Summary: This is the 2nd one of the KVM switch that I purchased, the same brand. The 1st one I had worked fine for about a year and half then all of a sudden when switching back and forth between my two desktops (as I had done many times prior) my wireless adapter would fail, my mouse and keyboard would no longer work and then when I would shut down my primary PC I would get the blue screen of death.
If you plan to use wireless mouse or keyboard chose another KVM

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: Contacted product support. With device attached my computer would not boot. They blamed my computer but it boots just fine if the device is not attached. Tried many times. Gave up. One computer runs win7 the other XP.
Summary: i bought this on sale for 15.00 for my mac and it work great but theirs a bit of a problem the usb keyboard port keeps going out after 3 hrs of work and i been on the phone with every buddy and i even bought 3 new keyboards from 3 places and all with the same thing if u have this beware of it
Excerpt: Beware--like the other reviewer, I own new Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 (2010 technology), which is not compatible with this Iogear 2005 technology. It can't see the mouse when plugged into the "keyboard" USB, where it must be connected in order for the hot-keys/switches to work. It works on the "mouse" USB slot, but then you can't switch--which defeats the purpose. Customer support not very brilliant either.
Cons: Bulky/Heavy, Not Durable, Poor Quality, Unreliable
Excerpt: According to IOGear Techincal Support this product only supports 102 key keyboards and is not guaranteed to support shortcut keys such as web and mail on current keyboards. Definitely did NOT support the Logitech Wave keyboard.
