Summary: This device works well and is a good buy for the money. But, there are two problems. The first is the layout. To make the device more compact, Avocent put connectors on all 4 sides of the enclosure. This makes it really unhandy for mounting.
Excerpt: I got this to replace my DVI KVM, as all my work PCs were replaced with non-DVI laptops. Fast, easy to set up, ans small. 1 cable for KVM, 1 cable for audio (I don't use those). <br /><br />The only thing I don't like about this?

Summary: Comments about Avocent SwitchView 100 4-Port PS/2 KVM Switch: relatively cheap for it's function, however in comparison with other models I've previously used (switchview 4, etc.) this model lacks a bit in technical and ease.
