Summary: Even though you need to buy cables and a power supply separately, this KVM switch is one of the better deals out there. It's simply reliable, which is what you want in a KVM switch. I found initially that certain USB devices did not work at all (or fully) until I bought the additional external power supply that Starview sells. Look for that.
Pros: Front panel buttons and lights are convenient; supports USB; less expensive than many comparable switches
Cons: Cables need to be bought separately, though Starview offers them at good prices; There is a separate power supply you can (and should) buy as well.
Summary: I am really happy with this product, in the future I will first check Startech.com for their products and offers before I choose any other brand. I made a good choice with the StarView switch.
Pros: excellent picture quality, quick switching, heavy duty design
