Configures great with Linux7/17/2009 7:48:47 AM

Pros: Plug and play under Ubuntu Linux Uses PCI

Cons: Unknown

Overall Review: A new install of Ubuntu found all of the drives hooked up to this controller right away at boot time. You can't ask for better than that. Giving a 4 since I don't know anything else about it yet, but that was the most important factor for me.

Does work, but needs more power10/23/2008 5:30:37 PM

Pros: Works with my 1680x1050 DVI monitor flawlessly. Switches between two powered up PCs flawlessly. Solid heavy construction. Switches USB. Has both VGA and DVI.

Cons: Mine needed external power, and a power supply is not included nor available. Only accepts USB for keyboard and mouse.

Overall Review: I had earlier written the review that said the unit didn't work with 2 DVI cables plugged in. It turns out the unit needed more power and wasn't sufficient from 2 PC's power over USB. It doesn't come with an external adapter unfortunatly, but has a port for one. After plugging in a similar power cord from a USB hub, the KVM worked great. I then found that if I plugged the same powered USB hub into USB port on the KVM, it would also work fine with the extra juice the hub was providing. I feel I was lucky to stumble across this solution.

Didn't work10/22/2008 7:43:07 PM

Pros: Heavy, good construction. Supports both VGA and DVI monitors. The price.

Cons: Video switching over DVI didn't work. The video would only show if the DVI cable from the other PC's connection was physically unplugged. Otherwise I would get a flashing screen or no screen at all. The two inputs definitely interfere with each other.

Overall Review: I will RA this, though I suspect it wont work either and this is too good to be true for the money.
