Switching works good but does not maintain video presence.

Czech Pls, Amazon
24 January 2015
  • Summary: Switch works as advertised, Keyboard and mouse switch flawlessly between systems but it does not maintain video presence on the disconnected monitor. I use 3 monitors, 1 each connected to 2 PC's, the 3rd I use as the second monitor between the 2 PC's so that each PC runs in dual monitor mode. When I switch from PC1 to PC2, PC1 now thinks it has only one monitor/desktop and everything from the 2nd monitor desktop migrates to the 1st completely re-arranging the desktop.

  • Summary: 1) These KVM has a HI Pitch Interference Tone in the audio line , no matter what I do its still there. 2) When switching computers the keyboard and mouse lose power than come back on while you hear windows P-N-P sound. 3) If you unplug the USB on ether computer you will hear the relay go crazy inside the KVM. 4) These KVM is Single Link DVI only. I trusted TRENDnet before , not anymore , dont buy!!

  • Summary: This is great. We switch from home pc to work laptop with a click! We would eventually like to get 2 monitors and I'm not finding the hook up connectors we need but this works perfect in the meantime.

This doesn't work, avoid

David Triana Rios "Say something about yourself!", Amazon
14 November 2014
  • Summary: The problem I have is that when it switches it actually disconnects the DVI signal instead of simulate it, and when it comes back it's not the same according to my computers. On a fresh start my PC detects the DVI monitor as 1920x1800, switch, switch back and now it's a 640x480 and the only way to go back to the real resolution is to unplug everything, restart, use offensive language when pushing the swtich..., not exactly the idea when having a KVM switch.

OK thru Displayport, not for thunderbolt

J. Martin, Amazon
30 September 2014
  • Summary: This switch has worked well for me, switching between a linux box and a mac mini connected to DVI through a displayport-to-DVI converter, but now it is unstable in video from my brand new mac mini if I use the mini displayport (thunderbolt)-to-DVI converter cable. It's fine connecting direct to the monitor (a Benq 1920x1200), but through the switch I get digital snow all the time.
