5 out of 5 eggsIndustrial Strength KVMAU

Pros: Takes USB or PS/2 mouse and keyboard
Provides USB 2.0 switched between computers
Multiple computer-switch options

Cons: Not recognized by BIOS
Requires power
Included cables are USB only; PS/2 cables sold separately

Other Thoughts: This USB switch with audio and USB 2.0 actually boots a resident with a color EGA screen. You see it by pressing Scroll Lock twice. From there, you can use the keyboard and mouse to switch the KVM, audio, or USB, or all of them together, then return to the computers.

If you watch a computer boot, the BIOS won't see the KVM keyboard and mouse unless it is sophisticated enough to load USB drivers. I have one that has a UEFI BIOS and it sees the keyboard but not the mouse. But I need another PS/2 keyboard to press F2 to get into the BIOS for any of my computers. If you get the PS/2 cables, you might be able to talk to the computers earlier in the boot.

Switched USB is one powered port that I find useful in moving files between computers with a flash drive. Remember to "eject" the flash drive before switching computers.

The case is built like a brick and comes with brackets for rack or wall mount. I just set mine down on one of my computers in front of a network switch. LED indicators clearly show connections, and audio and one powered switched USB port are on the front panel.

This ATEN replaced a nice KVM switch that fritzed out after less than a month (its internal USB died, making it useless). I see that people at work us ATEN equipment so I thought that I would pay a little more to get it, and I'm glad I did.

2 out of 5 eggsDidn't work for me

Pros: Well built unit, comes with cables.

Logitech G15 functioned as expected - full functionality only when plugged into a generic USB hub port. On generic port, G-keys and LCD worked, hotkey switching did not. On keyboard port, hotkey switching/OSD worked, but G-keys and LCD did not. This was as expected.

Mouse emulation disable feature worked and allowed Logitech MX Revolution to operate fine on mouse port. MX Rev also worked on generic USB ports.

Cons: Didn't pass EDID information through to PC correctly, so graphics chipset couldn't identify correct monitor resolution.

The special "DynaSync" feature, where the KVM is supposed to clone the monitor EDID, didn't work for me.

After hacking the driver to allow the correct native res, the video quality was poor. It looked like the graphics card was not actually setting the correct resolution, although it said it was.

After ages of messing around, I found that for whatever reason, if the keyboard was plugged into the front USB port, the video worked fine. If the keyboard was plugged into the back, it didn't set right and worked poorly.

Provided cables are too short for anything but side-by-side PCs immediately underneath your monitor. Additional cables are expensive.

Other Thoughts: Basically I found this to be an expensive waste of time, especially since all I wanted was the G-key functionality of the Logitech G15 keyboard to work on one machine.

2 days later I had that, but at the expense of an unreliable video setup. The fact that the USB keyboard failed to work under BartPE was the final nail.

I ended up returning the KVM and bought a Logitech G13 gameboard, which gives me the G-keys on one machine without all the hassles of this KVM. And it was cheaper too.

If you invest in it, be aware that it may not be a plug and play affair. DTDCalculator can help you fix your registry to get the right resolutions working for your monitor.
