It works, but...
It's not free. There are better free alternatives.
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.

You missed the point of the software.RDP requires you to launch a connection and it opens the other computers screen on your desktop.
This software is intended to quickly and simply move your mouse and keyboard commands to another computer just by moving the mouse off the side of the screen. You would use the other computer's monitor to see what you are doing and what's on that computer. There are lots of reasons to do this.
crossover...Win7 64-bit & Vista 32-bit
occasionally loses connection over wireless network with secondary (vista) PC
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

Unobtrusive, simple to use, simple to set up.
Hot Keys don't always work.
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&.
Cross windows platform [64bit and 98]
fairly easy set up
doesn't always auto-reconnect laptop
had to re-install once, shortcut and exe stopped "working", reinstalling was easier than troubleshooting
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

none that i can see
unable to set it up
disappointed. Futzed with it, read everything i could find, tried everything recommended, but was never able to get it to work. Not even a little. Very frustrating waste of time. Thanks for asking.
Efficient and simple: just do what it need to do. Stable and light!
NOne from me
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.
Wish the full version was free or a little cheaper, but for the money it was worth it too
Nothing to like yet
Can't get it to work
Maybe if I could get it to work on my Win 7 64 bit computer I would be able to give an accurate critique
Just downloaded Multiplicity Pro -
Real easy to setup
Have not seen any system degredation so far
Can still use original mouse and keyboard for individual computers if you want
None - software works well
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.
None because this program costs money when there is an open source alternative.
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.
