This switch on the other hand, works PERFECTLY with my new keyboard and mouse. It really saved the day (I was ALMOST about to go back to wired, YUK).
I have the 2.4GHZ usb adapter that came with the wireless keyboard and mouse plugged into the keyboard port of the switch. My Windows XP laptop (that is in a docking station) and my Windows 7 Tower are now switching back and forth (using the scroll lock key) perfectly, it never misses.
I hope this hels someone, because I spent quite a bit of time researching this before I found a combo that would work!
Here is the keyboard and mouse I am using: Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 Keyboard and Mouse Set - Black
The KVM operates only by hotkey switching; you press a certain combination of keys to switch between systems. Unfortunately, the hotkey system is flakey at best; the port-ID command has never worked for me, and the other commands work about twenty percent of the time - the rest of the time just results in you turning numlock on and off a whole lot, and filling your screen with '-', 't' and 'a'.
As my keyboard doesn't have a scroll-lock key (the default switch - you have a choice between that, or your control key - no custom keys.) I have to set the KVM to use the alternate toggle - but it "forgets" this setting once every week or so, forcing me to set it again (and see above re: it ignores most commands I send it.) There doesn't seem to be any reason for this (no power failures or system reboots - the systems stay up 24/7) - it just appears to get bored doing it my way, and wants to go back to the way it likes to do things. I don't like personality quirks in my hardware.
I've also had it freeze out on me - it spontaneously refuses to acknowledge commands or pass keyboard or mouse input through to the system unless I unplug the device, restart the systems (one of them is a file server; you can imagine how pleased I am about doing that) and plug it all back in again. Most recently, the sound has now completely disappeared; the speakers work fine, but the KVM won't pass the sound through, for no apparent reason.
I sent Aten a support request via email two weeks ago about these problems. I've not had a reply at all - not even a form-answer. Nothing.Read more ›
By the way, I bought and returned an IOGEAR USB 2 port KVM switch because it does not have the ability to share a usb peripheral like the ATEN.
In short, introducing the KVM did not in any way degrade functionality of my systems.
I have used iTunes to play music through my Macbook and in a VM on my Linux workstation, with sound routed through the KVM. The sound is just fine. It's as if the KVM is not even there. It's possible that users reporting audio problems have a cabling issue.
The generous cables (1.8M) are great for routing monitor/keyboard cables behind a large mahogany desk.
I am an engineer. I love a product that just works at a reasonable price. Thank you, ATEN. I will be a repeat customer.
