PROS: Works better than expected.
CONS: non yet
PROS: Works great and is a good value.
PROS: Easy to set up and I can run all of my PC's off of one keyboard and mouse. Feels solid and has performed flawlessly since my purchase. Did I mention price? I saved a nice bit with this unit compared to other offers available
CONS: None I can think of
The manual is the most mind-bendingly Broken English (SM) piece of confusion I think I've ever read, but that's pretty minor.
I've got a Win2K laptop that kept insisting it needed USB drivers, but trying a different port seems to have solved the problem.
I'm already looking to buy a second one!
Originally my order - which includes many parts and pieces - was missing this KVM. But a quick chat with Monoprice, and they resolved the issue immediately. (I mentioned it was missing in an email after hours on a Wednesday... I had email confirmation that the situation would be resolved... The missing KVM arrived on the following Monday. This is particularly impressive to me, since I'm in Hawaii.)
I removed my old APC and wiring from my rack, and replaced it with this equipment and the new wiring. Easy to install and setup. Works very nicely. The only caveat is that the cables are 6 foot in length, so my recommedation is to place this KVM in the center of your rack if you want to run cable management and still reach all your equipment. (This cable limit is the only reason I'm giving his product a "9" instead of a "10.") Having said that, I didn't mount mine in the center of the rack, but it was still a breeze to setup and use. The price made it a no-brainer.
Now I have a very happy IT department that can easily access all the server equipment in the rack - with PS2 plugs or USB. (My APC was an older model that supported only PS2 another good reason to replace it.)
PROS: Had doubts ,but I am 100% happy
CONS: Cords to short
PROS: 1) Comes with rack brackets and AC adapter. (4 port version doesn't)
2) Has no problem working with Dell keyboard, model KB212-B. (4 port version does)
