don't bother

  • Pros: price
  • Cons: We've had 4 or 5 of these over the years and the only reason we have had so many is they seem to die VERY easily after a year or two of use. They stay powered on, but no matter what you do, pressing the buttons does nothing. Stuck on one server with no way to change.

Bought two and both are junk

Christopher H., Newegg

  • Summary: My company bought two of these switchers hoping to replace the many old smaller switchers we are using. I say ARE becuase we had to put everything back the way it was before we installed this nightmare. Both of the switchers we bought have different problems. One switcher locks up when simply powering down the computers. Since this switcher uses power from the mouse/keyboard ports, we have no way to reset it unless we disconnect power from the pc's.
  • Pros: 16 ports, Rack Mountable
  • Cons: Locks up when powering down pc's and causes pc's that use multiple monitors to lose configuration.

Decent KVM for the money.

GGIT, Amazon

  • Summary: We bought this KVM switch to run a server room with 12 computers in it. The price was very attractive, and it works pretty well. The keyboard and mouse work very well and it's easy to switch between computers via the front panel or keyboard shortcuts. However, we've noticed some interference in the video. Also, cables for this unit are very thick and dealing with excess length can be cumbersome, but once they're finally in place that's not an issue.
