Hardly words

Josh M., Newegg
13 November 2014
  • Summary: If this actually worked as intended, I would be pretty happy with the product.
  • Pros: The build quality feels good. The layout and offered features are nice.
  • Cons: When switching between devices, this KVM works SOMETIMES at best. I often have to switch between the two devices multiple times to get it to actually transition over. Sometimes I have to remove the monitor cable completely and then reattach it. Also, the main USB hub stopped working altogether ar...

If you have issues call tech support

Todd M., Newegg
25 November 2013
  • Summary: Bring the price down. I have the money to spend and like to have a fancy setup. But, even with that it was tough for me to justify spending $270 on this item. If this was between $125-$175 it would sell like hotcakes.
  • Pros: TL;DR - If you have issues with usb hubs getting recognized by windows, call tech linkskey tech support. They know their product well. Had this device for 2 days, got up for work one morning and I could get it to recognize my work laptop on port 2. When I switched that port to my gaming computer ...
  • Cons: I've noticed that once out of every maybe 100 switches the display won't show. This can be resolved by switching it back and forth between ports again. Doesn't seem like a big issue.

Monitor flickering

Michael K., Newegg
17 February 2013
  • Pros: Setup can't be easier. Should be able to power by USB. No problems working with Logitech unifying receiver, including mouse/keyboard special buttons and functions. When it works, the picture quality is indistinguishable from normal.
  • Cons: I have serious issues with monitors flickering. The problem got worse since I purchased the unit. On PC2, right monitor now flickers all the time. On PC1, right monitor never flickers, left monitor flickers occasionally. If Linkskey replaces it with RMA then I will be happy.

  • Pros: Good unit handles sound well.
  • Cons: Doesn't drive second monitor well but I haven't found a KVM that can. Get monitors with dual DVI hook ups and link the monitors to the computers directly.

USB Problems

Justin S., Newegg
5 October 2012
  • Summary: I'm not getting the warm and fuzzies about this KVM. Sadly there just isn't a lot of choices out there. At the price of this KVM these silly bugs should be resolved by LINKSKEY. I have heard from other forums that putting a USB hub between the KVM and the computer might fix the USB issues and I will...
  • Pros: Video works perfectly on two 24" DELL IPS monitors running at 1920x1200 over straight DVI from the video card.
  • Cons: As other owners have stated in their reviews this KVM is very finicky on USB. On my Windows machine running a BioStar MB the USB works right away and I can even use it to configure the BIOS settings. Perfect! When it attempts to boot into Windows 7 it hangs and the Green "PC" light begins flashin...

Updated Review

Christopher S., Newegg
29 March 2012
  • Summary: After over a year of ownership I am finally happy and the switch is usable after figuring out how to get my mouse to wake up in Windows 7 after sleep. I have had no problem with my Linux machine.
  • Pros: I posted previous unsatisfactory review that I would like to update. This switch now deserves a 3.5 star rating. WINDOWS 7 SLEEP MOUSE FIX: Reason for the update? I finally got my mouse to work when switching back to my windows 7 machine after it had gone to sleep, which was the biggest issue for...
  • Cons: Poor website, lack of documentation, no firmware updates posted for this model. Still required specific boot order of machines to work properly.

Good KVN

Patrick F., Newegg
26 February 2012
  • Summary: Audio produces hum from built up static, had to ground case to fix problem
  • Pros: Does everything is claims. Keyboard/mouse work as soon as you hit the switch, no re-detection required like other USB KVMs.
  • Cons: The price is high if you don't need a KVM with all these features

Works well...without monitors

Ryan T., Newegg
3 September 2011
  • Summary: I have not tried other dual monitor KVM solutions however I would suggest looking elsewhere.
  • Pros: Works well switching between 2 PC's audio, mouse and keyboard.
  • Cons: Out of the box the system worked great however after 1 day of use one of the DVI ports stopped working. So much for dual monitors!

Junk - Stops working all the time

Christopher S., Newegg
7 June 2011
  • Summary: Get a different brand or get a super basic switch that doesn't do audio. Heck for the money you can buy two decent sets of PC speakers and go the cheap but reliable switch route.
  • Pros: It provides all the features that I wanted.
  • Cons: The basic switching just completely stops working every time I leave my computers and come back. The mouse and keyboard will fail for both systems. When the switch is in above state it requires a *specific* boot order to work. I literally have to shut down both systems and unplug system #2 and th...
