Nice features

nicholas l., Newegg

  • Summary: Trendnet was pretty quick at cross-shipping a replacement both times. Would be nice though if quality control was a little better. Also even though kvm cables only have usb you can still use ps/2 keyboard and mouse as long the keyboard and mouse will work normally with a ps/2 to usb adapter (not all...
  • Pros: Daisy-chain ability, usb or ps/2 keyboard and mouse. Programmable OSD
  • Cons: not the best quality workmanship. purchased 3 units had issues being able to daisy chain two of them. One was a previous version that didn't like working with different firmware. The second seemed to have a short or loose connection in the daisy chain port because would start to loose connection ...

Workmanship and reliability is horrible

David R., Newegg

  • Summary: This is my second unit. I paid more money to get the TK-804R due to the two favourable reviews. Boy I was mistaken. The first unit the indicators and push buttons were inoperable out of the box. This unit "Locks up" every night , necessitating remove/replace external power supply connections.
  • Pros: Cabling is convenient. Supports 1920x1200 resolution. Can suppress beep and Title bar. When it works video resolution is fine..
  • Cons: Must use external power supply . (I.E. not powered from USB connections) Poor reliability and workmanship PS/2 Connectivity is only for Keyboard/Mouse. PC connections are USB only. Needs external reset switch. No easy way to select a port via hot key.

Nice switch for a first timer

Anonymous, Newegg
17 November 2007
  • Summary: Will buy another one of these when I get more computers to hook up to it :)
  • Pros: This is the first switch I have worked with before and I bought it because of the USB... dunno why there isn't a switch out there that supports USB + DVI + Dual Head + Affordable. Anyway, I like it! The OSD is easy to use, hotkeys are great, I like the stackable feature (though I am not stacking ...
  • Cons: I noticed that when I have screen locking on, I've got it set to timeout after 15 minutes. It only seems to recognize keyboard input to recycle the timer. When I am browsing with the mouse for 15 minutes with no typing, the password box pops up and I am locked until I have to type in a password. ...
