Summary: You pay for what you get and you get nothing that works with this device. I bought it and then had to buy a Belkin Soho switch to actually work. I fought with this one trying to get it to work for a month and could not return the product due to the 30 return limit. Don't bother!
Summary: This switch worked fine, however it took up too much room on my desk and difficult to access. It needs a large work area to function properly. Had to replace as soon as I received it. Will save it for emergency use.
Work for most of PC desktop but the Dell Laptop Docking station!!!

Summary: This does not work with my Dell docking Station. When I hook up the mouse and the keyboard directly to Dell laptop docking station, they work perfectly. However hook up thru Trendnet, the mouse never works. I have tried with different ports of TRENDnet and differnt mouses, just to waste my time. The good thing is it works with 3 Desktop PC I have. I work on my Dell Laptop most of the time, so it is not a good use for me. I just printed the return label from Amazon.
Summary: This was one of the best hardware upgrades I've ever considered. On my old KVM one of the ports just quit working and it had no audio. But, this TRENDnet unit works flawlessly and I was able to rid my desk clutter of 4 sets of speakers.
Summary: I have been using the Trendnet 4 port PS/2 KVM for several weeks and I am very satisfied with the way it works and the quality, for the price I paid. It has performed as advertised, I have not experienced any problems to date. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good quality KVM Switch that includes the necessary cables. Remember you will need approximately an 18-24 inch diameter circle of space for the switch and associated cables when connected.
TK-408 Mouse/Keyboard lose signal + screen flicker

Summary: I've been using KVM for many years. I was happy to see the TrendNet tk-408 offered for such a good price... However it was to good to be true. I got a macintosh and a PC machine to work ok, however when I boot the PC on Linux the screen flickers "until warm". I'm not sure why, but the first 10 minutes the screen is on it keeps flickering away. NO, its not the monitor, if the monitor is connected to "the other" KVM (ps2), this does not happen.
Summary: I love this thing. Owned it for a couple of years and it works great. Have had some strange keyboard/mouse activity when it is powered by a single Linux box other wise no problems. With three machines (servers ect) connected and running, having one moitor, keyboard and mouse is very nice. Have not used speakers with it.
