I've been using one of these
, and have no complaints. There's also a cheaper 2-port version of it.
I don't game any more, but I'm a bit of a user interface Nazi (see: mechanical keyboards
) and would've probably noticed (and been pissed off by) any increase in mouse/keyboard lag. I'm guessing that the USB connection is essentially a direct pass-through, and the switch just snoops the data as it flies past to detect the hotkey sequences to switch the ports.
The years just pass like trains. I wave, but they don't slow down.
