5 out of 5 eggsWorking fine for win10 and osx

Pros: -This KVM is easy to install and working fine with my old Mac and desktop PC
-There is no need for installation to use this KVM
-Easy switch Mac and PC using scroll lock key
-Working as I expected by reading the manufacture description

Cons: -I don't have any idea now
-But it would be better if the color is black, because I would put that somewhere between my Mac and PC, then forget about it. Then dust will stain them over time.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of junk

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Can only be switched by keyboard. Very slow to respond.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. The GCS632U is our high selling emulated KVM with a very low failure rate. This is a starter level emulated KVM that is only hot key controlled. The response time is not slow unless you are using a non standard keyboard (104 key wired keyboard). This is because of the built in emulation. All IOGEAR keyboards including wireless will work with IOGEAR KVM's. IOGEAR makes a variety of KVM to suite almost all needs. To better service you and understand your set up, please feel to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

1 out of 5 eggsstrangest KVM I have ever had

Pros: Easy to install, Long cables.

Cons: This thing just does NOT work right. When I boot up the computers it cannot find the Keyboard but the mouse works fine. Tried switching ports on the KVM (plugged keyboard into mouse and mouse into keyboard) NOW my keyboard and mouse work but it won't switch between computers. I tried letting it sit over night unplugged and attempted it again in the morning with the same results. Keyboard will ONLY work when plugged into the mouse port, but will only switch computers when plugged into the keyboard port.

Other Thoughts: Checked online for this issue, and I didn't see it listed anywhere so I am assuming it is just a faulty KVM. I like IoGear but do not like this model. Give me separate plugs for the mouse and keyboard.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. The GCS632U is an emulated KVM. Our KVM’s emulate a standard 102 key, keyboard and generic 2-button scroll wheel mouse. The reason for this emulation is to allow the hot key functions to operate. A side effect of the emulation is that in most cases the special key sequences required for gamming, and key programming will not translate correctly through the KVM, for gamming we recommend connecting directly to the computer. Our KVM’s emulate a standard 102 key, keyboard and generic 2-button scroll wheel mouse. The reason for this emulation is to allow the hot key functions to operate. A side effect of the emulation is that in most cases the special key sequences required for gamming, and key programming will not translate correctly through the KVM, for gamming we recommend connecting directly to the computer.

Although our KVMs will work with most wireless keyboard mouse sets, we cannot promise an individual multimedia / programmable keyboard and mouse set will work through the KVM.

Due to the large number of manufacturer's and each manufacturer's wide range of models it is impossible to maintain any meaningful compatibility list. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Only One I Use

Pros: I have several of these in my shop for the repair bench and in my office for the graphics design department in my shop.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I use these exclusively because they're very high quality and cost effective. I repair computers and do graphics design with workstations. These KVM switches are more than adequate for my needs and highly recommend them.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't get it if you have mac with Thunderbolt

Pros: Works fine if you are connecting 2 window PCs

Cons: Does not work with new MacBooks. If you have a newer macbook pro don't get it. I just purchased a new Mac Book Pro, I purchased the thuderport adapter to vga and hooked it up. The screen does not show correctly. When connecting the computer directly to the monitor it displays just fine. I called IOGEAR and was told the adapter will not work properly when going from digital to analog.

Other Thoughts: Had I known that I would have bough a different brand

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. IOGEAR will not say it will not work however there is no guarantee the GCS632U will work with video adapters. Not all adapters work the same. We have had the best results testing apple adapters with this KVM. The GCS632U is a VGA analog KVM. Thunderbolt is digital so there is no guarantee the GCS632U will work correctly with thsi type of adapter. This has been forwarded to the product management team. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

5 out of 5 eggsa great piece of equipment

Pros: This is a great KVM switch. The construction is really solid, the built-in cables are an excellent 6' long. The flexibility it allows is surprising: you can redefine the 'swap key' to be anything you want (not that I needed to -- I'm perfectly happy with <Scr Lk> <Scr Lk>. I'd buy another one of these in a heartbeat.

Cons: none that I know of

Other Thoughts: I love getting equipment of this level of quality from Newegg.

2 out of 5 eggsIogear KVM switch

Pros: Easy to setup

Cons: Device produced wavy lines across monitor after installing

Other Thoughts: This KVM switch was not at all what I was expecting. I am very dissatisfied with this product, and am unable to use it as when I hooked it up, I immediately got wavy lines across my monitor. I am going to return this product for a refund.

Manufacturer Response:

First, thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. The product should not behave as you described. Since the unit is backed by IOGEAR's 3 year warranty feel free to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. Again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

2 out of 5 eggsYou need seperate keyboard and mouse inputs

Pros: It works, somewhat

Cons: You cannot use a wireless mouse and keyboard combo that uses the same receiver for both the mouse and keyboard. If you plug the receiver into the mouse port on the KVM, the mouse works, but the hotkeys don't, so that isn't functional. If you plug the receiver into the keyboard USB port on the KVM, you have mouse capability, but the hotkeys to switch from computer to computer don't work. FYI.

Other Thoughts: I need to look for a better KVM. This one doesn't cut it. I haven't reviewed the item completely so I don't know if it warned about this ahead of time. It may be my fault.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. The GCS632U will work with any of the IOGEAR wireless keyboards and mice that use a unified receiver. No guarantee with any other brand. Our KVM’s emulate a standard 102 key, keyboard and generic 2-button scroll wheel mouse. The reason for this emulation is to allow the hot key functions to operate. A side effect of the emulation is that in most cases the special key sequences required for gamming, and key programming will not translate correctly through the KVM, for gamming we recommend connecting directly to the computer.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT

Pros: Solid cabling and connectors. Simple operation. High compatibility.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I don't use the audio portion of the IOGEAR GCS632U so I can't speak to it's quality there. I own several of these, some for multiple years. Never had a problem with any of them.

2 out of 5 eggsSmall Home Office Setup

Pros: Does what it's suppose to do. I have it hooked up between an XP computer and a Windows 7 computer. Purchased these specifically for the handling of Windows 7. Keyboard, mouse and sound work fine, no complaints there.

Cons: Since purchasing this back in Nov. of 2013 I'm having constant irritable frustrating problem of the screen going blank for a few seconds whether it's connected to the XP computer or Windows 7. I contacted support and followed their advice but, nothing they suggested corrected this problem. I really like the compact size of this unit and was hoping I could suggest this product to several of my business clients. But, I cannot.

Other Thoughts: None
