Summary: The KVM switch works as expected and was easy to install. The only thing that concerns me is that the control for the switch is only on a thin wire attached to the unit. If it breaks, there is no backup on the unit itself.
Yes that's right the dog ate my first one and this works just as great as the old one

Summary: I would not have needed to replace mine if it had been dog proof. Yes that's right the dog ate my first one and this works just as great as the old one. I just don't have it on the floor anymore.
Summary: Quick setup, worked right out of the box, no additional steps or software. I connected the unit to WIN7 desktop, SuseLinux server and win 2003 server, all three recognized the device and USB. I have an unified logitech USB receiver for keyboard and mouse, I had to connect only one usb. Switching between the machines is easy and fast, after using for 2+ months with no issues, I am impressed.
Summary: I bought the 4 port model. I thought I was buying DVI, but its VGA. Chalk that up to RDD (reading deficit disorder). I have used KVMs back to the days of Windows 95. I still have a couple of mechanical switch ones in my garage somewhere. I have been too cheap to get the high dollar ones, but I have tried a lot of the cheap and medium priced ones. I run multiple monitors and the KVMs for those are ridiculously expensive. So I have been running 2 KVMs.
Easy to set up and use! Would definitely buy again!

Summary: This switch has worked out very well for our home office. We currently have a windows tower and a Mac tower that are constantly plugged into it. Then, we have a MacBook plugged in periodically. On occasion, we also have a various computer tower we are working on plugged into the fourth slot. This switch works well and is easy to use across any computer we have plugged into it so far.
Summary: This works OK. I had to contact tech. support because the mouse did not work on computer #4, unless I plugged the mouse into the keyboard port, but then the keyboard would not work. I concluded that it was an incompatibility with that particular motherboard. The tech. would not agree with me, but had no solution to offer that resolved the issue.
Works fine, meets all expectations, supports higher resolution -- issue with using an external HD on *some* machines

Summary: I bought the 4-port version and have it connected to my main (rarely goes anywhere) HP laptop, a Dell desktop, and an old IBM thinkpad, all running Win7. I liked the included cables, and the biggest challenge was figuring which USB slot on the switch corresponded with which cable if I only were to use one (i.e. not a problem at all). My mouse/keyboard are on one shared transmitter, and it works fine.
Summary: I have had a trendnet 2 port in the past so I may just be dependent on its features. The IO Gear seemed to meet the needs when ordering and was a great price. The one piece design seemed nice but I was only using 2 cables and the other 2 were just in the way. The push button switch was handy as it could be close by but it would traverse all ports even if not connected to anything.
Summary: This works just right! I bought another one for my other rack. It has a button to let you switch between the four devices, and does not flinch if a device is missing. The button has a long cable, so I mounted it on the side of my rack with double-stick-padded-tape. The switch has a light on it to tell you which device is selected. It works flawlessly.
