Summary: I am officially in love with IOGear for making this KVM switch (IOGEAR will you be my valentine for 2016?). I received it today via UPS and as soon as I got it I removed the old CYBEX KVM I had and set this one up. Below I have a list of PROS and CONS. The CONS are probably only on my end because I use some special equipment and would probably not affect 99% of the folks reading this or using the device. PROS 1. The slim line of the Switch is great 2.
Summary: Killer product! I love it. It's so cool to get 2560x1600 resolution on a 30" Dell monitor and be able to switch between several machines (Mac and PC). Everyone should have this setup. It's not cheap though...obviously.
Summary: Yes, expensive, but it just works. I've got a PC on one side, mac air with the active Apple mini-DP to DVI switch (another hundred bucks) on the other side and room for other work machines as well. They talk to a 32" samsung that does 2560x1440, which works well. These things are pretty much rock solid. I got this as an upgrade to the single link model when I got the bigger screen and it works just as well. This has been running for almost 2 months now, 0 issues.
Summary: I've had the switch about four months. I have it switching a Macbook Pro Retina, a Windows laptop, a Windows tower workstation and an Ubuntu Linux workstation. All going to a 2560x1440 Asus monitor using a wired keyboard and mouse. The audio goes to an amplifier and the microphone is a USB Yeti that uses the front USB port. I have the KVM on a side shelf, out of the way of my desktop and I use keyboard keys to trigger the inputs.

Summary: Great Product. The cables associated with it are a little stiff and could be softer but overall a very good product. Can control from the buttons on the from as well a keyboard commands to switch ( very nice feature).

Summary: So far it's doing everything it's supposed to, with 2 wrinkles in my uses. First, while gaming on this KVM, keyboard repeat seems to stop once another key is pressed. This means keying my mic to talk while running stops me in my tracks. Also, strafing sideways while running also stops me in my tracks.
Summary: I have been using this for a couple months now with two Mac Minis (Mini Display Port-Dual Link DVI Adapters) and two PCs with no issues. It has EDID support for WIndows 7 so switching is fast without messing up the other monitors I have hooked up to the PCs.
