Great affordable KVM Switch - Plug n Play - no additional software required

srbruce01, Ebay
31 January 2014
  • Summary: These units are showing up new on eBay for very reasonable prices. I liked the first one so much that as soon as I discovered I could daisy chain them I purchased a 2nd unit. These can be rack mounted to can be used in any location of your choice.

Great KVM + EXPANDABLE!!!!

Daniel D., Newegg
19 May 2013
  • Summary: If you need a basic 8-port KVM with PS2 support - buy his one! If you need an expandable KVM - buy this one! If you need an 8-port KVM, with USB, you might still want this one, and add USB to PS2 adapters for each computer that has USB...
  • Pros: I LOVE THESE!!!!! Not only do they work well, but both the front buttons, and the CTRL-CTRL hot-key menu allow for switching and selecting computers on cascaded switchers! Even works well when going through to a remote KVM over CAT5 via an extender like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?...
  • Cons: None that I have found yet... :-)

great KVM switch

Zac S., Newegg
16 August 2011
  • Summary: Some KVMs do not include a power adapter and so draw power from the PC. If you have a few PCs always connected and powered (or at least in a state where they apply power to the keyboard) this is okay, but otherwise that might push the current capability of a single PC's keyboard port.
  • Pros: Good video quality to 1800*1440 at 75Hz (I have not tested above this point). Easy direct switching (tap ctrl, tap alt, tap shift, tap number, tap enter) or use menu (tap ctrl, tap ctrl -- or tap scroll-lock, tap scroll-lock -- according to a configurable setting). [Seems to insist that the ctrl,...
  • Cons: Blue power LED is irritatingly bright (I covered mine with electrical tape and can *still* see it!). Beeps when switching, but can't turn this on/off in the UI. Another user already pointed out the tiny buzzer can be masked to reduce this beep. Sometimes not responsive (will not switch from the k...

Solid KVM

John F., Newegg
26 August 2009
  • Summary: This is a real good KVM for the money. You could spend more but why.
  • Pros: This KVM has been perfect for me. The only issue has been the shorter cable lengths but its only a very minor one..(not enough for a con). Map out your rack before installing to make sure your cables will reach. I have one installed in a 42u rack, just 3u down from the top (to avoid hitting butto...

So/So

Anonymous, Newegg
21 May 2009
  • Summary: I have several servers running and my trendnet KVM died after a year so I decided to give this one a shot. Everything works on the PS2 side. However one of the newer servers only has a PS2 connection for the keyboard... not the mouse.
  • Pros: SUPER FAST NEW EGG Shipping. Set up fast, decent price, great for PS2 use
  • Cons: PS2 to USB adapters DO NOT WORK! You MUST be using ONLY PS2 connections on all of your equipmment to have any luck. It did now show up with a warranty card, going to have to go to the website and do it. In the instructions there was no mention of how to set up the KVM to fit in the rack, I didn't...

Excellent, look no further

Paul C., Newegg
13 May 2009
  • Summary: Heavy ~ 15lbs, comes with rack mount hardware, power plug, 8 cables - 4 4 footers, 4 ~ 8 or 10 feet. Cables are molded to keep things neat. Back of unit is FEMALE. It accepted another common kvm's cables. BEST MOST USEFUL PIECE OF EQUIMENT I EVER BOUGHT.
  • Pros: You get it all at a great price baby! Cables: (4) that are ~ 4 feet long. (4) more that are 6 or 8 feet long AND does not cause fuzzyness like many "long" cables can - I'm talking desktop computing - not games, movies, or some other visually intensive application. Never f'ed up even once except a...
  • Cons: Beep is annoying and cannot be disabled by the soft menu (On Screen Display aka OSD) Or by any other method. OSD is generic. We have a Linksys or Cisco kvm in the lab and it uses the exact same OSD. I solved this by opening the unit (the speaker is a small penny sized (but thicker) pizzo pc speak...

Perfect

Charles O., Newegg
27 December 2008
  • Summary: I will be buying more of these as needed.
  • Pros: We bought this for our small business after we bought a rack and racked our servers. I am using it with a Dell Console station and all Dell servers. Works like a champ. Zero problems. COMES WITH CABLES!! Various lengths so you can keep the mess down too.
  • Cons: none that I can think off
