We've had two of these installed at 24x7 workstations for over a year and I plan to buy another. No network management, just simple switching between PC systems in a confined space. I've had no problems with switching or PS2 recognition at all. The Tripp Lite B004-008 has not failed yet. For just over a hundred dollars (not including cables) and free shipping, and this KVM are a good combination if you just need a low cost, rack mount, easy to use KVM that holds up under multiple users 24x7.

Product Overview

Tripp Lite's B004-008, 8-Port KVM Switch, is a low-cost solution for IT managers needing a KVM switch for up to 8 CPU's. Use on a desktop or in the rack; comes with 19" rackmount hardware. This switch provides two convenient methods to access any PC connected to the unit: Port Selection buttons located on the front panel, or, Hot-Key commands from the keyboard. A powerful Quick View Scan Mode feature allows you to auto-scan and monitor the activities of all installed operating PC's, one-by-one. Choose from three different cable lengths to connect from the switch to the CPU: P750-006, P750-010, or P750-015. (For computers with USB keyboard and mouse inputs, use Tripp Lite B015-000, PS/2 to USB converter, in conjunction with the P750 cable kit). For a more feature rich 8-port KVM switch, with On Screen Display (OSD) menu functions, as well as expandability, see Tripp Lite B042-008. Constructed of heavy-duty steel housing. 1 year limited warranty.
