Summary: Excellent product. This is my second KVM from IOGEAR. The first was VGA only. I've upgraded and now all my systems have DVI video. Great image quality with my Dell 24 Ultrasharp Monitor. I'm using a PowerMac G5, Mac Mini Intel and a custom built Windows 7 system. No problems at all, just works.
Summary: I've got a fairly standard setup - nVidia video card & NEC Multisync monitor on the main box, a Dell laptop & a homebuilt computer that's all off-the-shelf components. (nVidia *video*card* - not the mobo, which is what most reviewers here are talking about when they talk about compatibility probs w/...
Summary: I use my IOGear KVM daily in my home business to link Mac, Vista and WinXP boxes. The product is easy to use and well designed. But what prompted me to write this review is, after moving my office I mistakenly plugged in the wrong power adapter which blew its internal logic.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME: Worked like a charm -- for a year

Summary: I was using this to connect a Windows PC, Linux PC, and an Apple Mac mini to one keyboard, mouse, speakers, and monitor. It always ran hot to the touch. After one year the thing is dead; way too short of a life span for such an expensive KVM. IOGear online tech support sucks.
Summary: After trying several cheaper KVM switches I finally did what I should have done from the beginning and bought this one. It is excellent - very easy to use and reliable. It has worked flawlessly for me for over an year now.
Summary: The included cables are a BIG plus. - Most other offerings don't include cables and that is a huge expense. The case is solidly made from steel and the extra USB connectors came in handy - not for printers and such - but for a shared iLok and USB MIDI keyboard.
Summary: The KVM switch works quite well. I have an iMac, a Mac G5, and a PC connected to the switch and it does the job. Running a monitor at 1920 x 1200 resolution there is no degradation. This switch does not "hang" when one or more of the attached systems is turned off like some other KVM's I have used.
Summary: I really like this product but it has a major shortcoming. It fixed my issues with connecting my macbook to non-apple monitors. That's a HUGE plus in my book as I was about to throw out my macbook in favor of a lousy PC simply because of monitor connectivity issues.
