The Plugable USB 3.0 sharing switch is the ideal solution for one-touch switching of access between two computers to a USB mouse, printer, scanner, graphics adapter, docking station, or any other attached USB 3.0/2.0/1.1 device. Attach a powered USB hub to the switch instead of a single device for switched access to everything connected to the hub.


The USB3-SWITCH2 works without drivers on any USB-enabled computer (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc). Connect two computers to the switch via the included 1m/3ft USB A/B cables, attach either a single USB device or a powered USB hub connected to multiple USB devices (cable not included for switch-to-device/hub attachment), and start enjoying the benefits of switched access. Driver installation for the attached devices may be required on the connected computers.

A single button press is all that’s required to change control of the attached devices between the connected computers. LED indicator lights show which connected computer has control.

For anyone considering a KVM switch to provide two-computer access to a single keyboard, mouse, and display, the same result is possible with the Plugable USB3-SWITCH2. Just attach the switch to a powered USB hub that’s connected to a keyboard, mouse, and USB graphics adapter or docking station for an all-USB KVM solution.

The switch can connect USB 3.0/2.0/1.1-compliant devices and hubs, but to function in USB 3.0 “Super Speed” mode, the connected computer and attached device(s)/hub must comply with the USB 3.0 standard. Not recommended for switching mass storage devices such as hard drives, flash drives, card readers, etc.
