Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’m switching my monitor between two computers and it works very well indeed. I have just set the video card software on my main computer to use two monitors. All I have to do now is press a button on the front of my EIZO monitor to see the second computer. In my case, I use two cordless mice and key boards because they are lying around. Alternatively, I could just use a mouse and keyboard combo and put the USB plug into the second computer when required. Extremely simple uncomplicated idea. Barry.

Will this allow 2 computers access to one parallel printer port? One computer with parallel output and one USB to parallel converter

Asked by: John
This is very doubtful given that it is a VGA and PS/2 mouse/keyboard switch box. To switch 2 computers between one Parallel printer you would need a Parallel switch box. Unfortunately Maplin no longer sell such a device.
