Summary: Highly recommended for running a secure local PC and a second networked PC.. Awesome for older PS/2 based input devices.
Pros: Pretty nifty device. Allowed me to interact with two different PC towers with the same mouse, keyboard, and monitor. Does what it says. The keyboard hotkeys make it nicer. Don't have to have the switch in visible sight.
Cons: Not so great if your PC's use USB or Bluetooth input devices.
Summary: I used this product to connect two desktop PC's at work, one running XP one running ME and it works great, easy switching via the hotkey with only the tiniest of delay. The only problem I have found is the mouse cursor doesn't work on start up of the PC running XP, it needs to be restarted before it...
Summary: Been using this switch for a few weeks now, and not had any problems with it. It does reduce the picture quality very slightly at higher refresh rates, but stick to 85Hz and lower and it's perfectly acceptable. The only annoying thing is the beep.
Summary: I have used this product off and on for over a year and it has caused me no end of problems. It doesn't seem to like anything other than the most basic keyboard and two button mouse. I am constantly having to reboot one or both of my PCs after switching.
Summary: It is easy to use and cheap, but there was significant ghosting on the monitor, and the keyboard and mouse only worked with one machine (I am using a laptop and desktop running Xp and Vista respectively).
Summary: I used it to connect a PC and an old Acorn RiscPC to a monitor. I deliberately chose a KVM with s physical switch as well as keyboard activation and this paid off as the RiscPC needs to sense the devices within a second or so of powering on.
Summary: What a brilliant piece of kit! Having bought a new (faster) desktop I still had use for my old one. Having only one screen and an empty bank balance I needed something to link my two destops together. The D-Link KVM switch worked straight out of the box. Simple to install and use.
Pros: I don't and can't say to much about this device except that I was sceptical when I purchased it. However, the unit took me by total surprised and worked right at the start and I was pleasently surprised. Plenty of cable to mount the unit anywhere. Pleasing to the eye, and easy to use.
Cons: offle, i had this for 3 weeks and it craped out on me, at 1st it was great and then it started acting up and eventually stoped swtiching i thought going with "D-Link" i would be pleased, they proved me wrong. find something else.
Summary: I never thought I'd need more than two ports, but now I do (a "boomerang" kid) so in retrospect, I probably should have bought a 4 port model. I got mine over a year ago on a rebate for about $8
Pros: Easy to setup and use. And the cables are nice and long if your PC's are far apart.
Cons: Mine has just started losing the mouse after a couple of switches, which is kind of a pain. But, thanks to AMD_GAMER, all I have to do is hit scroll lock + scroll lock + m and I'm back in business.
