Ease of Use

I went with this DVI based switch over the other one that also had USB and audio functionality for two reasons. 1) We also use this manufacturer at my work. 2) Higher resolution than the other manufacturer. I had to take a point off because I'm unable to do a function that I expected to be able to do. This is either because the instructions aren't clear, or the function isn't capable.

Unreliable Switch

on 6/20/2007

This product has been nothing but a headache for me. Be sure to check the compatibility list before buying this switch. Customer service is responsive but all they will tell you is "use a device that is listed on the compatibility list". However, this list is not easy to find; customer service sent it to me. Logitech SetPoint software will not work. The video occasionally doesn’t display when computer starts from hibernation. And the USB ports will fail sometimes, and I will have to reboot to get them to work again. Read More

Good build quality, solid enclosure. Unit seems to work as advertise after 3wks of use. One thing I have an issue with is the hotkey-switching feature. The function does work, however you must push the sequence of keys so fast that it usually takes several tries to get to work. I contacted tech support, which was very quick and responsive but did not have a firmware fix for this. In addition, it would have been more useful to have the additional USB hub ports on the front of the unit instead of the rear for obvious reasons. At this price point, I feel the increased resolution is a fair trade off for the other minor inconveniences. I would recommend this unit at this point. Read More
