User Review

Ms. J., Newegg
12 March 2011
  • Summary: I like the various option of the unit like with the audio, but think it would be nice if mention of tip adapters for various items like speakers (and power adapter as was mentioned in a feedback) as optional items to purchase alongside the unit.
  • Pros: I had been looking for a 4-port K V M switch and discovered this one here, and the feedback here helped me greatly to find out that it is NOT what I am looking for. I don't want a complete 4 port wireless set up, which is a good thing that the comment found here said that the mouse & keyboard are...
  • Cons: Specifications listed for details about the unit are great, however, when G o o g ling for a wireless 4-port K V M switch for wireless keyboard & mouse, I get hits for this unit ... and no where in the specs does it indicate that keyboard and mouse are wired/cabled only.

Works great

Adam G., Newegg
22 July 2010
  • Summary: There should be a combo deal with this and a rackmount keyboard.
  • Pros: Works out of the box with no power cord needed. This device fits a 19" rack with no issues at all. All the cords come with it so the end price is very good compared to other units after bundling them together.
  • Cons: Nothing since the previous reports of this not fitting a into a rack without being drilled turned out to be wrong or they changed the packaging since those people got theirs.

Fun yet esoteric

Timothy L., Newegg

  • Summary: Download synergy if you just want keyboard/mouse on multiple computers
  • Pros: works p&p fast and easy. Worked 100% fine on old single boot comp
  • Cons: Contrary to other reviews, the sound is not "great" it is bearable, but has a nice buzzing noise added. KVM would not give video for my dual OS booting computer. No power adapter confirmed.

the best

B. S., Newegg
17 September 2007
  • Summary: Audio switching: manual is very confusing, but you can select (via hot-key) whether audio follows from system being viewed/controlled or not. E.g., sys1 is your main system and you're building systems 2 and 3.
  • Pros: Checked the boot-while-not-active behavior. Started to boot system 3, hot-keyed to system 4, waited until sys3 completed boot. Hot-keyed to sys3 without a problem.
  • Cons: being able to buy a different brand/model KVM

great KVM - just buy it

B. S., Newegg
17 September 2007
  • Summary: Direct access to any system via front-panel switches. Utilitarian appearence, very rugged case. Power supply not necessary. Solved nasty problem with my last KVM: mouse scroll wheel worked through KVM on some systems, but not my primary desktop. Scroll worked on my desktop w/o KVM.
  • Pros: Comes with cables for 4 PCs, so cost is very low for total package. Switches audio well - no hum at all. Super-easy hot key use (scroll-lock twice single key cmd), lots of functions, including turning beep acknowledgement on/off.
  • Cons: Case is bigger than my last KVM because cables all plug into this one instead of cables coming directly out of case.

Poor performance

Ryan S., Newegg
24 April 2007
  • Pros: Includes 4 - 1 meter cables. Is rack ready. Easy switching between computers. Ability to independently switch between computers and audio.
  • Cons: Poor mouse performance, very sluggish. Does not work with PS/2 to USB adapters that are known to work with other KVM switches.

Not happy

Benjamin W., Newegg
19 April 2007
  • Summary: I'm probably stuck with this since I don't have the box anymore, we'll see.
  • Pros: it switches 4 computers and comes with cables.
  • Cons: The rack mount brackets are to big! I figured that other guy was a fluke. I called to see if I could get new ones because I would rather not hack up the included ones. They said it was impossible that they where to long. They gave me another number to call, which didn't work. Called tech support ...

Trendnet KVM

Leon B., Newegg
3 April 2007
  • Summary: Great unit, work well.... watch out if you are mounting in a rack!
  • Pros: I have used the Trendnet KVMs before thats why I bought this one. This one ALSO has sound so I can listen in on the network boxes in my stack (4 computers). The product works VERY well!
  • Cons: The rack mount brackets are too long! This unit is about a inch wider than my old Trentnet KVM. However, they supply you with the exact same brackets. Because the unit is wider, the bracket mounting holes dont match up to the Rack mounting holes. I had to take the brackets of the KVM, redrill the...
