Summary: I have one LED monitor, one emachine keybord, and one generic stereo active speaker box. These are now shared between a Windows Vista emachine and a Windows 7 machine. I can double click the scroll-lock button and toggle back and forth between the two computers.
Summary: The IOGEAR KVM switch is a very simple and easy way to eliminate extra clutter at your work station. With only one monitor, keyboard, and mouse it eliminates confusion about which one to use. If one computer is turned off, everything still works for the one that is turned on.
Summary: One side of the audio died suddenly for just one PC, after about 9 months. Took over a week and 2 emails to obtain RMA approval. First, I had to provide all the personal and product information on their website. Then, I received an email asking me for the very same information.
Pros: Inexpensive and convenient way to two PCs to a single monitor, keyboard, mouse and a set of speakers. Easy switching between PCs by double-tap of the Scroll Lock key.
Cons: Does not support the scrolling and other advanced functions for the PS/2 "touch pad" mouse that is part of my keyboard. Only 2.1 audio supported. IOGEAR's customer service is so-so and their warranty/RMA process is one of the worse I've ever dealt with.
