My laptop loves it and has no problem connecting or waking up when switching to it, my PC however hates it. The main drawback of this switch (any switch really) is that its USB based, so you're basically unplugging a whole bunch of USB's and that tends to make systems not that happy. WIN10 on my PC keeps deleting the USB 3.0 ports after each update and that means I lose all peripherals (make sure you have a backup mouse installed).
The picture quality also slows down, this as the switch has an in-ulit graphics card which negates any high powered graphics card in a PC. My solution was to plug the switch into both monitors, and then have secondary cables running from my PC to the monitors, that way if I wanted to do any gaming or watch a video, I manually change the input on my monitors and the switch takes care of the keyboard and mouse. Its not ideal, but true 4k switches that do not drop the refresh rate are very expensive.
My advice is thus, if you are plugging in two laptops, this is a very very good product!
If you are plugging in a PC, don't bother. Better to just have two keyboards and two mouse and manually switch the inputs on your monitor.
Switching between LAN and WiFi isn't always a viable option...
1. Clamshell mode for macOS does not work
2. Some windows show pixelation when seen on external monitors connect to this dock

Considering the cost, you would expect this to be quality, but seems to be an issue, I have a very unique setup, 3 hp monitors 2 display port and 1 dvi, so this dock has 2 DP and the middle is hdmi, so I have hdmi connected to dvi and the the 2 DP to DP on the other monitors. Everything has been fine at first then now I have an issue with the hdmi port flickering on and off every few minutes. I have checked everything, cables, power, drivers etc... as I said connected directly to the monitor in question via the same cable, stable and no issue, as soon as I connect the hub back into the usb on my pc, the middle monitor hdmi starts to flicker again.
Edit: Startech support said it was a hardware issue; returned it to Amazon and got a replacement, but the replacement also does the same thing. Will be returning to Amazon for a refund. This product simply doesn't work. Returned for a full refund. Startech did follow up after I returned the replacement to see if things were working, so good on them for not just letting issues drop.
- this device is using a software program to encode video, older operating systems (win 7 included) run this program in user mode, after logging on. Therefore, multiple displays are not available unless you are already logged on. It is not possible to use it as KVM for entering BIOS/uEFI from the additional display, for example.
- the encoder is using CPU cycles, sometimes you may notice mall lag/shuttering when the host computer CPU is not too powerful
- every time the device is powered on, a "firmware upload" happens. This may wear the internal flash, but I have no idea how many program cycles is that memory capable of. If the firmware upload function is writing to device RAM, then this is not an issue.
I have 2 monitors, keyboard and mouse connected to my desktop pc and wanted to quickly / easily use them with my work laptop. Seemed like a simple need but this was the only product I could find that did it.
It's quick to set up and worked fine on both desktop and laptop (both running Windows 10).
Unfortunately I discovered that it can only handle 2 monitors at 1080p. The description does state it is limited to one monitor for 4k resolution but I had hoped / assumed it would work for my two monitors -2560x1440 (1440p, aka 2k) and 1920x1080 (1080p) - at full resolution. This was not the case, and the larger monitor wouldn't run at max resolution. It was fine with the 1440p monitor on it's own, so I've ended up with *most* of what I wanted, but with only one monitor it's not a perfect solution - not a great outcome given the price.
Basically i wanted something that would allow me to dock my work laptop on my desk at home and use my own mouse, keyboard and monitors as well as being able to easily switch to my desktop if i needed to.
I freelance and therefore have my own "work" devices so installing drivers isn't an issue for me - worth noting that if your company restricts the installation of software you might want to check with them first if they'll help you install the device drivers. Otherwise the monitors won't connect (note that for me, even without the drivers, any usb devices such as my keyboard did connect to my work laptop, it was just the monitors that wouldn't).
resolutions aren't as wonderful as they perhaps could be but given that i'm not gaming, watching films or editing videos this isn't a massive deal for me.
Only minor complaint is that the button to switch between devices seems a little "sticky" but it hasn't caused any issues so far.
All in all it was easy to setup, has actually helped save me a ton of space on my desk and means i can switch between my laptop and desktop seamlessly.
