D-Link DKVM 2KU - Monitor/keyboard/mouse switch - 2 ports external

old salt, Amazon
25 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this item so that I could use one monitor with a new computer. I tried all combinations in setting up the D-Link but it did not switch the monitor from one computer to the other. The light on the D-Link for both the switch and the hot keys, when switching from one computer to the other, only flashed and reverted to one computer - my old computer.

Excellent and versatile

R D Thurlow, Amazon
9 April 2013
  • Summary: Combined with a Lindy USB PS2 Converter, this is working brilliantly. Easy to install, and has the added bonus that as we are using the PS2 mouse and keyboard connections, we use the USB for our printer. Only drawback - don't seem to be able to get 1440x900 pixels when using Windows XP, no problem with Windows 7.

Neat package, but didn't work for me..

FastE, Amazon
12 January 2013
  • Summary: Overall package and price of the product is satisfactory. However, I have a Dell 6430 laptop and a desktop computer with a 23" Samsung LCD monitor and I could not get the Dell laptop (only 2 months old) to display correctly on the monitor i.e. when connected via the D-Link KVM I could not get it to use 1920x1080 resolution which fits the screen perfectly.

Waste of Money

blacksmith46, Amazon
22 May 2012
  • Summary: A complete waste of time, money and effort on my part. It simply does not work and does not rate even one star. If I had the time I would put it up for sale, but then feel very guilty about selling something under false pretences.

What They Don't Tell You

Mr. C. Green "billynibbles", Amazon
7 November 2011
  • Summary: I'm rating this bit of kit quite highly for something that doesn't really work as I wanted. Sure, set-up is easy if a little cluttered. The cables supplied are rather thick and unco-operative, but hey-ho, it's only going to ge down among the 'dust bunnies' behind the computer eh? Well if the 'hot-key' switching worked, that's where it could be left out of sight and out of mind.

D-Link DKVM 2KU

debutler, Amazon
16 October 2010
  • Summary: Keyboard, Monitor and mouse switch Did not work for USB keyboard and mouse. Clearly meant for old style PS-2 connections. There is one USB slot, and despite buying a USB hub so that both keyboard and mouse could connect in, I was unable to get this switch to switch.

It just works

Michael K. "glocal", Amazon
3 July 2010
  • Summary: Prompt delivery, hassle free service. The device looks very robust and works flawlessly. It makes a huge difference when migrating data and software to a new PC. Each time you press the special keyboard shortcuts (scroll-lock twice + a key) or the button on the device to switch between PCs it makes laud-ish beeps which can't be turned off and some people may find annoying (not me though). I didn't need any additional components at all. It just worked out of the box.

Nice piece of kit

RSJ, Amazon
5 April 2010
  • Summary: This does exactly what I require of it. Using PS2 keyboard and mouse I linked the USB port on the switch to a hub which faultlessly provides access for both computers to two printers and an external hard drive. I need this setup to support working from home now I am semi-retired so I have access to our home PC and my work laptop on its docking station. There are no audio connections on the switch but I don't need them.
