Summary: I needed a KVM switch for keyboard/mouse/video between my laptop and a Unix-based thin client. Another KVM switch that operates purely by hotkey was fine, until the laptop was disconnected from the USB - then the switch was confused and required both systems to be rebooted - NOT necessarily a quick process.
Summary: The device worked great for a while. It was used to switch between a Windows server and a Windows workstation. Easy to install and use. The product carries a 2 year warranty. The console keyboard and mouse connections died after about 1 year & 9 months. Shipping and insurance will cost about as much as buying a new one. After they look at it, then they may send a reconditioned one at their option.
Summary: I just purchased the TRENDnet TK-207K 2-Port USB KVM Switch and received it a little while ago from Amazon. As usual with Amazon the shipping was prompt. For a long time I've wanted a KVM at home to switch between my Toshiba laptop and a Mac Mini, but the cost for those I found before were always a bit out of my price range. The lowest price I've seen on any were around $80. I would have paid up to $35, but for more than that I was willing to "make do.
Summary: I rolled the dice when I bought this cheaper KVM switch. I wish now that I would have purchased a more expensive one. The unit seems to be designed ok, the cables are long enough and hook up was pretty simple. The owners manual and documentation are pretty good and the Trendnet website is somewhat helpful if needed. The problem that I've had with this unit is that it will switch without cause.
Summary: Been using this unit a few weeks now. I didn't need the VGA part -- I only wanted a two-port USB switch for my mouse & keyboard and this was the most reasonably-priced item I could find that would fit the bill. The good: works perfectly fine without any VGA connectors attached to monitors, so works for my purposes just fine. The bad: Well, the cables that come with it are a little bit short.
Summary: I ordered this KVM Switch to up grade my present KVM Sw. It does not work with windows 7.Cannot send it back as it costs about as mush as i paid for it,plus a restocking fee. Don`t buy it, not worth the money .
Summary: For me, the problem with this specific model of USB KVM switch as opposed to my old switch that used PS2 connectors is that it won't keep the USB connection alive when you switch away from either of the PCs. Since it dismounts the USB devices (keyboard and mouse) every time you switch away and then remounts the devices when you switch back, there is a good chance the devices will lock up.
