(3 stars) No hot-keys, needs POWER.

By: DrFranken
Unfortunately I read that this unit supports hot-key switching as do my other units but it does not. Why not is anyone's guess. It also does not come with a power supply. With my back-lit keyboard attached it refuses to work with any of the three computers I have. Adding a 2A 5V power supply was not enough. A 2.5A 5V supply was needed before the unit would provide any keyboard or mouse to any of the three computers.

Matt, Customer Support
Thank you for sharing your review of our SV431USB. This KVM switch does not support hot-keys as the USB ports on the switch are standard USB 2.0 ports and not specialized HID ports. While power may not be needed when using a basic keyboard and mouse without any special features, if your keyboard has a backlight and requires the full 5V at 0.5A, or if you have other devices connected that draw power from the USB ports, you may need to have a power adapter connected to ensure the USB ports are provided with enough power. If you have any questions or require any assistance we'd be happy to help look into this with you. 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 assistance.

(5 stars) 100% rock solid product.

By: RockwoodColin
I've been using this daily for several years and it has performed flawlessly. I love the simplicity of the controls and the small form factor. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

(5 stars) Does the job very well

By: Bob1024
I have been using this KVM switch for a year now and it is working perfectly. So far I have only connected 2 linux laptop ( one of them is 8 years old Intel basic CPU, 500MB RAM, Fedora 20 ), both configured with dual display, all working well with the switch. Bought from dabs.com.

(5 stars) The best KVM money can buy

By: Carlos Sanlucas
We utilize these switches every week for server and professional applications. They are worth every penny and yes - you need to buy mounting brackets and cables separately. Do the research! :)

(1 star) Missing Parts

By: cadams
Purchased this product recently. It doesn't include ANY cables, even though the Manual included lists them under "This Package Should contain" on Page 1. Why would the manual say that cables are included, when in fact they are not?

Hi there, Sorry for the confusion. The manual for the 4-port SV431USB also covers our 2-port version, the SV231USB. The 2-port model includes cables, as referenced in the manual, the 4-port model does not.
