Does the job well

Anonymous, Newegg
9 March 2014
  • Summary: I have seen some reviewers giving bad reviews to this device because it will not support new mice. Before you buy, read the specs. This KVM supports PS/2 devices. This means the KVM will not recognize or transmit the UBS signals to the CPU.
  • Pros: Supports four DIV-I (dual link) systems in a dual monitor set up Will support resolutions up to 1080P (maybe higher but my monitors only go to 1080P) Supports PS/2 keyboards and mice Fast switching on PS/2 ports, monitors will depend on specs of the monitor.
  • Cons: Supplied cables, while very high quality, will only support DVI-I and not DVI-D. If you have a card that has DVI-D, you will need a separate cable. The KVM will work with DVI-D cables as they are only missing the analog signal. The analog signal is irrelevant if you are using digital monitors. LI...

Works great

Stephen C., Newegg
19 August 2013
  • Pros: As other comments suggest, this handles larger resolutions than what the documentation suggests. I'm running dual ASUS ProArt 24" monitors, at 1920x1200 resolution, with some DVI-I to DVI-D converters, with no problems. Just plug it in and it works.
  • Cons: Unit is rather bulky and not the nicest design in the world, but it works great at a decent price so I don't really care what it looks like.

No support for latest mice

Douglas E., Newegg
12 November 2012
  • Summary: I don't see a firmware update or anything on this site
  • Pros: Dual monitor DVI with high resolution
  • Cons: Does not appear to support the Microsoft Comfort Optical mouse (it is a PS/2 mouse). Windows just simply doesn't recognize it.

Dual monitor KVM

jinatlanta, Mwave.com
12 February 2011
  • Summary: Works flawlessly, supports my highest resolution. Wished it were USB instead of P/S2.
  • Pros: Flawless switching between 4 dual monitor computers. Included cables are DVI-I, so I was able to use DVI-to-VGA adapters for my 2nd monitor which is VGA. Hotkey switching. Supports 1920x1200 resolution.
  • Cons: Not the fault of this unit, but wished it were USB instead of PS/2. However, dual monitor USB KVMs cost mega $$$ got this one cheap though

Now supports 1920x1200

P N., Newegg
29 April 2008
  • Summary: The BETTER part. I went looking for a 2nd 22" monitor. a 23" monitors for a little more, then 24" for a little more... Next thing I knew I bought a 26" monitor. :-) After ordering I realized the 1920x1200 is way out of the listed specs so I emailed Linkskey.
  • Pros: It works perfectly and can do 1920x1200. Because it has ALL the cables you'll need it came in a huge box.
  • Cons: .

Frustrating KVM

Anonymous, Newegg
8 October 2006
  • Summary: Ugly Graphics, poorly described functionality, etc. in NewEgg and Linkskey website narratives. As for me, I would have gladly paid more for a better thought out KVM design.
  • Pros: Moderatly priced dual KVM Switch with high quality construction.
  • Cons: The design logic is faulty. In order for this KVM to see a computer it must be switched to point that computer when it (the computer) is powered on. Every other KVM I have used will see a computer that is powered on; whether or not it was pointed at the computer when powering up. Just wait until ...

Best DVI Bang per $

Anonymous, Newegg
28 May 2006
  • Summary: KVMs aren't perfect. Dual DVI KVMs can cost thousands. For the money this one is fantastic. It just quietly works like a switch should. Best bang per $ out there. I spent months researching and soul searching over this purchase. No regrets!
  • Pros: KVMs are problematic, PERIOD! This one works nicely in 1600 X 1200 and works in gaming as well. There's not a lot of info out there on DVI KVMs. This KVM works well with my Logitech MX3100 (MX1000 mouse) and even maintains the mouses back/forward browser functions. This has been a huge issue and ...
  • Cons: The box is pretty ugly. Logitech's drivers are iffy at best but they "don't support KVMs". Microsoft's intellipoints work nicely with the MX1000 and this KVM. Sometimes the monitor is only recognized as a generic monitor. No big deal. The cables seem to have issues with Nvidia graphics cards. The...

Works great!

Steven J., Newegg
22 May 2006
  • Summary: Don't be confused by the cheaper versions of this model. If you want 1600x1200 on each screen you need this one, the enhanced version. This is a digital only kvm(per specs), vga adapters will not work with this. You need native DVI.
  • Pros: Works as described. Able to handle 1600x1200! Cheapest dual dvi kvm you'll find that can handle 1600x1200.
  • Cons: Can't switch screens during boot. Occasionally when switching between 2 particular computers, the screen gets moved to the right by 1/2", toggling the DVI/VGA input switch restores the correct video.

Good product - weak quality control

Lawrence P., Newegg
12 January 2006
  • Summary: The connections have to be screwed down very tight on the switch box or the monitors get no signal. Great prodect if only LinksKey could get their QC act together.
  • Pros: Dual-DVI monitor support; heavy-duty cables; good overall design and feature set.
  • Cons: The manufacturer's quality control is a little shaky. The first unit I got was defective. I could only get one monitor working at a time, and only briefly before the colors would distort. Newegg RMA process was excellent! Second unit has worked fine for almost a year.

Unreliable KVM

Anonymous, Newegg
12 January 2006
  • Summary: This KVM does not accept analog signal. All the necessary cables are included. Length is 2m (6.6'). But their ivory color does not match with the color of KVM at all. Design and color of KVM are mediocre. In general this KVM is not reliable.
  • Pros: Dual DVI.
  • Cons: PS/2. Logitech SetPoint driver is lost each time I switch between computers. Sometimes video signal is garbled, or ceases priodically, or is "out of range". When starting a computer, it must be selected in KVM from POST until the video driver is completley loaded. (Otherwise the computer will not...
