Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maplin's Cerulian 4Port USB 2 Switching hub was a blessing, as now I did not have to manually connect the Keyboard and Mouse each time I changed from one Desktop PCs to another Desktop PC - I have two Desktop PC running two different versions of Microsoft Operating Systems; one running Windows XP and the other Windows 7.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it says - switches a 4-port USB hub between two computers. It's a mechanical switch, so you can do the same by simply unplugging a standard 4 port hub from one PC to another, but it is a bit quicker and more convenient. Works fine without the power adaptor for devices that don't need the extra juice (eg keyboard & mouse).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have used this "in reverse" to switch a Logitech "unifying mouse between PCs. KVMs don't work as they emulate rather than providing the direct switching that this does!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had this a while now, just pressed into service, the only draw back is 4 x usb ports needs 2 x usb A to B cables, it would have been better with one usb cable, but then design issues crop up. Switching between the 2 pairs of usb sockets is fine, over all good quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not suitable for 4 USB sticks If you just want to run two computers from one keyboard and mouse a free program "input director" is available. If you want to be able to use 4 memory sticks on two machines fails because sockets are too close together.

I have a usb external HDD which I want to connect to my bluray player & shuttle PC without having to keep unplugging a usb cable all the time. Will this device work for me
Asked by: Anonymous
The unit will allow you to switch between the two devices, whilst the shuttle PC will re-recognise the hard drive when it is switched over I don't know if the Blu Ray player will.
