1 out of 5 eggsNot stable

Pros: 4 inputs

Cons: Very unstable. It hangs at least once a day and non of the keys work. Unfortunately you cannot just unplug the power adapter to reset it. It also gets power from all the input lines!!! What that means is that you have to unplug all the 16 input cables to reset it!!! Try doing that once or twice a day and you'll be running back to NewEgg to order a different brnad.

5 out of 5 eggsReally surprised

Pros: An excellent piece of hardware, very fast and no need to "scroll" through all connected to get to the machine you need. A very nice price for such a high quality switch

Cons: No audio throughput, that's a drag for testing production audio. But still a good switch.

Other Thoughts: Really surprised so many reviewers did not realize you had to buy cable sets as well. I have never seen a good KVM come with cables, ever. And no, KVMs don't transmit special mouse commands for the most part, unless the mouse software is INSTALLED on all the PCs connected. That's very common. Quit complaining and do your homework.

2 out of 5 eggsDosen't play nice with SGI's, POOR video quality

Pros: Solid construction, includes power supply, much quieter beep when switching computers then the loud annoying beep Belkin KVMs make.

Cons: Poor video quality, does not work properly with SiliconGraphics systems which use PS2 compatible keyboards and mice.

I bought this KVM to use on my SGI gear. I have tested it on an Origin 2100/MXE, Octane2 Odyssey, Indigo2 R10K HI/TRAM, and Indigo2 R4400 Extreme with very poor results.

I run 1600x1200@76Hz on the Octane2, and 1600x1200@60Hz on the Origin 2100 and in both cases there is ghosting and a washed out picture. The Indigo2s both run at 1280x1024@76Hz and while the quality isn't as bad, there is still noticeable distortion.

I am using top quality 10-ft tri-coax video cables.

For the keyboard problem, when I connect though the KVM my keyboard will act as if a key is stuck down if I hold down any key longer then a fraction of a second. Most native Unix machines including SGI use PS2 Scan Mode 3 where PCs use Mode 2. Apparently this KVM does not like mode 3.

Other Thoughts: The image quality problem is inexcusable. SGI's video boards are probably the best quality in existence and produce a _VERY_ high quality video signal. Using 50' coax cable on SGI's without a noticeable drop in quality is common.

My monitor is an SGI Branded Sony GDM-5411 21" Trinitron. When connected directly to any of my SGI's the video quality is as sharp as any LCD with beautiful color and contrast. Adding the KVM simply kills this quality.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Great product.
When I first got it the screen flickered for the first day or two. I guess it required some time to burn in. After that it worked and is working perfectly. It makes a beep every time you switch from computer to computer but it's not annoying at all. I have 4 computers that I connect to it, the time it takes for the image to be acquired by computer is in the milliseconds. It has manual buttons in case you don't want to use the keyboard shortcuts (CTRL x 2) to switch from station to station.

Cons: Does not bring any KVM Cables.

Other Thoughts: I have bought over $80,000 worth of computer equipment and only bothered to write reviews for 1-5 products, this is one of them. I would definitely purchase this product again if I had to do it again.

5 out of 5 eggsNice KVM..

Pros: Works great. Push buttons are nice if you don't remember the key sequence which is Ctrl, Ctrl. Comes with a power supply, but it is not needed. Also works with a ps2 to USB adapter

Cons: I wish there was a mounting bracket.

Other Thoughts: A little pricey, but worth it for a production environment like an IT lab.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: It works ok, I connected this to a Native Res 17" LCD by LG and when you first turn on the monitor you notice small black screens run up your display for about a minute. After it's on for a bit, it goes away.

Cons: Does not bring KVM Cables.
After paying this much money for it you'd think it'll include everything you need.

3 out of 5 eggsDoes NOT work with Thinkpads; flawed design

Pros: Solid construction with easy to use selector for each channel. Works with XP and Linux.

Cons: Not compatible with Thinkpads. Disclaimer – Thinkpad PS/2 keyboard and mouse are known to be difficulty with many KVMs. However, this is not my gripe. My gripe is that this KVM locks up frequently when a Thinkpad is connected to it, and the only way to reset it is to unplug the power supply AND remove all the keyboard connectors. The built-in reset is completely ineffective. This is a real hassle, and IMO, something that wasn’t validated by Linksys.

Other Thoughts: Although Thinkpads are difficult to work with, they are not impossible. There are plenty of KVMs that work perfectly with Thinkpads. I would've rated this KVM 2-Poor, but if you're not going to use it with a Thinkpad, then it works perfectly.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked "okay" but not "well"

Pros: Worked okay when it did work. Nice solid box (some are far too light to sit on my desk since the cables pull the back down and they want to "look" at the ceiling).

Cons: Doesn't pass through all the extra mouse buttons or enhanced keyboard functions. Locked up about once per day requiring me to disconnect all mouse/keyboard connections and AC adapter and then plug them all back in to get it to work again. Cables are unusual (male-female not female-female) and expensive.

Other Thoughts: While it isn't really a "pro" or "con" this switch requires more key-strokes to change between systems unless you enable fast-switch, in which case you flip between systems using a double-stroke of the control keys (left contrrol to go to the next lower port number, righth control to go to the next higher). If quick-switch is disabled, you use CTRL-CTRL-#-Enter (where # is the port).

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Reliable, don't have to worry about rebooting it like the el cheapo. Can be chained together like higher priced ones.

Cons: more expensive than the cheap ones

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME!!

Pros: We held our collective breaths when we purchased this. Didn't want to go to each system and have to upgrade drivers etc. Had an older Belkin OmniView for years and actually had a senior Belkin Tech inform us that the newer KVMs were having problems with scrolling etc. and that we should actually stick with what we had if it worked!!

However, we will be moving to LCD and needed the higher resolution so we got this. Also the old Belkin started to fail to emulate unless the port was already set, something this Linksys does so well. So far, it is way better than what we had. Switch seems very solid and works well except we were unable to get the second hotkey option to work (minor problem). We would recommend this switch to anyone and with the rebate, doubt it could be beat.

Cons: Unable to get the hotkey option (hitting both ctrl keys simultaneously) to work. This is minor and the regular hotkey (ctrl, alt, shift) works great.

Other Thoughts: If you need a solid KVM for small business/home use, this is it!! Jump on this rebate offer!!
