Summary: The first KVM switch, that I received, failed after a few weeks of use. Very annoying. Amazon made good on warranty and replaced faulty switch at no cost to me. Since then, about a month, the replacment switch has worked just fine. The switches are manufactured in China. My experience suggests poor quality control.
Summary: This KVM does work without the power, but sometimes the mouse will not connect. It has a place to put power, but no power adapter comes with it. It says there is an optional power cord available, but I couldn't find it anywhere on your site. I had one with the same fitting and same VAC so I tried it and we have had no problems since. GET A POWER ADAPTER!
Summary: I bought this switch upon the recommendation of a co-worker. I use it to switch between two Dell machines, one running Windows 2000 and the other running Windows XP. It took some initial fiddling with the display properties within Windows Control Panel to get things to my liking, but it's worked fine ever since. I have found that it's best, when booting a machine, to wait until it's almost finished booting before switching to another machine.
Summary: This is a very solid product that is easy to setup and easy to use. With multiple PCs at home, this really helped me to consolidate all of the PCs into a single keyboard/monitor/mouse setup. Toggling between the systems is as easy as hitting scroll lock twice then the up/down arrows. If you are looking for an affordable solution for multiple systems, this is a great product.
Summary: This product solve me some troubles I've with my home servers, so I was following for almost 6 month. Now I get it, I need to sell 2 monitors and mouses and keyboards, ja ja. In the future, I hope to buy a Rack Mount KVM.
Summary: I have been using the KVM for a month and it works flawlessly. The LED indicator is excellent and the switch to change systems is very good. However, the physical case is lacking. It cannot easily or neatly be mounted vertically. The wires project from all sides. The LED indicators are useless if you mount the case under a desk top. If it lays on top of the desk it is not much better than a second monitor.
Summary: KVM comes complete with cables. Plug it in and it works. No problems, however with older mouse and keyboards you might loose functionality of double click settings on the middle button which seem to have something to do with the mouse driver being used. Newer mice work without a glitch.
Summary: The unit is well built and comes with all the necessary cables. The only disadvantage is the wiring arrangement --- the wiring comes to the unit from all four sides! If you can deal with that problem, then you're going to be fine. I now have two of them working without any problems.
Summary: Is a good solution for having 4 machines and few space on the desk. I am dissapointed in the distribution of the cables. They come and go by all sides. this is really inconvenient if you plan to use the switch button instead of the keyboard key-commands.
