A KVM switch (Keyboard-Video-Mouse) is a major boon to anyone who has to work with more than one computer. You can change computers without having to give up the keyboard and monitor you're already using, sometimes via the keyboard itself. Imagine the space and money you'll save, only having to buy one monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

The IOGEAR GCS614A is a 4-port PS/2 KVM switch that lets you manage four PCs with just one keyboard, monitor and mouse. With the built-in audio support you can share a set of speakers between four computers. With the plug-and-play feature, connect or remove PCs without powering down the KVM switch or PCs.

  • newegg Multi-platform Support The IOGEAR GCS614A KVM switch supports multiple formats including Windows and Mac computers as well as Sun Solaris workstations.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: All Cables included.
Nothing to install
Easy to use once you figure out the key press

Cons: Takes a little bit of time to figure out the key press to switch between computers. Once you've got it no problems.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: It works very well once you get the hang of how to press the hot keys, swift but not too fast. I have been using this kvm for about 5 years and it works flawlessly. Pix is perfect, no ghosting. Audio sounds great. If you have to use a ps/2 converter, the usb mouse will work but any special buttons (like page forward or back) may not work. This may occur because the device isn't detected so only Windows drivers are loaded and not the Logitech or other manuf. drivers. Some other converters may work better. One of those purple or pink plug converters may work even better.

Cons: None to mention. This is an excellent quality kvm.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA - Took too much time to install...

Pros: Well Built, 4 computer capability, PS2 architecture, Green & Grey, Sound Leads. Waited 45 days to install and missed the rma window.

Cons: Never worked from day installed. Display present but not mouse or keyboard.....

Other Thoughts: It is a nice paperweight. when bundled and zip tied together.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggs24/7/265 for eight years

Pros: Works 24/7, non stop.
Always switches, every time.
I've had mine for over 8 years, and no trouble except the one glitch mentioned in my Cons section.

Cons: Every 20 or 30 switches, the number of the unit will get "stuck" electronically. By that, I mean that the '2' key used to switch to unit 2 (the last key in the sequence) will be pressed and held down electronically and sending out repeating '2' keystrokes until I physically tap the 2 key to reset it. A small niggle that I've learned to spot quickly and don't mind much.

Only IOGear Ps/2 to USB adapters work with this KVM. Make sure to get a couple in case you are forced to adapt one of the Ps/2 plugs to a USB.

Other Thoughts: PS/2 switchers have an easier time emulating the device to the ports that aren't active. It's seamless to jump between computers with PS/2 KVMs -- much more so than USB which essentially unplug the devices and replug them to the new computers. That just seems hokey to me, and begging for freezes and blue screens. I will always use PS/2 keyboards and mice as long as possible, just because these switchers are available.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy this Product

Pros: When it works its great.

Cons: It uses a PS2 connection which is the downfall right there. I have owned this product for a while but just started to use it and it has given me nothing but trouble.

First of the switch recognizes the computer not but the video but the PS2 connections which is a terrible Idea. You can use adapters for a computer that doesn't have Ps2 connections but there is no guarantee that it will work.

Second The keyboard which is a direct PS2 connection is a tested functioning keyboard and the switch will not recognize it is connected so I can not switch to the different computers.

Overall it is just poor quality I have used other IOGear products and I have been happy with them but this one is just poor quality.

I recommend that you purchase a KVM Switch with physical switches. I have used both the IOGear Two port KVM with a clicker and a four port IOGear KVM with physical switches and they both worked great! They also used USB connections and they established a connection through the video Cable which also made it much better.

Manufacturer Response:

First, thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. The GCS614A is a PS2 KVM only so there is no guarantee it will work with any adapters. IOGEAR makes a wide variety of KVM’s to suite almost all needs. Again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: Partially works.

Cons: I bought this to replace my old BlackBox KVM which died. I have a mix of PS/2 and USB on my computers and I have a very old IBM PS/2 keyboard that I refuse to part with. The IOGEAR KVM won't work with a PS/2 to USB adapter but the BlackBox worked just fine with the same setup. The only thing that I'm using this KVM for is to switch the keyboard and I have to use 2 different mice which is a pain. Another pain is having to hit 3 keys in rapid succession before hitting the port number. The BlackBox only required 1 key.

Other Thoughts: I will never again buy anything made by IOGEAR. About all that I got from tech support was that I was totally out of luck.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. The gCS614A is PS2 only. IOGEAR makes a variety of KVM's to suite almost all needs. In order for hot key operation and instantaneous recognition of the keyboard and mouse when switching computers, our KVMs emulate a standard wired 102 key keyboard and wired generic 2-button scroll wheel mouse. We can not guarantee the use of wireless (including Bluetooth), multifunction, gaming, integrated card readers, or programmable keyboards and mice. This KVM also requires a mouse and keyboard be connected to their respective console ports, so we cannot guarantee the use of docking stations, port replicators or USB / PS2 adapters. . Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

1 out of 5 eggsShould have read the reviews better

Pros: Cables included

Cons: Does not work with USB keyboard or mouse using adapter. I haven't seen a keyboard or mouse in the last 5 years that is PS2. I thought that a simple adapter would fix the issue, but apparently not. So I wasted $50 on this garbage.

The mouse and keyboard inputs on the KVM are way to close to the VGA input. But it doesn't matter since I can't use it and it is not returnable to Newegg. Looks like it is going up on a certain product selling website.

4 out of 5 eggsworks well for several years

Pros: Chooses betwenn 4 computers easily, LED's to indicate connected computer, good video quality, good sound quality, does not require extra power adapter, reasonable cable length, small size

Cons: After several years of use, switching sometimes requires hitting hot key sequence more than once. This occurred after years of use and actually still works well.

Other Thoughts: I really like this KVM, and would buy it again if necessary. Mine is still working well after many years of constant daily use. It out lasted a DSL modem and two routers, and several computer upgrades. I have been pleased with all my Iogear products. I also have an Iogear GCS1758 KVM and a few blue tooth adapters, all of which work well and have lasted for years.

1 out of 5 eggsInferior Product

Pros: The colored plastic looks nice.

Cons: 1 port doesn't work. Others look fuzzy.

Other Thoughts: When I first received this unit in Sept of 2011, I had immediate trouble with it. I called support and all they could tell me was try another port. One port is totally defective. The other ports display a fuzzy picture. My advice is to steer clear of iogear products. Inferior products are usually accompanied by inferior support.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. Please email us with a phone number to contact you at support@iogear.com. We will be more than happy to contact you with quality service and process an RMA. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.
