Nice KVM

ATEN CS62DU 2 Port DVI USB KVM with Bonded Cables and Audio
ATEN CS62DU 2 Port DVI USB KVM with Bonded Cables and Audio

Pros: This thing works great out of the box. I am using it with a mac mini and a windows 7 64 system. AT first I bought the technet TK-204UK, which Windows 7 recognized neither USB device, and the mac only recognized one.

Cons: I too notice the resolution issue other people describe. It's an easy solution to just make sure I'm switched to that PC before booting/taking it out of sleep.

Cheap

Pros: It successfully switched monitors and sound between a Mac Mini and a Windows 7 64 system.

Cons: The hardware has a very cheap feel to it. Tried using this with a Windows 7 64 system and a Mac Mini. Couldn't get the windows 7 system to recognize any USB input, and the Mac only recognized 1 USB device at a time. Also, it annoyingly uses a DVI-I cable instead of DVI-D (which works with all other DVI formats), so I had to go hunt for a DVI converter for my Mac. RMAed and got the ATEN CS62DU which has worked almost flawlessly out of the box for almost the same price.

Pros: Board works great.

Cons: I've not been able to get my $20 rebate for this board. I've resubmitted my documents. I spoke to a support person who gave me a nonworking fax number to fax the documents to, so don't take their word that you'll actually get the rebate promised.
