(1 star) Stops working with Windows update

By:
Passable on windows 8. (Slow switching and some non-switching problems requiring reboots) Updated to Windows 10 (forced due to PC Update) and now the KVM does not work at all.

Response from StarTech.com:
Brian, Customer Support
Thanks for sharing this feedback. We're very sorry to hear the KVM switch stopped working after updating your PC. This KVM switch does work in Windows 10. We'd like to help troubleshoot this situation with you. We've also responded to the email you sent us about this subject.

(5 stars)

By:
This is a very nice KVM switch. Solid construction. It switches audio as well. it even picks up the wireless mouse/keyboard receiver (on both computers!) when it's plugged in the USB hub on the switch.

(4 stars) When you're done with KVM failures

By:
To begin, I am a reviewer that gets access to products in exchange for an unbiased review. In my case, I frequently upgrade monitors and components. Where possible I try to use Networked components and share them, but in my office I have a desktop as well as a laptop. I got really tired to flipped back and forth between them so I started with a different KVM that I got from StartTech. Based on my experience with it, I decided to try one for some of my older components. I have several monitors and components that are a little older but in great shape. I didn't want to buy additional items for newer laptops when I had existing ones that would work. This arrived and I was really pleased with it. The first thing you'll notice is the construction. This isn't a toy, it's not a beginner KVM and you don't need a lot of knowledge to use it, but if you're tired of playing with cheaper models this is for you. The only thing I'd suggest it to make sure you understand the product. If you need VGA ports, this is for you. If you have mixed monitors with VGA and DVI this is perfect. If you don't and only have HDMI, you'll need an adapter but would be better off getting their HDMI enabled model. In any case, the biggest metrics I care about other than ultimately functioning is the setup time and ease of use. Setup will take you about 2 minutes if you have the right components, if you need adapters you'll be set back by another minute or dead in the water if you're missing them - but that applies to everything. It's a few minutes to set up, not even a minute to figure out how to use. You'll have two full ports outside of the base, USB ports and shared microphone ports and headphone ports. Built well, works well, easy to use. What else can you ask for?

(5 stars) As easy as 123.

By:
Superb bit of kit, Typical Scenario, two tower servers, one tower style UPS. two LT06 tape drives. Virtually no space for one monitor keyboard and mouse, let alone two. Solution = This little baby, connect all the cables (You supply these) but it is as easy as 1 2 3. plug in the mains a wow instant push the select button to trigger what server is required.
