Excerpt: This purchase replaced an identical unit that started malfunctioning after 5 years. The fact that I chose the same one indicates my satisfaction. One reason I like it is that it works perfectly with Windows8. There's essentially no setup. Connect all the pieces, then turn on each computer. It's that simple. And at the price it's hard to beat.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable, Works With Win8
If you plan to use wireless mouse or keyboard chose another KVM
27 June 2013
Summary: I work from home and I have a Work laptop and a home one; so I needed a KVM to work on both computers in the same desk without too much clutter. I bought this one for the brand and the price and the ability to swithc computers with the press of a key on my keyboard. Great Idea. Well if you read the details of the KVM Wireless mouse and keyboard are not supported. wired keyboards only work for some models.
Summary: Nice KVM switch but it doesn't work with my CRT. It does work with LCD monitor. I didn't try the audio. Contacted IOGEAR Tech Support. They are friendly but seem to have limited knowledge of their products.
Summary: I purchased so when I work from home I can use my work laptop running Windows and my custom built PC running Ubuntu with a single mouse, keyboard, set of speakers, and monitor (extended desktop when using laptop). It works as I expected and switches flawlessly between the two machines. I'm using a Dell keyboard and wireless Logitech mouse.
