Setup for failure

William E., Newegg

  • Summary: If you have a mouse and keyboard that work with this switch, it works pretty well. But figuring out if you have a compatible keyboard and mouse appears to be nearly impossible.
  • Pros: This device is built like a tank. From my experience with the 4 port version of the switch I used in a different installation, I know that if you can get these switches to work, they are smooth and trouble free once you get them up and running.
  • Cons: I know from experience that setting up an IOGEAR switch can be a challenge. The best setup procedures (search on boot with focus) aren't in the manual. You have to go online to find the procedure. I followed the boot with focus setup procedure and it became obvious pretty quickly that the keyboar...

Good switch

  • Summary: My wife starting working from home, so I needed a switch to allow her to switch from my desktop to her laptop dock so she could use our office desk during the day for work.

New design is inconvenient

BC, B&H Photo
4 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Works fine with four computers and an HP ZR2740w dual link monitor. I had Iogear's previous version which was not dual link so I had to get this to use with my new higher resolution monitor.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Inconvenient

Works well if you use Iogear products. but NOT if it isn't IOGEAR.

Kamemaster, Amazon
23 July 2014
  • Summary: Works fine if you have a Iogear mouse and keyboard. Does not work well with other brand keyboards or wireless mice. Not happy that I can not use with my SILENT mice or Silent keyboard. Upgraded to this DVI model from a Belkin 4 port switcher. The DVI was the decider of getting this.
