Hi

I purchased and am using the KCEVE 4 port switch mentioned in your second link since 1 Month (To be precise 3 Dec.), from Amazon. I have had it working ok, only the supplied cables stick out of the switch somewhat and it does get warm under normal use. It's also somewhat heavy, due to being made of metal.

However, it does the job of sharing single monitor, keyboard and mouse among 4 systems nicely as long as you have a good USB keyboard & mouse, and HDMI.
