5 out of 5 eggsOverall good KVM

Pros: Keyboard shortcut and physical button for switching between systems. It's nice to have the option to use either method. Fast switching, good price for the features. No separate power needed. It makes it very versatile.

Cons: Feature rich keyboards are a problem (see below)

Other Thoughts: I could get the KVM working with my high dpi gaming mouse, but my MS Sidewinder x4 gaming keyboard has been a problem. The keyboard didn't work with windows 7 64 or windows 8, but did (without the special features working) on windows XP (32bit). I suspect I can get it working on Linux or by using a POWERED USB hub off the keyboard port. If you are having trouble with your mouse, the mouse emulation mode off an rescan settings (see the manual) are your friends.

2 out of 5 eggsWell it works - Kind of

Pros: Does exactly what is supposed to do. Great video quality.

Cons: It locks up my primary monitor if my laptop is not in the docking station and it ALWAYS defaults to the docking station. "ALWAYS - SIGH" Swapped cables, does not make any difference. Have to actually unplug the power cable to my Asus monitor to get video if I forget to hit the power button "shutdown the monitor 1st" after I awake my PC from sleep mode if my laptop is not in the dock. Another negative, not really the KVM's fault but now my monitor is messing up. Most likely due to the power cycles.

Other Thoughts: Would buy again if this was for two PC's. Laptop owners be forewarned.

1 out of 5 eggsMouse does not work

Pros: small and space saving. Newegg ships very fast.

Cons: Mouse does not work. I tried to google. I tried different mice. I tried to power off computers and make sure mouse plugs into the mouse port and keyboard plugs into the keyboard port. Everything is wired, no unified receiver etc. The good-looking shiny box just does not work with mouse.

Other Thoughts: Maybe it's just that I am lucky. In any case, I am happy to stick to the facts to provide a data point for public good.

1 out of 5 eggsKVM Short life

Pros: compact

Cons: It lasted about 2 min. then it lost the keyboard. no power to keyboard. circuit board must be built to min. standards and not to quality standards. Needs to go back to NewEgg

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 GCS932ub is an emulated KVM so the emulation is looking for a basic 102 Key wired keyboard. If anything else is used there is no guarantee it will work correctly. 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 eggsWorks with a wireless combo.. sort of

Pros: It's small and not powered - great. And the switch button is awesome (my keyboards don't have scroll lock buttons or you have to hold the Fn key to trigger them). Everything just works, no repeated keys so far, no lagging mouse or keyboard.

It's pretty fast and I do have this switch working with a wireless Logitech MX5500 combo - mouse emulation MUST be turned off.

I have not been able to get it to work with Logitech's wireless K400r multimedia keyboard.

Cons: Separate USB keyboard & mouse cables/inputs. Not quite sure why they can't mux to a single USB cable (like a hub).

Other Thoughts: Wish it had more than 2 input ports - 3 or 4 in the same form factor. The next in-class 4-port USB/DVI model from IOGEAR costs over $800.

5 out of 5 eggs*THE* KVM for people who need DVI and USB

Pros: Top feature: that button is the coolest. No keystrokes. no fumbling for the box with the spider of wires hanging out. One little button at the end of one little wire sitting on or next to your keyboard. Tap: computer switched. Elegant and simple.

Next best feature: CABLES! Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is with KVM's that don't include cables, especially switches with only 2 ports? Okay, if there are more than 2 ports, you may want to remove the cables from ports you aren't using, but why on Earth would a KVM ever not have cables with it? It burns me up for my customers to get all burned up when I tell them that their expensive KVM switch is doubling in price because they need cables. Hooray for included cables. Oh, and they are plenty long for any sensible application, too.

It can switch a powered USB hub between the machines as well, so you don't have to move and pen drive or external hard drive or web cam that you are using back and forth. Cool.

Most people know that using a KVM compromises video quality to some degree. Well, that is pretty much universally true with VGA switches. Since the signal being switched here is digital and remains that way until just before it hits your eyes, there is zero quality degradation. It looks great.

Cons: The only thing I can think of is what the other reviewer said: make the mouse emulation easier to turn on/off. It befuddles knuckleheadss who don't read the directions. I was able to get it on the first try, however.

Other Thoughts: It is safe to ignore any review that says that this KVM does not work with a unifying receiver (that is, a single wireless receiver for the keyboard and mouse). All you have to do is turn off the mouse emulation. RTF(ine)M, guys!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with Logitech Unifying Wireless Keyboard/Mouse

Pros: Bought this to work with the wireless Logitech K520 keyboard/mouse which uses a unifying USB receiver. I could not get this to work at first, but after research I found that the mouse emulation needed to be turned off in this KVM for unifying receivers. The only way to tell if mouse emulation is really turned off is to open Word (or Notepad) and press Scroll Lock - Scroll Lock - F4 - Enter to get a report of what is on/off. Several times I entered the key combination to turn off mouse emulation, but it was not really turned off. I think the timing of the key presses may be important for the KVM to recognize the commands. To turn off mouse emulation it is Scroll Lock - Scroll Lock - m - Enter. Be sure to then list the options in Word (or Notepad) to make sure it is really turned off. Then plug the unifying receiver into the Mouse USB port and let Windows install the drivers.

Cons: Instructions should be clearer in how to work with unifying keyboard/mouse. You need a wired USB keyboard/mouse in order to turn off mouse emulation. Why can't this be a switch on the KVM?

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

Pros: Switches digitally via a desktop button and allows keyboard switching via scroll lock/enter keys.
Switches with a slight delay, but picture fidelity is much better than analog models.
Both audio and video are switched.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: After a year one audio channel on one computer dropped in volume. IO has a good RMA process and they answer the phone with minimal wait. No wasted time, very efficient. They do not cross ship but said the turnaround time at their end is two days max.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work with Wireless

Pros: Seems like a Nice, compact design with pushbutton remote.

Cons: Does not work with Logitech with Unifying receiver (i.e K520, MK710. I tried turning off the emulation mode, reset and cycle power on everything. Do not buy this if you're expecting it to work with wireless. Also, the audio cables are short and bundled with the DVI so they do not reach around the side of the two laptops I am trying to connect to.
