5 out of 5 eggsExcellent KVM

Pros: This thing allows 2048x1152 resolution! I thought I would be limited to 1920x1080 as advertised. The switch feels like a solid unit and so far works excellent switching between my computers.

Cons: None so far.

4 out of 5 eggsBeen working great

Pros: Very reliable, no problems so far. The cable on the switch button is over 4 ft long, so is easy to place near your hands.

Cons: Video cables might be a tad short(34 inches) for some, but my computers are close to each other, so no problem for me.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works!

Pros: Perfect for two computers to one monitor, keyboard, mouse. My monitor is 1920x1080 and it's flawless on both computers.

Cons: Once in a while, usb gets confused and loses keyboard after switching -- I just redo the switch (2 sec) and it finds it the 2nd time.

Other Thoughts: This little puppy works exactly as I needed, and didn't require any special setup. In fact, I didn't do the setup the recommended way, and it worked anyway. Pretty much just hook it up and you're done.

1 out of 5 eggsComplete Garbage

Pros: Newegg promptly processed and delivered the product--with free shipping.

Cons: The cables to connect the computers are ridiculously short!
The switcher distorts the video
No video display with Dell Latitude E series port replicator.

4 out of 5 eggsWell worth it

Pros: DVI at a good price

Cons: Shorter cabling
Stiff Cabling
Short 1-3 sec lag in mouse action when switching computers
Not all mouse buttons function in old games

Other Thoughts: I needed DVI cause I have DVI. I quit using the older VGA PS/2 KVM years ago and waited and waited for the price on the DVI KVM to come down to where I would pay. It did so I did. The shorter cables don't matter to me cause the computers are side by side. I can SEE no difference on screen using this KVM. The sound works fine which is an added plus. Keyboard switching is all I need so I can't comment on the added software

3 out of 5 eggsVery basic DVI KVM

Pros: Supports DVI
Cheap
Has a physical toggle button (software-based hotkeys are optional)

Cons: Only supports standard keyboards - Doesn't support my Logitech G11 but I can still use it with just the basic keyboard functionality.
Instructions are not very detailed and the "troubleshooting" is nothing more than a FAQ that isn't even related to problems you may have
Doesn't support a DVI-to-VGA Adapter (don't know if any DVI KVMs really do though as I've never researched it)

Other Thoughts: Had several issues getting this thing to work. I originally had my keyboard in gaming mode which caused problems. I also had problems with flickering video and the inability to switch to the other computer. Took some tinkering but I finally got it to work as it should.
