Centralized control of a server or a USB KVM switch with this 1U rack-mountable LCD console. The RACKCONV1701 1U 17-inch Rack Mount LCD Console – USB – Value Series provides a complete keyboard, video and mouse control point, integrated neatly into only 1U of rack/cabinet storage space - a simple and space-efficient solution that provides total KVM control right at the server rack. The KVM Rack Console integrates a 17-inch TFT-LCD monitor, full 105-key keyboard and touchpad together into a durable, compact 1U design. When the rack console is not in use, it's as simple as folding down the display (like a laptop computer), and sliding it back into the server rack on sturdy steel rails (included). For consolidated control from a convenient location, the KVM rack console can be connected to virtually any USB KVM switch for command of multiple servers/computers, providing a scalable KVM control solution that lets you determine the type of KVM switch to use based on function and budget. Backed by a StarTech.com two-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
Cheap for a reason
Pros: Low price, non-proprietary connections (USB/VGA)
Cons: Wobbly console when fully extended, slide rails are cheap, folding cable arm in back is limp, mouse trackpad is intermittently responsive
Other Thoughts: I chose these consoles because I don't like proprietary connectors, I need USB, I thought I'd save several hundred by avoiding KVMs, and the price was right.
