      Connection took few minutes - there are lots of cables to be rearranged. After this no issues at all. Image quality on the screen (1680x1050) from standard PC and Dell E6400 laptop are fantastic. For unknown reason the laptop did not recognize the USB gear immediately, but after reboot (living it alone alive at the switch) everything got fixed. Video camera works great connected to the back of the switch, phone jack connected to Line Out on the front panel will cut off sound from the speakers, living it only to whatever is connected to the Line Out jack. I tested the front panel USB with stick drive and RCI to USB converter - works fantastic. Highly recommend this to professionals and amateurs! It is expensive, but it deserves the money!

      Comments about IOGEAR GCS1104 4-Port USB DVI KVMP Switch with Audio and Cables:

      This IOGEAR series of 2 port and 4 port KVMs have the best features for the lowest price in this range. The most impressive thing is that they spoof the usb and EDIDs from the output to every input. Meaning that when you switch between channels the other inputs do not 'lose the connection' to the switch. Only wish is that they came in a rackmount form.

      Comments about IOGEAR GCS1104 4-Port USB DVI KVMP Switch with Audio and Cables:

      I'd been wanting this for years, once I finally installed it. I don't even notice it. But it saves me tons of time and from ruining my connectors from switching between computers. The only draw back I've found is, there's no software to help you customize the programing. This only applies to advanced users. The product works great. But to change settings there are keystrokes to enable certain features. I was hoping for a little program that just had check boxes to let you select how buttons switched, or be able to change the keystrokes to switch computers from the keyboard. Now you have to change the settings by confusing and non-memorizable 3-5 button keystrokes.

        Comments about IOGEAR GCS1104 4-Port USB DVI KVMP Switch with Audio and Cables:

        I am using this KVM to share my 24" ASUS Proart monitor, keyboard and mouse with my work laptop (Dell), an old HP Laptop and a Macbook Pro. Everything works as expected. As other reviewers have noted, my Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse had to use the front "shared" USB port. I got tired of not being able to use the keyboard short cuts to enable partial switching, so I ended up switching out my nice keyboard for an older wired version. This product should support the wireless keyboard and mice that dominate the market and that is why it didn't receive five stars.

          I have three computers which I run though the switch. This is the second switch I have bought as the first one eventually went bad, but it has worked so well and is considerably less expensive than newer models that I wouldn't go to another model or manufacturer. I will point out one characteristic, however, if you have a wireless keyboard/mouse (I have a Logitech 5500) you can not run it through USB port on the switch. You must connect it directly to your computer. For my older computers I bought a simple USB extension cable to bring the port to the front of the machine. This device works really well.

                This KVM is used to control 3 PCs and 1 MAC. Setup was easy using the manual, which was detailed. The most amazing (and unexpected) feature is the ability to switch the KVM to one source and have the audio play out of another. On the multiple monitor setup we have we can watch and listen to TV or music one one PC and work on any of the other 3.

                The keyboard shortcuts that allow this took a day or two to remember but now are instinctive. We are very pleased with this KVM, which is an upgrade to an older rack mount PS2 type switch.

                The lighted control buttons on the front panel indicating what has been selected is a plus.

                      Switches computers fairly fast, including auxiliary USB. No obvious snags. I use a Macintosh keyboard and everything works as expected except the eject key, which is not important to me. Switching among Mac, Windows and Linux without a hitch. Solidly built and heavy. Both front and rear aux USB, which is nice. Also, if you turn off or suspend a computer it will automatically seek out the next one that's running (or do nothing if that was the last one closed). Can configure and operate from a wired Mac keyboard also (I don't have any Bluetooth and there are warnings regarding that approach). I was, however, not able to get it to work with VGA using any of the adapters I have. Don't count on mixing VGA and DVI therefore.

                          I had to upgrade my KVM when I upgraded my monitor, since My Dr. Bott KVM had VGA connections. This switch does more, and does everything very well. The supplied cables include an audio connector, so I can use my speakers with all four connected computers. Switching is fast and works perfectly. My only complaint is that some of the non-basic mouse functions do not work. So I keep a no-frills mouse plugged into the KVM, and have my Contour Design and Kensington mice attached directly to their respective computers.

                            Comments about IOGEAR GCS1104 4-Port USB DVI KVMP Switch with Audio and Cables:

                            I had to upgrade to a KVM with DVI ports when I upgraded my monitor. I had been using a Dr. Bott VGA/USB switch that was very basic, but extremely reliable. This IOGear unit seemed like the best fit, and in fact, it has been a pleasure to use. It is easy to set up, and in some ways is even simpler and more idiot-proof than the Dr. Bott. Switching between the four attached Macs always works perfectly. In addition, they can all share my SoundWorks speakers now, thanks to the audio ports on the KVM. The cables seem to be of very good quality. In 14 months of use, I have encountered no significant problems.

                            The only glitch I have encountered is that certain mice don't play well with it: the basic mouse functions will work, but more advanced settings in the mouse software don't work through the switch. This may be a problem with the mouse software; in any case, although it would be nice to share a single mouse, it isn't a big deal for me. I keep a basic Apple mouse attached to the KVM to use with the machines that aren't used often, and keep my Kensington and Contour Design mice attached to their respective computers.

                                I have had this switch for a little over a month, and so far so good. I would give it 5 stars, but there are a couple of things that I think they could have done better. One the cables could be longer, and two the video cable could have been a DVI-I to accomodate those that still have a PC with VGA output. I think the switch is made well, and so far works with my PC, Mac, and Laptop docking station without issue.

                                  I use this product to swap my USB keyboard, mouse, sound system, printers and digital HD monitor between 3 computer systems (it can handle 4 systems - allowing me to occassionally connect my portable when I need to).
                                  I have owned three previous models and this is the smartest and best KVMP that I have owned.

                                    This is a nice KVM switch. Comes with all the required cables, easy to install, and is working well with both Mac and PC. The only thing I don't like is that you can't use the keyboard hot key switching if your keyboard is plugged into the generic USB port instead of the keyboard-specific one.

                                      Good cables. Reasonable size. Unitized cables eliminate a great deal of clutter. Keyboard shortcuts too arcane.

                                        Set up was so easy that it almost did it itself. Worked right out of the box, no hassles. I would buy this product again without hesitation.
