works as it should

Harry Samuel, Amazon
20 September 2014
  • Summary: works well, using it right now, has worked since I bought it a long time ago. Would buy again. It uses standard male to male cables which was the opposite of my earlier one, needed to buy adapter male to male to fit my male to female cables. Wish all makers did it one way or the other.

Works for me

John W., Newegg
29 June 2011
  • Summary: I strongly recommend getting p/s 2 to usb cables. The newer motherboards are coming with no VGA or p/s2 ports.These cables are compatible with any m/b in common use. If in any doubt,GO LONG! Taking up slack with twist ties is cheap. Being a foot short is expensive
  • Pros: I tried a half dozen kvm's before this model.Dang near gave up on the concept.The TK801R changed my mind. It does what it's supposed to do without trying to run your life or sell you something you don't want.
  • Cons: I'm about 6 or 8 months into my third one of these. The first two lasted about 3 1/2 years each. So divide 42 months into the price,and even with shipping,it's only a little over $2 a month. That works for me,it may or may not for you.

Total junk

Daniel B., Newegg
7 April 2009
  • Summary: Very disappointed with this KVM. Too bad I didn't buy it at NewEgg-- I'd send it back. But I bought it through another vendor. Hey, NewEgg, when are you going to get a corporate purchasing dept already?!! Also, NewEgg, a "screw" is a fastener. After you've used it, you've "screw-ed" it in.
  • Pros: It functions, barely.
  • Cons: This KVM seemed fine at first glance, but when I connected it up to our server rack, its deficiencies became clear: * The rackmount hardware is about 3mm too narrow to actually fit into a standard threaded 19" rack. Just to make sure I wasn't doing something boneheaded, I actually opened the manu...

Kvm @ a good price

John F. Waters, Amazon
27 March 2009
  • Summary: The switch worked right out of the box. The only set-up time was connecting cables and fiiting the switch into a homemade bracket on the side of my desk. This is a very basic device,you'll need cables if you don't have them already.

Incompatible with mini keyboards

S. Krosby "Just another dude", Amazon
19 October 2007
  • Summary: None of my rack mount keyboards are compatible with this product. You are forced to use a standard keyboard. Why? Who knows? Steer clear!
