TK209k

Dane M., Newegg
30 May 2015
  • Summary: If I had to replace this unit in the future I would buy another one, it works good and their support team are aces in my book.
  • Pros: This is a nice working KVM switch, I have had it for about a year and a half and I like the manual switches to switch computers rather than the keyboard hot key. It has decently long cables on it and works pretty good compared to other switches I have owned.
  • Cons: After a year and a 4 months the audo on 1 side failed checked the cables and found the problem to be the switch itself. To be fair, I call oem customer support and had a tech call me back in 15 minutes, we could not resolve the problem so he issued an rma, I sent the unit back to them they kept m...

Stanley K., Newegg
24 November 2014
  • Pros: Easy set up right out of the box.
  • Cons: Stopped working after a few weeks Trendnet support did not help. They did respond to my situation several times in a timely manner. I did get it working and have informed Trendnet (Adrian) what got it working. Unfortunately over the almost month of working this problem, I have been without the us...

Stopped working

Stanley K., Newegg
17 November 2014
  • Summary: Very dissatisfied Trendnet customer.
  • Pros: Easy to set up.
  • Cons: Stopped recognizing my mouse or keyboard after several weeks. Trendnet support could not help me to get it working. The same thing happened to my TK-409K KVM switch.

Disappointed

Lance H., Newegg
9 April 2014
  • Pros: As KVM's go this has all the features one would look for in a 2 port KVM. Where the audio in and out as well as the keyboard, video and mouse get switched is the way to go.
  • Cons: Video was fuzzy and distorted on the item I received. It will cost me half of what I paid to ship this back to either Newegg or Trendnet so I probably will file this item in the circular file.

Works

Anonymous, Newegg
27 March 2014
  • Summary: Though this KVM switch does the job, it would have been nice to have the hot key switching part of the switch firmware like my ps2 switch is. That's a great feature.
  • Pros: Got this as one of my comps is primarily usb and my ps/2 KVM switch was problematic with it. Seems to work well.
  • Cons: I'm taking off an egg as the hot key switching is software based and unless the computer's on, it doesn't switch comps.

Great KVM switch

Corey C., Newegg
26 March 2014
  • Summary: have not used the MIC since I don't need it. wrapped the audio in cables using plastic conduit to make sure EMI does not interfere
  • Pros: Does a great job of hooking up two separate computers to the switch using VGA, USB KB and Mouse, Headphone jack and MIC in. Like how the switch is powered through USB that runs off the VGA cable.
  • Cons: Nothing yet.

Using w/o VGA

Walt G., Newegg
7 February 2014
  • Pros: It switches works great without any video quality loss by using my monitor to switch between VGA and DVI. PC 1 connected to DVI and PC 2 connected to VGA. This just means two buttons to push instead of one.
  • Cons: I has to get a USB keyboard instead of my old PS2 keyboard that I liked.

Broke Quickly

Joseph J., Newegg
5 February 2014
  • Summary: Not sure if I can get a refund
  • Pros: Worked when I first hooked it up
  • Cons: Stopped working the first month. First I was unable to share my keyboard and mouse but the video worked so for what I was doing with it, I worked around it. By the 6th month the entire unit died. No lights , unresponsive
