5 of 5 people found the following review helpful Great one monitor switch. Earns 5 star rating out of this seasoned KVM user.
By OIObserver on December 30, 2011
I personally use this change to handle a third monitor that runs along with a great IO Gear Switch. I was skeptical of StarTech because I had owned a dual DVI switch of theirs that had much worse interference on shared audio then IOGEAR's professional switch did (although the IO Gear was over $120 more).
Anyway, for any one monitor switch I've found this may a fantastic job. Like the majority of switches, make your mouse, most complex rodents have issues but some advice I'm able to give from as being a many computer owner and user of many KVM (IOGEAR/ATEN/STARTECH) the USB Hub that is included with them will frequently handle your complex mouse, it is simply a button port won't. Same for IOGear and ATEN . The hubs have a tendency to handle a radio super-type mouse, as the mouse port pukes onto it.
Also lets me equal to 4 USB hub devices to every machine through the USB hub, that is a nice feature. I love this switch, and the cost was right. The FCC Guidelines that come with it (and knowing by using it prior) will put some interference on our audio ports UNLESS you put them on a difference POWER CIRCUIT (meaning fuse controlled outlet or breaker) than your KVM. There's not a way for this and all KVM I Own have this failure, which means you cannot knock them with this.
BTW: Altering the circuit for that KVM does have the desired effect but not everybody can perform this. Within my computer lab I've 3 power circuits, and so i could, and Can, though I use the IO Gear for speakers on the three monitor setup I am using (The IOGEAR controls two monitors and the laptop keyboard and mouse and the Starview controls I suppose it might control another audio basically wanted, and I've several things in to the USB hub). They're generous supplying 4 USB hub ports, just avoid something similar to place a hub in it. Read more › Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By Delaina on Feb 13, 2012 I've purchased a number of these KVM switches to make use of within my office. I have used them for any couple of years and they still work great. They using the monitors with 1920x1200 resolution. The only real factor I needed to do was converting VGA cable towards the DisplayPort because the new computers now come DisplayPort or HDMI. It is easy to setup. You need to buy cables and power separate though.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By fba on October 16, 2014
I selected this up in my work desktop to exchange another 4 port KVM. The older KVM I made use of had lots of issues with being linked to a Mac computer and your personal computer simultaneously. When both were connected, input around the Mac could be delayed and frequently lost making the KVM unusable.
I have tried personally other StarTech.com equipment previously, and generally been pleased with it, and so i made the decision to try it out. The end result, whilst not perfect, is miles away much better than the older KVM which i had. I presently possess the KVM linked to a house-build desktop computer, a present generation Mac small, a Chromebox, and a mature generation Mac small. I haven't had any issues with the input to the of individuals machines when utilizing this KVM.
Another problem my old KVM had this one does not, is by using the resolution around the monitor. After I booted a piece of equipment that wasn't the main one selected around the KVM, the device would usually finish track of its resolution set to something low, like 800x600. Then when I switched to the device, I needed to muck around to obtain the resolution set right. With this particular StarTech, all the machines boot towards the 1080p resolution the monitor supports, so I haven't got to wreck havoc on settings to have it to appear right. it simply works. (and, IMHO, "It just works" is one of the greatest degree of praise you are able to provide a KVM.)
Nevertheless, it is not perfect. About one in 20-30 switches I finish in an odd condition in which the screen shows the best machine, but the laptop keyboard and mouse don't appear to operate. Additionally, it appears to occur more frequently whenever you switch rapidly between devices. However, most time you are able to obvious this up by switching to a new machine, making sure the laptop keyboard and mouse will work there, and then switching to the device you need to focus on.

By G. Hobson on April 24, 2013
A great value for that cost. Only factor really you want it's was the opportunity to change which port is seen remotely - but you will pay more for your feature. To date so great.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback... Appreciate your feedback.If the review is inappropriate, Please tell us.

By tombot on December 14, 2014
It really works when i had wished. I love some mounting screw holes on every side. Evidently they're for mounting inside a 19 inch rack, but I needed to mount it beneath the desktop. And So I made my very own brackets and now I'm able to slide it in and out under my desktop. This is a nice space-saving idea. Why increase the clutter on top of the desk?
I did not need it permanently mounted, cuz then it might be harder to get at the cables.
The recording switches first, followed by the usb ports (mouse, keyboard) after in regards to a second or more.
Much faster compared to usb switching from the Belkin it replaced.
As others have noted, it does not possess a feature to remotely switch. And I believed that whenever the warranty expires, I'd hack in it and wire relays in parallel using the front panel switches to be able to allow remote switching. But then I found out that it has a 3 YEAR WARRANTY (Parts &lifier Labor). Wow! Now I must re-think that strategy.
And may you consider every other electronic items that obtain that lengthy of the warranty without having to pay extra?
They provide accessory brackets for 19 inch racks, but it might be nice when they also offered affordable plastic sliding brackets for mounting underneath the desktop.Comment Was this review useful for you?
