The TRENDnet KVM switch is a great addition for my setup
2 weeks ago
Summary: The Item was as described. It contained all of the necessary cables and works well. I use it to connect to my old P4 BioStar VIA computer (Home Built) Win 7 32 Bit and my much newer HP Compact 8200 Elite SFF with Intel I-5 2400 CPU Win 7 64 Bit. I am using an old Acer AL722 17 inch Monitor. The only problem I run into is not the fault of the Trendnet switch. The max capability of the video Card in the old computer is 1024X768 and the new computer is 1280X1024.
Summary: I love the price but I have had a few hiccups with it over the past few months. I fix computers for a living and half the time while I have 4 machines plugged in, the keyboard and/or mouse will randomly stop and start working. The other issue I have on a fairly consistent basis is that the video will show reduced colors randomly on systems that it had been previously working on. I bought 2 and my friend is having the same issues.
Summary: There are some issues when firing up one PC and then later firing up the other. Sometimes it "forgets" how to switch from one to the other, but resetting the switch by pulling the main plug and plugging it back in, usually works. I did notice that I had to use jack 1 & 3 vice 1 & 2, as this happened less often. But it does what I want & at a very reasonable price.
Summary: I am using this for three laptops: a Dell, an HP, and a Lenovo Helix. I have a VGA adapter for the Helix. It switches between the three smoothly. I haven't had a problem with any not being recognized when I press the button to switch.
