The Gefen EXT-USB-2X1, USB Switcher, allows you to switch easily and reliably between any combination of two computers using only one monitor, USB keyboard and mouse.

How the Gefen EXT-USB-2X1 works:

The USB Switcher alternates access between two computers located near each other. Simply plug your peripherals directly into the switch, connect the cables to the computers you want to control, select the computer you want to work on, and you are switching. To switch, press the button in the front of the EXT-USB-2X1 or switch remotely using Gefen's RMT-2 remote control.
