USB Share Switch Testimonial

After using the 4 Port USB Share Switch between my laptop and desktops I found it to be a very versital tool. The versatility comes into play when beginning to share the USB device between as many as 4 PC's or laptops without the cable switching that is normally needed. The 4 port usb share switch allows me the conveinence of keeping my printer or other usb device connected to all machines, ready for use when I need it. The switch is attractive and compact and well suited for the needs of the small business or home user when more than one PC is needed and I recommend the USB 4 port share switch for just that reason.
