IOGEAR MiniView GCS1734 KVM Switch - 4 x 1 - 4 x SPDB-15

IOGEAR new MiniView Extreme Multimedia KVM and Peripheral Sharing Switch brings extra value to conventional KVM switches by offering USB peripheral sharing capabilities, audio and microphone support, and multi-platform support for Windows, Mac, and Sun systems using USB or PS/2(additional cables needed for PS/2, IOGEAR Part No. G2L5302P). You can save money and space by eliminating the need for multiple monitors, keyboards, mice, and peripheral devices such as printers, scanners, zip drives, and more. Up to 127 different USB devices can be daisy chained from this KVMP switch. Sharing speakers and a microphone also offers extra value and convenience for the users.

USB and KVM technology together makes cross-platform management easy. A single USB console can control PCs, Macs, or even Sun workstations, and share peripherals and audio devices between the computers. Any USB-enabled computers, using any USB-compatible operating system, can benefit from the efficiency, expense reduction and convenience of IOGEAR Miniview Extreme KVMP switch.

They do have a responsive support, but they just claim that it isn't possible to support multimedia keys. I entirely fail to see why that is the case: the standard multimedia keys have defined key codes. There's no good reason why the switch can't read those, and output them again.

* Affordable * includes power supply so that you can attach a keyboard with built-in usb hub. * All cables included
Does not emulate basic multimedia keys! That means if you have a play/pause/next/previous buttons, or volume control on your keyboard, it will not work when connected to this KVM. That's entirely inappropriate for something that calls itself a "multimedia" KVM switch.

This was very easy to install and use. Running 4 computers through a single mouse, keyboard and monitor. I will use again as my business needs increase.

What I like about it: The cables are removable and cables of longer length can be purchased. Control the KVM via hotkey or by buttons on the front of the KVM. Set up was easy and response rate is fine.

Simple design has a base to mount on side controlled by push buttons I don't use audio so I don't need the poser adapter So far it has the reliability and functionality I have come to expect from IO Gear I worked for a KVM switch maker for 11 year, and I own IOGEAR not their's.

It tends to insert random characters -- I had problems with other USB switches but this one has gotten worse over time.

Universal cables included
Performance, never rock solid for me, degrades over time

If there were an upgraded version with more recent USB standards and/or more robust wireless input device support, I'd upgrade in a heartbeat. I'm very happy with the unit in my current PC and Mac setup.

Very versatile. allows the user to switch USB accessories, audio & video feed along with keyboard, video and mouse or not, as needed.
USB 1.1. rather than USB 2 (or now 3) A USB cordless mouse or keyboard may not work with the dongle in the keyboard or mouse ports, but work for me in either of the two vanilla USB ports. Minus an egg for that.

Bought this the other day to control 2 F14 Laptops on docking stations, one is my daily use laptop and the other is my retired laptop that stills works exceptionally well. I also have an ESX server plugged into it. Worked right out of the box.

Small-footprint, lightweight, cables-included ... those are the good points. It works well with some systems, at least, the keyboard, mouse, and video (I don't use the audio often). Unfortunately, only the keyboard and mouse have worked on my network of MSI 880GM-E43 systems.

I have a 3 monitor set-up on one laptop, trying to change to have 1 monitor dedicated to a desktop (wired) and 2 monitors on my laptop wireless. I have Logitech K3 60 wireless keyboard and M215 wireless mouse.

Easy set-up. Cables provided fulfill most needs.
Doesn't seem to work with my wireless mouse and keyboard. Also have a problem switching between the two systems, probably just a configuration I haven't messed with yet.

Connecting two Windows (1 XP & 1 7) and Linux file server. First off, the HP mouse (USB) was causing everything to scroll down continually so had to switch to a USB to PS2 adapter and use an older keyboard and mouse to stop the continual scrolling.
