OK, but not great. The USB doesn't really work reliably.

  • Summary: Great concept and works with both Macs and PCs. Video works well with dual monitors. Analog sound out and microphone in also work well. What doesn't work well is the USB switching. The mouse and keyboard will periodically hang for 15-20 seconds before coming back.

1 Year

  • Summary: This doesn't seem to support wireless input devices very well, which is common amongst switches like these, I just wanted to point it out. This switch is far too expensive to have lasted only a year. I would not recommend it to anyone.
  • Pros: This switched worked fairly well for just over one year.
  • Cons: I had issues switching ports using the hot keys from day one. I have owned many KVM switches over the years and never had one that was this difficult to switch via hotkey. Can be VERY slow switching ports, sometimes as much as 1.5 minutes for input devices to become available. Just after a year o...

  • Summary: This is a real time saver and makes switching between my three systems easy. Check to make sure that your video card and monitors are compatible with this unit. I had a few questions and Star Tech was very helpful. Rory

Did not work. One port DOA

Mike S. "-Mike", Amazon
10 March 2013
  • Summary: This product was something I have been looking for. The ability to connect my 3 PC's to one KVM and support my 2 25" monitors was a god-send. The only problem is, it did not work at ALL!

Do not waste your time

Tom Claffy, Amazon

  • Summary: I used this for one day and port 1 quit working; it would not recognize my keyboard. Switched all of the wires to port 4 and it was fine. Changed them back to port 1 and no go. It is so small that cable management is a nightmare.

Great Dual Display KVM

Adam P., Newegg
31 December 2010
  • Pros: I regularly switch between development boxes to test code, so I needed a real solution to allow switching dual displays on 3+ computers. This is working with Windows 7 x64, Ubuntu 10.10 x64, and Mac OSX 10.6.5.
  • Cons: Does not seem to work with VGA cables + DVI adapters, even though the ports are DVI-I. A bit pricey.
