Summary: My fault for missing NewEgg's 30-day return policy, but ATEN just shrugged their shoulders and I'm now stuck with a KVM switch that doesn't work. Buyer beware.
Pros: None. It didn't work for me.
Cons: Tried to connect two Dell Precision workstations running Windows XP. Switching worked fine for the video, but the systems did not recognize the USB keyboard nor mouse connected through the KVM. ATEN tech support blamed it on the systems being incompatible.
Summary: maybe i just got unlucky and got a bad switch but the experience was painfull enough i will re-order another DVI switch from another company instead. no more ATEN switches for me. at this price point these switches should be tested before leaving the factory.
Pros: Looks nice on desk. Graphic clarity / sharpness of text is very good. really like the addition of the light on the remote switch.
Cons: It didn't work on my second pc. worked on the first one but had some trouble at first setting up my wireless mouse and keyboard. eventually it got setup and worked well on pc #1. rebooted into pc #2 for first time and it simply would not recognize my wireless mouse or keyboard. drivers installed ok. i then tried to pull the usb receiver out of the port to try another and literally had to use pliers to get it out. when i finally did my usb receiver was in three pieces....
Pros: Had this up and running within minutes after the UPS man dropped it off. Switching between a Mac Mini and a Ubuntu Linux PC. Zero problems. The included small remote was a nice surprise. I didn't realize it came with one. Remote even has a little rubber pad on the bottom to keep from scooting across a slippery desk. Overall the package is better then what I was expecting.
Summary: Mostly works as advertised, but: - Configuration is complicated - Doesn't work with a 1920 x 1080 monitor extending a laptop display. If I move mouse or a window to the right edge of the screen it goes black. This works fine in 1440 x 900, but defeats the point of the large monitor.
Summary: I have this connected to 2 home built computers with Geforce Nvidia cards and the quality of the video is excellent. I've read where people have had problems but I've seen none. I've used all the connections, audio in and out, video, mouse and keyboard and all work well. The audio also is excellent.
Pros: Works well. Has a light on the switch to ensure you are looking at correct computer. Has DVI, USB and audio connectors.
Summary: Super little KVM, works like a charm. One leg does cause brand new monitor to show lines of green pixels from time to time, but it's only a minor annoyance. Not enuff of a problem to detract from it's use.
Functions great, compact slick design, very convenient - perfect solution

Summary: Excellent product, switching seamlessly the DVI display + USB keyboard + USB mouse + sound, with a touch of a button or DBL clickin the middle mouse button. Switch action is very fast, and PCs (laptops) on both ends act is if still connected. Compact and light, slick design, made my desk much more organized and better looking, overall.
