The GCS1808KIT KVM is a combo VGA switch that includes 8 KVM cables - Set of 4 USB and 4 PS/2 KVM cables.

Access and control of up to 64 computers from a single console (keyboard, mouse, and monitor). As many as 8 additional switches can be cascaded* bringing the total number of connected computers to 64 computers that can be controlled from a single keyboard-monitor-mouse console. A custom ASIC provides an auto-sensing function that recognizes the position of each station on the installation, eliminating the need to manually set the position with DIP switches. Additionally, the GCS1808KIT features high density SPHD 15-pin instead of the usual 25-pin connectors thus allowing for a compact design and installation in a 1U system rack. (*Cascade compatible with GCS1716 for control over 128 computers)

The GCS1808KIT includes one USB port located on the front panel for easy access and sharing of any USB peripherals. Setup is fast and easy; plugging cables into their appropriate ports is all that is needed. The switch supports both USB and PS/2 connections for the console and computers. The GCS1808KIT intercepts keyboard input directly, thus eliminating the need for any software configuration. Switching between computers can be easily accomplished either by manually pressing the front panel push button port LEDs, entering hotkey combinations from the keyboard, or via a menu driven multilingual on-screen display (OSD) system. A convenient auto-scan feature permits automatic scanning and monitoring of activities on all connected.

4 out of 5 eggsSorry, but yes, button breakage IS a significant issue... (#2)

Pros: This is meant to be an edit of my review of 10/30/14.

Cons: Even ANOTHER button broke today (port #2), so now my first three buttons are stuck in the "pressed" position, level with the console panel, unusable.

Other Thoughts: Don't get me wrong, I still think this is a nice KVM switch. The cables are of very high quality, it's great to be able to switch between PS/2 & USB systems with one device, the speed & video quality are excellent. However, having to invoke the keyboard-based switching options to get to (so far) three of my systems, is a PAIN, & NOT in the least what I anticipated having to ever do back when the purchase was made.

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.

4 out of 5 eggsSorry, but yes, button breakage IS a significant issue...

Pros: Purchased mine in May of 2012 and it's been absolutely trouble-free...

Cons: ...until September of 2014. That's when the FIRST button broke (port #3). I do not "mash" these buttons, I simply apply gentle pressure. Yet a second button died about a week ago (October 2014, port #1).

Other Thoughts: Thank goodness they provided the keyboard-switch option (two rapid-succession taps of the "scroll lock" button) or I'd have had to replace this unit (yes, I use all eight ports). This item carries a three-year warranty. I wonder if I can get IOGear to replace or repair this - or even send me the parts & instructions so I could repair it. How long will it be before more of these eventually-fragile buttons die??

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. Please feel to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. for more information regarding this problem. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product

Pros: Manual & OSD Port Selections. Solid product

Cons: The person who placed the incorrect cables in the shipping box

Other Thoughts: Excellent customer service reps worked diligently with me to get the proper P/S2 cables that should have been shipped originally. Unit is now mounted in the rack and working flawlessly connected to 6 servers in a commercial production environment. Excellent KVM rivaling more expensive brands. Thank you IOGEAR for responding to my original post. Nothing wrong with the product.

1 out of 5 eggsIn the hands of Customer Service

Pros: Nicely Packaged

Cons: Accessory Cables sent did not match the advertised contents. Supposed to have 4 USB cables and 4 P/S2 cables. Arrived with 7 USB cables and NO P/S2 cables.

Other Thoughts: Unit not installed yet. C/S first advised I would have to deal with the MFG. MFG box was sealed and not tampered with. Incorrect cables packaged at the warehouse level. C/S rep said she would check the warehouse to see if they had the correct cables and call me. No callback after 12 hours.
