Can use regular desktop CPUs.
Seems pretty fast and stable.
Minimal driver requirements.
Cons: Has SERIOUS issues with add-on RAID controllers. Reading online this is an ongoing problem. However, my HP P400 controllers aren't the most compatible cards by any means, but we shall see how my new Areca card goes once it comes in.
Other Thoughts: If you install the Intel NIC drivers you can team the two onboard NICs and run a single 2Gb connection if your switch supports it.
There are known compatibility issues with the second NIC model and VMWare ESX installs. Community drivers are available to make it work, but it is a bit of a hack. I am using mine with Windows 2008 R2 though and have no issues with NICs.
This review is from: IOGEAR GCS24U 4-Port USB Cable KVM Switch
Pros: Allows me to switch between 4 computers.
Can toss behind table after connected and use remote button for switching.
Cons: Lots of wires to get tangled (to be expected though)
The strange little switch button has no lights to show what PC you are on, lights are on top of the box. This kind of defeats the point of the remote switch, but I have 4 different types of things connected so I can just guess based on what is displayed.
Other Thoughts: They should put some micro LEDs in the switch to show what PC you are on. Also, might make the switch cable a little thicker, as it seems like it would be easy to damage.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Allows me to mount an internal drive in my server case (Norco RPC-4224) for a boot drive, without taking one of the RAID bays.
Cons: None really.READ FULL REVIEW
