Works well

Matthew C., Newegg
12 April 2012
  • Summary: Very pleased with how well it worked. I work for a nonprofit and have a tight budget. Reordered a new one to replace the lightning damaged one.
  • Pros: Affordable, good distance, good resolution (but no 1080p), lasted 3 years until lightning strike killed it.
  • Cons: Doesn't handle 1080p. Cannot handle lightning strike :) (not much can)

Worked for 5 months

Dave H., Newegg
30 March 2012
  • Summary: 20 year IT Director, I've seen lots of these die over time - If you get a good unit then it's well worth the gamble. Will try a return with manufacturer.
  • Pros: Perfect and inexpensive while it lasted
  • Cons: 5 months in it went "fuzzy" with no hope of clearing it up. Power Supply tested OK with no load on it, so it appears a component in one of the units went bad.

It Works

Chet W., Newegg
12 October 2009
  • Summary: Never heard of this brand but so far they are on my good side.
  • Pros: Works out of the box. "AFTER" reading all the directions I hooked up all the cables the computer turns on and works without a hitch. I had and 10 year old KVM extender fail on me at work and this one was the appropriate replacement. Cost was a huge plus as well.
  • Cons: None so far.

Perfect!!

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I was a little sketchy about buying Linkskey, as its not really a well known brand, but for the price, I figured I'd take a gamble. Biggest thing I was worried about was image quality, but it really looks perfect.
  • Pros: Works perfectly! And for a very competitive price...you can't go wrong! Video quality is excellent over 150' of good-quality Belden CAT5e. Remote monitor looks just as good as the direct-connected monitor. Keyboard/mouse worked without issues. Video gain and equalization adjustment knobs on the u...
  • Cons: No USB mouse/keyboard support. However, my basic cheapo USB optical scroll mouse w/ PS/2 adapter worked perfect. YMMV.
