This review is from: IOGEAR GCS634U MiniView USB KVM Switch with audio and cables
Pros: Works perfectly. Switching between computers is fast, about half a second.
Cons: Not DVI, but that's my choice since I pruchased the lower priced version. Need to make sure you plug the keyboard into the correct usb port on the kvm switch. You will still be able to type if you plug into the mouse usb port, but the hot key to switch consoles won't work. Took me about 15 minutes to figure that out.
Other Thoughts: Have a linux atom box, a quad core win xp box and 2.4 northwood xp box connected to it. And my corporate labtop when I work from home. Haven't attached the quad core or labtop to it yet (mainly cause i haven't built it or had to work from home)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SIIG CE-000042-S1 ExpressCard/54 CF R/W
Pros: Much faster than PCMCIA card
Cons: Compactflash cards stick out a bit from the express card slot
Other Thoughts: Great purchase, used with my companies proprietary software which basically reformats the compactflash everytime. Went from 8min 30secs and computer dragging to a halt on my PCMCIA burner to 1min 30secs and a completely useable computer. Recommend it as an upgrade over any PCMCIA card.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LINKSYS PLE200 PowerLine AV Ethernet Adapter Up to 200Mbps
Pros: Easy to setup: just plug into the wall and they connect to each other. If you want to encrypt it, a little extra setup is required (i haven't done it though).
Only takes up one outlet: From the picture it's hard to tell how it plugs in, but it plugs into on outlet and leaves enough room to plug a standard size plug into.
Speed: The applet that comes with them has reported speeds between 77 Mbps and 111Mbps. Haven't done any real world speed tests, but am easily able to stream video from desktop to Xbox while also downloading more videos
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: A little pricey, but worth it.READ FULL REVIEW
