Installation is nothing more than plugging each set of included cables into the machines to be controlled. Worked with no problems. Slight delay as you switch between computers. Use the button on the Miniview to switch between machines or hotkey. Hotkey to another machine by pressing ALT-CTRL-SHIFT on the same side of the keyboard, then press 1,2,3, or 4 for the port desired and hit enter. Good device for the money.

-Dan quote

I purchased mine 8 months ago, have not had any problems with it. The ONLY negative to this KVM is that you can not gang or chain multiple units and control them without having physical access to the KVM's. </p> Meaning, if you hook two KVM's together, you can use keyboard controlls to switch ports on the FIRST KVM, but the second or any other's can not be controlled by keyboard. </p> This is really a small problem for average home users that just needs to switch between (up to) 4 PC's on one KVM. </p> And this KVM is also compatible with the SUN Keyboard module (80 dollars each) which would allow you to add a sun onto the KVM.
