  • Pros: Easy to install, works as advertised for a fraction of the price of an "enterprise" unit. USB powered, so do not need a free electrical socket.

Easy to Switch

  • Summary: I won't subtract a star for the length of the cables because i've been dealing with KVM's for years and yet to have found a mfg. to provide cables long enough to meet most peoples needs.

Solid but unhandy for X Windows

Gary L. Roach, Amazon
5 September 2012
  • 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?
  • Pros: All cables included, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Price
  • Cons: PC selector

Fit for most purposes

Sjur Richard Uppheim, Amazon
22 August 2013
  • Summary: There's not a big selection of these KVM switches, so if you're stuck with VGA screens these will do the job. I think the PS/2 version is better since switching from one PC to the next happens instantly.
