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. No glitches, plug and play, just like it promised. The only thing I can criticize is the physical shape of the device..
Summary: This is the second KVM switch I've owned. I was excited to have audio support. However, upon setup I found that audio response was very poor ~ next to no response from my subwoofer, and all low-end sound seemed to be filtered out. I emailed IOGEAR's support department and received the following response: ------------ Greetings, Thank you for contacting us. Subwoolfers are not supported by this KVM. It will only support a powered two speaker setup.
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. Great idea and not that expensive, either.
Summary: First off, I'm a techie, and not afraid to experiment with *any* computer device. So, when I couldn't get this to work (yes, I read the directions!), I had to scour the web and discovered that the hot key sequence as described in the documentation (Ctrl-Alt-Shift) does NOT tell you that you need to hit AND RELEASE all keys in sequence.
