5 out of 5 eggsCheap KVM that WORKS!

Pros: Comes with everything you need. Color coded for ease of use. Hot keys.
Perfect for someone who needs a cheap, basic KVM.

Cons: Audio connections seemed a lilttle flimsy and the overall looks and feel is very cheap, but remember what you paid for it.

Other Thoughts: Suprisingly if you use a USB mouse and use a usb to ps/2 adapter, the KVM still recognizes the device. I've noticed other KVM's do not support the use of an adapter. So really this is a PS/2 & USB KVM.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with Windows XP and 98SE

Pros: The KVM switch really works great with my Acer 24 inch LCD screen. I have Windows XP and 98SE and it switches between them with no problem. Just had to learn which fast switch key to use.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Just be sure to follow the directions on how to connect your two computers. Connecting in the order per instruction is very important to make sure it works without any problems.

Pros: -works reliably
-keyboard shortcuts are convenient

Cons: -small size lends itself to tangled cables
-keyboard shortcuts are easy to forget?

Other Thoughts: Overall I love this switch, and don't know what I would do without it. I might consider replacing it with a USB version, though.

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't work on Windows 7 machine

Pros: Small, inexpensive and included cables

Cons: Umm, it didn't work. It was purchased to control one Win2k8 Server and one Windows 7 ultimate PC. It works fine on the server, but the keyboard inputs are crazy on the Win7 PC. If I swap cables, the problem stays on the Win7 PC. If I connect the ms/kb directly to the Win7 PC, no problem, so I know it's the KVM.

I emailed Rosewill support over 1 week ago and no response.

Other Thoughts: Pointless to return under warranty due to return shipping costs. Fail.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap, but works

Pros: Works like it should!

Cons: Audio circuit introduces humm and noise. Unusable!

Other Thoughts: Haven't used mic line, but judging by audio line performace, I won't count on it too much.

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill Two Port Slim KVM.

Pros: Decent quality on the cheap! Now I have everything; my Power Mac G4 and my Windoz/ Linux PC are running on the same monitor. Tis Nirvana!
The KVM Switch works great so far and the enclosed cables are adequate for the job.

Cons: Input connection terminals on all sides of the KVM Switch box do not make for a pretty desktop presence. But the switch box is small so that would be a plus I would say.

Other Thoughts: The Mac Keyboard is connected directly to the Mac and cannot be used with the PC. The PC Keyboard and Mouse must be connected to the PC through the KVM Switch Box to provide power to the switch.

4 out of 5 eggsKVM works

Pros: This KVM works OK, I like the way they handle the audio inputs. It comes with all the necessary cables. I don't notice any degradation of my video, everything looks great from both computers.

Cons: I wish this was made wider so they could put the inputs and output all on the rear. The cables come in from all sides so it just CAN NOT sit "nice" on your desk.

Other Thoughts: The hotkeys are OK but I'm spoiled by my Linksys KVM where all I do is double tap my CTRL key to change inputs. This Rosewill isn't quite as simple.
