Summary: I bought this to replace a different brand that stopped working after about a year. This model and brand plugged right into my existing KVM cables, so I didn't even have to disconnect my computer side cables. It works very well so far. This will be the fourth model I have bought and the most expensive. The other, cheaper models all stopped working after about a year. Time will tell if this is a better product.
Summary: Delivered promptly and on time. Everything was in the box as stated and it was very simple to install. I ran the software CD on both PCs (Vista) and the little switcher programme installed without difficulty. Plugging in the cables was straightforward and obvious - the diagram in the instruction booklet was clear and unambiguous. Operation is also simple.
Summary: Pretty good product. Does exactly what it says on the box. In case anyone is wondering, you don't need a USB mouse & USB keyboard together - it is possible to have a single USB dongle which (wirelessly) connects to a mouse and a keyboard. To get your machine to display its correct resolution on boot, just make sure your KVM box is set to receive input from your booting machine.
Summary: I use this switch at work and I have just blown through my second one. For some reason using this to switch between Linux and Windows causes problems. Even when the switch is working there are points when it will automatically switch back to Windows. For a switch that is suppose to be Linux friendly I have a lot of problems.
Summary: Quite satisfied with this switch. I have a PC and a Mac-Mini and was concerned that it may not be compatible with the Mac. A DVD is included that enables switching over from an icon on the monitor, but as it is only compatible with PC's, I didn't bother loading it. The switch works quite well manually and has enabled getting rid of an extra keyboard and mouse, as well as the extra cables. Overall, it switches over well.
Summary: I have a PC and a Mac-Mini and was quite pleased with this product. I was initially concerned that it may not be compatible with the Mac, but it does handle them both. The KVM switch apparently can utilize hot keys to switch over, but that feature is only supported by PC. Regardless, the manual switch is no problem to me and has enabled me to get rid of a lot of wire clutter, as well as eliminate 1 mouse and a keyboard. Well worth the money.
