1 out of 5 eggsAweful

Pros: hotkey control

Cons: This is the worst KVM i've ever used (and I've used quite a few). My biggest gripe is that if there is a resolution or more change on a computer, the KVM shuts off that input and WILL NOT recover. You have to reboot it by unplugging the power. If you reboot a computer, chances are, it will shut off and must be rebooted. If you change to a resolution or refresh that it doesn't like, it locks up and you must reboot. Horrible

Other Thoughts: Not worth the time it took me to install it. Wish I had never bought this thing.
