AMC CSV-F10MM 10 ft. SVGA Male to Male Monitor Cable With dual ferrites
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great and has Ferrites! 09/21/2013

This review is from: AMC CSV-F10MM 10 ft. SVGA Male to Male Monitor Cable With dual ferrites

Pros: No ghost/phantom images (similar to double-vision or cross-eyed) because of the Cable Ferrites.
The Ferrites are there to choke out Radio Frequency Interference which causes image quality issues.
Good cable length.
Connectors were solid and feel well made.
Nice thick cable which implies higher gauge wire and/or more shielding than usual.

Cons: Cable is a bit stiff and thick. This could be a pro though.

Other Thoughts: The stiffness of the cable aside, I purchased this to replace a cable that did not have any RF Chokes (Cable Ferrites).
The old cable had ghost image issues (looked like double-vision/cross-eyed) and ANYTHING that gave off RF interference (cell phone, TV, wireless adapter) would cause a large amount of image degradation and distortion.
After installing this cable all of those issues completely disappeared.

I do not move the monitor this is attached to so I cannot speak for it's quality for the wires inside the cable. It does feel like it has very good quality wires (hence the stiffness).

4 out of 5 eggs Great HDMI KVM 06/27/2013

This review is from: IOGEAR GCS62HU 2-Port HD Cable KVM Switch with Audio

Pros: Plug and play
Works great
Passes EID of current display correctly
Can turn off Keyboard and/or mouse emulation which is great if you use a gaming mouse and/or keyboard.
Compact
Includes some mounting foam pads.
Remote switch
Lots of intuitive and unobtrusive key combinations for functions

Cons: I honestly think the switch should be something you can unplug.

The way the cables attach to it makes it difficult to mount it on your desk so you can see those lights. Although, on a wall it's fine.

Cables could be longer. Maybe just a foot or so.

The cables are pretty darn stiff. Probably a lot of shielding (HDMI + Microphone + Speaker + 2x USB). The cable takes about 4-6 inches to allow for a 90 degree bend. Even the HDMI cable output is stiff.

The speakers and microphone have a noticeable loss of volume. A slight hiss/buzz is added to the signal as well. See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: They should redesign the audio switch. I understand the design for it but the control circuit should have been designed in such a way that the audio stays directly connected.

Excluding that it is a great KVM switch for HDMI.

BYTECC HM-2M 6 ft. Black HDMI Male to Male HDMI High Speed Male to Male Cable M-M
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great price.
Perfect length for most computer setups.
Monitor is instantly detected and have had no trouble.

Cons: It's a bit stiff.

Other Thoughts: Stiffness of cable is actually not exactly a con. A stiff cable usually indicates thick wires and shielding or cheap coating. This appears to be a combination but I've not noticed any indication that it's of low quality for images.

I've not tested the sound through the cable.
