I bought the F1U400 as a KVM switch substitute, allowing me to use a USB mouse and USB keyboard between two computers (I can't use a KVM for my monitor, due to RF interference).
The switch *blinks*. When a USB component is plugged into it, the box indicates this by blinking an LED for that component. The blinking is very distracting, and the design of the LEDs (lots of curves) would make it difficult to cover them up. I've ended up hiding the switch behind my monitor.
The box has four buttons to swap USB components among hosts. Pressing a button once lights up the current host. You then need to press it again to start cycling through the list. The box waits for input for five seconds; only after those five seconds are complete does it reconnect the component. Any other button presses in that time cancel the change. This means that switching from one machine to another is far more laborious than with a normal KVM (particularly if you're switching a keyboard and a mouse separately).
Because I'm operating in a mixed Windows/Unix environment, I haven't installed the Windows switching software.
The F1U400 is probably a reasonable approach for components like printers, mass storage devices and scanners, which won't be moving from machine to machine with nearly the frequency of keyboards and mice. You'll have to hide the LEDs, though.

In our little computer room with 3 desktop machines & a couple of laptops, we need to share the new Canon printer that also had a scanner. The old USB switch that worked fine on a simple printer would not work at all with the multi-purpose printer. I had do go a number of "go arounds" with the Belkin and Canon tech support teams to figure out the problem with the old switch.

It turns out a POWERED USB switch is needed for this setup to work correctly. This switch is able to share the printer and 3 other USB devices among our computers. A quick and simple install was needed on each of the computers to work with the switch, plus the printer/scanner drivers.

beautiful switch. we hooked it to 4 computers. however, installation in the pc running win8, 64mode, failed--icon and manual appeared on desktop, but without necessary operating software program--and error messages saying "not recognized". Manual only says earlier versions are supported.
We had to remove it. It might work ok on a system that does not include Win8.

I setup a Macbook Air and Alienware desktop with this, but had a lot of trouble getting either to detect on bootup. Ended up scrapping this because it was more trouble than it was worth.
