Usable – Automatic KVM 2-Port Switch with Cables Reviews

posted by bombshop on 03/08/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Does not need external power, uses the power of either one of ps/2 ports.
Quick switching via button or hot key combination (scroll lock -> scroll lock -> 1 or 2)
Just plug and use :)
Cons:
Has a problem with sharpness on LCD screens, The image is a little blurry (sometimes can hurt eyes), maybe solved with ferrite core??
Doesn't have option to disable beeping.
Manual comes in Chinese, you will not need it except for finding the hotkey combination which i wrote above.
Other:
The housing had some very little cracks when it arrived especially in the corners of connector windows. The computer indicator leds are bright red.
Flashing means searching for input (ie. after tapping scroll lock 2 times it waits for you to press either 1 or 2, flashing )
Bottomline:
A definitely must have, saves lots and lots of time. Get it unless you can find a better price / performance ratio (if you find it inform us)
