    • "Works great, every time. Convenient size." by rschmidt on 2/4/2012
      Overall: 4.5 out of 5

      I'm not really sure what features the more expensive units could offer that this KVM switch doesn't do. I purchased this because my cousin wanted me to try to get a virus off her PC and I figured I'd be switching between my computer and her computer several times. I was, and this KVM switch worked great. It is low profile and about 2.5 inches square with two USB inputs for the keyboard and mouse and a monitor output. There is a monitor cable and single USB cable that connect to the PCs. Simply press the button to toggle between PC 1 and PC 2. There is a red LED that shows which PC is active. I did experience where if I started up a PC without it being selected I would get a "keyboard missing" error following POST, but once that PC was selected I was able to acknowledge the error and it would continue to boot. When this happened there would be a several second delay before the PC would seem to recognize the keyboard or mouse, but it would eventually recognize both.
