Summary: I have had no issues with this KVM. I have used it with Intel and AMD PCs about 8 years old to brand new. I was lucky enough to have bought it long ago when it was on sale and a rebate was offered so my purchase price was rock bottom.
Pros: It works and it offers 2 extra USB ports for devices to be shared. The USB ports are self powered so no need for the power cord if just sharing kb and mouse.
Cons: Cheaply made and waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy OVER-PRICED !!!!!!!! There is no way I would spend more than $50 for this product. For $90 or more I expect a much higher level of quality.
Summary: I've purchased 3 of these KVM Switches. 1st lasted about 3 months, then there were problems with keyboard-mouse switching finally nothing, 2nd one lasted about 2 weeks, keyboard-mouse switching problems, 2 days later nothing, 3rd DOA out of the box! I'm done wasting my time with these.
Summary: I contacted Trendnet and to say the least the service was poor. They really need to take a lesson from Newegg when it comes to service. Was told to try a different monitor (well I only have one) otherwise take it to the vendor and ask them to test it.
Pros: DV-I, DV-D compliant. Low price for DV-I, usb KVM.
Cons: Issues with poor sound quality (hum/hiss/static, the full range and may have something to do with not having an independent audio cable) and intermittent video loss/ flickering. Doesn't automatically switch to other computer when powering one of them down.
Summary: Do not let this review deter you from NewEgg. I purchased this elsewhere and the review is simply a reflection on the quality of the product and the quality of Trendnet's customer service. Newegg has never been anything but good to me.
Pros: DVI and usb connections.
Cons: Video would drop out (screen goes black) when switch vibrated (was placed on same shelf as sub-woofer). Also the audio had hum/static. There's always a chance a defective product can come down the line but the problem that did me in was Trendnet's customer service. It was horrific with flat denia...
Summary: Sometimes the keyboard and mouse do not activate on switching. Overall, nothing out of the ordinary for this price tier of product. Having dual DVI makes the unit worth the price; however, be warned that the DVI cabling for the unit is DVI-I.
Pros: It successfully switched monitors and sound between a Mac Mini and a Windows 7 64 system.
Cons: The hardware has a very cheap feel to it. Tried using this with a Windows 7 64 system and a Mac Mini. Couldn't get the windows 7 system to recognize any USB input, and the Mac only recognized 1 USB device at a time. Also, it annoyingly uses a DVI-I cable instead of DVI-D (which works with all oth...
Summary: Lots of wires. The wiring kit they included cuts down on the clutter and saves hunting around till you find all the right cabling. It is great that the audio can be pinned to one or the other machine. I can keep listening to music on one and switch to work on the other without losing my music.
