Overview

This versatile USB KVM switch lets you share a DisplayPort workstation with two computer systems, providing control of a DP monitor, keyboard & mouse, plus an additional USB peripheral device.

To ensure compatibility with your setup, this KVM switch was rigorously tested with the most popular platforms including Windows®, Linux® and Mac computers, and is powered through your USB peripherals, meaning you won't require an external power source.

Astonishing 4K Picture Quality

With support for resolutions up to 4K at 30hz you'll be amazed at how this DisplayPort KVM flawlessly manages your graphics-intensive content. At four times the resolution of high-definition 1080p, this lossless performance makes the switch ideal solution for high-resource applications such as graphic design, CAD / CAM design, or health care imaging (MRI, radiology diagnostics, etc.). 

Plus, the KVM switch also supports 1080p displays, which makes it a great accessory for home, office or other workspace applications.

Multi-system access

Featuring DisplayPort 1.1 with 7.1 digital audio, plus a 3-port USB hub for your keyboard, mouse and an additional USB peripheral device, this KVM switch is perfect for accessing two separate systems using the same workstation - ideal for server control, simplifying access to multiple computer systems.

Hassle-free operation

This 2-port KVM delivers effortless operation with hardware and software switching, providing a simple yet comprehensive solution for switching between each connected computer. The switching software that's included gives you on-demand switching using an intuitive video interface. Hotkey control is also available when working with Windows computers, plus the switch features an easy-to-access toggle switch located on the front.

Notes:

  • To achieve the maximum resolution of 4K at 30Hz, a video source and display that support that resolution are required.
  • Hotkey switch commands are only supported when using Windows computers.

The SV231DPU2 is backed by a 2-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

(5 stars) Handy KVM

By:
Bought this over two years ago. The body feels high-quality and sturdy. So far, I've had no issues and often forget it even exists! The one wonky behavior is switching between computers but can tell it's due to daisy chained DisplayPort 27inch monitors, Win10 has improvements for this. The KVM itself is solid and supports DP 1.2.

(5 stars) Great value KVM - Perfect for Macs!

By:
GREAT PRODUCT - I was very pleased to find this KVM with Mini DisplayPort and USB for my two Macs. It works smoothly and transparently with a Mac Mini and MacBook Pro (2014) and Apple aluminum keyboard. Good value for around $100 street price. The KVM is solidly built with a metal case. Three USB device ports It does need to be reset every few months. Using it all day, every day that's not much to ask. GREAT SERVICE - After 22 months, one of the ports stopped working. StarTech technical support walked through troubleshooting with me via email. When we found the unit was defective, they sent a replacement under the two-year warranty with minimal hassle. I will definitely choose StarTech for my future needs.

(1 star) really terrible

By:
I have 2 computers and 2 monitors. I use this at work. whenever I switch between the two computers, i have to press several times to switch between the two. and it works intermittently. I came here to see if there is any firmware but none to be found. Also, when toggle between the computers, the keyboard doesn't recognize intermittently. we're i.t department. we have lots of keyboard to be tested. All of our staff has this and they all have exact same issues. I highly not recommend this.

Response from StarTech.com:
Malcolm, Customer Support
Thanks for sharing your SV231DPU2 KVM experience with us. We hope we can help. A single press of the button should allow you to switch between the two connected computers, and the keyboard/mouse should also reliably connect. We're sorry to hear this isn't happening in your setups. We are emailing the address provided with this review, to offer additional support.. We also have Technical Support Advisors available 24 hours, 5 days a week for live support by chat or phone.
