    Switch performs better than the one it replaced - and that switch alone cost more than this entire kit. It always responds to the keyboard shortcuts. Systems boot with keyboard and mouse functionality regardless of what port is active - including one that needed its port on the old switch to be active to boot properly.
    One minor issue - the power LED is very bright. It looked like a monitor was left on in the room. Covering the LED with a small piece of tape solved this problem.

    I had a iogear 4 port kvm switch, but had to upgrade to this 8 port. Worked great right out of the box. I have 3 windows desktops, 1 laptop and 2 Sun Solaris workstations. I had previously purchased a PS/2 to Sun converter box to make the Sun systems work.
    It s true about the power light, very bright... put a piece of electric tape over it and it s not as bad now.

    This is a nice inexpensive 8-port KVM. Build quality is similar to the more expensive equivalent Belkin KVM (which I also own). I bought this IOGear to replace a Belkin that now has display sync issues.

    However, the keyboard port switching hot-key on this IOGear KVM is not too friendly (loss 1-star rating because of it). You have to press (in sequence) SHIFT, CTRL, ALT, and then the port number (all within 1-second of each other). Not exactly the easiest to do. I wish they kept their old hot-key sequence (which was simply pressing the left or right CTRL key twice to go up or down a port).

    Would I buy this again? Yes I would.

    IOGear makes one that can be cascaded, which I may consider trying the next time around; but it is more expensive.
