Excerpt: Good things first: It is modestly priced, around $[$]. It looks solid and even has a cable to convert PS/S keyboard and mice to USB. It is reliable and fast. The only problem is that the USB port for Keyboard and Mouse does not work with Microsoft 6000, wireless keyboard and Mouse combo (meaning,...
Pros: Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Smart Features, Switches Audio Too, Usb Extra Port, Work W Ps2 Keybrdmouse
Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Manual Difficult To Read, Ms Kbm 6000 Incompatible, Printed N Small Grey Font
Excerpt: I have 4 computers (3 PCs, 1 Mac) that use USB keyboards/mice, and have VGA display capability. I also have a USB 3D Connexions Space Navigator (a 3-dimensional motion controller used in Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing applications (CAD/CAM)), and a USB headset with a microphone I use for...
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Smart Features, Switches Two Usb Devices
Excerpt: For Apple Mac Pros. All Macs have the option VGA Pin. I didn't need the DVI mdl. Works just fine. It has usb pigtail PS2 adaptor thou not needed in this application. Don't need the Wall Wart pwr.ac brick at this time that came with unit either.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Seamless glitch free, Secure Connection, Smart Features
Pros: This is my 5th kvm. It worked like a charm right out of the box. I did take their advice and read the manual before I connected. Because of previous experiences with kvms, I've pretty much resigned to wired mice and keyboards. I'm not a gamer, so my needs in this area are easily met. I'm running ...
Problems with Microsoft Sidewinder X4 keyboard Part 2
Michael J., Newegg
12 November 2010
Summary: Some Logitech nano cordless mice will work with this unit while others will not be recognized. I think that Logitech nano mice that are advertised as Windows 7 are not recognized. The kvm is firmware upgradeable but no updates have been released since early 2009.
Pros: None to speak of. I revise my earlier review from 2 stars to 1 star. Up until now I have been using a Iogear kvm, but this one isn't functional for basic needs. It also looses display connectivity and can't be reestablished, but that is a whole other issue that is minor compared to my other issues.
Cons: Iogear replied to my original review that I made here yesterday. But the response that they emailed me is much different that what was posted here. Basically it says that it doesn't support basis functions of programmable keyboards. In addition the usb hub ports indicate that the luminated keyboa...
Pros: The fact that it has audio capabilities and usb support is a plus.
Cons: Windows 7 will not recognize the Microsoft Sidewinder x4 keyboard. I just called the support line today, and was told that the design team will be notified. Not sure what that means. Will update after I get a response from the design team. Even thought this product has the capability of firmware ...
Summary: Someone finally took charge and solved my problem by sending me a new unit. However, there is still the idiot that sent my broken KVM back with no repairs. This after I explained to them several times that the problem was intermittent (I guess they did not understand what that meant).
Pros: They finally replaced the unit! I will give them back two eggs for replacing a bad unit. They still loose two eggs for the amount of effort it took to get them to react.
Cons: It took numerous e-mails and phone calls and two posts on this forum from an irate customer (me), but they did eventually replace the defective unit. This process has taken over two months to complete, so this is not good customer relations on their part.
Summary: I had always thought IOGear was a responsible manufacturer. But this is one action I cannot believe.
Cons: This is a follow up to my first post. As the MFG suggested, I sent my failing unit back to the factory. The RMA department could not find anything wrong with it so they SENT ME THE SAME UNIT BACK WITH NO REPAIRS!!! A normal repair facility would have at least sent me a reconditioned unit while th...
