Great KVM

on 9/24/2004

Great KVM with one exception... the monitor always stays on.... I haven't used other 8+ port KVM's so I don't know if this is expected or not.

Product Overview

Your business is growing faster than you expected and four computers simply aren't enough to meet your needs? Not a problem. IOGEAR's new eight-port MiniView Ultra is just the tool you need to help reduce the need for redundant hardware. Eight monitors, mice and keyboards are simply too expensive, bulky and downright inconvenient for most system administrators. Why bother when you can control all eight, or even up to 512 computers with a single keyboard, monitor and mouse. Just think of the time, space and money you'll save.

But our MiniView Ultra is much more than a simple eight-port KVM switch. Built-in AutoScan mode lets you conveniently monitor every attached computer for a specified amount of time, while our On Screen Display technology allows you to assign a unique name to each computer and access it via a slick, menu-driven interface. With it's 1U, 19" rack-mountable casing and status-monitoring LEDs, the MiniView Ultra is the perfect switch for your server room or any other multi-computer environment.
