USB Switch

USB Switch

A USB switch allows two or more computers to easily share a USB peripheral such as external hard drives, printers, and scanners. The USB switch saves you cost and space on additional USB devices. On the other hand, it eliminates the need to unplug the USB peripheral from one computer and then plug it into the other. By using the USB switch, you do not need to set up the complicated network just to share a USB device. Simply press the button on the USB switch, the USB device is instantly available to serve any computer connected to it. No software installation required.

Some USB switches also support Auto-Switch function when used with USB-enabled printer or printing function on a MFP (multi-function printer). With the switch software installed on connected computers, you simply send the print job and the switch will automatically makes the swap for you. This can be handy when the USB switch is located behind the desk or somewhere hard to reach.
