Good Piece of Kit - recommended,
This review is from: IOGEAR 2Port USB KVM Switch+cable (Personal Computers)
Just received this today. Great piece of kit.
Mysetup; Desktop XP PC. DVI out split to a DVI monitor and a VGA Monitor.
I occasionally want to connect a laptop to the keyboard, monitor and mouse whilst still using the desktop, hence this purchase.
The pictures in the item description arent great and I wasnt sure what was on the other end of the leads. Fortunately it was exactly what I was hoping for. To confirm; there are two bunches of 3 cables coming from the switch (plus the wired control). At the end of each bunch are two USB connectors and the VGA Connector.
Setup is easy. Whilst my setup is not complicated its not easy to describe. From my desktop PC is DVI cable which splits into female DVI and VGA connections. The DVI goes straight into one Monitor and the VGA then connects to one of the bunches connected to the switch. The laptop then connects to to the other bunch from the switch. It all works very well.
The Control is good and the keyboard and mouse register on each PC much quicker than I expected. Have looked a a few different KVMs at different price ranges. Am now glad that I didnt go for a pricey option as this fits the bill perfectly.
