Works great with LInux, wireless Logitech mouse, DVI, and USB keyboard

Summary: It simply works. I have 2 Linux systems using this switch. A laptop and a Deskop. I like to switch to a regular keyboard, mouse and monitor when I'm at home with the laptop. It works great. One of the things I didn't realize is the switch works a little differently when you press and let up on the button quickly vs. holding the button down for a few seconds. If you press quickly, it won't always switch all the peripherals.
Good for basic Keyboards and Mice, not for gamers.

Summary: I think this was mentioned in other reviews but if you have a "powered" accessory (IE: My Razor Lycosa keyboard that requires 2 usb ports to work) this KVM is not for you. When the keyboard draws too much power the KVM seems to have trouble dealing with it. Otherwise, It works as advertised!
Summary: The GCS1102 from IOGEAR is a very well built KVM switch that aside from switching keyboard, digital video and mouse, also allows for USB peripheral sharing. The 2 x cables supplied are of good quality as is the Power Adapter which has a rating of 5.3V DC/2.4 Amp and will accommodate input voltages of 100-240V - handy for overseas buyers. You will still need a plug adapter for your local conditions. All in all a mature product that works as advertised.
Summary: Using this with: MacPro 2.66 Quad Core MacBook Pro 2.66 i7 Mac Keyboard Kensington Expert Mouse Getting it into HSM mode can be a little tricky (tech support advised me to try 15 times!) but now that it works: hotkey swap works, AND (most importantly for me) all my Kensington programmed keys are working as well. I had tried a cheaper IOGear with no success, I guess you get what you pay for?
Summary: My wife decided to work from home and has a company supplied system. Rather than buy all new peripherals it was far easier to pick up a KVMP switch and simple switch between the two computers. The functionality is flawless with only minor delay when switching between the machines. All peripherals switch over with no lag spare the monitor which may take a few extra seconds to display. This is a feature of the monitor and not the switch.
Summary: Bought a refurb Dell Win 7 PC but couldn't part with my old reliable XP system, so I bought this switchbox to enable me to use both systems. It works great! Quick & easy set-up, lets me use both systems with a single monitor, mouse & keyboard. The USB/peripherals ports were a big plus - they allow me share my printer & an external USB drive between both PCs as well.
Summary: I was a little reluctant to resort to using a KVM switch because from what I've seen in the past they never seemed to work as promised. But I was in a situation where I had to get a MacBook Pro and a Dell PC to share the same monitor. And the IOGEAR KVMP Switch worked perfectly. It was very easy to set up and switching from Mac to PC is effortless. I'm very happy.
Summary: I bought this to replace a Belkin Flip DVI-D. The Belkin intermittently locked up, preventing me from switching video, and it provided unreliable flickering video at 1920x1200x32bitx60Hertz, despite claiming to support that resolution. I actually tried 2 of the Belkins before giving up, both had the same problems. This IOGear is much better. It supports the high res video I use and it has additional features.
