Excerpt: This dual monitor two computer KVM is well built and the set-up instructions are clear. The switch functions without problem but the instructions are not quite what they should be. Firstly, the plugs marked for computer "A" really are those for computer "B" and vice versa!
Pros: Easy To Set Up, This switch is a sturdy, Works without problem
Summary: I had trouble recognizing all my devices with the less expensive switches. This one plugged in and everything worked right away. The fact that they include all the cabling is a bonus. Very nice product.
Summary: As of this post New Egg does not list the supported OS by the device. IOGear support sucks. After contacting IOGear support and explaining my problem and checking 2 things the support person asked what OS I was running on, after support learned the OS they responded and I quote "We do not support...
Pros: Supports dual screens for both computers
Cons: Under Windows 7 regardless of the computer being viewed, the device will reset itself anywhere from 1-90 minutes. Some times after a reset some or all of the devices lockup or shut down forcing a system reboot and lose of work. On average I lose 1 hour per day due to the device resets, not includ...
Excerpt: With this device there is no need to buy extra monitors or power down and switch cables when using two desktop computers. Simply push a button (or use the Hot Keys option) and you can toggle between boxes. Easy to set up and use and takes up very little space on my table.
Excerpt: I have been struggling with 3 mechanical switch boxes to bounce between my two dual monitor Macs. The video switches, after a few weeks, began to fail. The contacts became faulty and the monitors displayed incorrect colors or incorrect luma. I had to manipulate the switch to get a near decent image.
Summary: No heat problems here... I have it fully loaded with USB and it is stone cold. I'm not using the external power supply and never have (still in box), so maybe that is why I'm not having that problem.
Pros: 2 computers with dual monitors. Supports a mix Mac/PC environment well. No need for power supply as it pulls it from USB. Solid case... professional feel and look. I had this thing connected for over 2 years and love it. Having a real box to switch to is better than using VMWare/Paralles.
Cons: Sometimes when switching the mouse is lost. However the fix is easy... toggle back and forth and it comes back. Might actually be the computer(s) fault?
Summary: The sound transport from each PC is a bonus, and I have not tested that since I don't need it, but I'm confident it works based on the performance of the rest of it. It comes with all the cables you need, which are unique to this device, you cannot use any regular VGA or USB cables.
