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 TRENDNET TK-407K is a 4-port USB KVM switch that lets you manage four PCs with just one set of keyboard, monitor and mouse. Separate sets of KVM cables are included for easy installation and providing power to the KVM switch, eliminating the need for a power adapter. Is this the switch for you? Check it out and see!

5 out of 5 eggsTRENDnet TK-407K 4-Port KVM Switch Kit

Pros: Good Price - Good purchase

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have owned this KVM switch for over a year now.

I used some wide (industrial) Velcro strips
To adhere the switch, to the inside -
under side of my computer desk.

I used some white medical tape on the KVM switch.
To distinguish - computer 1, 2, 3 and 4.

I wrapped, white medical tape on each of the cable ports
Then labeled them - 1, 2, 3, and 4

I installed the software that came with this KVM switch.
Which is nice, if you want to switch computers.
Without pressing the buttons.

Sometimes, it does freeze up.
Other times, I get the message
"USB device not recognized"

I just peel the KVM switch off
The under side of my computer desk

I unplug everything. Then I plug the cables back in.
In the correct order of sequence - 1, 2, 3, and 4

The KVM switch returns to work perfectly.
I go through this 4 to 6 times a year.

I have had other KVM switches throughout the years.
2 Port, ps2 KVM switches

They have all worked the same.
They all have the same problems.

There is nothing unusual, about this KVM switch.
That makes it different from the problems
I have experienced, with other KVM switches

1 out of 5 eggsTRENDnet TK-407K 4-Port KVM Switch Review

Pros: Easy setup.

Cons: Device started failing within a few months of owning, just past there return policy period. Would not recommend this device.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi WillB,

Please accept our apologies for this product failure. When it starts failing within a few months of owning while being plugged in a same power outlet. I would suggest to unplug and re-plug in, or reset it via the reset button. If not on a same outlet, could you help verify on a different outlet? Please avoid to plug it into an outlet of GFCI, UPS, or power strip or close to appliance. If these don’t help, please email me directly at adrian@trendnet.com with "Newegg TK-407K Review" in the subject line and I will be able to assist you immediately. Thanks you for taking the time to review our product.

Warm Regards,

1 out of 5 eggs4 months in - not working

Pros: Easy setup, worked fine out of the box.

Cons: Had it four almost four months, the first three ports stopped working - only the fourth works now. tried multiple computers and re-config's, no good. And, it's been more that 30 days so no replace/return. Now I have a $50 piece of worthless plastic. DO NOT BUY!

5 out of 5 eggsGood First Experience With a KVM

Pros: easy setup, comes with everything you need, works as expected, can switch between computers at a good speed (there is a couple second delay since the usb devices have to be recognized by the new computer you're switching to), doesn't need a power sources (uses power from usb).

Cons: I don't like the layout of the connections on the unit. There are two connections on the back, one on each side, and then one on the front for your monitory/keyboard/mouse. I would like it much better if all of the connections for the computer were on the back so the footprint of the unit w/ cables conected would be smaller.

Other Thoughts: This is my first kvm switch, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I really don't have any functionality complaints so far. I wish I could of bought from newegg, I would of saved about $10, but I needed it the same day so I bought it from a local store. Same model number TK-407k but mine is white, not sure if the ones newegg is selling are white or as pictured.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Issues

Pros: Simple, no additional installations, all cables included. Worked right out of the box with all computers that were used.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if there were some screw holes on the bottom that would allow this product to be mounted somewhere out of the way, but that's more of an aesthetic thing.

1 out of 5 eggsNo Joy

Pros: It's blue.

Cons: Didn't work well at all. Huge delay in returning keyboard and mouse function to my Windows 7 machine. Keyboard and mouse froze up frequently. Finally disconnected it, boxed it back up and am sending it back.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked for a while...

Pros: Cheap price.

Cons: Cheap quality. Worked OK for a while, though never could get the hotkeys to ever function. Now I get mouse movement on each screen, but no mouse or keyboard inputs go through. If I unplug everything...which is a major hassle...I can get it to come back for a few minutes then it fails again.

Time to upgrade to a quality one.

4 out of 5 eggsGood KVM, works most of the time

Pros: 4 computers can connect to this, sharing a keyboard and a mice, instead of 4 of each. Works a great deal of the time (see cons). It has buttons to make it easy to switch, though the hot keys aren't too hard to remember either. Comes with useful cables.

Cons: It Works Most of the Time, though when it doesn't, it can be a pain. It typically doesn't work when you switch from a computer and back, it would take a few minutes for the other system to be up and about. USB 1.1 compliant, I honestly thought this was a USB 2.0 console, so only share keyboard and mice here, or get a cheap USB hub if you have a drawing tablet you use on all your systems.

Other Thoughts: I have had this KVM for almost a year, and even though I posted more cons then pros, don't let that discourage you, this is a good KVM switch. I wouldn't recommend connecting a gaming mouse to this however, you will have sensitivity issues. Other then that this is a good KVM, Recommended.
