Don't trust the one stars

Strengths of the product

-Economic -Decent, easy to program KVM switching software for programming hotkeys to switch between computers -Good quality image and flexibility of purchasing longer KVM cables where it is necessary, a significant fault of the IOGear designs that have the cables built in to the switch.

Weaknesses of the product

- No Mounting hardware - Audio and Video plugs on the KVM cable need to be a little bit longer, not good for setups where the video card is far from the sound jack. - 1 of the switches had a power surge of some sort and fried the firmware inside of it. I don't recommend using it without a surge protector in between, even though my surge protector is still fine it flipped the breaker when it died. Incident was initiated when switch button was pressed and the power was loose behind it.

Additional Comments

The first review was posted over a year ago and drivers that come with the device now support windows 7 quite nicely. It is also the only KVM switch thus far that I have been able to use seamlessly between a windows 7 and OSX 10.5.8 successfully. I have purchased several of these over the last year for various stations, the ones that I purchased that were not this model were all VGA based, and they actually crapped out faster. If you are looking for a DVI connection on a budget, pick this.

Might be able to give a review if it worked.

Strengths of the product

none compared to competing products, even from the same manufacturer

Weaknesses of the product

USB hub DOA, causes device not recognized error, prevents clean boot/shutdown of Windows 7 & 8 (RTM) Awkward cables with cheap feel, no seperate Audio input, as that is integrated into the KVM cables after entering as 3.5mm TRS connectors, which renders the device partially useless when your have specialized audio requirements.

Additional Comments

Skip this and spend the extra ducats on a black, SV series KVM. Those are worth what they charge.

Totally disappointed

Strengths of the product

None

Weaknesses of the product

- Design is awkward having the input connections located in front.
- Audio transfer is manual, you have to select from the dropdown menu of the applet where to port the audio
- usb power are lost after 2-weeks of usage
- can't handle vmware commands. . . once you shutdown your vmplayer, it is thinking you are shutting down the system hence automatically port the display to another computer

Additional Comments

- This product is totally useless aside from its high price. The quality of this product is not good at all compared with iogear!
