I bought a single of this from Newegg. I am incredibly disappointed beause it does not even perform. I attempted 1 complete day. Monitor is working but keyboard and mouse does not recognize at all specially mouse does not perform at all. I purchased it beacause of critique. Occasionally you must not think overview. Although i am unhappy but I didn't return it. I don't like hassel and I don't like to commit much more cash on it. Then I ordered Rosewill brand and that operate flowless and don't have any challenge with mouse or keyboard. I am very content with that. So, prior to you buy it think twice. Try Rosewill brand the one only ร.99. I adore Newegg service. They are The ideal compare to other. Customer service and super quick service. I don't feel I will ever will acquire this brand. Manufacturer Response:We are sorry for the poor encounter, sounds like you could have a bad unit. IOGEAR does offer you a 3 year warranty on the solution, please contact IOGEAR assistance for this.

Functions as advertised.Cables are a excellent length. Switching is a small slow ƒ seconds maybe.) Doesn't bother me although. Right now it's just siting on the floor under my desk. I'd like to mount beneath the desk, but this KVM doesn't come with any mounting equipment. Not a huge deal, I suppose.

Looks nice with connection cables hardwired in. Will not switch reliably, Will not function period when accessing a BIOS when setting up a new machine. Will not throughput keyboard commands when installing a new operating technique. This item's overall performance is totally constant with other IOGEAR items I have purchased. Manufacturer Response:From the symptom that you described, you may possibly have plugged and unplugged KVM while the computer system was nevertheless on.PSǘ based devices can only be recognized when they are plugged in just before powering on computer systems. USB primarily based KVMs will allow you to do hot swapping.For PSǘ primarily based technique, there is a chance you might have to plug the keyboard and mouse in directly to the personal computer one particular time to let the laptop recognize the PSǘ keyboard and mouse just before you place them thru KVM. We provide 3 year warranty and also a 24ǝ buyer help, please make contact with IOGEAR for the challenges you run into.

Been utilizing one of these for a extended time now.- Modest, unobtrusive- Hands-cost-free- great cable length- bundled cables assists lower the cable snake pit beneath my desk- contains audio support while I don't use that- utterly trusted - It is what it is - PSǘ and VGA, in a planet in which new PSǘ devices are nearly extinct and VGA is phasing out. Has worked flawlessly with each keyboard, mouse and monitor I've thrown at it over the last 5 years, like a few USB devices with USB->PSǘ adapters. Also like an older Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse combo that had separate cables for each device. Newer wireless combos have a tendency to send both devices by way of a single USB cable, and I'm not certain how properly that will work with this issue.

Functions effectively. Capability to take away two sets of cables is good for cable management. Switches rapid. No lag utilizing mouse or keyboard. A couple of occasions it's gone into panic mode when changing amongst computers. Not confident if I hit something wrong or if it just got confused. Good unit for the value. I haven't utilized the audio switching, but it's still a good function to have offered.

Plugged it in. Functions fine. I had to purchase a USB to PS2 adapter seperately as the newer computers do not have PS2 connections. They could have thrown in a USB to PS2 adapter for a buck or two far more.

performs suitable out with out any setup. very easy to switch among pcs. i've use this with old and new systems and performs devoid of situation. i've had this for almost a year and no troubles at all. it hasn't locked up on me even after. the cables are lengthy. no issues with my monitor every little thing precisely as if the kvm wasn't even there. and the cost is awesome. i also love that when u turn one pc off u can nevertheless switch to the other 1. the 1 issue i've had a difficulty with and i notice other folks have not is i cant get a usb mouse to function with it, possibly its my usb to ps2 adapter but i've attempted a number of distinct mice and it doesn't want to function, and not any fancy usb mouse just incredibly straightforward optical mouse, for some explanation it just doesn't register at all. but it could be my adapter, i've just been as well lazy to get a new a single to test out, cause my ps2 mouse functions wonderful with this so i'll get to locating a new adapter one of these days i guess. this is a single of the ideal kvm switches you can get and if you count in the low value its completely a should purchase. i've observed other way additional expensive kvm switches where people have troubles that i've in no way had with this one. so even without factoring in the low expense this is a good kvm switch. its basic and it gets the job performed with no any headache. connect every thing and forget about it.

fast and effortless switching, very good image good quality. had troubles with initial setup Ran into a difficulty exactly where my monitor was not detected properly by my second computer when connected to the kvm. The video card saw the monitor as "Default Monitor". Mainly because of this I could not set the appropriate refresh rate, resulting in horrible flickering and image becoming off center.I got the resolution from one more overview on the internet. I hooked up my monitor straight to the second personal computer, this allowed it to be recognized and the correct refresh rate could be set. I then powered down the personal computer and connected it to the kvm while disconnecting the initially computer system from the kvm. I then powered up the computer system (with the first personal computer still disconnected) and the monitor began operating like it really should. Connected the first computer system and each computers saw the monitor (with the right refresh price).

Straightforward to use & set up. The switch is smaller & low profile. Cables are really long Ɩ'). Manual hot essential handy, uncomplicated to use, & uncomplicated to bear in mind (scroll lock twice rapidly). You can't accidentally switch. Doesn't will need a power supply. Excellent video signal for analog. Minor ones: The encouraged resolution for my monitor 񢀠x900) doesn't show up as an selection even on XP via this (or is that not an selection for an analog signal in general?). Thankfully on my key pc I was in a position to use alternate settings for my graphics card to force the correct resolution but I commonly use DVI on that anyway. May take far more than a single attempt to switch depending on how quick you hit the key in particular when acquiring utilised to it. Tested on XP & 2000 Pro but not Vista. Auto scan looks complex, stupid, & useless so I haven't attempted it. I Only need to have the manual switch. You're out of luck if you like a button to hit but personally, I don't care. I am capable to use a USB mouse with a USB to PSǘ adapter. You may well want something else if you don't want the extended cables since you have to do anything with them. If you are going to do like me & have both DVI & analog (through this) signals connected to a computer system windows will think that you have two monitors connected. The only way to do that is to be capable to clone the signal otherwise you'll get an extended desktop on 1 of the inputs.

Totally difficulty-absolutely free install, No energy-provide or computer software required, has cables for two systems permanently attached. Collectively with the single monitor, mouse and keyboard cables for input, allows me to have two systems sitting eight ft away. Scroll Lock crucial toggles between two systems. LED on item indicates which system is presently active. Switches instantly between systems. Does not deteriorate Video signal to LCD monitor at all. All analog connections only. PSǘ for keyboard and mouse, D-sub for VGA. Not actually a issue for me but potential buyers should be conscious ahead of acquiring. I tried connecting a USB mouse utilizing an adaptor, but it doesn't perform. Would like to see a up-market place version of this solution which accepts DVI and USB connections in addition to Analog, but I count on that would price very a bit additional..........I'm a quite pleased camper with the item at the current price tag-point.

Inexpensive, effectively made, fast and easy toggle switching with keyboard hotkeys. Good tiny unit that does specifically what it's supposed to do, with no fuss. None. Set this up w/ two Linux (CentOS 5.3) boxes and the hotkeys worked with no bother at all. Wonderful little unit that's unobtrusive, straightforward to use, and cheap. Newegg shipping is excellent as always (bought it via work).

Switches very easily, cleanly and fast. Haven't knowledgeable any concerns with recognizing the mouse or keyboard that a smilar kvm that switched usb connections would give. This may well only be an problem on my setup, but the display signal is much less than excellent if a single of the source video signals is off (i.e. I only have my laptop on and not my pc). It produces an interferance signal that gradually scrolls down the show. This only goes away if I switch my Computer on. Not overly concerned by this feature because I use separate displays for every single device and just call for a single keyboard/mouse. I had to "downgrade" my USB mouse working with a USB-to-PSǘ converter to do the dual setup, but it nevertheless beats utilizing a USB kvm switch.

It is inexpensive and does what it is supposed to do. It is compact and has plenty of cable length. The video switching is a tiny slower than other KVMs I've utilised. My HP mouse (USB simple scroll mouse) would not operate with the PS2 adapter. This is in all probability a problem with the mouse. I switched to a standard Logitech USB scroll mouse and it performs fine with the PS2 adapter.
