(3 stars) Upgrade failed

By: AlanM
I've had this for a couple years. Recently got a new mac 10.14.6 but when I tried to upgrade, the cable stoped working completely. Is there a way to reInitialize from scratch ????

Hello Alan, We apologize for the difficulties you're experiencing with our SVKMS2 after updating to macOS 10.14.6. This cable is compatible with macOS 10.14 and completely uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers should help fix this. If you require any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at www.startech.com/support where our Technical Advisors are available 24 hours a day, 5 days a week to provide support.

(3 stars) Ultimately, It Works

By: PeakA
Not intuitive. Instructions get Martian at just the wrong motion. Eventually, if you label your machines correctly, you notice the cursor moves from one computers' monitor to the other. Then it gets easier, though it should be considerably better all the way around. A step above ASCII.

(4 stars) Works flawlessly most of time

By: Koala
Been using for over 6 months, between a windows 10 machine and a mac mini. Works 90% of the time. The mouse gets stuck at times and will not switch. Keyboard works on both machines but caps lock and num lock do not work correctly as you switch machines.

MacOS Catalina (10.15) requires 64-bit software/drivers and unfortunately removes support for 32-bit software/drivers. We are working to retrieve updated drivers from the manufacturer of the chipset used in SVKMS2, however until we receive them, this product remains incompatible with 10.15. For it to work with your computer/system, you’ll need to either remain on 10.14 or reinstall 10.14 or an earlier version if you have already updated. We understand this may be frustrating and we apologize for the inconvenience. If you’d like to speak directly with one of our support team members, you can contact us at www.startech.com/support where our Technical Advisors are available 24 hours a day, 5 days a week to provide support.
