I anticipated being able to use all the functionality keys on my Microsoft Office Keyboard. No such luck. The IOGEAR Tech Support reply stated that the keys could not be mapped. Overall, it does switch easily between 2 computers with no problems with the monitor, keyboard (other than what was previously described), and the mouse.

KVM works with Logitech Elite and Mx Mouse

on 6/6/2003

I just recently purchased this item. After looking at all the reviews on how it didn't work with wireless devices, I decided to try it because I was tried of swaping cables between two systems and guess what my wireless devices work!!! I have a Logitech Elite Keyboard and MX mouse. The only thing I don't like about the KVM switch is that there is some video distortion or blurriness against a light back ground (Outlook, Internet Explorer). Overall, it works with everything I have, I even plugged my wireless reciever in the back of the hub and it still works. I am using it now as I type. However, in order to do this you must first log into Windows XP then do it. I hope this helps.

You can save money and space by eliminating the need for extra monitors, keyboards, mice, and peripheral devices such as printers, scanners, zip drives, etc. Up to 127 different USB devices can be daisy chained from this KVMP switch.

USB and KVM technology together also makes cross-platform management easy. A single USB console can control a PC and a Mac, and share peripherals between the computers.
