Simple and Easy

  • Excerpt: Great KVM switch, easy to install and works perfectly. Had to go with this model because previous model (IOGEAR GCS922U) does not have the EDID feature to keep a monitor alive when switching to another PC. Highly recommend this KVM switch for those who need DVI/USB/Audio interface switching.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Edid Feature, Supports Wireless Km
  • Cons: None

Worked fine out-of-the-box

Donald T., Newegg
26 December 2015
  • Summary: I currently have it set up with three Macs, and it works great. Recommended purchase.
  • Pros: Set-up was very easy, and everything worked perfectly right out-of-the-box. Unlike some of the previous reviewers, I didn't need to do any voodoo to get the mouse to work properly, and I didn't need to do any firmware updates. So, I'm thinking that the Iogear folk took the previous reviews to hea...

Power-On Detection Fixed

Nayan S., Newegg
29 November 2015
  • Summary: It only took 2 plus years, but Iogear "finally" enabled Power-On detection toggling. A little story to show how Iogear does business: My past experience with Iogear KVMs is that the port stays on that port when the computer is turned off.
  • Pros: One of the better DVI KVMs on the market, even better now with Power-On detection toggling.
  • Cons: Firmware turnaround time needs improvement. I think this is due to internal company management not approving these changes fast enough, not hardware complexity.

Excellent product

  • Excerpt: I'm running 3 computers on this KVM switch. Function is a breeze. I like the option of audio follows/audio doesn't follow-when you switch around systems. Build is solid, this box is worth the money.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up

Doesn't work

Joseph I., Newegg
23 September 2015
  • Pros: Not much
  • Cons: The audio port is so poorly shielded that I can hear constant crackling in my headphones, and the usb ports are so unreliable that my keyboard drops keystrokes and my mouse frequently disconnects and reconnects. I sent it back within 3 hours of getting it.

Should have bought one years ago!

  • Excerpt: This IOGEAR GCS110-4 4-Port KVMP switch is my first purcahse of this type of gear...should have bought one years ago. I had checked out one of the other brands, but the manufacturer's web-site had the same photo and description for two models, very confusing.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Smart Features

Works good

Bruce F., Newegg
10 May 2015
  • Summary: I use this with 4 computers running Windows 7, 8.1, and XP systems. I have a Logitech 510 wireless keyboard and mouse connected to front port and works without problems. Connect to 2.1 speakers and a 1920X1080, 24" LCD. Headset jack in front works great.
  • Pros: Works has advertised. Have been using going on 3 years, works with wireless keyboard and mouse (see note below) speakers and headsets.
  • Cons: Due to its lite weight moves/shifts easy on desk with all cables connected. Due to the order of booting some motherboards will not allow booting up into BIOS at startup. This is common with KVMs and even with some wireless keyboards. Cannot take off points for that but you will need to plug keybo...

OK, but the product needs to resolve some issues.

Dan, Amazon
31 January 2015
  • Summary: My motivation for buying this was needing a DVI KVM but there are some things that people need to be aware of before buying it. 1) You cannot send analog signal though this unit. VGA won't work. It is digital only. A VGA->DVI will not work.
