Forget Win 7 - no firmware upgrade

Christine Beatty, Amazon
19 January 2015
  • Summary: I bought this back when I had an XP machine. The problem is that Belkin doesn't offer a firmware upgrade for this model, so you're forced to purchase a new model. Given how much these things cost... it's a ripoff. This is the last Belkin KVM I will ever buy.

Not completely compatible with my setup...

Darryl C. "DJC", Amazon

  • Summary: I ran in to problems trying to get video to work consistently with a Mac Mini and a Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter. It worked fine on the PC side. For some reason it just didn't want to play nice with the Mini, so I had to send it back.

Flakey, flakey, flakey!

  • Summary: This unit will operate OK for awhile, but if I need to re-boot one of my machines it invariably takes several reboots before the thing will actually connect mouse & keyboard. Sometimes it goes to another planet and won't recognize any machines.

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...
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Erratic operation Flimsy construction Cables poorly designed Not firmware upgradeable

Some positive, some not as positive

jao "JustAnotherObserver", Amazon

  • Summary: What I like: Seems to work well with my twin 1920 x 1200 monitors, and 10' DVI-D Dual cables. This version of the product is said to support up to 2560 x 1600, implying DVI-D Dual drive, but my present equipment will only support 1920 x 1200 so I can't confirm that.

Disappointed with this one...

Bryan Whitaker, Amazon
6 January 2014
  • Summary: I actually have two other Belkin KVM switchers, and I am not opposed to buying Belkin again, but this one is kind of a loser. First of all, the unit I received was broken...while it does in fact switch the inputs, the Audio icons are all over the place, like it is miswired inside or something.

User Review

  • 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...

Limited Functionality

Realtruck, Amazon
8 May 2013
  • Summary: We bought the KVM to connect the devices in our conference room. It initially worked with at least one of the laptops, but never with the second one that had to have an adapter to convert the VGA signal to DVI. Belkin's website is of no help, and their support system is terrible to use.

Followup to previous post

Gary F., Newegg
2 April 2013
  • 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.
