Driver software is lacking

Neil, Amazon
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Quite difficult to get this setup working with wireless mouse/keyboards. I am using name brand (Dell keyboard|Logitech Keyboard+Mouse) but this just seems to be fickle.

Requires serial port for firmware upgrade

Doug J. "Doug Jensen", Amazon
10 May 2011
  • Summary: Most PCs these days don't have serial ports. The manufacturer has come out with an A version that uses USB for upgrades, and has increased the USB ports from 1.1 to 2.

Great Video Quality

J. Taylor "Mac Tech", Amazon
4 December 2009
  • 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.

INCOMPATIBLE with analog monitors

Dire Wolf, Amazon
2 December 2009
  • 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/...

Great product, great service

Chip Buchanan "Chip", Amazon

  • 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

Mark Horn, Amazon
12 October 2009
  • 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.

Highly recommended

T. Mikov, Amazon
30 September 2009
  • 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.

well made / good value

Chris Hansen "Grandpa Mojo", Amazon
7 September 2009
  • 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.

Great Product For Mixed Platform Use

A. Charles, Amazon
3 June 2009
  • 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.

Excellent DVI KVM but USB 1.1???

Christopher Edgar, Amazon
4 May 2009
  • 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.
