SIIG CE-KV0411-S1 DisplayPort 2-Port KVM Switch
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Usable 02/11/2015

This review is from: SIIG CE-KV0411-S1 DisplayPort 2-Port KVM Switch

Pros: It does what the description says. I use it to switch between a Windows desktop and a Linux laptop (Lenovo x220) plugged into a docking station.

The unit is of solid construction. It's all metal, no plastic and has a nice quality feel to it.

People with docking stations sometimes complain about display port KVM switches. One important thing they (may be?) forgetting is that laptops have a BIOS setting for the default video output on boot. It needs to be set to "Dockign Station Video" in my case. Otherwise you get no output until the OS boots - and this depends on the OS/video card too.

Cons: What I hate about this KVM is that it tries to be too smart: when there's no video/USB on PC1, it automatically switches to PC2 and vice versa.

This is unbelivably stupid. If I need to reboot my Linux box, it jumps to Windows, so I need to switch back, and switching back is always clumsy because the boot process on Linux doesn't keep the constant DisplayPort output, so it actually may jump back to Windows 1-2 times before I get a stable output with Linux login. Ughhh... Drives me nuts.

Another annoying part about that is that with both computers asleep, it's impossible to tell which one will wake up if I hit the keyboard. They should have had a solid, persistent, simple hardware flip-switch: PC1 or PC2.

ASUS Z87-A LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

2 out of 5 eggs Great motherboard but has a defect 06/23/2014

This review is from: ASUS Z87-A LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Well, it does everything it's supposed to do. It was easy to install and has a fantastic looking BIOS with plenty of options. No driver issues with Windows 8.1

Cons: It has a frozen clock. This means that when I turn the computer on, it shows the exact time when I turned it off. This is quite annoying and Windows (unlike Linux) NTP client is not configured well by default.

Will be trying to return it.

  • Verified Owner

Pros: Quiet

Cons: Ordered two. One was dead on arrival, promptly got replaced by Newegg. Added them to my RAID array and another one failed after 11 months of light use. Avoid.
