Works Great

  • Pros: I purchased this unit over a year ago and haven't had any problems with it. I am about to purchase an identical second unit for our office and hope it will work as well as my current switch.

Does NOT work

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Both machines work fine without this KVM in line. Just got RMA and will try another KVM from Newegg (which looks awfully similiar to this one but is supposed to have a different chipset without analog support).

Ron B., Newegg

  • Summary: Ante up for a better brand. With this one, you don't even get what you pay for.
  • Pros: Nice box.
  • Cons: Didn't work once I removed it from the nice box.
