Pros: Good Product: Cable layout on back is excellent. I will be looking through there products for future purchases. It was a completely pleasant surprise, cables while not top end were not bad at all. No distortions or screen lags on both a new and older Samsung model LCD Displays.
Cons: Nothing other than maybe the cables could have been longer.
Summary: This is a great KVM switch, particularly for the price, which isn't cheap but a good value for the money. But if it breaks and you are over NewEgg's 30-day return limit, they don't respond to RMA requests and you're stuck.
Pros: Great KVM switch, uses conventional tap-tap-number to switch computers, includes sound and USB 1.1 switching, works with PS/2 computers
Cons: Died at 3 weeks. The USB went bad and took keyboard for PS/2 Linux machine and both for new MB with USB inputs with it; brought down new computer including BIOS. With major effort involving booting with a direct-connect keyboard and going into the BIOS, then booting a Windows rescue disk and doin...
Summary: I was dubious about the claims made for this KVM, and couldn't understand how it could live up to them. For instance, the cable connecting the KVM to a computer has only a VGA plug on the KVM end, with VGA and two PS/2 plugs on the other.
Pros: Works as advertised. Connects diverse computers with a mix of USB and PS/2 ports and devices (PC and Mac) without any issues. All cables provided. Optionally powered USB hub feature works extremely well. Physical and virtual switching via hotkeys works well. Highly recommended.
Cons: The manual is barely adequate, and the translations, although better than average, are still not great. As a result, getting it working the way I wanted took a bit of fiddling.
Summary: FYI, I really don't use the audio function
Pros: I only use the PS2 Function, I have owned for 3+ years. It is still working with daily use on repair benches. Vigorous daily use. I am buying a second one because I damaged one of the cables. Very reliable.
Summary: Might work for someone else, but didn't work for me.
Pros: Keyboard, mouse & sound work great.
Cons: Will not pick up monitor. One computer would only give me a basic resolution. Another computer would not even pick up my monitor at all. This monitor and computer combos worked great on my Startech kvm, but will not work on this one. I RMA'd and tried another switch and got the same results. Retu...
Summary: Again, not a bad KVM overall. Had the specs indicated hotkey support was for PS/2 only, I may have looked at a different switch. Luckily, I had one laying around and could use it to lock the synchronization of the monitor/USB switching which can only be done with the hotkeys.
Pros: Overall it's a solid device. While I don't use it, I could see the benefit of independent USB/Monitor switching. Comes with the cables which is a plus and they are long enough for my needs. A bit pricey but I guess supply/demand is more a driver for this.
Cons: There is NO hotkey support unless you are using PS/2 keyboard. Who has those any longer and why was that not indicated in the details/specs?
