A KVM switch (Keyboard-Video-Mouse) is a major boon to anyone who has to work with more than one computer. You can change computers without having to give up the keyboard and monitor you're already using, sometimes via the keyboard itself. Imagine the space and money you'll save, only having to buy one monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

After saying that, KVM switches stop being exciting pretty quickly, so let's look at things to shop for. Will it switch your speakers, too? How about your microphone? Is it USB only, or can it handle older connections? Hardware button, keyboard command control, or both? Does it draw its power from the computer, or does it need a power adapter? How many computers do you need to switch? (Most KVM switches will handle two computers; some can handle more.)

The LINKSKEY LKV-9308 is an 8-port USB PS/2 Rackmount KVM Switch that is designed for computer/server management on a central console in corporate, factory as well as in campus computing environment. PC selection and operation is easy via the front-panel push buttons, keyboard hotkeys or OSD menu. Is this the switch for you? Check it out and see!

4 out of 5 eggsworks well, dont forget cables

Pros: support usb only connections, good for laptop/legacy free machines.
simple key strokes. stable operation. Also supports standard PS/2 kbd mouse cables. firmware upgradable, presumably

Cons: sometimes leaves artifacts on screens. Firmware upgrade in future may fix. DVI support word be nice

Other Thoughts: dont forget to order the (proprietary) cables for as many machines as u hook up to this beast.
