    My previous KVM switch could not deliver enough resolution for my new graphics. The IOGEAR worked perfectly for a month until the number 2 mouse port died. Now the fun begins trying to get it replaced.

    I use this KVM at the office on my HP NC8230 laptop connected through a docking station, and my HP D530 desktop, both running Windows XP. I use it every week day, all day, and switch back and forth AT LEAST 15-20 times per day. I ve now been using it for about two years. MAKE SURE you use a native PS/2 keyboard with it. I had constant trouble trying to get a USB keyboard (with PS/2 adapter) to work with it. I was, however able to use a USB mouse with it.

    I have another one at home that I use with another 2 HP D530 computers, one running Windows XP, one running Linux. I previously ran an older system with an ASUS K7V motherboard and AMD processor in lieu of one of the HP D530 s - on this same KVM. Again, no problems whatsoever. Both of these model KVM s have been very reliable. I can think of only 1-2 instances in 2 years on either KVM where I had to physically reboot my machine due to a KVM glitch. Every once in a while (maybe 2-3 times per week), my monitors will start acting funny due to the KVM, but I just press the Esc key on my keyboard, and it resolves the issue.

    Oh, I ve been using HP keyboards for the most part (KB-0133), but I did initially use some other kind of PS2 internet keyboard on the older home system. No problems with either one.

    I see there are a few people who had a problem with this KVM. Aside from not having it list which laptop it doesn t fit, i don t see any problems.
    I ve had mine for over six years now & it still works great. It s self powered, has two attached cables & switches effortlessly between two computers with a double tap of the scroll lock button.
    I will say that you want to have your monitor running at the same setting on both computers, as the monitor may not understand the new setting (like ultra contrast desktop, vs ultra large icons). I ve used this with a CRT as well as an LCD monitor w/o any problems.

    Come 2009 & time to USB everything. oh oh! I tried (so far) only one PS2 to USB converter, & it wouldn t allow me the signal to use the newer computer (using a Saitek keyboard) :(. You can t just hook up one monitor, unless you leave the other computer on (but that defeats the switch.

    If you re looking to connect two PS2 (that means the green & purple plug thing off the mouse or keyboard, this is what you want. Each computer runs separately, you just view one or the other. I have both computers transferring data, or one burning movies & one on the net. Never had a hitch.
    You know which computer is on, by which light is on. The light next to the cable, is the one you are viewing. If you have the switch out of the way, use two different wallpapers.
    Anyhow, make sure you want the connector style, it doesn t do anything else. I hadn t needed to link it to a laptop, maybe I will & see if I can find this review & update it. Good luck
