    "Just use Windows7 Remote Desktop Connection."

    April 7, 2013  |   By hk2000

    Version: Multiplicity 2.01

    Pros

    It works, but...

    Cons

    It's not free. There are better free alternatives.

    Summary

    I don't see why you would need this if you have windows 7. Remote desktop is more versatile and free. I use it all the time to control my HTPC while I'm working on my desktop workstation- including controlling where the audio is playing. If you have Win7 on all your PC's, just read about Remote Desktop Connection and learn how to use it, you'll be glad you did.

    "this thing is so COOL"

    January 25, 2013  |   By Paulyg1

    Version: Multiplicity 2.01

    Pros

    crossover...Win7 64-bit & Vista 32-bit
    easy install
    seamless transition

    Cons

    occasionally loses connection over wireless network with secondary (vista) PC

    Summary

    this product is just about the best thing since sliced bread.

    I was switching the wireless dongle between my 2 PCs until I broke down and got another wireless keyboard and mouse. 2 days after I hooked up the new mouse, I found this on Cnet's site. NOw, I have an extra wireless set. :)

    Works great, just move the cursor off the R-side of the primary screen and voila, it's operating the secondary.

    Helps keep my already cluttered desk a little cleaner.

    NOW, if they could come out with something that automatically switched my main monitor when I switch between PCs. lol

    Updated on Jan 25, 2013

    Also, to go from the secondary PC back to your primary, just move the cursor past the Left edge of the screen.

    "Wonderful little program"

    December 28, 2012  |   By jhep3304

    Version: Multiplicity 2.01

    Pros

    Unobtrusive, simple to use, simple to set up.

    Cons

    Hot Keys don't always work.

    Summary

    I use a Win7 and also WinXP based computer with a tailless mouse and keyboard. Previously I had to switch the USB receiver from one to the other. Multiplicity solved that problem so it's not just a matter of holding the shift key and moving to cursor to the edge of the screen to enable both on the other computer. I only wish I had this when I was transferring files from the old XP to the new Win&.

    "Multiplicity 2.0, Does EXACTLY what I wanted"

    December 1, 2012  |  

    Version: Multiplicity 2.01

    Pros

    Cross windows platform [64bit and 98]
    fairly easy set up
    very stable

    Cons

    doesn't always auto-reconnect laptop
    had to re-install once, shortcut and exe stopped "working", reinstalling was easier than troubleshooting

    Summary

    I was using 2 sets of keyboard/mouse for home PC and work laptop sharing a desk. I kept personal computing on the home PC and telecommuting with work laptop. Multiplicity is a dream come true, not exaggerating. It seamlessly crosses over from one computer to the other. I've got the PC with monitor and the laptop using dual monitor [laptop display plus additional monitor]. Multiplicity works virtually seemlessly. I often have to force the laptop to reconnect because it gets removed from my home net almost daily. On top of all that, its FREE. haven't had need or opportunity to use across more than 2 computers.
    I use it on an i7 Windows 64bit laptop and a ancient 2003 Win XP Dell Dimension 4550

    Updated on Dec 1, 2012

    Cross platform meant 64bit Windows 7 and 98

    "does what it promises"

    February 19, 2010  |   By hamsterbytes54

    Version: Multiplicity 1.21

    Pros

    I like that it works as promised. It is easy to understand. As easy as when I was using 2 monitors. using 2 computers to do more things as if they were one. I have had little problems with other products from stardock and have receive great support.

    Cons

    Wish the full version was free or a little cheaper, but for the money it was worth it too

    "Can't find whether it supposed to work for Win 7 64 bit"

    February 9, 2010  |   By Michael_Vlll

    Version: Multiplicity 1.21

    Pros

    Nothing to like yet

    Cons

    Can't get it to work

    Summary

    Maybe if I could get it to work on my Win 7 64 bit computer I would be able to give an accurate critique

    "Multiplicity Pro Rocks"

    December 13, 2009  |   By racerick1

    Version: Multiplicity 1.21

    Pros

    Just downloaded Multiplicity Pro -
    Easy download
    Real easy to setup
    Works great
    Have not seen any system degredation so far
    Can still use original mouse and keyboard for individual computers if you want

    Cons

    None - software works well

    Summary

    I was a little leery after reading some of the reviews here but decided to chance it- Running 3 computers with 6 monitors- works like a champ - took me a grand total of maybe 10minutes to download on all 3 computers and configure. Wish I'd found this software earlier instead of using switch past 2 years. Cleaned up my desk a ton. Have had no problems what-so-ever so far.

    "Synergy is better"

    October 6, 2009  |   By Geewiz

    Version: Multiplicity 1.21

    Pros

    None because this program costs money when there is an open source alternative.

    Cons

    Costs money

    Summary

    I agree with the other gent that said use Synergy. I have been before ever seeing his recommendation. There's a CNet video on it. It works with Mac, hell it may be old since its last version, but it works on my desktop and laptop both running student copies of Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, so its practically future proof and actually works with 64-bit. Adobe Flash doesn't even do that.
