Does anyone have any decent experience with USB KVM switches?

All I want (how hard can this be!) is to share a USB Mouse and Keyboard (mouse plugged into keyboard) with a PC and a Mac.

PS/2 KVMs are a dime a dozen.

Does this (http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=529134&CatId=202) look like it would do the job? Seems terribly cheap compared the other others... Although I guess it has no USB cables included, so that's the more expensive part.

Or this (http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1175067&CatId=202) is a more expensive option, but looks a little more trustworthy...

IOGear (or is it Belkin) make one - I think they sell it at Future Shop and Staples.
