The CS22U is a 2-port USB Cable KVM Switch that provides a simple and quick method of selecting computers - a built-in remote port selector. This allows the CS22U unit to be hidden from sight, while the remote port selector can be placed conveniently on the desktop.

The CS22U's compact all-in-one design makes it ideal for multiplatform desktop applications that require high resolution video.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth it My application wasn't as purely for the USB capabilities of the unit so no VGA reviews here! Purchased this today and am very happy with it, connection was easy and straight forward, no instructions or drivers needed. Using my Sidewinder x4 and Razer deathadder to bridge into both my i7 based gaming rig and my "leisurely" Ubuntu thin itx system. It happily switches between the 2 and is instant and snappy. No noticeable USB lag (thank the stars) Very happy for Ј20 and feel much more comfortable using a branded KVM over the generic rubbish you get on major auction sites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This device operates exactly as expected, perfect. However, the configuration, with plug sockets at one end and cables at the other, with indicator lights on the top is slightly inconvenient. I've not found an acceptable mounting location. I have purchased a duplicate for another application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect to switch between my laptop and home PC. Great price for the quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its a basic product but works as it should. The length of the cables connecting to the computer is quite short which makes it difficult if the VGA and USB ports are on different sides of a laptop.

hi, Can you confirm this item is suitable for use with inputs from both Windows XP and Windows 10?

Asked by: Intouchpurton
The KVM switch doesn't care what it is plugged into, it's just a physical switch between 2 sets of inputs it will happily work with any operating system.

I have a Mac Mini with wireless keyboard and mouse, and a PC running W10 also with wireless keyboard and mouse. Will this product allow me to switch share one monitor?

Asked by: Cooperman
This should be fine, however you would need to connect the USB leads as well as the unit draws a small amount of power to operate.
