  • Summary: The product worked at first, but within minutes, one of the buttons was sticking. I will probably return it and try another one.

  • Pros: KVM switch works as expected on a Samsung SyncMaster226BW. I'm also running Linux and haven't run into any major problems.
  • Cons: Keyboard shortcut doesn't work out of the box.

  • Summary: I've seen multiple complaints about this device resembling a "cable spider" or "electric octopus". Judging by the design, I don't think it was intended to sit on top of your desk or workstation, but at the same time, it doesn't come with anything to mount it on a wall or anywhere behind the desk for...
  • Pros: Great product for its price. Hasn't failed me yet, or done anything to make me consider "disposing" of it.
  • Cons: The only thing I've noticed that's slightly annoying occurs when you're only running one computer and in the process of shutting it down (note: 2nd computer is already powered off). If you're in the process of shutting down Windows, and an "End Program" or other error message pops up, more than l...

Doesn't work well

Jeffrey K., Newegg
29 March 2010
  • Summary: I only use the Switch for Mouse and Keyboard since my monitor has dual input.
  • Pros: Connects and configures easily.
  • Cons: I use the switch with a desktop and w notebook docking station. Most of the time when I power on these machines the Switch will not recognize the computers until i unplug the cables into the Switch to reset it. Once i do that it works fine.

Yesterday's technology today

Anonymous, Newegg
25 March 2010
  • Summary: Using a DVI-to-RGB adapter on one PC, the switch will not allow input from mouse or keyboard to bring the PC out of screen saver mode. If I switch to the second PC and the first goes into screen saver, I have to power-off the PC and reboot.
  • Pros: It's small
  • Cons: It doesn't seem to work correctly with DVI technology

  • Pros: Cost is good, quality of video is great, hotkeys are great. Allows you to stuff it somewhere out of the way.
  • Cons: All 4 sides have cabling, it's a KVM spider.

Great KVM

F P., Newegg
14 December 2009
  • Summary: I needed to go a bit further than the 6' to get the KVM box on my desk. That was more than the cable allowed, so I ended up buying some USB cables for about $5 to get the extra distance I needed. Overall very happy with it.
  • Pros: Works great. I've had it for a week and I am very happy with it. Allows hot-key or button based KVM switching between 2 different computers with ease. Good sized cables (about 6' long). Switching is fairly quick, about two or three seconds which is acceptable.
  • Cons: VERY MINOR. Cosemetically it has cables coming out of every side, so there is no "nice looking" side to have facing you if you are putting it on a desk within arm's reach so you can switch by button. Since you can switch with hot-keys, this is a minor consideration at best. You can always put a t...

  • Pros: Works great!! Comes with all the cables you need to install. Had it installed and working in about 10min! I installed the software so I could use the hotkeys, VERY handy!
  • Cons: It adds a lot of cables behind both of my pcs....but, whats a few more cables in the jungle behind our computers!

Great little KVM

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Highly recommended for someone looking to hook up two computers to a single monitor/mouse/keyboard/stereo system. It just plain works.
  • Pros: Works flawlessly, hooked it up to both of my parent's machines and haven't had an issue with either one of them. Works just like a KVM switch should. I think that's about the biggest Pro something like this can have. There's no visual degradation of any movements or quality of video or anything l...
  • Cons: The only problem with this is the same thing you'll have with any USB device, when it switches it takes a second for everything to start responding due to the drivers kicking into gear. Also, I had like 30 new hardware found popups show up on one of the computers, but the other one just did it al...
