Try the reviews on Newegg ?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817394080

Or on Amazon ?

The Belkin devices have a part number, like the F1DS104L
thing, for more precision when you're searching.

*******

With regard to Belkin and reviews, think "$0.65"...

I'll always associate the Belkin name with that incident.

I know several people that have used Belkin equipment and most of them did
not work very long or they had troubles with them. Personally, you get what
you pay for.

Do you know "Weasel" who else (apart from Belkin) makes this kind of multi
switch ?

I've used a Belkin 4 port switch (F1DS104T) for about 7 years. I've
connected both PS/2 and usb devices. My son has used a Belkin switch
(don't know model) for about 11 years. Neither of us have ever had
any problems.

I have no idea nowadays. I retired from programming 4 years ago and don't
miss it a bit.

Thank you for your input.
I've also used Belkin 4 port switch for some time, but only PS/2,
not USB one. I wonder whether this USB switch,

works with wireless keyboard and mouse too ?

I'll second that. No problems for many years.

I was slightly unsure about mixing PS2 and USB but works fine.
Three PCs permanently connected and the fourth position I
just connect various laptops via VGA and a USB lead.

Hi There,

Thanks for instant reply which was much more helpful
than a "help" reply from Belkin, quoted when asked;
whether the wireless mouse and keyboard will work
with Belkin SOHO KVM 4 Port Switch, VGA & USB
"The wireless keyboard or mouse may or may not work. "

Well, I've bought this Belkin SOHO KVM 4 Port Switch, VGA & USB
and it works with wireless mouse quite well. I haven't try
wireless keyboard yet but presume that it should work
as well.
THANKS again -
B.
