Excellent KVM switch

JurekM, Amazon
10 January 2015
  • Summary: This is an excellent switch. All computer-side cables are in the back which makes it much more convenient than other designs where cables come out on all sides. The console keyboard and mouse connectors are in the front.

N R., Newegg

Good unit.

JG, Amazon
30 September 2014
  • Summary: Have had this for a while now. It replaced an old Belkin PS2 KVM that desperately needed replacing. This new unit has been very solid switching from my different PCs. On rare occasion, my wireless usb mouse loses connectivity and I have to unplug the small USB receiver and plug it back in (hence the...

almost works

Sumner H., Newegg
19 March 2014
  • Summary: My wireless Logitech M310 mouse *almost* works. The buttons and scroll wheel work, but moving the mouse right to left moves the cursor up and down. Moving it up and down does nothing. Works find plugged in directly. Can someone tell me which wireless mice work? I'm not attached to this one.
  • Pros: Nicely built, good value, great features. Video looks reasonable.
  • Cons: Picky about mice. A wired IBM branded mouse didn't work at all (works fine connected directly). A wireless Logitech almost works (see below), a wired Dell mouse works perfectly. The Logitech m710 wireless keyboard/mouse doesn't work at all (as expected).

Never a Problem

Wei Z., Newegg
5 October 2013
  • Summary: If there were an upgraded version with more recent USB standards and/or more robust wireless input device support, I'd upgrade in a heartbeat. I'm very happy with the unit in my current PC and Mac setup.
  • Pros: Very versatile. allows the user to switch USB accessories, audio & video feed along with keyboard, video and mouse or not, as needed.
  • Cons: USB 1.1. rather than USB 2 (or now 3) A USB cordless mouse or keyboard may not work with the dongle in the keyboard or mouse ports, but work for me in either of the two vanilla USB ports. Minus an egg for that.

Excellent KVMP

Wave, Amazon
6 March 2013
  • Summary: This unit has a very high build quality and will let your display sleep properly, unlike some others. I've since upgraded to the 4 port version, but still have this 2 port one handy.
