Product Name Misrepresents the Product

Bill,, TigerDirect.com
26 February 2013
  • Summary: The switch unit is 6.5''x3'', and they call it ''PalmTop'' suggesting it requires a small amount of space. When all cables and wires are connected, space required is at least 12''x12''. ''Palmtop'' in the product name is a misrepresentation. Software caused a number of problems and I had to stop using it. This company spent more money designing the box than was spent designing the product.

Works for me

rar113, TigerDirect.com
21 February 2013
  • Summary: My old PS2 KVM switch didn't have a button-press method to switch computers. You had to press scroll-lock twice and then 1-4. I prefer buttons. This has scroll-lock too, but it just cycles, 1 then 2 then 3 then 4, so I don't use it. Haven't even installed the software so can't evaluate it.

Bad desing of the switch

PHILJANS, TigerDirect.com
25 January 2013
  • Summary: I just spoke with their tech support and they confirmed it: The switch is design so that every single time you switch from one computer to the other, the computer you leave detects the keyboard and mouse as unplugging and the computer you go to detects it as NEW DEVICE! So every time you switch all computers beeps for nothing and you have to wait for the autodetec to install the mouse and keyboard and sometime you get stuck without the mouse or without the keyboard or...

Weird VMWare behaviour

Troy, TigerDirect.com
30 November 2012
  • Summary: I tried to replace several older PS2 KVMs with these USB models. I ran into an unexpected behaviour when using them with vSphere Client 4.1. When ever the keyboard-mouse control is passed to a VM from the desktop, the KVM detects the keyboard-PC as not there anymore, and immediately switched to the next PC on the KVM. I found no solution other then to go back to the original KVMs. I was happy with their cost-feature set, cheaper then old PS2 models with cables!

Works Great But Be Careful With Setup

,, TigerDirect.com
18 March 2012
  • Summary: The KVM switch works great and is easy to use. The switching software included on the CD makes it possible to switch without actually pushing the buttons. However, the location for the mouse and keyboard inputs are poorly marked and it is possible to get them reversed resulting in one or both keyboard and mouse not working. The sound worked fine on the first try. I did not try the microphone jack so cannot review that.

No Audio

OtanDear, TigerDirect.com
11 January 2012
  • Summary: Set up was easy - switched to each of my 4 computers easily - liked the hot-key use. But even when I contacted Linkskey there was no audio. Even bought new speakers. Went back to old KVM just to be sure that the speakers worked.

Works well with all the options I needed

Don, TigerDirect.com
3 January 2012
  • Summary: Needed a USB KVM that would allow hotkey changes on one PC and mouse click changes on two other PCs. In addition I needed button activation for those in the house who use PCs infrequently. This KVM advertized all three and all three work well. My snoozing PCs wake up when changed and my wireless keyboard and mouse perform as if there was no KVM in the mix.

Works Great, good price!

KB White, TigerDirect.com
19 November 2011
  • Summary: Been using this product for a few weeks now on two Windows 7 systems. Wanted a switch with buttons not just hot keys like other switches, works great with my wireless keyboard mouse combo, which I didnt think it would! Only thing is I cannot wake the systems from sleep mode with my wireless combo, but I just use button on either pc or I have a usb mouse wired as a wake up switch for each pc, which works great so I don't have to go under the desk each time. Love it!
