I have had this item for 2 weeks now. It works well including usage with a MS optical trackball. All extra buttons on the mouse work as expected. Video quality is very good on a 21" monitor. One thing you should know: the gender of the cable ports were not the same as the existing KVM cables I already had.

I've had this swith now for ~8 months controlling between 4-6 x86 servers at any one time, it works well, I can safely boot any of the servers without worrying about whether I'm viewing that server or not. The only quirk about this KVM is that from time to time when I go to switch between servers it locks up -- which isn't that big a deal because I just push the two yellow buttons on the KVM at the same time to reset it, enter the KVM switch security password, and it continues on just fine with absolutely no interruption to any servers, just an inconvenience to me. I'd buy this product again in spite of this quirky behavior because it is reliable where it counts -- 24x7 server continuity -- and it's very affordable.

Product Overview

The D-Link DKVM-8E Keyboard, Video, and Mouse (KVM) switch allows you to take control of eight different server PCs using just one keyboard, monitor, and mouse. It's easy to use, powerful, and scaleable. In addition, eight DKVM-8E switches (banks) can be stacked together to control up to 64 PCs.

The DKVM-8E utilizes advanced microprocessor emulation to intelligently manage each KVM port. This allows simultaneous boot-up of all the attached PCs.

The DKVM-8Es intelligent microprocessors save CAPSLOCK, NUM LOCK, and SCROLL LOCK status for each PC. It supports VGA, SVGA and MultiSync monitors at up to 1920 x 1440 resolution. Support for AT type PC with serial mouse ports are included using a mouse conversion technology.

The DKVM-8E on-screen display (OSD) provides a friendly interface and features naming and selecting of a specific PC, as well as password protection for advanced security. Hot-plug, auto-scan, audible feedback and keyboard "Hot Keys" make this device simple to use and manage. Also, two control buttons located on the front panel allow you to select a specific PC among the attached DKVM-8E and all stacked switchs.
