    Comments about 2-Port USB 2.0 Manual Switch:

    Simple instructions and setup. We installed 1 switch in each of our 15 stores. Every installation went well with no issues or glitches. Installed on both Windows 7 and Windows 10 machines (mixed) with no problem. Dirt simple operation, even our most technically challenged operators easily grasped the concept of it's operation. Tried an automatic switch from a different vendor and it never worked properly. This switch works!

      Comments about 2-Port USB 2.0 Manual Switch:

      They work every time. Sometimes when I switch computers, they switch automatically, but usually I have to do it manually. Since I am not dead yet, that is not a problem. Besides, they are advertised as a manual switch.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I think the warehouse is very close. I seem to get everything I order from C2G in less than 5 working days. No complaints.

          Comments about 2-Port USB 2.0 Manual Switch:

          I had a commercial installation with 7 meeting rooms, each with a USB-based web camera. There were to be two connection points in each room where users could connect a laptop to the camera (not at the same time). I used this device as well as the C2G 53878 USB extenders to make it all work. It auto-senses the connected laptop and switches every time. My client is very pleased, and so am I.
          I have also tested this with an "intelligent interactive touch-sensitive annotation display" with good results as well.
          This is one versatile tool that will be in many more future quotes.

              Q:

              I have a lighting 30 pin female connector that plugs into my iPad. I want to download books from my iPad to my iPod. Apple does not make a connector for this use. I am hoping to jury rig something using my 30 pin connector, my iPod charger and another iPod charger and a 2 port usb to accomplish this task. Will this usb work for this or is there one that you can recommend?
              I know from searching the internet that other people are looking for the same type of connector!
              Please help.

                Product 30505 will not work for your requested application. Product 30505 will only function to switch between 2 computers utilizing 1 device.

                This device will support Mac OSX 10.4+, There will not be any issues using the manual switch with both operating systems however you will not be able to use the Hot Key Function.

              Q:

              Do you think I could use the product in the following way?

              I want to be able to switch in or out a USB Headset (manually). The USB Headset has a type A male plug and the computer has a standard female USB A type receptacle.

              Reason for this use is essentially to be able to remove my headset without unplugging it.

              Is there a better suited product in you lineup? I basically want a single port type A on off switch?

                This switch should work in the way you want it to. This way you can select the B computer on the switch when you want the headset disconnected.
