Iogear GCS42UW6 Compact KVM Switch
The IOGEAR 2-Port Compact USB VGA KVM allows users to share a VGA monitor, USB mouse, and USB keyboard between two computers. It supports multiple operating systems including Windows, Sun, and Mac. Users can switch between computers using a manual switch located on the top of the KVM unit. Being cabled based, users do not have to purchase additional cables in order to use the device. It is entirely plug-n-play and requires no software to run. It is also powered through the USB bus and thus does not require a separate independent power supply to run. It is the perfect KVM for those who want a well-priced, basic KVM that will allow them to multitask with two computers at their disposal.

I hooked it up and it didn't work straight out of the box, video worked but no keyboard or mouse functions.
Good for price, but causes issues
We purchased two of these KVM switches, one for IT workbench, the other for staff. We found that it randomly has an affect on different machines where it seems to overload the USB 2.0 Hub, not letting the computer recognize thumb drives or external hard drives properly. This has turned this box into a fancy monitor switcher...
Works as advertised. I love the simplicity of the device, for I purchased it for work. My non-technical co-workers find it just as useful as I, and LOVE just having to push one button to view the two different PCs connected to it. Thanks again guys!
Very easy to install and it works like it is supposed to. Great product!
KVM diables all other USB ports
This KVM when plugged into my Compaq causes the PC to no longer recognize any other USB device - not even if you reinstall drivers, etc. OK product if you don't use your other USBs, but when you have external drives, USB printers, etc. it is near worthless.
