3 out of 5 eggsNOT for gaming, despite description

Pros: Item works, just not well.
Handles HDMI.

Cons: Causes mouse to lag.
Doesn't support all functions of gaming keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to switch between my work laptop and gaming tower. The switch works, but causes so much lag that the mouse was very difficult to use for regular tasks, much less gaming. I have a Sidewinder X4 keyboard, and several of the keys would not function through the switch.

The KVM switch seems to work fine for regular keyboards/mice, but it can't handle the load of gaming peripherals. It looks like dishing out more money for one meant to handle faster speeds would be the way to go for gamers.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. The GCS62HU is an emulated KVM so there in no guarantee if anything other than a 102 key wired keyboard is uses however if you turn off the mouse emulation it will most with most mice. 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.

4 out of 5 eggsworks well

Pros: works as described. functions as i needed it to. would buy it again if needed.

Cons: i did notice there was a high pitched squeal through my mic when using my headset on teamspeak. not sure if it was the program or the device, but the squeal went away when i put the mic directly into the pc. razer carcharias mic/headset

5 out of 5 eggsBasic, but very good

Pros: Simple, effective, works well. Install is straightforward and KVM switching worked fine. Hotkey (Scrl Lock +Scrl Lock + Enter) to change worked fine. One stroke longer than my old Belkin OmniView, but acceptable. Works fine with my linux laptop and linux/win7 dual-boot desktop.

Cons: Had troubles with audio initially. It would cut off or not work at all. Issue was that the HDMI connections with audio were being picked up by my monitor (through which my headset also runs) but no audio ran through it. Switched the monitor to PC (vs. HDMI) and it's fine. This was NOT an issue with the KVM. I also disabled KB emulation. Cables are a little short for my desk (tower on left, laptop dock on right of an L-shaped desk), so consider some extension cables.

Other Thoughts: Would buy again

3 out of 5 eggsSeems okay, but...

Pros: Straightforward and seems to work rather well for the KVM switching. Hotkey to switch (Scroll Lock + Scroll Lock + Enter) seems a bit unusual, but works well.

Cons: Audio has been an issue so far. I have it hooked to a Linux laptop (Mint 14) and a tower that dual-boots Win7 or Linux (Mint 15). On Win startup, I hear the start chimes (to login screen) through switch but they get cut off near their end. Thereafter, no audio comes through. Linux laptop gets nothing. I am waiting to talk to IOGEAR support on chat (tomorrow), but am concerned about this so far. Cables were a bit short for my needs (laptop docked on right side of monitor and tower on left end of desk = REALLY tight cables. Buy some extension cords if you have a larger work area.
Also, IOGEAR, if USB power is a concern, please, just add a transformer so we don't have to worry about it ever.

Other Thoughts: This unit replaced my ancient Belkin OmniView 4port KVM which died after 12+ years of service. I have not yet tested the mic through the KVM, but until I can at least hear, that seems secondary. If I get the audio issues satisfied and the mouse/kb (mine are both wired veterans, not gamer models) performance is up to par, I look forward to upgrading my review.

3 out of 5 eggsPC good, MACBOOK not so much

Pros: Small footprint, easy to configure. Great picture on the PC. Switched seamlessly between MACBOOK PRO and PC.

Cons: When switching to the Macbook Pro, the display was snowy at a native 1920x1200 display. If I switched to 1080p, the display was stable, but the resolution presented slightly blurred text. Switching back to full res display reintroduced the "snow". Bypassing this KVM then the display was perfect. I sent it back to Newegg as "incompatible". Do not get this if you want full resolution on a Macbook Pro.

3 out of 5 eggsFairly Good

Pros: Let's me share my big monitor with my Macbook Pro and family windows rig.

Cons: Video rendering on the Macbook side has been problematic. The resolution is great, with no real issues at 1080p. However, the screen image tends to black out randomly when connected to the macbook. Rather annoying when it happens!

5 out of 5 eggsWork well

Pros: Works well with Mac Mini and Dell PC.
Using physical switch is much better other products that use keyboard hotkey combos to switch devices.
Seems very durable.

Cons: Somewhat expensive.

1 out of 5 eggsDissapointed

Pros: It did video, audio, and keyboard on one pc

Cons: I have a gamer's mouse, which can be found here:
Tek Republic TM Black 7 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 3600 dpi Gaming Mouse
It does not work with either computer through the kvm. Additionally, the hdmi does not work with the Surface Pro. The monitor just keeps flickering on and off again, rendering the kvm pointless to begin with. I expected a higher quality product when I bought it.

Other Thoughts: If you have a low grade mouse and keyboard and don't expect to hook it up to a tablet, then this is for you. Otherwise, good luck.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. In order for hot key operation and instantaneous recognition of the keyboard and mouse when switching computers, our KVMs emulate a standard wired 102 key keyboard and wired generic 2-button scroll wheel mouse. We cannot guarantee the use of wireless (including Bluetooth), multifunction, gaming, integrated card readers, or programmable keyboards and mice. This KVM also requires a mouse and keyboard be connected to their respective console ports, so we cannot guarantee the use of docking stations, port replicators or USB / PS2 adapters. 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 eggsWorks Well

Pros: simple
cheap
works with both linux based machines and windows.

Cons: Occasionally missing HDMI sound when Windows boots without being selected to display. This is not a problem with my Fedora box.

Other Thoughts: I have had this device since 12/30/2011 and it has performed well.
