So far so good

Michael S., Newegg

  • Pros: All Cables included. Nothing to install Easy to use once you figure out the key press
  • Cons: Takes a little bit of time to figure out the key press to switch between computers. Once you've got it no problems.

Excellent

Rick S., Newegg
13 November 2013
  • Pros: It works very well once you get the hang of how to press the hot keys, swift but not too fast. I have been using this kvm for about 5 years and it works flawlessly. Pix is perfect, no ghosting. Audio sounds great. If you have to use a ps/2 converter, the usb mouse will work but any special button...
  • Cons: None to mention. This is an excellent quality kvm.

24/7/265 for eight years

Kelly H., Newegg
27 April 2013
  • Summary: PS/2 switchers have an easier time emulating the device to the ports that aren't active. It's seamless to jump between computers with PS/2 KVMs -- much more so than USB which essentially unplug the devices and replug them to the new computers.
  • Pros: Works 24/7, non stop. Always switches, every time. I've had mine for over 8 years, and no trouble except the one glitch mentioned in my Cons section.
  • Cons: Every 20 or 30 switches, the number of the unit will get "stuck" electronically. By that, I mean that the '2' key used to switch to unit 2 (the last key in the sequence) will be pressed and held down electronically and sending out repeating '2' keystrokes until I physically tap the 2 key to reset...

Do Not Buy this Product

Jordan K., Newegg
30 January 2013
  • Pros: When it works its great.
  • Cons: It uses a PS2 connection which is the downfall right there. I have owned this product for a while but just started to use it and it has given me nothing but trouble. First of the switch recognizes the computer not but the video but the PS2 connections which is a terrible Idea. You can use adapter...

Garbage

Anonymous, Newegg
20 January 2013
  • Summary: I will never again buy anything made by IOGEAR. About all that I got from tech support was that I was totally out of luck.
  • Pros: Partially works.
  • Cons: I bought this to replace my old BlackBox KVM which died. I have a mix of PS/2 and USB on my computers and I have a very old IBM PS/2 keyboard that I refuse to part with. The IOGEAR KVM won't work with a PS/2 to USB adapter but the BlackBox worked just fine with the same setup. The only thing that...

Should have read the reviews better

Jason M., Newegg
3 October 2012
  • Pros: Cables included
  • Cons: Does not work with USB keyboard or mouse using adapter. I haven't seen a keyboard or mouse in the last 5 years that is PS2. I thought that a simple adapter would fix the issue, but apparently not. So I wasted $50 on this garbage. The mouse and keyboard inputs on the KVM are way to close to the VG...

works well for several years

Richard B., Newegg
8 June 2012
  • Summary: I really like this KVM, and would buy it again if necessary. Mine is still working well after many years of constant daily use. It out lasted a DSL modem and two routers, and several computer upgrades. I have been pleased with all my Iogear products.
  • Pros: Chooses betwenn 4 computers easily, LED's to indicate connected computer, good video quality, good sound quality, does not require extra power adapter, reasonable cable length, small size
  • Cons: After several years of use, switching sometimes requires hitting hot key sequence more than once. This occurred after years of use and actually still works well.

Inferior Product

William K., Newegg
23 February 2012
  • Summary: When I first received this unit in Sept of 2011, I had immediate trouble with it. I called support and all they could tell me was try another port. One port is totally defective. The other ports display a fuzzy picture. My advice is to steer clear of iogear products.
  • Pros: The colored plastic looks nice.
  • Cons: 1 port doesn't work. Others look fuzzy.
