No good with mixed connectors

Chris L., Newegg
25 June 2010
  • Summary: It would be nice if this limitation was noted in the specifications. I could have saved some time and hassle. Now I have to find another option and RMA this one. Too bad as it appears to be a nice unit; I had a Belkin PS/2 & D-Sub KVM cable like this that worked flawlessly for years & would still be...
  • Pros: Hard to say since it doesn't work.
  • Cons: Will not function properly if you have mixed video connectors.

IOGEAR GCS932U 2-Port DVI-D KVM

George S., Newegg
16 November 2009
  • Summary: I considered another IOGEAR product, GCS942UW6 Hybrid DVI-D KVM (it has a PS/2 and USB connector) but opted for this model with a new USB keyboard.
  • Pros: DVI+USB+Audio connectors. The unit is streamlined compared to other KVM units. I also like the pigtail toggle button. It has a green LED ring that indicates which port is being used. Left half = Computer 1; Right half = Computer 2. Overall, the KVM is great and is inconspicuous; just what I was l...

Vista / Windows 7 problem

Kelly P., Newegg
14 November 2009
  • Summary: It's unfortunate that by upgrading to a new version of Windows you have to scrap the older hardware. IOGear should have gotten some warning I'm sure, or perhaps predicted the future.
  • Pros: I've had no problems for a year under Windows XP.
  • Cons: Does not work properly with dual-monitor setups. Search for "Windows 7 KVM problem" for more info. Microsoft wants you to buy more expensive hardware because writing stable software is really not their thing.

Defective

Richard K., Newegg
10 October 2009
  • Summary: I guess I am out $100 bucks, since there are no options to RMA this unit now.
  • Pros: None so far
  • Cons: I purchased this item back in February, but just got around to installing it today (I didn't have a DVI connector on the video card in one of my PCs so was still using an old Linksys KVM). Ripped out all the wiring for the old KVM, hooked this unit up and NO VIDEO. Keyboard and Mouse seem to work...

Good solution for small spaces

Charles V., Newegg
9 October 2009
  • Summary: Using to switch between XP and Ubuntu boxes with Saitek keyboard and 5-button mouse.
  • Pros: Good construction with caps for unused audio plugs. Switches back and forth with little delay.
  • Cons: Barely audible high pitched noise when moving mouse when no other audio is playing.

Works, but not quite perfect

David K., Newegg
6 October 2009
  • Summary: I got this to work with a Vista laptop and an XP workstation. Long story short: it works, but it does have some intermittent usb recognition issues, there is a few seconds of dely when switching, and to use it with my setup, I had to buy a few more doo-dads (an HDMI to DVI-D Adapter and a simple,...
  • Pros: Worked with a DVI-D to HDMI adapter. Worked with an un-powered USB hub. Good physical switch, and lots of hotkey support for various configurations. Not too cumbersome.
  • Cons: Cables too short to reach all USB ports on laptop. Required some tiny additional purchases to work with my laptop. Takes 2-3 seconds to switch video. Lost mouse signal intermittently, forcing reboot. Switching occasionally re-sets resolution

Works great!

Derrick W., Newegg
24 September 2009
  • Summary: A couple things that might help you... 1) I wasn't 100% sure it would work with a wireless keyboard/mouse, but sure enough, not a problem at all(use Microsoft keyboard and mouse).
  • Pros: Worked great out of the box. I also had the PS2 version for a year or so now and never had a problem with it. Use it with my desktop and laptop and resolution is perfect.
  • Cons: Wish the cables were a little longer...but that is probably true of all KVMs.

Works Really Well

Dallas E., Newegg
17 September 2009
  • Summary: I'm very happy with this KVM switch. I'm switching between a Windows Vista desktop and my MacBook Pro with no serious issues. On the Windows side, my "G" keys don't work anymore (the keyboard is no longer recognized as a G11), but there are no problems at all on my MacBook.
  • Pros: - The cables are adequate in length. - It works well. - It supports both DVI and USB (Yay!).
  • Cons: - The shape and stiffness of the device can make it a little difficult to work with. - The "G" keys on my Logitech G11 aren't recognized. - Sometimes after a switch the display is fuzzy. - Sometimes the max display resolution isn't detected properly.

Worst ever

David J., Newegg
12 September 2009
  • Summary: This is great for a PC-Only setup. Avoid it if you are working with Mac's too.
  • Pros: Small package, nice connections, easy to use.
  • Cons: This causes ALL of my Mac's to have USB errors. With this unit plugged in, my Mac Pro can not use a USB hard drive. Also, it can not be plugged into a hub. If you boot a computer with the console set to the other box, the one booting comes up at 1024x768, and not the native for the monitor.
