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.
Summary: Well, it worked fine for 8 days. Then one side lost the color, then the resolution then died. Other side works fine so far. Not going to return it, just not going to buy IOGEAR. First time trying them. Lesson learned.
Summary: Connected easily with USB mouse and keyboard on one computer with Win-7 and one computer with Win-XP. Hit the SCROLL-LOCK key twice and it quickly swaps you from one to the other. Worth every penny I paid.
Summary: Did have to downgrade my mouse to a regular usb scroll but is exactly what I wanted from it. Offers keyboard key for switching rather than a remote connected to kvm which is a spacesaver to say the least. Would buy it again if needed.
Summary: The connections work even with a wireless mouse but not with my fancy keyboard. I had to downgrade my keyboard and now have to use an 'alternate' method of switching, but I can do what I need to do to save from having 2 of everything on my desk.
Summary: We were trying to connect a new Windows 7 machine with a slightly older Windows XP machine. I first bought a Belkin KVM thinking that a switching situation like this should be pretty straightforward. Unbelievably, I was wrong. I don't fully understand it, but the switch needs to be set-up to accept Win7 protocals or some such thing and the Belkin switch didn't work. Searching the internet,there turned out to be many people in the same boat.
Summary: I moved up to this KVM from an older non-usb switch, the GCS62WM which worked great. However, in this model a very annoying doorbell beep was added when switching between computers which was not in the older model, with no way of turning it off.
