Cons: None really, could use some more weight to help keep stable when network cables are plugged in.
Overall Review: Works as advertised and easy to set up via the web interface.
Pros: Plug and play under Ubuntu Linux
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.
Pros: Works with my 1680x1050 DVI monitor flawlessly. Switches between two powered up PCs flawlessly.
Solid heavy construction.
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.
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.
Pros: The price is right
Cons: Hard to see if status light is 100 or 1000 unless you're looking directly at eye level with it.
Overall Review: I've had it for about a month now, and so far so good.
