An Amazing Little Device
KVMs have been around for many years and as technology evolves, KVMs appear with new types of connectors, more features, and improved functionality. That said, I've been looking for an inexpensive, yet functional solution to sharing a USB keyboard and mouse between two machines. I have a monitor that supports dual input and is easily switched between systems, so that wasn't an issue.
After a few quick searches, I was a bit discouraged when the cheapest USB KVMs I could find were $50 US and up. Until I found the Kensington ShareCentral 2 for USB Device Sharing (K33900US)
Bazinga! This thing is small, inexpensive, and works perfectly to switch my keyboard and mouse between two computers. That's not the only thing you can use it for though, if you wanted to share a printer or scanner, it can do that too. Just consider this an easier way than crawling behind your computer and moving cables.
