Working fine after some initial errors. Not uniform with their 2-port KVMs in operation.

moocowman, Amazon
6 March 2015
  • Summary: I already have 3 IOGEAR KVM switches for other locations, but they're 2-port. I was hoping this 4-port would work the same way because my employees are already accustomed to hitting [scroll lock] [scroll lock] to switch computers. This one requires you to hit [enter] after the scroll lock keys.

Working strong after 7+ years

Ben F., Newegg
27 February 2015
  • Summary: The only annoying thing is this doesn't work in BIOS screens of older hardware that do not recognize USB during BIOS setup, but really that's a limitation of old hardware, not the fault of this awesome device at all.
  • Pros: Used it daily since 2007 and still working well. Have used regularly with Windows/Linux/FreeBSD hosts with 0 issues.
  • Cons: Cables not thick enough, my naughty Rabbit ate through one of the embedded KVM USB cables and now I can't use that port! LoLs.

Sleek design, but has flaws

Ryan H., Newegg
17 December 2014
  • Pros: I bought this mainly for the design, because it looks similar to a Mac Mini. Works very well and has all the ports needed.
  • Cons: Destroyed my logitech adapter. I cannot pull that sucker out of the usb keyboard slot on the hub. It is lodged in there and the plastic cover broke off trying to get it to release. I use this with parted magic that loads from usb and my wireless mouse randomly gets slow and will have to click mul...

Works great! Looks great!

J.Link, Amazon
11 December 2014
  • Summary: I just bought this KVM and received it yesterday. It is replacing an Avocent KVM that I had from work that I had to give back. The keyboard switching is very convenient, but a manual switch would be nice to have (for those times when someone who doesn't know the keyboard controls might need to use...

Good, BUT....

Bryan M., Newegg
1 October 2014
  • Summary: This KVM works most of the time. But periodically it comes up with the wrong screen resolution on one machine, and there's NOTHING I can do to correct it. Iogear has no tech support to contact, and their FAQ has no answer. Google has revealed no solution. HOURS are wasted.
  • Pros: Convenient, hardly have to think about it.
  • Cons: When it screws up, I'm s c r e w e d.

Noise in audio, No Monitor info

Lance H., Newegg
13 August 2014
  • Pros: Has usb and audio connections for 4 computers. Hot key strokes to change systems.
  • Cons: No monitor information is relayed or passed to the computer. So with auto detect in windows 7 you have to use a generic monitor and enter the correct resolution. The audio introduces noise that is heard depending on the what is being displayed.

IOGEAR 4-Port KVM w/Audio

BillyBurton, Amazon
1 August 2014
  • Summary: Nice 4-port KVM although a little larger than expected. I also hav a smal 2-port KVM from Iogear that is a mini compared to this and I was hoping that this new 4-port would have been smaller so not to take up so much valuable workspace.

Does what it says on the tin, but not flawless.

Charles, Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: I'm actually using this only for input devices (keyboard/mouse) and analog audio, as my monitor is sufficiently high-res to require dual-link DVI or DisplayPort inputs to drive properly.

One major hangup.

Mark S. Millman, Amazon
11 June 2014
  • Summary: I read the comments about not supporting wireless keyboard/mouse and that was okay with me. I'm using a MS 4000 keyboard and a wired Logitech mouse. I'm not using the video connector and see now (from the Mini-Product guide included with the Switch) that I might have gotten by with the IOGear GUS404...

No independent audio

Christopher P., Newegg
23 May 2014
  • Pros: Does what it says it will.
  • Cons: Based off of a *review* (12, in fact), I understood that you could switch audio independently- the included manual suggests this as well. This not the case, and the feature was removed years ago, according to iogear. I'd not have chosen this KVM had I known that.
