Poorly designed product.

Tony J., Newegg
22 April 2014
  • Summary: This Belkin KVM finally totally failed. Had same issue as another reviewer, it would constantly alternate between ports 1 and 4. It was maddeningly erratic from day 1, biggest gripe was that it was possible to have it get into a state where the only way to restore correct operation was to unplug every USB connector from the KVM and remove power, then restart every connected machine.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Erratic operation

User Review

ThePanther, Walmart

  • Summary: First of all, I purchased this unit from Walmart, and I got it for less than anywhere else... including eBay! Walmart delivered quickly and their return policies are great, so I highly recommend. This product has the potential of being one of the best values in KVM switches... It supports 2560X1440, it has a convenient footprint, AND it comes with cables... WOW a great value...

Followup to previous post

  • Summary: Sadly, another company I once relied on very much for their innovative products and their reliability and support, has apparently gone awol. My new router will also be another brand.
  • Pros: Great concept with DVI, USB and included cables.
  • Cons: See my previous review. Reliability and support. Went back and forth with Belkin tech support after unit video died. They finally gave up and pushed me up to a supervisor promising a call BEFORE Christmas. Over four months later that supervisor call has never come.

Expensive lemon from the very beginning

Kevin M., Newegg
2 December 2012
  • Summary: Overpriced for something that does NOT work for what was advertised. Bait and switch. Now Belkin only mention support for 1920x1200. They realized engineering failed them and that this product does not work at any resolution higher than 1920x1200. What do they do? Update all the manuals.
  • Pros: Nice button layout. Have ability to separate audio independent of the video/pc source.
  • Cons: False advertisement. Original manuals reference support up to 2560x1600 resolution. Lots of back and forth with tech support (with steps to perform resets, blah blah. Eventually said that it will not work with the Dell 3007WFP.

Well three out of the four ports work

Anonymous, Newegg
30 October 2011
  • Summary: I'm really disappointed in Belkin. This is not the first Belkin product I've purchased with questionable quality but it will most likely be the last.
  • Pros: The ports that work work well. I have one of them on my gaming rig running at 1920x1200 and I cannot notice the difference in the screen or mouse response while playing games.
  • Cons: One of the four ports does not work. Unfortunately I didn't need that port until recently so I didn't notice before the warranty expired. I guess shame on me for not testing them all when I got it.

A WAISTE OF MONEY

Michael B., Newegg
17 April 2011
  • Summary: I have been using the IOGEAR DVI switch along side this one. (I have several computers that I have built. The IOGEAR has been dependable with little or no problems. Unfortunately I acquired the Belkin prior to the IOGEAR.
  • Pros: When it works it works great.
  • Cons: Had problems with this unit right from the start. First; you have to waite for the switch to recognize the computer that is on. Which in itself is not immediate, and takes a few seconds. If you switch from one computer to another, you may loose your keyboard, mouse, or the monitor connection. You have to either reboot, or completely shut down and boot.

More Problems

  • Summary: Don't Buy even though Newegg's price is only 60% of Belkins
  • Pros: Looks good, controls are simple
  • Cons: I got this from Belkin. It worked fairly well for one day. On the second day it would not recognize my monitor. On the third day, it would not even power up.

Still Problems

George J., Newegg
6 April 2011
  • Pros: Great KVM. Belkin has fixed the resolution problem that others have reported, but the KVM has problems waking a sleeping computer when it is selected from another operating machine. I love the layout and have used Belkin KVMs for almost a decade. They have proven extremely reliable
  • Cons: As I said there are still problems with the selection program to allow keyboard waking of a sleeping computer
