The Belkin OmniView 2-port Reverse KVM Switch lets two users share one PC or KVM switch seamlessly. Featuring autoswitching technology, it is ideal for training environments where a second user must be shown how to perform specific tasks, or for using specialized secondary keyboards, monitors, and mice or trackballs in addition to the standard devices.
Allows two users to share one PC or KVM switch seamlessly.
Nice when things work better than advertised :-)
This review is from: BELKIN OmniView SOHO F1D201 2-port Reverse KVM Switch
Pros: Automatic switching of keyboard/mouse! Just bump the mouse or hit a key, and it automatically switches to that keyboard. There's a manual button on the device (that I thought I was gonna have to use every time I switched stations), but KM switching is automatic
Cons: Video is split. Might need a healthier video card, as it does not switch monitors, but runs them both at the same time.
Other Thoughts: See cons above. I'm using a Shuttle mini ATX comp using the built in mobo video card, and when it gets hot, displays get fuzzy. I had issues with this comp before, but splitting the vid seems to make it worse. Ordered a AGP vid card and I'll see if that helps. Optimistic.
