Summary: I installed it the proper way, but the shared monitor / screen flickered all the time. I tried different configurations, even swapping the VGA cable and tried it on different video cards but it did not resolve the problem. Monitor kept on flickering all the time which is very annoying.
Summary: This meets my needs to use one set of keyboard/mouse/display with my home computer and my work laptop and toggle between the two, both running Windows 7. The only glitches I occasionally have, is that the screen resolution defaults to a lower resolution sometimes and to fix that I have to re-detect...
Summary: This is the best KVM I've ever used! I've been an IT guy for 17 years and I've used many different KVMs over the years. This one is by far the most stable, reliable and compatible of the handful I've tried.
Summary: Works exactly as expected. I use four PCs on my workstation, but I have room for only two keyboards and trackballs; so I purchased two of these KVM switches, then connected two PCs to one, and two PCs to the other.
Summary: I purchased two of these to swap two of my monitors and my Keyboard and mouse between my work and personal computer (I know there are single devices which will do this, but this option is less expensive).
Pros: Device had long cords, the led indicators are easy to see and identify, buttons are on wires so they can be moved from the device.
Cons: Would be useful if the usb cables were labeled. The device does not work with ALL usb devices.
Summary: A very good KVM switch, with a couple of very minor issues 1) The usb connections on the hub for the mouse and keyboard are reversed. 2) Some significant lag time on the mouse when switching from one computer to the other.
Summary: This is my third KVM switch, and definitely the best for switching between Mac and Windows machines. I use a ThinkPad and a Mac Pro tower that share a second monitor and the Mac keyboard. The first switch I tried would not work with the Mac keyboard at all.
Summary: Great KVM switch for the money. I especially love the integral cables and the little switch that I have stuck to the bottom of my desk for quick switching. As others mention it does take a little while to switch back and forth, but I switch between my work laptop on a dock station and my home...
Excerpt: I have 2 older HP computers with windows XP on them. I wanted the get a newer one with windows 8 but I had no room on desk in my office for a third computer. So I was checking out to see if there was anyway possible to hook up 2 towers to one monitor, so that I could still use my older computers.
