The IOGEAR 2-port USB DVI Dual-Link Secure KVM Switch allows one USB console to control 2 computers and offers additional security features for government and military environment where security is imperative. The IOGEAR GCS1212TAA is NIAP-CERTIFIED - Validated to EAL2+ security requirements, with Peripheral Sharing Switch Protection Profile v2.1, which is the most updated level of validation.

Additional hardware security includes tamper-evident tape, chassis intrusion detection, and tamper-proof hardware, while software security includes restricted USB connectivity – non HIDs (Human Interface Devices) are ignored when switching – an isolated channel per port that makes it impossible for data to be transferred between secure and unsecure computers, and automatic clearing of the keyboard and mouse buffer.

By combining physical security with controlled USB connectivity, the GCS1212TAA gives you the means to consolidate multiple workstations of various security classification levels with one keyboard, monitor and mouse (KVM) console.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Perfectly

Pros: Works just the way you'd expect a KVM switch to. Having previously used other KVM switches that dropped their video when switching and hung up a PC when booting if not selected before booting this is a welcome change. Just does what its supposed to do.

Cons: A bit expensive and New Egg doesn't carry the cables to connect it to the PC's. You can order the cables on their site but they are sold and shipped by a third party vendor. Doesn't seem to make sense to sell the switch but not the cables.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Solid case, works as described without any negative surprises. Video is as clear as it was with direct connections. Sound comes through clear without any added noise or bleed from the other channel and switches without any "pop" or anything.

Cons: None noticed.

Other Thoughts: I'm using the cables with item number N82E16812225037.
My monitor is 1280x1024 so I can't speak to whether or not this device works well at full dual link DVI resolution.
