Summary: This was definitely a case of 'you get what you pay for'. I originally tried to save a pretty significant amount of money by going with the Star Tech 2 Port Dual DVI USB KVM Switch with Audio (you can see my review for that device on its page).
Summary: Ive gone through three KVM switches, from various brands in the past.. all buggy in some fashion. Recently made this purchase, and has been working great, It was easy to set up, given the included cables.

Summary: Small control-hub style device that works beautifully between my 'on-the-go' tiny Dell laptop (2lbs) (through a docking station) and my behemoth mondo-computing power desktop (a million pounds, because I want the GHz's).
Summary: I purchased this IO Gear Dual view unit only to switch 2-screens between 2-computers. I specify this because others who have reviewed this product have criticized the sometimes failure of fully switching their keyboard or mouse.
Summary: I can only give two stars because when it works, its 5 star, but I've had too much trouble with it, and so it gets 2 stars. I am running two IPS displays at 2560x1440 and when they work its great.

Summary: It works, most of the time, with a wired keyboard and mouse... I purchased this based on the reviews. It arrived as promised and seemed to work fine at first. Then I started noticing delays in typing, long pauses between mouse clicks, etc.

Summary: I was quite pleased with the KVM since I purchased it. I'm running against two NEC ES261WM monitors at 1600x1200 resolution via DVI connections. Recently, I upgraded machines and as a gamer, decided to add a second (AMD) video card to run in Crossfire mode.

Summary: It is great to use two 1920x1200 DVI monitors with multiple computers ! Only issue that I had initially is that it did not transmit the (pretty essential) signal to rotate objects in Solidworks (wheel press + mouse movement) -- at first I used two mice but then I called IOgear customer support who...
Summary: NOT FUTUREPROOF! I've had this device for a bit over two years now, and so long as you don't change a thing from when you bought it, it will work fine. HOWEVER... We're in a world of wireless keyboards and mice these days. IOGear even sells their own.
