Useless - USB ports do not work

  • Summary: Useless. Keyboard/mouse on the console does not work. USB support nil. Horrible waste of money.

It's sturdy. It's metal

Todd, Amazon
3 July 2015
  • Summary: I don't regret buying this. It usually does exactly what it's supposed to. It's exactly the right component for the setup that I wanted. It's sturdy. It's metal. It's not chintzy at all. It has the look and feel of a top-quality, professional component.

A Bigger Piece Of Junk I Have Never Owned

Jason F., Newegg
16 June 2015
  • Pros: Pros?
  • Cons: My workplace bought me one of these to switch between two systems. About 60% of the time it is okay with pressing the button and switching, but the rest of the time pressing the button does nothing. A least 2 of my coworkers have the same issue. SHORT VERSION: BUY A DIFFERENT MODEL, OR BETTER YET...

Works as advertised

Daniel Denney, Amazon
5 June 2015
  • Summary: This unit is exactly what it advertises to be. It connects two dial DVI computers to two monitors. I use ViewSonic 24" monitors at 1920x1080, 60Hz. It shares keyboard/mouse/audio out/microphone plus 2 USB devices. It is simple to setup and it works. The required cables do not come with it.

Cheap...and there's a reason.

Torrance Sorrell, Amazon
3 June 2015
  • Summary: About the only thing that was right about this unit was the price but even then, if something doesn't really work as advertised, no amount is "cheap" enough. First, as many people mention, this thing has no cables. So you're going to need 6 DVI cables, 3 audio cables, 3 USB cables etc.

Faulty switch

Nor R. Brunschwyler, Amazon
27 May 2015
  • Summary: Would have given it a 5 but one of the audio inputs has something wrong with it and I can't insert a cable. There is no link to let the vendor know so I guess I'm stuck with a faulty switch.

I would NOT recommend this product

Cristian Contreras, Amazon
20 May 2015
  • Summary: The product is supposed to support both Ubuntu and Windows, however the quality is far from perfect. Compared to other products I have used in the past it does a better job, however it is virtually impossible to use with the screen blinking every few minutes.

Just... the worst.

A. Hills, Amazon
2 May 2015
  • Summary: This is, hands down, the lowest quality electronic device--and maybe even the lowest quality product--that I've ever owned. I packed it up for return after using it for an hour. It just can't be made to work effectively if you need to use an OS like Windows because it treats the monitor switch like...

Find another solution

Erik "Gangstalicous" Johnson, Amazon
9 April 2015
  • Summary: Not a real KVM. It disconnects BOTH the USB and connected monitors every time you switch between connected computers. It wouldn't be that bad if it also worked properly but there are two major issues to be aware of: 1) I have two 2560x1440 monitors and every time I switched between them, all windows...

Exactly what I wanted

Trey Blancher "traius", Amazon
7 March 2015
  • Summary: I use this to switch between my Debian Linux workstation and MacBook Pro for work. It has DisplayPorts rather than HDMI or DVI inputs and outputs, so you'll need computers with DisplayPort outputs.
