Summary: This is a very nice KVM switch especially given the price that it sells for (there are more out there that cost a lot more than this one), It was easy to setup on my server rack and very easy to use. It comes with different length cables to reach the different computers/servers that you are attaching to it and additional adapters for the keyboard, mouse and monitor connections.
Summary: So I had a few linksys kvm 4 ports with the thick mouse and vga combo cables. This unit has slimmer cables which made running the mouse etc easier through a half rack. Since the cables are usb you wont have to reboot if the switch is not on the computer when it gets rebooted like ps2 cables. works well with vmware servers so far on hp and ibm x86 commodity hardware.
Summary: First, the product itself is exactly what I needed and functions well. My reasoning for giving it three stars is that it did not include six of the USB KVM cables. I would have returned it but shipping from Amazon on this product is now 1 to 2 months out which just doesn't fit with the needed timeline. I could purchase it from another vender but the additional cost of the product and shipping would be more than if I just buy six more KVM cables.
5 Stars for a few months but zero stars when it died.

Summary: It's a simple device that does what it says. Then we had a storm come through that knocked out power for 28 hours. I was able to gently shut down my servers before the UPS lost power. When I tried to bring everything back up this KVM was dead - lights but no signals. I reset the cables, tried all the resets and rescans ... all to no avail. I'm going to assume this was a freak thing and order another one.
