This review is from: IOGEAR GCS1644 4-Port Dual View Dual-Link DVI KVMP Switch with Audio
Pros: I bought two of these. it works just OK, it is nice to not having to boot each computer individually now.
Cons: only works with the basic keyboard and mouse devices, huge con. will not work with a Logitech mini unified receiver plugged into the mouse port on the back, my older gcs1764 did work with this mouse. I get 'device driver software was not successfully installed" with this KVM. I don't understand why it would be particular with mice as there is no mouse functionality to the switch, but the mouse works in the front port.
Sometimes only one monitor will display video forcing me to cycle away from the effected computer and back again to get video on both monitors.
My secondary monitor has to time out before powering down to standby, this is with a pair of dell U2713H monitors.
Other Thoughts: i would rather see iogear make a wireless remote for switch computers and get full keyboard and mouse support.
for the life of me i don't know why 7.1 sound was not included with a dual link dual view switch, don't tell me enterprise customers don't want or need it, if they don't they don't have to use it. i'm a consumer and i own two of these.
Pros: Small foot print, real fast with Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series SSD (MKNSSDAT120GB-DX), 16GB Patriot Memory for Ultrabooks 1.35V (PS001037-PSD38G1600L2S), Intel Centrino Advanced N-6235 Wireless Adapter with Bluetooth, Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter.
*** INTEL fixed the audio drivers and the now work perfect. I found the new video/audio drivers with intel auto update, as they aren't on the NUC website yet. http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect
Other Thoughts: No crashes, stable as a rock. I stream HDTV from a SiliconDust HDHomeRun PRIME network tuner to it and use it as a DVR as well, record to an external USB hard drive; and use it to play blurays.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small foot print, real fast with Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series SSD (MKNSSDAT120GB-DX), 16GB Patriot Memory for Ultrabooks 1.35V (PS001037-PSD38G1600L2S), Intel Centrino Advanced N-6235 Wireless Adapter with Bluetooth, Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter. Drivers for the Gb Ethernet Adapter can be found on Broadcom's site, look for the NetXtreme I Desktop/Mobile download.
Cons: Windows Media Center crashes when "Exclusive Mode" is enabled in the Intel Display Audio Driver, which needs to be enabled to get DTS-HD & Dolby TrueHD thru the HDMI port. I enable Exclusive Mode to get HD sound in PowerDVD and disable it in WMC. I wish
Other Thoughts: The WMC crashing manifest itself in one of two ways. First, when you try to play back recorded TV, you can get an error message that says you don't have correct files necessary to play the file. Second, you can get audio problems when resuming normal playback after fast forwarding. Both problems are caused by the same issue. Error which usually is displayed “Video Error Files needed to display video are not installed or are not working correctly. Restart Windows Media Center or restart the computer”READ FULL REVIEW
