Ronin007, Walmart
9 May 2010
  • Summary: I was looking for a simple and inexpensive way that I could work on multiple computers at the same time in a confined space that would not allow multiple monitors, keyboards, and mice. A KVM switch was the solution. The problem was I tried another KVM switch from Walmart that did not work with my computers (Windows XP, and 98 to Linux) even after working with the manufacturer's tech support.

unreliable

Tim, TigerDirect.com
8 February 2010
  • Summary: Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes you have to enter the hot key combination several times to get the keyboard to indicate you can switch. Other times the keyboard and mouse are not recognized at all. This seems to happen more often with my Windows systems vice my Linux systems.

A simple easy to use KVM

Bill, TigerDirect.com
23 December 2009
  • Summary: I've used plenty of KVM's as a Network Admin. This is an easy to use, compact switch. Built in cables make it simple to set up. I like the sharing of sound too - something many switches don't offer. Take a moment to understand the keyboard technique to switch inputs, and you won't be sorry.

Works like a charm

teefleur, TigerDirect.com
30 November 2009
  • Summary: I'm using this on 3 computers and they all function perfectly connected to the IO KVM switch. My only complaint is about the design. Like so many others, it ends up taking a lot of space on the desk with cords coming in the front and going out the back. It seems like this could better be accomplished with an upright device or wall mount device instead of a flatish design with a big footprint.

Great, but Audio not flexible

Brad, TigerDirect.com
14 August 2009
  • Summary: I upgraded to this 4 port KVM from the 2 port D-Link (KVM-121) hoping to have all the same capablilties. Sadly the one feature I enjoyed was lost - the ability to work on 1 PC while listening to the audio on the other. On this KVM, you ONLY get the audio from the PC you have switched to! Other than that, it appears great, compact, and easy to use.

Product works great You have to be fast for Hot ky

Bill, TigerDirect.com
22 May 2009
  • Summary: I received the product and had trouble making it work. I called their hot line and got great help. It turns out that the four hot key combination which activates the switch has to be input really fast! They tell you that it doesn't work with a pc to ps2 keyboard adapter or with a usb to ps2 mouse adapter. Actually it does work with them and very well! The switch is a joy to use.

  • Summary: I bought this switch for my small PC repair business. This item works great! I love being able to have up to 4 machines going at once and being able to switch back and forth as necessary. The only gotcha is that this comes with PS/2 mouse and keyboard connectors and some machines no longer have them. The addition of a couple of keyboard and mouse to USB cables solves most of that issue.

Great KVM Switch

solo111, PriceGrabber
30 January 2008
  • Summary: I've had this KVM switch for about 3 1/2 years and it has been a solid piece of equipment, at work I'm on my second Belkin KVM switch in 3 years that is almost 3 times more expensive than this one. If you’re looking for a solid KVM switch with audio support that will be reliable and last for the long run this is the one for you.
  • Pros: Easy hotkey switching, small footprint, integrated cables w/ great lenght, fast switching, no additional power for use, you can use some industrial velcro and mounted anywhere you want, solid product.
  • Cons: None in 3 1/2 years.
