Which usb hub/splitter is best for 2 PCs printing to 1 printer?

Feb 18, 2014
After reviewing many usb hub/splitters for use to print from 2 PCs to 1 Hp officejet 6500 printer I need some advice on which one to select. (The wireless option on this printer has never worked after many hours of internet HP tech effort.)

The auto version seems more complex requiring driver downloads and spliter software support, while the manual version apparently requires no software additions and, after wired connection, requires only to press a button to active the desired PC to print.

Am I missing any pertinent info regarding the setup and operation of such splitters?

All I need is an easy to install device that is reliable and useable by non-techy types like my wife and me.
