Good for about 2 years

  • Summary: Too bad because they work well when they do work.
  • Pros: 16 ports, nice cables (1 usb and display to each PC and one plug in end on the switch side). OSD is easy to configure and use. All in all good units in all categories except longevity.
  • Cons: They last about 2 - 3 years then die. Power supply went bad in 2 units after about 2 years. Not sure if it's designed to fail but that's 2 of 3 units that did it in the same time frame. The third is coming up on 18 months now, I hope it goes longer than the other 2 did. Either way they will not be replaced by more linkskey units. Replacing these in the racks every 2 years is just not worth it.

  • Summary: Depsite setting the OSD to time out after five seconds, sometimes it will stick around for quite a while, and can get in the way. If they can fix that in a firmware update, this is good to go.
  • Pros: Works reliably with all of the systems I've put on it. Also works with a keyboard w/ integrated trackball which has only one USB connector.
  • Cons: OSD display can be a bit painful.
