Great Product - KVM Switches

This DVI Video KVMP Switch works great for me. I have had two KVM devices before and this is the best I have seen. Others have had issues, but this baby has all the features you need without the downsides. In addition to supporting 1920 x 1200 video, my desktop icons don't move to the top left corner when switching between computers like my Kinan 2-Port DVI KVM Switch does no longer use. This device has enough controls on the front of the device, but it can also be controlled using keyboard…

I'm happy to report that my old KVM is working now.

I have owned this switch for over 8 years and use it at least 10 hours a day. I recently replaced my keyboard with a Logitech Wave wireless keyboard and mouse. At first I was frustrated that it wouldn't work with my KVM. I noticed that a firmware update is available with release notes calling for more compatibility, so I gave it a try. I'm happy to report that my old KVM now works with my new Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse via the KVM keyboard's USB port. It should be noted that not all…

  • Few competitors
  • Almost never

I really want to give this KVM five stars but there is a design issue that is driving me crazy. This KVM is more than a keyboard, video and mouse switcher. It also toggles the microphone and main speakers. Short press toggles keyboard, video, and mouse, while long press toggles microphone and audio. This is great if you work a lot and switch between devices while listening to music. Now for my complaint. When you turn off your device, KVM automatically switches to another device with an active…

Didn't work for computers and accessories

Bought a KVM switch, everything seems fine. I am using Windows 7 with a DVI expansion card. I connected the cables to the main ports of the KVM switch and tried using the first port to connect to the computer. I got no response, no video movement, no keyboard, no mouse. The light on the keyboard and mouse was on, meaning power was going to them. So I gave it about 10 minutes, maybe there was a hidden hard drive that needed to be installed. However, there is no response, so I select port 3 on…

that works great. I didn't know there was a separate switch.

This KVM has a lot more functionality than I expected. At first I thought it wouldn't work properly, but after reading the manual and setting everything up correctly, it works great. I wasn't aware that there were separate toggle commands for display, sound, and USB - I thought they would all toggle when the appropriate system key was pressed. By default, pressing the button only toggles the display; USB and audio remain on the channel they are set to. However, you can change this behavior. It…

Almost perfect for computers and accessories

Pros: Easy to set up 4-port single channel DVI keyboard / USB + mouse (like - see bathroom) / 3.5mm speakers (1/8") + Microphone switch box with two additional USB ports (one on the back and one on the front) and headphone and microphone ports on the front. No video quality issues even at 1920 x 1200 resolution or input lag. If the switch was out of sight you'd never know what it was there Good value given the cost of alternative hardware solutions Bad: As others have noted, USB mouse support…

Loved it, bought a second one!

I'm using my mining rig and wanted to see four motherboards on site quickly; People say they use linux, use remote desktop with google or teamviewer but it's not the same as direct input and windows 10 worked fine so my first four installs showed up with it until I started adding other settings. With a second monitor and a few more rigs I thought it was worth having a solid connection despite the slightly high price. I haven't had any problems with the device and it works well. The cables…

Great switch. Worked very well for me!

The IOGEAR KVMP switch has been a great switch for me. I used to buy a KVM switch for a few bucks more, it was smaller and not as feature rich. I couldn't get it to work properly so I returned it and then bought the Revain IOGEAR KVMP switch. When I first plugged it in, it didn't recognize my keyboard or mouse. I called tech support and was quickly put through to a man who was a bit blunt at first but became friendlier as the conversation progressed. Advice. Do not use a speakerphone when…

IOGEAR GCS1104 - Good for the most part

The unit I received appears to be brand new (unopened packaging and everything in the box) but looks very old and may have been in stock for a few years. The product feels very solid, metal or heavy plastic, the buttons look and feel very good, looks like you would find it in a data center rather than a home office. This is definitely a niche product, few people need it. KVM switch nowadays. I am one of them, and even among them I can be an extreme case. Here's what I have: General I/O devices:

  • Best in its niche
