Inexpensive, Performs with Mac OSX two second lag when switching Fairly decent. Hooked up two older iMac G3's. Only point that is somewhat annoying is the 2 second lag when switching but I can deal with it. would def. get once more

Simple design that works good. I've utilized a couple of these for clients and just now bought one for myself. Functions with 1 wireless device that I know of, I've only attempted making use of a wireless mouse. It functions, may possibly do both wreless mouse and keyboard, but I don't know for confident. None at this cost point. Cables are brief, computer systems want to be pretty close to every single other. Side my side, finish to finish with no more then say......3ft apart. If that's the scenario you're in, then these will work wonderfully. Got mine for 15 bones and f/ship.

Low cost, effortless, cheap. Purchased this item for a client and I am about to grab a second 1 for another. Performs like a charm for those multi-systems customers that have a quick reach technique to program. None. All cables are wrapped up behind shoppers desk. Just the remote button setting in front. Just know which method your on and your GTG. Otherwise you can pull all the KVM cables up on the desk with you just to see if your on PC1 or PC2.

Liked it so substantially at household, I purchased a second for perform. I got this to replace my aging PSǘ KVM in which you could only adjust inputs with a keyboard keystroke, resulting in keys becoming depressed and held upon switching. None really.. A couple of occasions, when switching, the video worked but no inputs were becoming accepted. It doesn't occur often sufficient to make it a really serious con.

Clean searching, performs fantastic with switching from Linux to Windows. Mouse and Keyboard perform extremely nicely. The cable for the button could be a small longer and it could have led's on it to indicate what setting the switch is presently on.

- effortless install-good cable length- push button toggle between computer's none but Having had KVMs that employed "hot keys" to toggle (andfrom time to time I had a keyboard that "lacked" the needed hot important, so I had to get one more keyboard) a physical push button toggle switch was great.

Works wonderful, I notice a small distortion on the analog signal, but it's not noticeable. You have to look for it and only at higher resolutions. HDMI / DVI assistance would be much better. No audio connector. Want it had the audio connector.

It works precisely as described. Switches in between two HP desktop computers running Windows 7 and my HP wireless keyboard and mouse each perform. I can discover no Cons at this time. It does what it is designed to do. On sale it is a bargain and the cost-free shipping makes me a repeat Newegg consumer. There are two separate jacks for a USB mouse and keyboard but my wireless HP receiver utilizes only 1 USB connection. I plugged in both of the USB cables from the RKV-2UC switch to the USB jacks on the computers and right after booting the systems and confirming that the wireless keyboard and mouse essentially worked, I disconnected (by trial and error) a single of the two USB connections.This item is plug and play. Just make all the connections prior to booting the computers.

This is the USB version and operates some a lot far better than dealing with PS2 kind. Obtaining the remote button on the desk tends to make it some considerably nicer to switch among computer systems. No big deal, but you do will need to make sure it switch to the Pc your obtaining ready to use when you boot it up, when it's booted up then you can switch back and forth. If you boot up devoid of getting it switch to the booting Pc your video resolution will be off and you will have to reboot once again.

Image Excellent - There is no upset in the image excellent. The image appears specifically as it is supposed to.Button - The button to switch amongst the computer systems is on a cord, not on the box itself! You can hide the mess of wires behind your desk. Cables are bit short in my opinion. I have my 2 towers on opposite sides of my desk (about five ft away from each and every other) and the Cables just match with tiny anxiety on the box. This is a fantastic product if you have limited desk space but nevertheless want to use numerous computers. I have mine set up such that I use one laptop for media (movies, music, web browsing, ect) and the other personal computer is my game station.I would also propose this product if you currently have two monitors as you can have one particular monitor devoted to your key Pc and the other can switch between the towers. This is good if you game (like I do) and you can still watch what is going on in your game whilst carrying out some web browsing on the other personal computer.Just as a reminder, you can use a single keyboard and mouse with this device to manage multiple computers. You will hear the "Oh no! You disconnected a USB device" sound from windows every single time you switch in between computer systems but you can disable this and is not very annoying.

Low-cost - ฟ with a promotion code, and totally free shipping. Keyboard interface is terrible. Often just constantly repeats the last key pressed. Unusable. It was as well inexpensive to get uptight about sending back, and then I forgot to do it inside the 30 days. I'm sure new-egg would have replaced it with yet another one particular that may possibly have worked, but now I'm out ฟ. Oh, well.

USB, enables complete use of special keyboard functionality (so your multimedia keys and the LCD on a G15 function), low price. Not DVI. Status indicator LED is left/right selection, at a distance you can't inform which pc is active. Distinct colored LEDs for the different computer systems is better. Many of the greater priced KVM's have keyboard emulation as a feature. The major benefit of keyboard emulation is you can set a hotkey to switch between computers. The downside is keyboard emulation does not pass the keyboard signal directly to the laptop, it's not a "real" USB connection. So if you have a multimedia keyboard or a G15 you do not want keyboard emulation.

I've applied other KVM switches prior to but this is the best one I've utilized. It switches quick among the two computer systems and there's hardly a lag time. The usb devices also perform quickly after switching. The cords are lengthy so that's good if the computer systems are far from every other and the monitor and I like the indicator lights that show which pc is utilizing the monitor. I haven't located any but. If you're worried about looks then I guess you wouldn't like possessing more cords laying all more than the location. I bought this for my mom due to the fact she works at home and only has one monitor now for her perform Computer and her Linux Computer that I cobbled with each other for her.

Functions as advertised - switch is trustworthy and everything functions appropriately. A significant drawback is that the switch doesn't manage high resolutions acceptable. I run my monitors at 1600x1200 and with that resolution the switch significantly reduces the sharpness of the show.

No compatibility troubles discovered on a selection of hardware. No funky keyboard combination to switch screens. Operates as expected with no issue. Nothing so far. The cable for the KVM switch is a little thin. Hoping like heck the cats don't chomp on it.

Remote Switch, Functions with my wireless keyboard and mouse, cheap. VGA and USB cables a tiny on the short side. the two PCs I am working with are next to every single other so the cable length wasnt a difficulty for me. It may possibly be for other individuals. the remote switching button has a actually long cable.

Incredibly easy to have 1 monitor, keyboard and mouse for two computer systems. Unfortunately, KVM switch stopped operating right after about six months. I contacted Rosewill client service following KVM stopped operating and received a new 1 within a week. This was the very first time I bought a Rosewill product, but simply because of their good buyer service, I will undoubtedly obtain from them in the future.

Performs great straightforward to install. I use this for pc repairs and updates. Functions on old and new systems. Switch functions quick. Have used far more costly ones but this is the very best so far. Not genuinely a con but boot up is a small longer on older systems. Cables could be a little longer. For these who want audio get a stereo headphone splitter at the dollar store or right here. I purchased when on sale and will acquire a different next sale.As generally Newegg ships quickly and is the only place I shop.

The small wired remote button sits on the desk for effortless access. This is quite a style improvement over the clunky box with wires coming out of the front and the back, like most KVMs. Utilizes 2 USB ports -- 1 for the mouse and one other for the keyboard. I have a different KVM that uses 1 USB per machine for both the keyboard and mouse, but the mouse and keyboard connectors are PSǘ. Not positive if it's conceivable to combine the two with a USB keyboard and mouse.

Pretty Effortless to Set-up. Just Plug and play...Advised for the cost.. If you're using a monitor @ 1024x768 and switch to next monitor, in some cases it adjustments the resolution of the monitor...Hard to explain, but monitor resolution is impacted by this in some cases..No biggie, you just have to resize it again.

This switch is great and makes me wish I had obtained one particular years ago. It switches among two computers effortlessly and fairly quickly. I delight in pushing that button to switch between systems, nearly Obsessively, Compulsively, and Disorderly! :-) The cord length for the switch is long adequate to have the connector on the floor with the switch on the desktop. The whole solution appears to be higher high-quality. The blue D-Sub connectors are economical but operate well with no concerns. It can be hard to screw/unscrew the fasteners by hand. I have noticed much better D-Sub connectors. It could assist to space the two USB ports a little farther from the D-Sub port. If the D-Sub connector was a small wider or the USB connectors are a little wider, then they would not all match. I have seasoned no video difficulties at all. Video matters others have noticed might possibly depend on the high-quality of the monitor. I use an old but high top quality 20" ViewSonic CRT monitor (軸 in 2001) with this switch and it works completely at 1280x1024 and 1600x1200 resolution. The video switches within two seconds at the most with no video degradation. My use for this switch is for repairing and setting up computer systems. Stability tests can take days to determine full stability. This permits me to test two computer systems at the same time. An completely fantastic tool.
