Summary: Wanted to reduce the amount of clutter in our telco closet by having our security DVR and site PC share a keyboard, mouse and monitor. This Belkin KVM made it super easy and so far it works great. The cable connections are color coded green or orange, the push button switch and LED's are color coded to match. Just plug in the USB and VGA connections, hook up your devices and you are good to go!
Summary: This switch works great for switching from one computer to another. I work from home and with this switch, it allows me to use my work laptop and my home pc with only one monitor. I would recommend using this KVM switch.
Summary: the ones that use ps1/2 keyboard connections work great. however this one using usb keyboard connection will never return control to the keyboard of one system when switching between systems. not worth the time or trouble.
Summary: This switch allowed me to use two separate computers [one company issued for home office, and the other personal] with one keyboard, mouse, and monitor, by pressing a switch, exactly as advertised.
