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.
