Summary: I use these exclusively because they're very high quality and cost effective. I repair computers and do graphics design with workstations. These KVM switches are more than adequate for my needs and highly recommend them.
Pros: I have several of these in my shop for the repair bench and in my office for the graphics design department in my shop.
Fast and easy to use KVM switch with convenient hot-key function

Summary: After trying numerous KVM switches from various brands I have settled on this switch for my daily use. The GCS632U is the fastest KVM switch when it comes to recognizing my keyboard and mouse.
Summary: I use this device to switch keyboard/mouse between a macbook pro running yosemite, and a desktop PC running Windows 10/ubuntu 15.04. I haven't tested the video/audio switching, but the keyboard/mouse switching is top notch! ***Note that it is designed for use with a PC keyboard***
Pros: - instant switching between machines - works with OSX/Windows/Linux - cables are integrated in the device, reducing bulkiness compared with other VGA KVM's - highly affordable
Cons: - difficult to position so that cables are out of the way and indicator light is visible, but this may just be the way I have my desk arranged
Summary: Had I known that I would have bough a different brand
Pros: Works fine if you are connecting 2 window PCs
Cons: Does not work with new MacBooks. If you have a newer macbook pro don't get it. I just purchased a new Mac Book Pro, I purchased the thuderport adapter to vga and hooked it up. The screen does not show correctly. When connecting the computer directly to the monitor it displays just fine. I called ...
Summary: I love getting equipment of this level of quality from Newegg.
Pros: This is a great KVM switch. The construction is really solid, the built-in cables are an excellent 6' long. The flexibility it allows is surprising: you can redefine the 'swap key' to be anything you want (not that I needed to -- I'm perfectly happy with <Scr Lk> <Scr Lk>. I'd buy another one of ...
Summary: This KVM switch was not at all what I was expecting. I am very dissatisfied with this product, and am unable to use it as when I hooked it up, I immediately got wavy lines across my monitor. I am going to return this product for a refund.
Pros: Easy to setup
Cons: Device produced wavy lines across monitor after installing
Summary: This is the best switch anywhere near this price range. I would consider buying a better one for more money if I found one.
Pros: It switches well and reliably. It is configurable. I use it for a MacMini and a Windows 7 PC. The keyboard and mouse emulation is really nice. It keeps the computers from thinking that the peripheriald were removed. Very nice. The price is good, too.
Cons: The audio has static noise. It is fairly quiet, but I notice it. I have nice headphones, nice speakers, and good ears. So, I may notice it more than most people. However, you will hear it when the speaker volume is high. When the mouse moves, the noise is louder and includes beeps, similar to the...
Summary: I need to look for a better KVM. This one doesn't cut it. I haven't reviewed the item completely so I don't know if it warned about this ahead of time. It may be my fault.
Pros: It works, somewhat
Cons: You cannot use a wireless mouse and keyboard combo that uses the same receiver for both the mouse and keyboard. If you plug the receiver into the mouse port on the KVM, the mouse works, but the hotkeys don't, so that isn't functional. If you plug the receiver into the keyboard USB port on the KVM...
