IOGEAR MiniView Ultra GCS138 KVM Switch - 8 x 1 - 8 x mini-DIN (PS/2) Keyboard, 8 x mini-DIN (PS/2) Mouse, 8 x HD-15 Video - Rack-mountable

Your business is growing faster than you expected and four computers simply aren't enough to meet your needs? Not a problem. IOGEAR's new eight-port MiniView Ultra is just the tool you need to help reduce the need for redundant hardware. Eight monitors, mice and keyboards are simply too expensive, bulky and downright inconvenient for most system administrators. Why bother when you can control all eight, or even up to 512 computers with a single keyboard, monitor and mouse. Just think of the time, space and money you'll save.

But our MiniView Ultra is much more than a simple eight-port KVM switch. Built-in AutoScan mode lets you conveniently monitor every attached computer for a specified amount of time, while our On Screen Display technology allows you to assign a unique name to each computer and access it via a slick, menu-driven interface. With it's 1U, 19" rack-mountable casing and status-monitoring LEDs, the MiniView Ultra is the perfect switch for your server room or any other multi-computer environment.

This unit stopped working just days after the "return window". We are left with a defective unit and no ability to return and exchange for a working unit.

These units are showing up new on eBay for very reasonable prices. I liked the first one so much that as soon as I discovered I could daisy chain them I purchased a 2nd unit. These can be rack mounted to can be used in any location of your choice.

If you need access to more than one machine at once, this is a great spacesaver.

Easy to use
Sometimes the video settings need to be adjusted

Unit functions fine as a KVM. The HotKey capability is somewhere between useless and dangerous. The key combination has to be done exactly in sequence and includes the enter key. If you mess up you end up executing some command unintentionally.

This cost a fraction of the price of a USB version and using cheap 2-1 converters works perfectly. Excellent product.

The product came with two defective KVM cables (mouse terminations were bad). I notified IOGEAR regarding this but they have ignored me...no replacements have arrived nor has IOGEAR indicated that they would replace the defective cables. On-line support leaves much to be desired...

I have had this KVM for 1.5 years now, and it is a good product. I found that it does have some issues, although I am anticipating that I will keep this KVM for some time to come. Let me get in to the pros and cons. Pro === * Comes with cables.

Bought this because our server room was getting more computers than our old switch could support. This performs exactly as it should with no hiccups at all. I did have an issue with the keyboard and mouse not responding on one of the servers, but I finally narrowed it down to bad ports on the...

Works better than some $800 switches. Supports both USB and ps/2 style KB and mouse, though the USB cables are optional. Works like a charm, plug-n-play. Supports very hight resolution too.

I've had this unit for several months in my home office to control 8 servers/PC's. Overall, it works great and is easy to install and setup. It functions just fine for office or server environments. The unit itself is very heavy weight and seems built quite rugged.
