USB Share Switch Testimonial

After using the USB Share Switch between my laptop and desktop I found it to be a great little tool. Better than having to switch cables from one machine to the other the share switch allowed me the conveinence of keeping my printer connected to both machines, ready for use when I needed. The switch is attractive and compact and well suited for the needs of the business or home user when more than one PC is needed and I recommend the USB 2 port share switch for just that reason.
