00:00:08 00:00:13 Take a look at this little box from Kensington, you know, if you are like me,
00:00:14 00:00:18 you probably have a desktop and a laptop right?
00:00:18 00:00:22 And it can sometimes be a little frustrating sharing peripherals
00:00:22 00:00:23 between the two, right?
00:00:24 00:00:27 I mean, you have your one printer, you have your external hardrive,
00:00:28 00:00:29 you want to be able to use that printer with your desktop,
00:00:29 00:00:32 and you want to use it with your laptop, and you want to be able to use your
00:00:32 00:00:36 external hardrive with all of the stuff. You could network everything together,
00:00:36 00:00:39 but that's kind of a pain. And you just kinda want it to be a nice, simple solution
00:00:40 00:00:43 and Kensington has really come up with one.
00:00:43 00:00:47 This thing is really, really great. It is the Kensington ShareCentral 2,
00:00:48 00:00:53 and it's going to absolutely simplify your whole deal with sharing some of your peripherals
00:00:55 00:00:59 with two of your computers and it's gonna do it in a really, really easy way.
00:01:00 00:01:04 Take a look at this. On the back there are just a few ports on this thing.
00:01:05 00:01:08 You've got, these are plugging into your computer right here.
00:01:08 00:01:09 These will run to the USB ports on your computer.
00:01:10 00:01:13 And these are plugged in from your USB device.
00:01:14 00:01:19 So, they say you plug in your printer here, and you plug in your internal hardrive right here.
00:01:19 00:01:21 Alright? And now you have your two peripherals hooked up to this box,
00:01:22 00:01:24 and your two computers hooked up to this box.
00:01:24 00:01:26 Plug it into the wall with the included AC adaptor.
00:01:27 00:01:30 And then, every time you want to switch between something,
00:01:32 00:01:33 when you want to switch, you just push this button.
00:01:34 00:01:36 If you want to switch your hardrive between your two computers, you just push the button.
00:01:36 00:01:38 If you want to switch your printer between the two computers, you just push this button.
00:01:38 00:01:43 So, with this box you could actually have you printer live and running
00:01:43 00:01:48 on your desktop while your hardrive is live and running to your notebook,
00:01:49 00:01:53 and all with a simple flip of the switch.
00:01:54 00:01:57 So, as you can see, you're probably thinking, ah-ha,
00:01:57 00:01:59 this is exactly what I've been looking for.
00:02:00 00:02:03 Every time I try to print something I have to unplug my USB port and plug it into my printer.
00:02:04 00:02:07 Every time I try to print over my network, it just doesn't work, for some reason.
00:02:07 00:02:11 This is going to solve that problem and it's gonna solve it in a very, very
00:02:12 00:02:15 simple, simple way. It's all plug and play.
00:02:15 00:02:16 There's no network required.
00:02:17 00:02:20 It's gonna work right outa the box.
00:02:20 00:02:25 It does include some driver utility CDs, to make things a little smoother.
00:02:26 00:02:30 But, you actually don't even have to do it because it actually has an automatic
00:02:30 00:02:34 and a manual mode that's going to allow you, to allow this to actually be
00:02:35 00:02:38 controlled through the drivers there included with it as well.
00:02:38 00:02:41 So, if you have it on automatic mode, you can actually switch between devices
00:02:42 00:02:44 without even touching the box, which is really, really cool.
00:02:44 00:02:49 But, I thought this was neat. I pulled it off the shelf, and I was like, you know this is something
00:02:49 00:02:52 that I could use, so other people could probably use it as well.
00:02:52 00:02:57 Not a whole lot more to say about it. It's just going to simplify your situation
00:02:58 00:03:00 when sharing your peripherals. And... on the top here,
00:03:00 00:03:03 it does have a picture of a printer and a hardrive, it doesn't have to be
00:03:04 00:03:05 a printer or a hardrive. It could be a scanner.
00:03:06 00:03:09 It could be a webcam. It could be anything that is USB,
00:03:10 00:03:15 any USB external device you're gonna be able to switch between two computers
00:03:15 00:03:18 with this little box from Kensington.
00:03:18 00:03:20 It is the Kensington ShareCentral2
00:03:21 00:03:24 and it's gonna make your whole world a lot simpler you'll thank me for it later, alright?
