(4 stars) Good Product.

By:
Works very well in Windows 10, Easy to install. The only limitation is that the cables are too short. 24" more on each end would be dandy.

(3 stars) Easy to use and setup Windows 7

By:
I got this KVM switch to test and it is handy as most of my work is on site but sometimes I have to bring work home and I have to unplug my system to be able to work on the client computer. I could not make it work properly on Windows 8 but it works ok on Windows 7 and 10. The price is not bad and the Switch work well, just hope they can fix the problem with Windows 8. “I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.”

Hi, Thanks for your feedback and review. We are sorry this KVM didn't work with your Windows 8 computer. The KVM should work with Windows 8. We would like to help troubleshoot this situation so please get in touch with our Technical Advisors by clicking "Support" at the top of our website. Thank you.

(4 stars) Does what it's supposed to

By:
I got this unit as I am finding myself fixing my friends and families computers and was tired of constantly unplugging my PC to plug theirs in. It worked well on the Windows 7 PC's I tested but confirmed 8.1 was a no go. I will be trying a Windows 10 PC in a couple of weeks. Seems well built and the instructions are clear. Did not see any reduction in picture quality. I really enjoyed the toggle switch as it eliminates the need to be constantly bending over to reach for the switch on the unit as the case on most other KVM units. Having audio connections is a bonus as well. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review

There appears to be no quality loss for video which was very nice to see. The simple switch design is nice and easy to use. Overall the setup was simple and the way the product works is excellent.

(3 stars) USB Powered KVM Switch with Audio

By:
I have been in the technology business for over 35 years and for the past 20+ years I have been asked to provide unbiased reviews of various products from both the AV and IT world. In review of this product I have found that this unit worked fine switching back and forth between a Mac and a Windows 7 PC. I especially liked the QuickSwitch Button and also toggling by way of the Keyboard Hotkeys. The 3rd method of switching which is by the KVM Switching software was fine but not as easy as the other two methods previously mentioned. The only negative is that this switch works fine with my MacBook and Windows 7 PC, but does not work properly with Windows 8.1. In the box: -KVM Switch -Software CD -Instruction Manual In summation, solid product, easy to use. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Hello ChuckJ, Thanks for reviewing our SV211HDUA KVM switch. We apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced and would like to help. While the device itself will work with any operating system, the additional software that accompanies the SV211HDUA has been tested up to Windows 8, but not Windows 8.1 unfortunately. There are also no plans to update the software. We would suggest completely removing the software from your system to see if the issue persists. Please also try connecting the KVM to different USB ports. We also manufacture product SV231HDMIUA which is completely OS independent. It can be seen here: http://www.startech.com/SV231HDMIUA. Feel free to contact us if you would like to speak to a technical advisor regarding this issue. Please reference case number 303-248681 as well. Thank you.

(1 star) Does not work with Windows 8.1 Pro / USB3

By:
After multiple attempts at resolving an issue where Windows would display the error "USB device not recognized, has malfunctioned", StarTech recommended returning the product. The computer with the issue worked fine switching back and forth in its BIOS screen, so I ruled out hardware this way. Also, it does work fine between a Mac and a Windows 7 PC that we used to troubleshoot. After ensuring that all of the most recent Windows and System updates were installed relating to potential fixes for USB/power issues, we still were not successful.
