Summary: I need 1 PC for my work and the other for personal use. Before I had to change cables from one to the other one, now I press that magic button and 2-3 seconds after access the PC I need to use. This compact switch box is awesome!
Summary: The switcher arrived in a timely manner, in good condition. It was simple to set up. All the necessary cables were included in the kit. The switcher eliminated a lot of desktop clutter, because I only need one monitor, one keyboard, one speaker system and one mouse to control two computers now. It has been performing flawlessly. I'm very pleased with it.
Summary: Works as advertised out of the box. Greatly satisfied open box, plugged in the cables and switch was working as described. May help, in my case hot key on my keyboard is number lock key, may vary with different keyboards.
Summary: Glad I went with this instead of a Belkin. It's very small, cables are perfect length for my needs, and it sits easily on a mousepad on top of my older hard drive. Haven't noticed any delays or 'stutters' switching from one computer to another. Don't have room for 2 of everything so if you are in a small space ,this is perfect and the best priced KVM switch I found, and had the best reviews.
Summary: KVM switches are great for using one set of speakers, monitor, keyboard, and mouse when you have limited space and still want two computers. Be sure that you need PS2 plugs for each machine as they are now using a lot of USB plugs. This is only necessary to check on mouse and keyboard. I ordered this one by mistake and had to reorder the unit with USB connections. I still chose the same company. If you have mixed plug types then adapters can be found to still do the job.
Summary: I bought this KVM Switch so that I could use the same monitor (32" TV), keyboard, mouse, and speakers with my desktop and my laptop. It took a few minutes before my Windows XP Desktop found my mouse and keyboard, but once it did everything works great. I should have bought one of these KVM Switches 2-3 years ago. I highly recommend this TRENDnet KVM Switch.
