- Comes with 2 USB type A male to type B male cables (59 in. long). - Comes with 2 HDMI cables (46.5 in. long).
Easy to set up, works great with my work laptop and gaming PC.
- Slim profile (7"-8" wide but slightly < 1" tall) and made of sturdy aluminum, so I've placed most of my desk trinket on top of it and they're still well below my view of the monitor screen. - Only uses USB (& HDMI) cables, unlike some KVMs I've used that have the extra green & blue 3.5mm audio & mic cables attached that flop around, take up space, looks kinda dumb, etc. Also, the cables included were plenty long enough for my setup (all components involved are within 5' of each other). - Has extra USB ports on its front (in addition to the labeled "mouse" & "keyboard" ports); one of which I use for my wireless headset dongle. - No loss of video quality! (Pretty sure there's no loss of audio quality either.) - Has an IR remote (which is neato, but I won't use it with my current setup because I placed the KVM unit easily within reach to press the button on its frame).
This HDMI switch is the best of the three I have used and it was the least expensive.
Using it for a week already and had no problems yet, so that's better than the last one I had (not this model) which was flipping out from the start. This one seems to have some EDID support as the display info is passed properly, but only the active connection is actually powered (so when you switch multi-display PCs the display disconnects and reconnects depending on the active PC). For my use case I had no issue with Windows 10 and Fedora 35 who both seem to restore window to their previous place correctly.
This hub allows you to share 4 usb3 devices across two computers, it virtually adds 3 extra usb ports to both computers. The switch which toggles back and forth works seamlessly. You could even run this as a hub for one computer and it would work great for that setup. The double computer hookup is just an added bonus.
Great price for a high quality switch, kick myself for buying a cheap one from a vendor named after a river in S America. It lasted about one year, it was junk. Got to stick with newegg, just as good a price and I got it 3 days after I placed my order.

I use this to switch between a Linux (Ubuntu) desktop and a Windows 10 desktop, using 4K video, 60hz on both, a wireless mouse, and wireless keyboard and it works absolutely perfectly.
Great feel and functionality
There are two versions of this KVM. My review is on the Dual Monitor 4 Port HDMI version, not the Display Port version, which they also make. Im calling this a PRO, not a CON. In regards to the product description at the time of my purchase, it was indicated that this KVM only goes up to 60hz. LIES! (yes thats a PRO) I ended up at TESMARTs website for the specs on this dual monitor 4 port KVM when in dual screen mode, and found that whoever wrote the product description omitted that this KVM goes up to 144hz. This product actually goes up to a MUCH HIGHER REFRESH RATE than 60hz! I know this is what many gamers are looking for, and the only limit that I am aware of in regards to 60hz is if both monitors are at max resolution. Basically they UNDERSOLD this amazing KVM. It makes me wonder if TESMART would have any interest in making dedicated GAMING KVMs?
So far this switch has worked flawlessly for me. I have a desktop and a laptop that share a keyboard, mouse and 4K monitor via DisplayPort.
- Used DP to HDMI cable and it still worked - Comes with usb a to usb b and hdmi-hdmi cables (convenient) - Comes with remote control - Super inexpensive compared to other KVM options - 4k 60hz with 4 ports, super excited to add more computers (work, server, etc) to this kvm to complete the command center.
Worked right out of the box. Like the fact that you can switch sources via the keyboard (ScrLk+Enter).
- Comes with 4 USB type A male to type B male cables.
awesome small switch with extension cord so u can hide the box away from desk
