Product ID: HBS304A24A
This 4 to 4 USB 3.0 peripheral sharing switch connects four USB 3.0 peripheral devices to four different computers, making it easy to switch between which computer is accessing the ports, providing a cost-effective way to create a more productive, space-efficient work area.
Save the expense of purchasing duplicate peripherals, by sharing devices (such as USB printers, portable hard drives, mouse and keyboard) with up to four computers. The USB switch also lets you avoid having to swap cables from one system to another, saving time and effort.
Enjoy fast data transfers to and from your shared peripheral devices. The USB switch supports USB 3.0 (up to 5Gbps), providing high-bandwidth support for devices like external hard drives and webcams. The USB 3.0 switch is also backward compatible with USB 2.0/1.1 and works with older devices.
The plug-and-play USB switch is easy to use, with no drivers or software required. It features a remote port selector that lets you switch peripheral devices from one computer to another with the press of a button. The LED indicates the active computer.
The switch's compact design takes up minimal desk space and it's USB-powered.
The 4-port USB switch can also be connected to a USB hub or docking station, to expand the number of shared devices.
The HBS304A24A is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
