I was searching for an inexpensive solution to reduce the clutter of having multiple computers. I was thinking about the Linksys switch but my experience with Linksys products has not been the greatest. When I saw the D-Link switch I decided to give it a try since I have been very happy with my D-Link wireless card. I have only been using this switch for 2 weeks but have yet to have any problems. This switch worked flawlessly right out of the box with both Microsoft and Linux. The 2 cables that it came with were definitely an added bonus since you have to figure that a KVM cable is going to cost at least $10 each. All in all I figure that the price of the switch is a little misleading, since it does include 2 KVM cables, which are not included with any other brand I researched, the real price of the switch would be closer to $39. The main issue that I have seen with other KVM switches is the quality of the monitor resolution degrading, with this switch I have not had any quality problems. I would definitely recommend this product.

I bought one of these with a little trepidation - how good could it be for the price, esp. with 2 KVM cables included? Well, it is awesome! It does not need a DC adapter; the included cables are very good; and the switch transmits even a 1280x1024x85Hz signal with almost unnoticeable image quality reduction. At lower resolutions like 1024x768, the picture is excellent. The keyboard hotkeys are very convenient, and in general the unit works exactly as well as I had hoped. <p> The only quibbles: the connectors are a tiny bit cheap-feeling. The connections for your 4 PCs are spread across the two long sides, while the console connections are on a short side; this makes it inconvenient to put the unit somewhere without a lot of surrounding room and cabling that is a little messy. <p> But for the price and the quality, these are small complaints. I would certainly recommend the DKVM-4K - it performs as well as the multi-hundred$$ KVMs at my company do, and it does not even need a DC adapter! One of my PCs also has "power on by keyboard" and this works through this unit also.
