5 out of 5 eggsPriced great for dual dvi kvm

Pros: Works great, dual monitors, sound, usb.
Ran it with both 1920x1200 and 1920x1080 monitors.
Includes all the cables you need.
Purchased Apr2011, been using it daily since then.

Cons: The special USB ports for the K and M don't always work. Moved KM to the standard USB port with no issues, just lose the hot keys

Other Thoughts: Probably will buy another to daisychain for another 3 systems.

2 out of 5 eggsNot very easy to use

Pros: 4 Client Ports, with push-button selectors. Dual DVI ports able to use high screen resolutions on both monitors. You can separate the selection of KVM from USB hub, as well as KVM from audio.

The switch comes with all the cables, and each cable is separate which makes it easy to interchange different cables and use adapters or what not.

Cons: Using devices on the USB hub is tough. Every time you plug a device into the hub you lose Mouse control until you re-plug in the Mouse. When you unplug the USB device you again lose the Mouse control until you re-connect it.

The cabling is a mess too. I didn't judge it on cabling alone, this is a common problem, but each of the 8 DVI cables + 4 USB cables + 4 sets of Audio cables are separate from each other rather than one joint cable. This makes for a very messy setup.

Finally, the DVI cables are DVI-I -> the ones with the 4 extra pins in it that work as analog poles. That means they are incompatible with a lot of hardware - only 1 of the 4 computers had a video card which uses DVI-I ports, so I was left to scrounge for DVI-D cables.

Other Thoughts: Don't get me wrong - I like the DVI-I ports, I think the cables should be DVI-D, and those cases you want to do analog pass-through you can use VGA->DVI-I converters. The need for DVI-I cables is the abnormal case, rather than the norm, and really limits the connectivity more than having DVI-D cables with DVI-I ports.

I know I listed separate cables as both a Pro and a Con - but that is the way I see it, it has its good sides and bad sides... I have taken to using some DVI/USB/Audio joint cables from a different KVM as one of the monitor cables to help cut down on the clutter.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Considering it broke within 5 weeks, any pros that may have been listed have become moot - It was nice to have dual DVI monitors on a KVM for this many machines, however in just about five weeks I have lost output to one of the monitors... not much i can do with it now but keep paper from moving around - Great, just what I wanted to spend my hard earned $$ on.

Cons: Going out on a limb here, but poorly build...

Other Thoughts: The highest priced junk i have had the misfortune to need. Do yourself a favor and keep looking.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Dual DVI with individual switches (as opposed to an earlier Linkskey dual DVI with one progressive switch) and USB.

Cons: Slow switching speed between computers. Cannot keep up with 1920x1080 graphics resolution - a secondary window with a different resolution appears. First power outage and the thing died. Power supply still put out 9V. Junk!

Other Thoughts: Too much money for vastly too little product. Learn from my experience and buy another vendor's KVM switch.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works very well while it lasts

Cons: Keyboard and mouse USB ports died after 1 year. KVM began making very loud high pitch noise while the power cable was plugged into it so I disconnected the power and it worked on USB power for about 1 month and then completely died. Unfortunately the warranty is only one year.

Other Thoughts: I would have gone with two cheap KVMs if I knew it $600 would only get me 2 years of operation. I would buy this again if it had 3 year warranty, it is probably still the best option for 1 KVM with dual DVI monitors.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: After struggling with fullscreen issues with dual monitors, synergy/multiplicity, I decided to get a real dual-monitor KVM.

Switching is fairly fast for a USB hub.

Cons: "Console" usb port for keyboard/mouse does NOT work. I had chain plug the keyboard/mouse over the "device" USB connection because it only has that one extra USB connection.

None of the following device worked: Logitech G15 keyboard (USB), Logitech UltraX KB (USB), Razer Diamondback, Logitech MX700.

Other Thoughts: This is my fifth KVM or so, but my first dual-monitor.

PS3 did not like being chained to the KVM, so I had to plug it directly into monitor.

Have other issues such as primary monitor disappearing seemingly at random, and all output shunting to secondary monitor. Need to investigate further.

5 out of 5 eggsFOUR PORT DUAL DVI KVM SWITCH

Pros: Does what it says. Did not need to load software. Worked anyway.The software is for controlling individual items and keyboard switching which I don't use. Provides all the cables except could use more for the 7.1 stuff.One computer has DVI/Analog conversions and works just fine. The other is DVI/DVI and it works fine. The unit will only pass resolutions that your monitor can handle. The factory said that this unit will pass 1920 x 1080P. Strong metal case.I used it to pass 1360 x 768 to two Sharp 32GP1U HDTV's PC inputs.

Cons: Instructions say to hook up DVI connectors while the unit is "hot". I did not do this. (scared)

Other Thoughts: If the 7.1 connections on your system are not fully occupied (2.1, 4.1, etc.) you will pick up hum as the connections on the KVM are not terminated. Be nice if they supplied termination plugs for the unused jacks.
