Very nice KVM. But it doesn't come with the rail kit

Gordon K., Newegg
31 March 2014
  • Summary: To the other guy who was surprised that it didn't include any cables - of course there aren't any cables. That's a selling point, not a con. You're supposed to buy the appropriate length and quantity of KVM cables you need separately.
  • Pros: KVM works as you would expect it to. I'm happy with it. Also the indicator lights above each button is nice since it shows you not only which port you have selected, but also shows which ports have a PC connected to them.

  • Summary: Also has a pretty loud beep when you switch machines. Maybe that's good, but I find it annoying.
  • Pros: Does what it's supposed to do pretty well. Video quality is pretty good, and I have few issues with mouse/keyboard. Sound is ok for analog.
  • Cons: Not really the manufacturer's fault, but newegg has this listed as "push button/OSD" for how you switch PCs. Unfortunately, this is incorrect; this model does not had OSD (On Screen Display). I verified this with StarTech technical support.
