CS-104U USB KVM switch

The name printed on the box is CS-104U USB CPU switch. There does not seem to be a manufacturer's name on the box. It is made in Taiwan.

In my opinion, it is not a good idea to buy this KVM switch. I got one, and it did not work at all. The video signal did not make it to the monitor, the keyboard/mouse signals did not make it to the computer. I tested it with a Macintosh running OS X, and a PC running Windows XP. The KVM also ruined an Apple keyboard (with a built in hub, came with a Power Mac Cube) that I plugged into it.

This is just my opinion, which I placed on the Web for the Googling convenience of other computer users. Your experience may of course vary. I do not have the time to respond to inquiries on this topic.
