This 4-port USB KVM switch offers native USB control of 4 computers using a single keyboard, mouse and VGA monitor peripheral set.

A versatile addition to any operating environment, the USB KVM switch is suitable for graphics-intensive applications, with support for display resolutions of up to 2048x1536 pixels.

A complete multimedia switching solution, the USB KVM Switch also supports audio switching between connected computers and allows you to "lock on" to the desired audio from one computer even if you're controlling a different computer.

Saving both install space and expense, this USB 4-port KVM switch features an integrated USB 2.0 hub, which enables you to share high-speed USB devices between computers, as if the peripheral devices were connected directly to the controlled (slave) computers - a cost-effective solution that eliminates the cost of duplicate peripheral purchases, with no compromise on functionality.

Designed to provide a dependable computer control solution, the USB KVM switch is backed by StarTech.com's 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

Monitors may begin flickering when they receive a signal of insufficient quality. There are a few potential fixes available that will help to improve the signal quality in order to eliminate flickering:

  • Replace Video Cables with high-quality Video Cables (e.g. upgrade DisplayPort 1.2 Cables to DisplayPort 1.4 Cables).
  • Use shorter Video Cables to reduce signal attenuation.
  • When possible, remove Video Adapters to use native Video Connection Types (e.g. go from VGA to VGA, or DisplayPort to DisplayPort)
  • For DisplayPort Monitors, try changing the DisplayPort Version on the Monitor. For information on how to change your Monitor Settings refer to the Manual from the Monitor Manufacturer.
  • Update the Drivers for the Computer’s GPU to the latest available from the Monitor Manufacturer.

If the keys on your keyboard are repeating, complete the following:

  1. If the KVM you are using has USB ports, you can move your keyboard to the USB hub port on the back of the KVM (the USB hubs are marked).

Note: When you move the keyboard out of the keyboard port, you will not be able to access the hotkeys.

  1.  You can adjust the typematic rate in your operating system’s settings. Depending on the version of Windows you are running, you can adjust the typematic rate by doing one of the following:
    • Click Control Panel > Keyboard > Speed. Adjust the repeat delay and repeat rate until the keys no longer repeat.
    • Click Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers. Right-click Keyboard Settings. Adjust the repeat delay and repeat rate until the keys no longer repeat.

Before You Buy

Whether a specific mouse or keyboard will work with StarTech.com KVM switches can depend on the type of mouse or keyboard you use.  Any mice with additional functionality or keyboards that are not standard 104 key keyboards could cause issues.  This includes wireless, gaming, combination (one USB receiver for both the mouse and keyboard), and Apple keyboards.  We recommend that you use a standard wired mouse and keyboard with our KVM switches, especially when you troubleshoot issues.

If you cannot get a specific mouse or keyboard to work with your KVM switch, connect the mouse or keyboard into the USB hub ports, if available (they are marked on the back of the KVM switch). If the KVM switch has hotkey functionality, you will lose the functionality when using these hub ports.
