Excellent USB switchI've routed my cordless keyboard and mouse through this along with a set of USB speakers, for swapping input between a PC and a Mac. It works extremely well and the speakers I expected to require the extra power cable work normally without it.
There are two small niggles I have with this, first that they really could have put four lights in since there's no way to tell between outputs 1/3 and 2/4 without moving the mouse around or remembering how many clicks you've given it. Secondly, the extra power socket uses mini, not micro, USB and these cables aren't something most people have lying around anymore.
Overall, would recommend this switch for the price. The extra power cable seems only to be required if you're using very high draw peripherals or charging things from it so it doesn't matter that it isn't included with the switch.
One note: when swapping back to the Mac, the speakers do take several seconds to be picked up by the system. This is due to the OS polling rate and not the switch.
