Unfortunately it does not work with all Dell PowerEdge w/ Solaris 10

N. Nguyen, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: To put it simply, this product does not work. I have the KVM switch connected to 4 Dell PowerEdge servers running Sun Solaris 10 and the standard Dell keyboard and mouse. I previously used a 2-port KVM switch from IOgear on these same devices and everything worked except for the fact that I could only have 2 servers connected at any one time. I chose this KVM switch thinking everything should be the same but now I would have 4 ports. I was WRONG.

Fails expectations

Scott P. Stewart, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: 1. Easy to hook up. 2. Works 90% of time. 3. Even though I am quite disappointed, I'm not aware of a much better product out there. (Where are you engineers?) Cons: 1. Will *not* work with non-standard mice and keyboards. This means only 2 buttons and wheel for mice and no multi-media buttons on your keyboard. I find this quite annoying. 2.

LOCKS-UP all the time and IOGEAR says that is NORMAL

DigitalHW Designer "Eric", Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: This KVM will lock up about once a day when the computers are inactive and will not respond to any user input (video, mouse, keyboard, button on the unit etc...) The only way to fix it is to unplug the unit (no power button to turn it off/on either). I called IOGEAR and they said this lockup is NORMAL. They are trying to blame the problem on the computer saying I need to turn on WakeOnLan setting...

Best Display Quality

Hardware_Geek, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a setup where I use two laptops and a desktop, so I thought it would be nice to share a monitor/keyboard/mouse so I started shopping for a good KVM switch. I even tried a generic docking station as part of the configuration, docking station was junk but the IOGear KVM is a decent replacement of the docking station. For the KVM, I actually tried one from Best Buy and if was decent but the response from the mouse was a little slow and it got annoying.
