    This little baby was fabulous while it was working. I bought a new Windows 7 machine before realizing my employer s software wasn t compatible with it yet; hence I needed to keep the 4-year-old dinosaur around awhile longer.

    Set-up was a piece of cake, and I was thrilled at the unexpected perk of gaining a USB port on both computers (one connection runs out for both mouse and keyboard). I spent the day blissfully bouncing back and forth between desktops with the simple press of a button.

    Until about 9 hours after installation when the mouse froze up on the old XP. I tried just rebooting it in hopes of fixing the problem, whereupon Windows started hanging in the middle of startup repeatedly. I then plugged it into an even older Gateway I keep around as a backup with the same results. I freaked out, thinking now I needed to track down a cheap used computer somewhere in town running XP just to be able to work. Fortunately it occurred to me to remove the Iogear and go back to my original connections. Problem solved.

    This is going straight back to the store and I m saving up some money for a higher cost (and NOT Iogear) option.

    I bought this to move a wireless keyboard and mouse between my PC and MAC. Not only does it work very well, I was also able to use it to move the Printer back and forth as well since my keyboard and mouse use one USB port.

    If I bring up the MAC first it searches for the mouse before it sends power to the device and the MAC will complain it needs a mouse. But as soon as I hit the button it say, Never Mind! I found the mouse!

    Really nice unit for the money.
