Pros: Only inexpensive KVM from a reputable brand with the outputs I needed to Work from home.
Works as a USB hub
Cons: Sometimes the monitors are not detected (started about 1.5 weeks after I started using the device) and requires the whole setup to be rebooted.
After less than a month of use, this switch has required near constant reconfiguration, ultimately reducing productivity.
USB Passthrough doesn't seem to work for keyboard and mouse (must use peripheral USB ports for this task.
Overall Review: When the monitors are detected (about 40% of the time), this switch works great. Would be nice if it were significantly more reliable.
Pros: - Seems to be well built
- Instructions are easy to follow
Cons: - Only comes with one allen wrench when there two different sizes of allen bolts used in the product
- clamp does not get wide enough to fit my desk (old w/a center drawer making it about 6 inches tall at it's narrowest point)
- did not have measurements of maximum clamp width
Overall Review: - Would recommend to a friend if I knew it would fit their setup
- would buy again if I get a newer desk
- Returning and buying a freestanding mount for my dual monitors
Pros: -RAID 0 with 2 of these is insanely fast (1070 MB/s reads, and 1040 MB/s write)
Cons: When in RAID 0 (as Intel masks the drives in the array from the OS as most/all RAID controllers do/should) Samsung Magician cannot enable RAPID mode to boost these speeds even higher because it cannot see that I have two of these attached.
