USB Sharing Hub Overview
Sharing Hub is the Sharing Device for USB devices. It
includes the function of normal USB 1.1/1.0 Hub as well
as sharing function like a Switch box. It fully supports
2 users (or 2 PC's) to share each USB device by pressing
each switch button. The LED's will indicate the current
use status for each port for the user to identify easily.
The USB Sharing Hub can save your work space, cost and
time and is really a smart design for the users.

Through the Sharing Hub your peripherals will function
as though it wasn't there. The idea of the hub is
to give its users a more versitile peripheral network
so that more than one PC can be used with the same
printer, scanner, or other therefore increasing work
||I used the 4 port sharing hub to share a printer between my laptop and
PC, it couldn't be any easier to use. I didn't have
to install any
or do anything technical, this was a refreshing change.
I could see this in small office situations where
more than one PC needs to share more than 1 USB device,
it's convienient, small, and quick. When I tested
the 4 port sharing hub the was no delay between clicking
the "OK" Button and device operation. The cables
it came with made it possible for me to move it around
a bit so it was somewhat hidden, in an office setting
this is what you would want.
I certainly recommend the 4 port USB sharing hub
for your device sharing needs.
