Does not work with Logitech!

Michael S., Newegg
29 June 2012
  • Summary: This KVM works well if you have 2 XP computers and using a wired USB mouse and keyboard. But it will never work with any Logitech product according to there tech support. So i got a Kensington wireless keyboard and mouse. Same exact issue. They say its compatible but its really not.
  • Pros: Fast switch between workstations
  • Cons: Does not work with Logitech or wireless keyboards and mice.

Major video problem

Karl K., Newegg
4 August 2010
  • Pros: This KVM looks good on paper, with the features most people would need... controls two PCs with a single USB keyboard and mouse, also switches audio, hotkey control, fairly long cables.
  • Cons: Unfortunately, the KVM would NOT correctly pass the video from my second (brand-new) PC to my (fairly top-end) CRT monitor. The monitor complained that the horizontal scan rate was too high, then shut off. It did this no matter which of the two ports I tried. But the monitor works just fine conne...

Not impressed!!!

Computer W., Newegg
14 July 2010
  • Summary: I've used many KVMs, and this is the worst one I've ever used. I realize that a USB KVM might have some issue if a pc is really dated, but even on new machines this KVM rarely works correctly. I bought 7 of these for our new shop..
  • Pros: *keeps resolution
  • Cons: *switching function rarely works - to get it to switch, it generally takes plugging one machine in at a time, which defeats the purpose of the KVM!! *takes pc's forever to install mouse and keyboard...if they ever do - some pc's do not support USB mouse or keyboard in BIOS, I know that, I'm stric...

Gets the Job Done

Nicholas P., Newegg
29 June 2010
  • Summary: This replaced a KVM that was failing which only picked up the mouse and keyboard as generic devices. This KVM actually allows me to utilize all the functions of my Microsoft keyboard and logitech trackman wheel which I love.
  • Pros: It allows the keyboard and mouse to be independently detected by the computer and only uses one USB port on each computer. It's simple, has integrated cables, and gets the job done. The hot key is also quick to respond and switches immediately.
  • Cons: I would prefer a button as well as hot keys just in case

Perfect KVM (for D-sub/HDB-15)

Adelbert C., Newegg
17 November 2009
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a Belkin Flip KVM that was annoying because my monitor was not recognized through the KVM and the resolution always defaulted to a standard resolution (and could not even be changed to the optimum resolution unless I plugged the monitor directly into the computer --...
  • Pros: It works (sad, but cannot say the same for some other KVMs); passes through EDID info so the monitor resolution stays as it should when computers are powered on; nice implementation of keyboard hotkeys for control functions; has audio too; good price.
  • Cons: None found yet.
