Doesn't work

Anonymous, Newegg

  • 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....

So far not so good.

  • Summary: I hate having to wait for an RMA'd product. Takes 2-3 weeks from the time I ship it back to the time I get a new one. Will start looking at retail store first from now on.
  • Pros: Appeared to work fine at first.
  • Cons: After a few hours one channel began to intermittently loose video. Had to RMA. Will see if the new one works better.
