Summary: The mouse precision thing is OK once you know how. On your local computer (the computer running the StarTech client app), check in your mouse settings, Pointer Options section, to see that the option for 'enhance pointer precision' is NOT ticked.
Pros: Easy to use. Cost-effective. Does what it is supposed to (gives you remote access to your keyboard, video, and mouse, over TCP/IP). If you are in a situation where you can't be at the computer, and you need to do things that can't be done with Remote Desktop (e.g. stuff at the BIOS level), this u...
Summary: They should open source this so that some real developers can make it work properly. Whoever wrote the code for this is does not understand how to make a refined product.
Pros: Conceptually this is a great product.
Cons: Like other have said the implementation is lacking. Mouse control is awful. There are no firmware updates and no one working on any. The virtual media feature is flaky, it keeps disconnecting if the remote machine tries to do a write.
Summary: I bought this so that I could work on customer's equipment at my office overnight and over the weekends without going back to the office to check on status and take subsequent steps.
Pros: Inexpensive and does work at least for keyboard control.
Cons: Mouse 'control' is anything but controlled. While you can move the mouse it is extremely delayed and has absolutely no accuracy. Can't change default login credentials and added credentials don't work, so if you want to port forward to this anybody that wants into just has to look up the defaults...
Summary: I thought that this might be a good remote support tool to allow a remote support engineer to troubleshoot a problematic PC where the OS is not functional. This isn't the product, unfortunately. You can't use the word "g-o-d" in Newegg reviews. That's ridiculous.
Pros: * Easy Setup * Displays video reasonably well up to 1280x1024 x 75 Hz * Would probably work fine with a character interface
Cons: * Mousing is so incredibly awful it's all but unusual (Perhaps I'm spoiled by using Avocent / Dell KVMs which have better mouse support over a remote connection than this does with local Ethernet) * Virtual Media REQUIRES A USB DRIVE! (This is just a USB over Ethernet feature, no ISO support) * S...
Summary: Will not buy any more of them in fact will sell this one as soon as I can.
Pros: It works you can connect to a server, can reboot, can monitor it. Interface is OK but very limited.
Cons: Don't bother if you are supporting Lnux based or anything but windows if you want to use the virtual media to do OS reloads etc. It cannot read virtual media except as an attached drive to a windows machine located local. Lantronx Spider for example with virtual media allows you to connect to you...
Summary: I had this unit up and running within 30 minutes of taking it out of the box. Extremely easy to operate and fature rich. I will definately make this my remote access standard for single server deployments.
Pros: -Low Cost -Excellent for managing a single remote computer -SSL Website, client downloaded directly from the UI -Virtual MEDIA!
