Style Name: DVI + VGA - Dual MonitorSize: 2 Port
I purchased this unit to allow me to switch between a desktop computer and a laptop in its docking station. I run dual monitors for both, and my desktop and laptop both have one VGA and one DVI connector each. So this product seemed like the perfect fit.

In the end the device is now working well... but be prepared to spend time dealing with the unexpected. My advice is that you be very careful about the DVI cables you select (DVI-D Dual Link cables are required for the digital connections... "end of cable" adapters spelled trouble for me). In addition, like other reviews mentioned the USB port that is intended for the keyboard will work, but if your keyboard has "special functionality" don't expect those functions to work. I found that moving the keyboard to one of the other console USB ports will allow special keyboard functions to work, but then you lose the ability to use "hot-key strokes" to switch between systems. The work around is that you can still use the "Select" button on the front of the KVM to switch between systems - a unfortunate compromise.

Other than that, the unit works as advertized. Clean switching. I use a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse with the tiny little "Unifying" reciever plugged right into the back of the KVM switch. I was surprised by how well that worked.

Style Name: DVI - Dual MonitorSize: 2 Port Verified Purchase
I've owned this switch for about a year now and unfortunately I've finally given up and I'm disconnecting it. Many of my issues have already been commented on by previous reviewers, however here are the main issues I'm frustrated with:

1) When switching between PCs there's about a 50% chance that one of the monitors will not switch over properly. So I have to switch BACK to the other PC and try it again and hope that both monitors switch over properly the next go around.

2) A certain keystroke command can get stuck sometimes so it types out that same key over and over. Usually I can fix it by hitting backspace a few times but other times I can only fix it by switching over and then back.

3) Sometimes my PC will completely forget that the second monitor was ever connected. The only way to fix this is to either reboot the PC or go into the screen settings, stop extending the desktop to that monitor, apply, then reset it to extend to the second desktop and apply.

So overall I'm not pleased with my purchase. Not worth the hefty price tag at all in my opinion. I'm going back to RDP sessions to manage my multiple PCs.

Style Name: DVI + VGA - Dual MonitorSize: 2 Port Verified Purchase
I purchased this primarily so I could switch a monitor between two computers (a Mac and a Dell running Windows 7) both of which supported DVI-D output. Unfortunately, the DVI-D ports on the back of the unit are spaced so closely together so that even a DVI-D plug with the narrowest of clearance beyond the screws will rub up against each other. I found it impossible to find 3 cables that would work with the unit.

There tech support was responsive when working on some driver issues. I would consider buying another product from this manufacturer, but not this one. Its serious design flaw rendered it unusable for my primary purpose, switching monitors for two computers with digital out.

Style Name: DVI - Dual MonitorSize: 2 Port
I purchased one of these a little less than a year ago and have had nothing but problems with it.

I have 2 1920x100 24" monitors connected to a desktop PC and a laptop docking station through this unit. The PC goes through a Matrox DualHead2Go DP edition display device that outputs to DP ports which go through DP to DVI cables into the KVM. The laptop just has 2 DVI cables connected.

The video randomly drops out and sometimes recovers on its own, sometimes I have to remove the DP cable from the PC or DVI cables from the laptop to recover, causing them to resize all of my windows. This does not occur when plugged directly into either computer.

Another issue is that ranom keyboard keys get "stuck" every now and then (including shift, ctrl, or alt). Pressing any other key "fixes" the issue until it happens again. This does not happen when the keyboard is plugged direcly into either computer.

I don't like to write bad reviews, and this is the first time I've ever had something from StarTech that didn't work, but it doesn't work in a big way. They even sent a replacement unit (I had to send my unit in and wait for the replacement) and the replacemnt unit had the same behavior. I can't recommend buying this for any reason.

Style Name: DVI + VGA - Dual MonitorSize: 2 Port Verified Purchase
I called StarTech support (after reading the online manual on their website) before ordering this so I could be 100% sure it would work. They told me exactly which cords I would need. I was able to order everything online except I did need to purchase two VGA cords. Not a big deal because this switch does exactly what I need it to do.

Here is my set up:
2 CPU's, 2 monitors (one VGA, one DVI) - all hooked into the switch.
Keyboard, mouse, speakers, printer go into the switch.

I can toggle between both CPU's and use the same keyboard/mouse/etc.

This thing is so awesome!

If you have any doubts, just call StarTech support after reading the manual. The manual has a graphic that shows you exactly how to configure your components. I will order StarTech stuff again.
