not Win8 Compatible

Lucy L., Newegg
3 January 2013
  • Summary: When using this switch on a Win8 system, when computer restarts (shutdown, reboot after autoupdates, etc.) I get an error at startup- can't even make it to Windows. I had to physically unplug keyboard and mouse from KVM, connect directly to system, restart and once it was up, reconnect to KVM.
  • Pros: Worked excellently with WinXP and Win7 systems
  • Cons: Did not work correctly with Win8 system

  • Summary: Easy installation. Everything is color coded. I use this with 2 Windows XP computers and have no problems switching between the two of them. Thinking about getting a second one.

good but wrong for my app

David A., Newegg
15 October 2009
  • Summary: Should have bought the USB version...
  • Pros: Used for monitoring my XP computer and Linux server. Works with one monitor great. Only gave a 3 rating as I could not verify the mouse or keyboard.
  • Cons: My Dell has only USB for KB/Mouse and this is a PS2 version. Tried to use USB to PS2 adapters but neither Kb or Mouse worked with those hooked up to this unit.

DOA

Sidney M., Newegg
10 January 2008
  • Summary: TRENDnet's telephone Tech Support is very poor. After holding on for about 45 minutes, I hung up and requested an RMA from Newegg.
  • Pros: Packaged in a nice box?
  • Cons: Item arrived DOA. No video or audio. Indicators did not light up. Had to send it back for replacement which hasn't arrived yet.

works, mostly

Anonymous, Newegg
10 January 2007
  • Summary: Replaced it when I got a new keyboard that didn't support PS/2.
  • Pros: Works fine, except for the mic (see Cons). Hotkey switching is nice and rapid.
  • Cons: Mic port doesn't work. (Returned one and the second did the same.) Ports on four sides; this makes it difficult to place.

I keep buying them

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Out of the 20 or so at work that we have, there is bound to be a quirk here and there with some hardware. We have several different brands, and these quirks are with almost any KVM you get.
  • Pros: These Trendnet KVMs have been a great deal. Very nice price and includes cables. I purchased one of their 4 ports over a year ago. I purchased this 2 port for my wife 5 months ago and it has been flawless. My company even bought 20 of them for our sandbox area.
  • Cons: Not particularly fond of the color, but because of the keyboard command to switch between PCs I can keep it out of sight.
