Problem with XP monitor power save.

by Steve Parry on 2/14/2007

I bought this product from because it is a trusted vendor. I bought the IOGear brand because I had previously had great service from a similar IOGear product & the description or this product was exactly what I was looking for. When I received the unit from I installed it as per directions. Everything worked as described. One thing that was NOT described and did not work as I expected it to was the monitor POWER SAVE function within Windows XP.

Was this review helpful to you?


Product Overview

IOGEAR's new MiniView III USB KVM and Peripheral Sharing Switch brings extra value to conventional KVM switches by offering USB peripheral sharing capabilities. 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. Any USB enabled computers, using any USB compatible operating system, can utilize the efficiency, cost reduction and convenience of IOGEAR's USB KVMP switch.
