  • Pros: Works just as described.
  • Cons: Having a problem with my HP multimedia keyboard. Regular buttons work just fine, "Higher" functions (eject specific DVD tray, volume button, Shortcut keys, etc...) Do not. Be careful, Its designed for generic keyboards / Mice.

Only OK

  • Summary: I had experience before with some high quality KVM's from ATEN, HP etc and this one is obviously isn't one of them. Feels like cheap and works like one too. Aten 4 port usb kvm is over 2x more expencive
  • Pros: works, comes with cables, cheap, DOES have a keyboard hot-key [SCRL-LOCK+SCRL-LOCK] and windows switching application.
  • Cons: Very annoying delays switching between machines upto 30sec sometimes, can't use during windows xp installation (hang), poor design (cables coming out of each way)

Good price, poor design...

  • Summary: If space is not a problem, cable mess does not cause your OCD go off and taking your hands off the keyboard to switch units is not an issue this unit is for you. Its cheap enough and is all you need for four units in one box.
  • Pros: The price is good. All the cables are included. A KVM with sound makes PC testing or even game switching easier.
  • Cons: POOR DESIGN! The unit has cables comming out every side. This makes the KVM not only a space hog but an eye sore as well. Also you must push a button on the unit to change to the PC you are viewing (no key switch). So you can not even hide the unit.

Works, unless you are a gamer

  • Summary: If you game, pass it up for a better one. Thinking of returning this, but not sure what to get.
  • Pros: Works, intergreated cables makes less messy cables.
  • Cons: 1. Not for a gamer! It makes keys "stick" often. If you are a gamer, do not get this! 2. Logitect mouse and keyboard is not detected through it. This looks to be a problem with most KVM switches. 3. port arangement on the box makes placement of the device hard, and no wall mounting brackets.
