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.
Summary: Terrible product and poor design! I tried everything to make this switch to work with no success. I then called technical support and they couldn't get it to work either. As for design at the connector hub, inputs are to close causing fittings to be cramped and bent. I had to force all connectors: video,keyboard,mouse,& audio to fit properly. This will be going back! Update! Got my replacement and finally got it to work.
Summary: Out of the box, on the 3 PCs, didn't work. Called 24x7 tech support, got through quickly and was told I had to start PC 1, when it was booted start PC 2, etc. Didn't work. Called tech support back, rebooted all 3 machines (you can only see one so you just power them off) he said it didn't matter what order the PCs were started in. Tried two other keyboards. My device worked on whichever PC started first, and only that one. It would not switch between them.
