        Comments about Gefen 8x1 DVI KVM Dual-Link Switcher:

        I am using this box to route numerous computers (both Mac and PC) to one Apple 30" monitor, keyboard and mouse. Now that it is setup, it works great. Out of the box, it was seeming not to function properly. Plug and play was not happening. The small manual that comes with the unit is surprisingly technical, and was required reading to figure out proper setup. One of 3 DIP switches on the board needed to be flipped to the on position. The switch is immediately accessible on the bottom of the case, under a piece of tape, without opening the unit. Once I figured this out everything worked fantastic. The different DIP switch configurations actually allow for greater product compatibility. The cost of the unit is a little steep, but all cables are included ( 8 monitor, 8 audio, 8 USB). The unit and cables are all of high-quality. The entire package feels tight and professional. I would recommend this product.
