Nice product.

Rae S., Newegg

  • Summary: The option to not switch the audio is nice. Take note of the fact that the switch is intended for use with a PS/2 keyboard and a USB mouse.
  • Pros: This is a well designed product with excellent features and documentation. I use it for switching between a Windows (7 or Vista) and a Linux (SUSE 11.2) system with a 1920x1200 60Hz monitor. There have been no problems.
  • Cons: The remote switch (which I do not use because I prefer to use the keyboard for switching) is sensitive to static electricity discharges.

User Review

  • Summary: About 1 year after purchase, the USB ports stopped switching. I contacted ATEN, and they repaired it free of charge even though the warrantee had expired 1 week earlier.
  • Pros: DVI, AV & 2 USB Connections. Convenient remote switch.
  • Cons: Cables could stand to be a bit longer, especially the audio cables and USB connections to the computers. The configuration works well on a desktop computer, but not for a laptop because of the short cable length.

Works Great

  • Summary: The price jumped 25 dollars after I bought mine. I doubt I would pay the extra money for this KVM
  • Pros: I have been using this product for 7 months now and have not had any problems.
  • Cons: I just wish the cables were a little bit longer

Terrible - Do NOT buy!

Yong K., Newegg
17 January 2010
  • Summary: Spend more money and get a quality kvm switch! They don't even hold good on their warranty unless you have the anti-theft, plastic retail packaging that I'm guessing most people just tear open and throw away.
  • Pros: Works for a few days.
  • Cons: 2nd DVI connection breaks for no reason and then Aten as well as NewEgg will NOT give me a replacement despite the fact that I have a receipt and it's less than 2 months old!
