3 out of 5 eggsLasted 2 years

Pros: Worked at high resolutions. I run my monitor at 1920 x 1080 and it worked great.

Cons: USB ports started to quit on my about a 1.75 year mark. I think products should last 5 years.

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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Switch

Pros: Great switch. I got this to use on my workbench at home and has worked like a charm. Easy switching, USB focus is a nice feature. What I love the most is that there are individual buttons to select your input. I have used other KVMs when you restart a computer the switch switches to another input, this does not do that and makes it great if you need to configure BIOS or whatever on a restart.

Cons: I hade one little hiccup once, no audio was being sent out. Just reset and back to normal. Not worth taking off an egg.

Other Thoughts: If you need a nice durable switch, you won't be disappointed.

1 out of 5 eggsShoddy product

Pros: Video seems to work fine, but thats about it.

Cons: Mouse and keyboard constantly stop working and have to be unplugged/replugged into the switch to get it to recognize them again, this is with multiple standard mice and keyboards on a win7 pro computers plugged into USB, USB2, and USB3 ports. After about half an hour the mouse port on the switch stopped working entirely and now I can only use the USB2 port on the front.

Other Thoughts: Keep looking for a more reliable product.

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.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks but really annoying

Pros: First. It does handle VGA, you cant to use DVI to VGA adapter on both ends but yes it does.

For the most part it works as advertised

Cons: The reason I marked this so low is mainly because of the auto-scan feature. If I had known about this beforehand, I would not have purchased. Rebooting a PC it will autosiwtch to a different source, making it near impossible to get back and catch the bios screen.

Even if I have no other PC's plugged in, it still switches away from the current input.

Until you use it, you'll never realize how frustrating this is. I really wish this could get fixed, but obviously it's not going to happen.

Other Thoughts: Keep looking.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks but kind of a PITA

Pros: Four ports
DVI and USB and audio

Cons: Forgets frequently
Mouse emulation doesn't work

Other Thoughts: For what it is, it works well enough. But pretty frequently it will forget that anything is attached to it. You have to pull the power, wait 10 seconds (doesn't work if you don't), and restore power. Sometimes all it doesn't do is pass the mouse through and you can unplug and replug just that. Mouse emulation emulates a generic two button mouse. If you have anything else, you have to turn that off and plug the mouse into a generic USB port. None of these are fatal flaws, just low level continuous annoyances, mostly reflective of poor programming.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. You would turn off the mouse emulation through the KVM and then you would be able to use you mouse in the mouse console port. This is not a flaw with the KVM it is related to the built in emulation. 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 eggsGreat KVMP

Pros: Very good kvmp switch. I wanted to get the same switch with HDMI option but it was more expansive. I still get the sound via separate audio connectors build into the switch.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: It does not transfer gaming shortcut of the Logitech G500 wired mouse (web browser forward and back buttons, scroll works fine).

2 out of 5 eggspoor quality

Pros: has all the ports i wanted

Cons: ports die, and die, and die, until its useless.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace an older similar model IOGear KVM that died on me just out of warrenty. 6 months of using the new KVM later my mouse started skipping. so i bought a new mouse. then a week later, the keyboard has keys sticking. swap that out and its the same thing with a new keyboard. so plug in the old mouse and keyboard into the usb peripheral ports and both work. so i figure the mouse and keyboard ports have gone bad on the KVM. a few days later, they keyboard starts up doing the same thing. I called IOGear and they want me to pay to ship the bad unit in for repair and wait for news on the surgery. I think that I am done giving money to IOGear.

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. The problem you are having could be related to the keyboard and mouse you are using. This KVM is emulated so there is no guarantee it will work with wireless of special function keyboard and mice. The RMA policy states that the customer will pay one way shipping to IOGEAR and we will pay the shipping back. The GCS1104 carries a 3 year warranty. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a Relief

Pros: Able to function without PS2 connections.
USB front connection works with USB hub.
Switch functions are intuitive

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: With a 4 PC setup and 3 monitors my latest motherboards came with a single ps2 connection necessitating a ps2 y connector to hookup my keyboard and mouse. This was never satisfactory because the ps2 y connectors did not always woke with the mouse. So I had a mouse for every PC, wires and switches. everywhere and a cluttered desk. Installing this KVMP made the clutter disappear. The old 4 port dual monitor KVM now is just used as a dual monitor switch and this KVMP is the master control

4 out of 5 eggsOne annoyance away from being a great product...

Pros: Convenient switching of DVI Video, Speakers, Microphone and USB Keyboard, Mouse and other device(s). Supports USB focus separate from KVMA so can share printers, scanners HDDs, etc. (i.e. PC can continue to access these devices even if KVM switched away to another PC). Clean integrated cables.

Cons: Even momentary power cycle of PC causes connection to switch away to another PC. This can be *very* annoying, especially when so many motherboards these days perform a power cycle during cold reboots. There doesn't seem to be a way to disable this "feature"...

Other Thoughts: 1. Even with cable integration, you still end up with a mess once you toss power, LAN, etc. into the fray. I would love to see a version of this product with LAN support thrown in as well. That is, a GB switch with one WAN port, 4 ports for the PCs (integrated into the PC cables) and 1 or 2 other ports for NAS, printer, etc.)...

2. I have always wondered why the connection of the integrated cables to the unit is done using all of the various connectors. Yes, it's helpful when not using the integrated cables, but 99.99% of the time you *are* using these cables (and the cables are part of the buying decision). Why not have a single connector on the one end, which passes along all of the functionality, and only the other end would have the octopus of connectors of the various types to plug into the PC? This would make the area around the unit a lot cleaner and less complicated...
