or Printers but I guess it will work well it is now consined to if needed box
