Awesome KVM for Dual Monitor PCs

G8trzFan, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: So far it blows away my IOGEAR. The response with hotkeys is very fast, faster than my IOGEAR. I had to order a USB Video adapter because my laptop only came with one VGA port so I am stuck with my 24" monitor and the little 17" laptop monitor. I am hoping by adding the USB Video adapter, it will allow me to use my other 24" monitor, for a total of 3, instead of the 2 monitors (laptop and 1 LED) I am using now.

ATEN 4port dual monitor

Jeremy P., Newegg

  • Pros: This is a nice product. I love it it will switch both monitors, USB, Sound together or individually. It works great with my keyboard and wireless mouse.
  • Cons: The biggest con to me is not with the KVM itself but trying to get different PCs to work with it using just dual VGA. 2 of my PCs are fine. But my Lenovo Laptop which has 2 DVI-D only ports and 2 DisplayPorts is a pain. I let me do one DVI-D and a DisplayPort to VGA converter but not 2 by them selves. And another PC I have a high in graphics card with 1 HDMI, 1 Display Port, and 1 DVI-I. The DVI-I is easy as it has a converter to VGA, but if I do Display-Port to VGA f...

awesome

  • Summary: tried other dual monitor kvms that would either hang, lose communication w mouse or keyboard after switching computers using the quick key commands-very annoying. this one works perfectly AND using it with ps2 connections. included usb adapter works perfectly as well. One issue is that i can only use the numbers on TOP of keyboard, not the keypad when using quick key commands: scroll lock, scroll lock NUMBER enter.. other than that, smooth sailing.

Great except for keyboard interface

  • Summary: Update: 09 Dec 2011--I finally discovered how to correct the problem of "sticky" keys. Apparently Windows 7 has keyboard properties settings set for relatively fast "Repeat delay" and "Repeat rate". Generally these settings work well if your keyboard is plugged directly into a computer rather than going through a KVM switch, but cause the symptoms described below in my original review if you're going through a KVM switch.

Dual VGA KVM works great

JohnK-Seattle-WA, Amazon
29 June 2008
  • Summary: I bought this dual-monitor KVM for home about 6 months ago. I've used a number of different KVMs over the years, PS/2 and KVM, and both at home and work, but this was the first one with dual monitor support. It was pretty expensive but it was one of the few dual-monitor KVMs I could find. It has a nice low profile and comes in a sturdy metal case with rubber edges (very similar design to an old IOGear I used to have).
