The U215-002 2-Port USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Printer/Peripheral Sharing Switch saves you money, time and precious workspace by letting you connect two computers to a single USB peripheral. Recommended for home and small offices, this sharing switch eliminates the cost of buying two printers, two scanners, two hard drives, etc., as well as the problem of where to put them and their cables.

One-touch port switching lets you switch between computers using a mouse, hotkeys or manual pushbutton. The U215-002 detects print commands and switches computers automatically. Idle time-out switching ensures all data is sent from the active printer buffer before switching ports.

A taskbar icon indicates the connected device's status. LEDs on the unit indicate which computer currently controls the device. The U215-002 is compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 devices and supports data transfer rates up to 480 Mbps.

No external power supply required. Switch is compatible with all USB-enabled Operating Systems. Optional CD software is compatible with Windows (XP and later) and Mac (OS X 10.3 and later).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best quality, function and price!I am an Engineer by profession and know function, quality and value. This is an electro-mechanical switch with a positive click. We tried one from Staples which was strictly software based and it did not work worth a darn. We should have gone to CDW first instead of wasting our time. BTW, the CDW customer assistance was outstanding.and the person helping went out of her way to show us similar products for comparison. A great overall buying experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY!Don't know what took me so long to FINALLY find this switch, knew one had to exist but just didn't think about CDW after my move from Vernon Hills, IL, where I could just walk into the store and ask. Portland, OR is a long way away, but everything works great now! Thank you!!!
