5 out of 5 eggsdoes the job

Pros: - Works as advertised.
- Does NOT degrade the video even at high resolutions (1920 x 1080)
- Does NOT require power after it is programmed. Very green!
- Comes with a short cable
- No heat or noise.

Cons: Wish it was smaller (not that it is big).
Wish it was cheaper.

Other Thoughts: If you use Win 7 with a KVM, there's a good chance you need this product. It will keep a video card from changing resolutions when you switch to another PC on the KVM - a problem with Win 7, but not Vista or XP.

The unit "remembers" the screen resolution and presents itself as "monitor" to the video card so that card doesn't revert to a lower resolution when you switch to a different PC a KVM.

This a review of my second unit. I've been using the first one for 2+ years without a single problem - still going strong. But now that I re-built the second PC's Win 7 from scratch, rather than upgrade Vista, it no longer remembers it's screen resolution when switching - hence the need for a second unit.

Both are connected to a Geffen 2x1 DVI USB KVM. 6+ years old. Still works perfectly. Geffen makes good gear.
