But Finally IOGear listened to the market, which is probably considerable, and designed just the right product. It comes with its own integral cables; in fact, there's little more to it than cables; it sits behind the computers or on the floor, off the desk and out of the way; installation is as minimal as possible, just shut down the computers, unplug the existing devices and plug the switch's cables in in a totally obvious way; it works great with both systems; it has a (finally!) sensible control-key combination, namely two hits on scroll-lock, a key I haven't used in years, so it will never happen by accident; there's no physical switch, but with a good control-key combination, who needs one, and who wants another box on the desk when the whole idea is to save space.
Oh, did I mention that it just works. Well, it does -- mouse, keyboard, and monitor all work perfectly on both systems. And considering the cost of cables, the price is incredible.
This should sell tens, if not hundreds of thousands. It simply nails the market niche. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars.
Now, when is IOGear coming out with their 3- and 4-port models? ;-)
I purchased this item because the new KVM switch I got a week before did not provide the performance I expected or required.
The earlier KVM switch was manual and provided a terrible video signal -- full of shadows and ghosts. Granted, this was probably due to the cheap cables that came with the unit but the costs of 2 new sets of cable would have been more expensive than this new switch!
Thus the IOGEAR KVM Switch. For the cost of new cables I got a new automatic switch with integrated and upgraded cables. The video signal and picture quality is excellent, the compact design fits neatly on my desk, and the molded combo cables mean less clutter for my cat to get tied up in -- what more could anyone want?
If you're looking for a KVM Switch that'll help you lose those unwanted pounds, become more attractive, and make you the envy of all your friends and relatives -- this is it!
I will give one word of caution however: Treat the cables like GOLD! This particular KVM has the connecting keyboard/monitor/mouse cables permanently attached to the unit: If any of the pins on the connecting cables to the PCs for the keyboard, mouse or monitor are bent and you can't connect them, you're out of luck. You cannot detach and buy replacement cables like on some KVMs.
I highly recommend this switch as you can't beat the quality for the price.
However, when set to the Thinkpad, the mouse doesn't work.. The manual says ... " for certain laptops, you can connect either the mouse or the keyboard".. And this incompatibility makes it pretty yucky.. There was an older review that mentioned this fact. I wish I had read it, in which case, I would have not purchased this product.
Now, what I have is, 1 keyboard, 1 monitor and 2 mice (one connected to the KVM and one to my laptop). So when I switch machines, I have to start using the other mouse.
Overall, the setup is better than what I had before.
