It seems like a very adequate KVM switch. There is no lag between PC switching that others have complained about with other USB KVMs. One annoying thing that it does is beep everytime you switch PCs. Other Belkin KVMs have firmware updates that turn off the beep, but this one is too new to have any updates yet. I talked to Belkin tech support and they are reporting it, so hopefully a firmware update will allow you to toggle it off. Pretty stupid that they added it to other KVMs and not this one... Other than that, it's just large. They made the buttons huge and it makes the whole thing about 13 inches long.

Pros
-audio and microphone switching
-can switch KVM and audio independently (work on one PC while listening to music from another)
-4 good quality (color coded) cables included
-very little lag-time between switching
Cons
-Annoying beep when switching
-large footprint

***UPDATE*** - I came across a solution to the annoying beep/chirp. The hotkey sequence scrlk+scrlk+B toggles the beep. Funny that Belkin Tech support couldn't provide this solution and it is not in the manual anywhere.

Other than that, I've had this KVM for about 6 months with hardly any problems. Every now and again it will lose the connections for the mouse and keyboard, but bouncing power to the KVM for a second seems to fix it. It has probably only happened 3 or 4 times in 6 months. I'm happy with it.

This KVM does what it promises - makes it easy to use several computers with a single monitor, keyboard, and mouse. It's the best-looking KVM I've seen. Most are designed by engineers - big boxes that look pretty ugly on your desk. This one has a nice interface, with color-coded cables, and unlike many others, this KVM comes with all the cables you need. It's a five-star item.

UNTIL YOU LOSE POWER OR UNPLUG IT

When the power goes out or you unplug it, it has a hell of a time getting back on track. It gets very confused and sends wrong signals to your computer, especially when using key-combinations. Keys will come across as other keys, when holding down a key it will sometimes go dead, the mouse will skip around, and for most purposes, it makes your computers very difficult to use until it is corrected. Here's what it takes to correct it:

1) Unplug the power and all USB cables from the KVM. Wait a few minutes
2) Turn off all the computers attached to it.
3) Plug in the KVM's power, then the USB for the keyboard, mouse, and ONLY ONE computer attached to it. Wait a few minutes.
4) Set the KVM to that computer.
5) Boot up the one attached computer.
6) Test your key combinations and mouse clicks. If it doesn't work, return to step one. If it does, add each other computer one by one.

This can take 30-45 minutes and is very frustrating, especially if your power goes down frequently like it does here in Atlanta. We lost power three times yesterday and two today, so I've wasted hours trying to get this KVM back in working order.

This switch was a little higher than the price range I had intended to pay, but I am very satisfied with the switch and its KVM plus audio capabilities.
Cables for 4 computers are included. They are plenty long for my installation (some cheaper cables are sometimes shorter) and are color coded to match the selection buttons on the front of the unit.
A great feature is that the audio connections can be selected separately from the computer (keyboard, video, mouse) connections. So, you can be using one of the connected computers while listening to audio from a different computer.
I also like that it has an external power supply and is a USB hub with 2 additional USB ports.
My only complaint is that the case is not very deep (only about 5 inches) compared with its 13-inch width. Smaller is usually better with electronics, but in this case I would have preferred something a little deeper so that I could set something else from my desk (e.g., external hard drives, speakers, phone) on top of it.
UPDATE: 4 years later this product is still going strong. I am changing my 4-star review to 5-star. Everything still works great. The switches and LEDs still function perfectly. The original cables are still 100% functional. Even the original power supply is still going strong. This thing has run non-stop for over 4 years and normally is used for its switch function dozens of times per day. I'll probably be moving to a 4-port DVI-capable KVM switch next year -- this one is VGA only -- but I am 100% satisfied with this product.

I tried a couple different KVMs before this one, trying to stay in the $80 range. One was DOA, the other was the Belkin Flip, which would have been fine if it had allowed the monitor to pass along it's profile to the computer. Returned that and purchased the 4-port SOHO. Very easy to install and use. I've only had it about a month, but so far it has worked with every computer, monitor, keyboard and mouse I have tried. Easy to switch between computers, and computers can be hotswapped as needed. The price is a little higher than some of the cheaper KVMs, but it's well worth the investment.
