Summary: Overall, this KVM is worth it for the low price. The majority of reviewers agree, and I think my experience is a very uncommon one with this KVM.
Pros: This thing is really reliable and has audio. I use this every day at work. Knocked off one egg for scroll lock key issue and one for weird failure issue.
Cons: Uses scroll lock as the only possible key to switch between ports. I had a wireless Logitech keyboard that I had to switch out because it didn't have a physical scroll lock key. I even switched one of the custom function keys using the setpoint software and it would not recognize a virtual Scroll...
Summary: I think KVM switches should actually have a "switch" rather than being controlled by the KVM on-board software. After seeing many of these reviews, I can understand how it could be frustrating to use this in an enterprise server environment.
Pros: Easy setup when you can comprehend the instructions. It works for the most part.
Cons: It's not like the KVM switches that I've dealt with. There is no "physical switch" on this KVM, which was the main point of confusion. I'd rather have had the switch on the KVM itself rather than use the keyboard.
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.
Pros: When it works, it works great. Fast shortcut key switching via scroll lock key. Quick response to typing and display shows fine.
Cons: After a few weeks, I've found that it doesn't always play nice with my microsoft natural 4000 keyboard. It'll repeat pressed characters as if I'm holding the key down. I RMA'ed the first one, and had the same issue with the replacement. I found another review that said that this particular keyboa...
Summary: Iogear's technical support person offered an exchange credit towards the DVI/USB model; however, this is impractical when the other connection is to be natively VGA (and due to local bureaucratic paperwork).
Pros: Cheap, and in most cases It Just Works. No noticeable sound issues on the fairly cheap speakers I use. I've previously deployed five of these with no significant issues.
Cons: There is apparently a hardware issue with video over some analog+digital outputs when used with VGA adapters -- particularly Thunderbolt chipsets (IE: the Apple Mac Mini). The KVMs do work with some of the older pre-Thunderbolt DisplayPort adapters, such as on the mid-2010 Macbook Pro and Mini. O...
