Summary: Pros: - Works with both Windows 7 and Macbook Air laptops - Works with wireless keyboard and mouse - DVI and audio support - Individual port switching - Shared USB 2.0 support - Keyboard hotkey port switching Cons: - Supplied cables need to be longer at the split end Use: Home office switching between home laptop (Mac) and two work laptops (Windows7) Time in use: 2 months I spent quite a bit of time researching KVM switches.
Summary: Replaced a Belkin SOHO which had become pretty flaky and what a difference! Video much better, better keyboard response and the auto switch is useful. Great product for a very reasonable price. Just hope it lasts ...
Summary: I purchased this KVMP to replace a old Belkin PS2 KVM that I have been using for years. The belkin worked great but I was tired on looking for usb to ps2 adapters and most of the multi-media keyboard functionality was not supported. Although this KVMP is relatively expense (although no where near the most expense), I have been happy with the purchase.
Summary: If you need to share a DVI monitor a mouse and a keyboard between several computers, this is the ideal solution. It works! It even switched bi-directional audio. In my multimedia studio (apart from my music studio), I have four computers, and one monitor. This switch meets all my needs.
Summary: This product was probably my favorite purchase of 2011. It allowed me to reduce four monitors down to one. I waited awhile to see if the thing would last and low and behold it's still working. The problem with any multi port switch is if one port blows you're screwed. The included cables seem to be of sufficient quality. I also have mine plugged into a surge protector with battery backup to try to guard against surges and brown outs.
Summary: Ordered this through Amazon. Delivery was prompt. I have an older 2 port KVM switch from Aten. This was an upgrade for me. Has better features with hotkey buttons for faster switching. I am happy with Aten, their products are quality. No hesitation to recommend this to anyone who needs a good 4 port KVM switch.
Summary: I don't write many product reviews, but when I was looking for a new KVM - my main requirement was that it work with my cordless backlit Logitech K800 keyboard which I am happy to say that it does! There are some other "features" on it though that are a little annoying leave me wanting more. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: 1. Works with Logitech K800 illuminated keyboard!! 2. ATEN technical support is excellent 3. DVI / sound support Cons: 1.
Works great... quality of the cable is exceptional

Summary: You will notice that the amazon verified purchase is NOT listed. That's because I ordered these at work and my company purchased them. Review follows : For what it's worth, I bought five of these for work, (the two port version) and they work great. I am back here again ... this time to order one of the 4 port versions.
