Excerpt: NEEDED SOME SPECIAL SWITCHES. PURCHASED ADDITIONAL CPU AND DID NOT WANT ANOTHER MONITOR, THE COMPUTER TECH WAS HELPFUL AND LOOKED UP WHAT I NEEDED AND ORDERED. PERFECT SOULTION AND BEST OF ALL THE WHITE SWITCH HAS A YELLOW BAND ON ONE SIDE AND A GREEN ON THE OTHER BOTH WITH MATCHING COLORED LIGHT.
Excerpt: I like this KVM switch because it actually has a wired remote (the one I owned previously switched between computers using a keystroke combination).Another item to note is that one set of the cables is much shorter than the other, but that does not negatively affect my usage.
Excerpt: Bought this to replace an existing Cables To Go 4 port switch. Did not need 4 ports any more and though this would take up less space. Attached two laptops with the device. First thing I noticed was screen flicker on one of the ports. Just though it might be the laptop so I swiched ports.
Excerpt: This KVM Switch is awesome. I had a little difficulty purchasing this item through Staples. First I went to the local Staples store and they didn't carry it (you can't sell something if you don't have it) so then if I wanted it I had to order it on-line so I did.
Summary: Does exactly what it says, only downside is keyboard switching is not available in non-Windows operating systems. Since I only run Linux, I have to press the button.. but it's still a remote button so I can keep the switch hidden out of sight.
