For the price, this is an excellent KVM switch. While included cables would have been nice, they are definitely available for sweet prices at Monoprice. I only needed one DVI cable so I was able to utilize excess. The functionality of this KVM is excellent I did use a USB/PS2 adapter for my cheap mouse without any issues at all. Im very pleased with this product. Thumbs up MonoPrice!
I needed to share a mouse and keyboard between a new machine running Windows 7 and an ancient one running a special purpose OS based on Windows 2000. Several KVM switches I tried would not work with the older machine but this one does great.
Works as described. Be aware that the max resolution supported is only 1280x1024. I happen to prefer my monitors resolution at 1680x1050. I deducted a point for the resolution limitation and another point because it doesnt come with cables.
This item did not work for me. It doesn't look like the PS2 issue has been cleared up but I'm not using any PS2 devices (Mouse or keyboard) and not sure if that's causing the issue. I have a computer and Playstation 4 (HDMI to DVI cable) hooked up and get no green lights or any display. Dissatisfied with this since it was a Christmas gift and was looking forward to using it
I have my two computers hooked up to the unit. There are two red lights on the front, but no green ones as the super short instructions said there will be. Pressing the buttons on the front makes the unit beep, but the screens don't switch and the colors don't change.
Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about you experience with PID 4074. Has this worked properly for you initially? For troubleshooting purposes, have you tried switching the cables or connecting to a different source or display to see if that changes anything? Another thing you can try is power cycling the switch.
Disconnect everything from the switch including power and cables. After about 5 minutes, plug everything back in and power everything back on. Also try powering everything on from the display and work backwards in the chain to the source device.
Please let me know if the above steps yield any results. Thank you for your cooperation in the matter.
