One major problem I know of is that the keyboard having it's power
Glitch badly, each time you switch the switch on the cheapest units,
causes bad problems.  Including sometimes blowing the keyboard fuses (2A
microfuse) on the motherboard, which is a pain (& sometimes voids the
warranty if you repair it yourself.)

So, the very cheapest solution to these, is to just isolate the 5V
supply from the connected computers, and supply a nice 9V or so DC as
input to a 7805 (or similar) regulator inside the switchbox.  This can
be as cheap as $5, and make a large difference.
