  • 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.

Nice little KVM

  • Summary: Works nicely, wasn't expecting much from the audio switching but it's fine. The cables supplied are of an adequate length if you put the unit on top of the computers you're switching between.

  • Pros: All cables included, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Price

Excellent KVM

18 July 2009
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a year old cheap 4 port Belkin unit which was touchy from day one, and refused to select the other three inputs, despite being thumped firmly on occasion. It uses special cables which reduces cable mess, but doesn't let you reuse old ones, which is a shame as those supplied...

Fit for most purposes

Sjur Richard Uppheim, Amazon

  • 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.
