2 out of 5 eggsWorks ok

Pros: I ordered this so that I could use my Mac, Linux, and Windows box on the same KVM. It worked fine for Mac and Windows, but it wouldn't regain the keyboard and mouse when going back to Linux (Ubuntu).

Cons: It wouldn't regain the keyboard and mouse when going back to Linux (Ubuntu).

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this to someone using Ubuntu. I'm not sure if all distro's would act the same way. My experience was not great. I switched back to a IOGear 2 port USB KVM that I was using before. It works fine.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. Linux will sometimes require additional drivers for your keyboard, mouse or video connection. The GCS22U is compatible with Linux. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, no complaints

Pros: Simple installation, quick response when switching between computers, easy to use.

Cons: None that I have run in to

Other Thoughts: I have this installed with two rack-mounted servers running Server 2012 and another PC running Win7 Pro. I did not power anything down to install the KVM switch. All machines recognized the keyboard and mouse without a problem. The actual device is large enough that you can use a label maker to print off labels for what machines are connected to which ports. I'm getting ready to order a second one for use in another office.

2 out of 5 eggsIogear 4 Port KVM

Pros: Separate button for swiching

Cons: 2 USB plugs per cable. Why 2?
Short in video cable on one port, Failure out of the box

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. The reason for two USB connections on the KVM cable is one USB connection is for the mouse and keyboard, the other connection is to power the GCS24U. 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 eggsAlmost decent

Pros: This does everything I expect a KVM switch to do.

Cons: But I bought this specific switch to get me to higher resolutions I.E. 2048 x 1536. Instead the highest Width I get is 768.

It's everything I bought a KVM switch for, But absolutely nothing from what I chose THIS KVM switch for. (Higher Resolution)

Other Thoughts: There's a button. I like this button, this button is my friend I touch to switch between pcs

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. 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.

5 out of 5 eggsGood KVM Switch

Pros: Plug and play functionality allows for ease of use. LEDs allow users to know which computer it is currently connected to. Device does not require an AC adapter and is powered by the two USB cables used to connect KVM to the computer. Good features for the price.

Cons: Slight delay in detecting devices may bother some users but the time spent waiting is almost negligible.

Other Thoughts: Would buy again in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsIOGear 4 port USB KVM Switch

Pros: Does what it's supposed to do. Haven't had any issues unlike the 2 port version.

Cons: No port info displayed on screen. No port numbers on the cables. I haven't looked into it but I believe no keyboard short cut. No sound ports and the switch on a rope is a bit of a PITA. But I knew all this going in so I can't take any stars off for these, this is just a FYI for any one buying one of these.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this item for anyone with a collection of junk like me.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this KVM Switch!

Pros: Very compact, uses USB ports for mouse and keyboard instead of PS2 ports. Includes full set of 4 cable to PC. I like the pushbutton to select which PC to use.

Cons: None that I know of.

Other Thoughts: Very happy to have this device after having a switch that had cables coming out on 3 sides that took up a lot of space.

4 out of 5 eggsNot Instant Switching

Pros: 45 inch cables (max reach) good for 3.5 foot each.
Small size and simple to connect and use. Remote switch is a nice plus. USB device works well with XP x64, Win 7 and Win 8.

Cons: Slow to respond on Windows 7 while USB is detected yet reacts nearly instantly on XP x64. This could be hardware or driver related yet no other issues exist other that having to wait 2-5 seconds for keyboard when switching to Windows 7 system, the mouse and video are usually less than 3 seconds.

Other Thoughts: As with any USB device, it is released and again detected by the hardware/software when switched. My old KVM was PS2/VGA and was exempt from this loss/detection issue.

5 out of 5 eggsBest SOHO KVM

Pros: Fast, responsive, easy cable management, trivial setup, trivial machine toggle method.

Cons: I am a bit worried about the thin gauge of the cable to the control/toggle switch, but so far so good.

Other Thoughts: Simple and effective design. I did get it on sale, but even at the standard price, this is incredible for a 4x1 KVM with USB. No fancy control key sequences necessary. Keep it simple, and keep it stable. There is not a whole lot more to say, because it is really just a great cable management system for 4 machines and one control setup. I am not sure why more KVMs take this same straight to the point approach. I absolutely recommend this for anyone wanting a fast, cheap, but rock solid KVM solution!

4 out of 5 eggsTad bit finicky

Pros: Simple setup, clear LEDs on base

Cons: Doesn't always pick up the keyboard, have to cycle thru again to get the switch to recognize the keyboard. Even had to unplug/replug the keyboard to the switch to get it to recognize.

Other Thoughts: Cheap Cheap Cheap. if you are going to do a LOT of switching, invest in something a bit more reliable. Mine still works, but I'm already looking for a replacement.
