The device mostly works but is very temperamental. Sometimes it is slow to recognize the connected devices, sometimes it simply doesn't. If one of the PC's goes to sleep all bets are off. The dedicated mouse and keyboard ports do not work, at least not with my Logitech set. I suspect the data rate is too high. But I fixed that by using one of the non-dedicated ports. After using it for several months, the switch has failed. I won't replace it with the same type.
I tried using this to hook up my desktop and laptop to a single monitor, and it seemed like a dud. It would eventually allow my desktop to be output to the monitor, but the PC had to go through the entire boot process before it even "senses" that my desktop was emitting an HDMI signal. Furthermore the mouse/keyboard support seemed flakey, as it didn't even show my keyboard and mouse as plugged in.
When I plugged my laptop into the second input for hdmi, it automatically switched to it, but nothing showed up on the monitor even though I had the laptop duplicating its display.
The switch button on the unit didn't allow me to switch back to my desktop at this point, and in frustration -- I came onto amazon to review the unit and return it.
The only nonstandard thing about my setup that I can think of is that my keyboard is lit up.
Hangs up several times a day; I have to unplug everything then plug it all back in; works for a while then hangs again. Huge waste of $250.
