I purchased this StarView KVM switch from BUY.COM on 12/9 and received it by noon on 12/11. Installation was a breeze and I was switching between computers in only a few minutes. I love the design of this box because all of the cables connect to the back. Other lower cost switches have connections on 3 sides of the unit which is an eyesore. This unit came with 2 sets of cables which can save you $20-40 by themselves. The switch gets its power from the computers so there is no need for a power supply. You can switch between computers by pressing a button on the switch or by a hotkey sequence (ctrl-ctrl-1 (or 2)) to select the computer. This switch is working flawlessly. I am very pleased with the design, the speedy delivery, and most of the cost. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another product from this company.

This was just what I needed for my home computer setup. It was easy to install and everything was included - including the cables - which, if bought separately would have made up more than 50% of the total cost. I was able to install it in less than 15 minutes and am now able to access both of my cpu's with one monitor/keyboard/mouse set. Thank you thank you thank you !!!

Product Overview

StarTech.com's SV211K is the reliable solution for call center, help desk and SOHO environments and when integrating enterprise computer systems together. The SV211K is a reliable computer management tool that allows you to control multiple computers from one source, minimizing downtime by making connected computers and input devices available as soon as they are attached.

A ready-to-use, out-of-the-box solution, the SV211K 2 port KVM switch kit comes complete with two reliable StarTech.com 3-in-1 cables to remove tangles and help organize your workspace.

Cable ports are located at the rear of the SV211K providing easy, no-nonsense cable identification and organization. Ports are switched by pressing a button on the unit, or by entering a simple keyboard hot-key sequence. The StarView prevents boot-up errors by providing keyboard and mouse emulation to the non-selected PC.
