"Very fast shipping. Good job!"

Overview

This USB auto share switch allows four computers to share up to four USB devices. Sharing USB devices, such as a printer, has never been easier! 

The auto share switch can automatically detect and share one USB printer between multiple computers.  When connecting other USB devices, an all-in-one printer or multiple printers, switching is managed by easy-to-use, drag-and-drop software. The software is Windows compatible and must be opened and running on all machines utilizing the share switch. If you prefer to avoid having to use the included software, we recommend using a manual share switch.

We carry USB cables in lengths of 3, 6, 10, and 16 feet to connect the switch to your computers and devices. Click here for pricing.

We also carry a USB auto share switch that connects two devices to two computers.

If you're looking to spend a little less, we have USB manual share switches that toggle between computers using a select button or a hot key.

Pros: Easy set-up and operation

Cons: 1) Manual sparse about installation and unzipping files 2) Unit does not work with several Multi-Function USB devices, notably HP. Does work with Brother MFC. This major flaw/omission is not stated in technical specifications.

Other: Good value for single operation USB devices. Almost useless for most multi-function USB devices

Pros: great for hooking up 3 pc's to one printer

Cons: does not like printers that are assigned a drive letter so you have to manually move the printer to the pc you are on instead of a automatic switch to the printer.
