1 out of 5 eggsJunk.

Pros: Would be a great product -- if it could be counted on.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: I bought this KVM to replace the GCS42UW6. The 42UW6 doesn't emulate a keyboard or mouse, so it will support any number of weird keyboard and mouse configurations, but the downside to it is that Windows 7 is a giant pile of junk, and will stop responding to keyboard/mouse input after enough switches back and forth.

This unit, the GCS632UW6 DOES emulate a keyboard and mouse, so as far as the operating systems involved are concerned, nothing is ever disconnected from them. This eliminates the problem.

I was concerned when I bought this that either my scroll mouse wouldn't work right, or it'd have issues with the fact that both my mouse and keyboard are wireless, but this text I'm writing right now is evidence that that is not a concern. It works beautifully.

I use a standard 104 key keyboard, and a Logitech wireless mouse with scroll button that also does left-right scrolling. All functions as intended. I'd imagine it wouldn't work with one of those weird wireless keyboards with 50 different extra buttons on top or gaming keyboards, but I can't say for sure, as I haven't tried it.

Cons: None. Works as described. Can't ask for much more than that.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a KVM that will handle a wireless keyboard and mouse, and won't appear as a reconnecting/disconnecting set of USB devices to your operating system, this is the unit for you.

Using hotkeys to switch is a big bonus over having to reach over to a KVM aswell.

5 out of 5 eggsSwitches instantly

Pros: Emulates the keyboard for each side so text input switches instantly. Mouse still is added/removed from each computer though, probably because they have more state (programmable input rate etc), but is also instant. This is good because if you want to switch other devices you can use a hub on the mouse port. Special keys like calculator work with a Microsoft keyboard (didn't try others).

Cons: Built-in cables. I don't need the VGA or sound cables (2 monitors, want sound from both computers at once not switched), but I'm stuck with them. The box doesn't have buttons anyway so doesn't need to be on your desk so there's no reason it has to be so small that it can't have connectors.

Other Thoughts: I had another brand that was just a physical USB switch so it added/removed a USB hub, keyboard, and mouse, which with Windows 7 and 8 took about 3-5 seconds and was really annoying. Be sure to put the keyboard and mouse directly in the correct ports, they are only labeled white-on-white on the bottom of the unit.

4 out of 5 eggsGood and reliable.

Pros: Needed a keyboard/mouse switch for two computers. Works easy. Double tap the scroll lock and it's switched. Very reliable so far.

Cons: Mouse and keyboard port emblems looks like braille. I didn't even see it when I first hooked it up. It won't work properly if you don't which I found out the hard way.

Other Thoughts: Doesn't seem to recognize non standard keys. My keyboard has a dedicated calculator, email, web, and My Computer but none of them work. The same keyboard works fine at home. It's a Ducky keyboard, so no driver is provided, so a Microsoft or Logitech will probably work fine, but do take that into account if you have special keys.

Also, I don't use the video part, so I can't comment on that.

5 out of 5 eggsIT'S RELIABLE

Pros: Reliability. I have several of these units that are attached to DVR's all over. I have some in my office and some at home. I have stuck with IOGEAR for many reasons 1) They work. I have not had one die on me yet. 2)They are simple to use. This is a key selling point for my customers. 3) They come with the cables premade into the unit which cuts cost. 4) The quality to cost ratio is better than expected. 5) It switches audio!

Cons: 1) The cables are made into the unit. This can be overcome with extension cables though. 2) There are not any wall mounting holes on the unit. 3) The cable input/output configuration makes the LEDs useless unless you want a large mess of cables sitting on your desk in view. 4) The unit shows up in Windows as a USB Hub. This is only a problem if your network administrator has locked access to USB devices. 5) They do not make a DVI unit for about the same price.

Other Thoughts: All in all, this is a great unit. I have replaced alot of the DLINK and other "CHEAPER" units with IOGEAR. Where they fail and can not connect or recognize the keyboard this unit keeps on going. I have had to replace DVRs, Monitors, and many other components due to high voltage/surge damage, but these units have not been affected by it yet. I also get more features for less. It is not easy to find a KVM with audio that actually works well for less.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great - For a year or two

Pros: Easy to Install.
Easy to Use.
Does exactly what I need.

Cons: Drops keystrokes sometimes.
After about a year or two of continuous use, one of the ports will inevitably die. Usually the mouse, but often the keyboard. It starts with the occasional oddity, like the scroll wheel being locked to "on, scrolling up" sometimes on switching. Windows eventually starts giving an "Unrecognized device" error, and you have to fiddle with it (unplug and replug device or reboot machine) to get it to start working again. After a while of that, the port just flat out dies.

Other Thoughts: I've owned about 8 of these over the last 10 years, starting with their PS2 version and about 4 of these USB versions. They are fantastic for the price, but you should be aware that they wear out in a year or two, so plan on replacing them regularly.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, has audio support

Cons: Doesn't work. Screen flickers constantly, mouse input is very slow, doesn't support 1920x1080 even though it says it does, best I could get was 1280x900. Hot keys only work intermittently.

Other Thoughts: Purchased in the store because I needed a KVM in a pinch, very disappointed, it'll be going back for sure.

4 out of 5 eggsit works

Pros: Easy to set up, no issues once you learn the hotkey combinations.

Cons: I use mac keyboards, so the toggle key had to be changed to their "alternate" setting (control x2). I can deal with that, but it would be nice if that were customizable to any key (I would have liked caps lock--the most useless key since 1981). Since this seems like a simple software change for the manufacturer to implement, I took off 1 egg.

Other Thoughts: I only paid $30 for this KVM, so the fact that it's not customizable is an acceptable trade-off in light of the price. Newegg managed to get the thing shipped to me in under 24 hours. I have no idea how they can be so fast and still have such great prices.
