only came with 2 cables of 4 ='(

David L., Newegg
19 April 2013
  • Summary: Hoping D-link will come through for me and send the 2 missing cables. First time ever having an issue with their product. Hoping their support is as good as their name
  • Pros: Good Deal, but detracted 2 eggs due to missing 2 of 4 cables
  • Cons: Missing 2 of the 4 cables necessary to connect 4 PC's to this. Finally opened the box today to install for a project and ='( only 2 cables.

Not bad, not great

Scott H., Newegg
18 January 2011
  • Summary: I have two newer computers and a really nice Bluetooth USB keyboard/mouse cambination that I can't use with this set-up. Looking for an updated USB version but from what Im reading, d-links unit doesn't work.
  • Pros: The keyboard switching is the best feature on these d-link units allowing you to stash the switch and cables away and forget about buttons. Does anyoe else do that? This unit DOES support advanced keyboard functions on wired keyboards.
  • Cons: If you have advanced video cards and monitors, this unit will not recognize higher resolutions (I.e. 1920x1080) you have to disconnect the unit and boot so the computer talks directly to the monitor, then reconnect. The device does not work with wireless keyboards and mice. P/S 2 mice are hard to...

KVM that Works

Anonymous, Newegg
23 September 2010
  • Pros: Worked well when I used it.
  • Cons: Sometimes there is shadow effect on the screen, I don't know if its cables or the KVM switch it self. Hardly noticeable do.

Mouse not reliable at all

Anonymous, Newegg
21 February 2009
  • Pros: Easy to use; nice design
  • Cons: The mouse does not work all the time. I thought it was because I had a USB/ps2 adapter; but even with the pure ps2 mouse it still is very iffy. It worked fine for the first few months; but now I have to use a seperate mouse which defeats the whole purpose of the switch.

sweet as pie

Richard A., Newegg

  • Pros: It set up and worked just the way it was designed to do. This KVM was intented for my mother-in-law who does not know very much about computers and she was able to use it like she was a pro.
  • Cons: It only comes with two sets of cables but it is a four port switch. What is up with that?

Awfull

George M., Newegg
16 September 2008
  • Summary: I contacted D-Link about this and they were glad to replace it as long as I send it to them first and then 4-6 weeks I would get a new one. Yeah, great idea for a person running 3 machines. When I told them that, they basically said "tough".
  • Pros: The only pro I can think of is the ease of switching between machines. That's pretty much it.
  • Cons: Everything else. Video quality is terrible. Even though I said, switching is easy, it's not reliable, sometimes you have to hit the switch button multiple times, before it realizes what you are trying to do (same goes for hot keys). The major problem is, however, the mouse stops working. If the m...

good but...

James G., Newegg
26 August 2008
  • Summary: Layout of jacks and indicator lights is a bit illogical - placement and use would be facilitated if all PC connections were on the same side with indicator LEDs facing the user on the opposite side.
  • Pros: Reliable hot-key switching allows the KVM to be hidden out of sight. Works well on windows, linux and solaris.
  • Cons: VGA quality is lousy but this may be true of all KVMs of this type and in this price range. For systems running at high screen resolutions this KVM is simply not an option.

Money In the Bank

Anonymous, Newegg
18 January 2008
  • Summary: Even though it may not seem to be such a good product but it really is. It has help in may different areas of my life including home/business use. If I really didn't like this product I wouldn't own two. Buy it and enjoy because trust me in the long run it really is "Money in the Bank".
  • Pros: For a small low priced KVM, D-Link DKVM is money in the bank. It allows nice switching between computers as far as picture quality. If your looking for a KVM and you don't really feel like cutting up the credit card afterward then this is what your looking for. It really doesn't get that hot but ...
  • Cons: Hate the fact that the ports are not on the same side. This prevents a problem because since this product looks great I like to stick it on my desk for easy access. In my line of work that presents a problem due to all the wires and movement of people. Only 2 sets of VGA/PS-2 cables what are you ...
