The TRENDnet KVM switch is a great addition for my setup
9 April 2015
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I had an old 4 port KVM switch running the computer lab with PS2 connectors. We were on our last PS2 keybd and mouse plus we were using PS2 to USB adapters at the PCs (as few new PCs come with PS2 connectors anymore), so we decided to go hunting for one that would accommodate USB mice and keybds.
Summary: This device just does not work. I plugged it into 2 systems, one laptop running Windows 7 and one desktop running Ubuntu. It worked ok for the Ubuntu system except the hotkeys to switch no longer worked. No real good reason why they wouldn't either - they just don't.
