Pros: Works with my equipment. Computer 1: Linux Mint OS, Computer 2: Windows 8, Logitech K350 keyboard, Logitech AnywhereMX mouse, both using one Logitech unifying receiver. It also works with my Logitech G510S, although I did not use any of the gaming features. Low Price
Cons: The monitor takes longer to switch over than I would expect. But its not horrible. Much faster than me unplugging and re-plugging.
Summary: I bought this switch to connect my PC and newly acquired Mac mini to the same keyboard, mouse, monitor, and speakers. It can also be share a microphone, but I am unable to use that feature due to a high pitched (teapot whistle) which is included in any recordings.
True HD 1080p on my Windows & Mac computer without hassle!

Summary: So far so good. I got it today. set it up in less than 10 mins for use with a custom Windows 7 computer and my trusty Mac mini. Love the true HD signal i get with both computers. From past experience, I knew my wireless Logitech keyboard and trackball would not work.
Cons: Only works with some usb mice? The super Cheep Mouse I have works, but the Cooler Mater Octane does not. Also video keeps dropping on one of the inputs. Returning to NewEgg for Refund Both Systems are AMD Builds on 9xx series chip sets, and running Win 7 Ult 64bit
Summary: Literally moments ago I wrote a negative review and gave this product a one star rating. Afterword, I started reading other reviews (which I should have done first) to see if anyone else had the same issue. To my surprise, someone listed a simple solution that fixed my problem immediately.
Summary: This KVM failed to work from the start with my setup. It caused my external display to have a pink/purple hue across everything, my computer indicated a failed driver installation (even though IOGEAR claims this item does not install any drivers), and bizarrely, my laptop's in-built keyboard stopped...
Summary: Many reviewers already posted the same problem I have. When computers are booted, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't work, I have to shut down both computers, unplug everything, plug everything back in, and boot the computers again.
Excerpt: I bought this product about 2 weeks ago and have been pulling my hair out ever since. I'm now looking for a new one because it is just awful. I use it to hook up a Mac Mini and a Win8 laptop to a monitor that is less than a year old, a wireless keyboard and mouse, a printer, and a USB audio system.
