Disappointed

Tim K., Newegg
9 November 2007
  • Summary: The wavy lines and interferance described by other users is a problem for my work as well. With a little trouble shooting we discovered it was caused by are optical mice. Switching to an old fashioned ball mouse fixed the visual issues. What a strange connection. I'm very dissapointed.
  • Pros: Looks great.
  • Cons: Doesn't work great

Lacking on High Res....

Anonymous, Newegg
22 November 2006
  • Summary: Perfect for any appliction that does not require high res. Unfortunately, I do, so this one will go into one of my racks and I'll have to keep looking for a better unit for my desk...
  • Pros: Affordable and well built.
  • Cons: Horrible clarity at anything over 1024x768@60hz.

Great KVM / Good value

  • Summary: I got this KVM for our datacenter, and it works great! The On Screen Display is awesome, and you simply cannot go wrong here with this KVM. Only down side is the power light is as bright as an aircraft landing light !!! LOL.. Otherwise it's perfect !

Great for servers poor for mulimedia & games.

  • Summary: I've had this unit for several months in my home office to control 8 servers/PC's. Overall, it works great and is easy to install and setup. It functions just fine for office or server environments. The unit itself is very heavy weight and seems built quite rugged.

Shaky at high res

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: A little shaky on my 17" NEC LCD1765 when at 1280x1024. But, i know it's not the best LCD monitor, and I only have a Radeon 9200 128mb video card in the computer that goes 1280x1024, the rest are at 1024x768 and they are perfect. Overall, I'd recommend it, but it's probably not the best.

IOGEAR MiniView Ultra GCS138 KVM Switch

30 May 2005
  • Summary: Reliable, rackmountable KVM switch. Supports keyboard hot key switching and on screen display. Cascading is possible but the cascaded port led flashes constantly which is a little annoying. Recommended
  • Pros: Rackmountable
  • Cons: Flashing LED if cascading KVMs

  • Summary: This switch works great. Video is excellent and it works fine on Win2000 and several SuSE Linux servers. The PC <font>s</font>election menu is handy too. I will be buying aonther of these for work.
